Remember the rich gets richer and the poor get poorer. Once upon a time there was no third world (not so long ago). The third world is going to be bigger and bigger.


There has always been a third world, developing world etc. The only time when there wasn't a 'third world' was when the west was raping and pillaging natural resources in what was known as their 'empire'. Third world is all relative. Hell, going by the GDP per capita comparison between NZ and American, NZ comes off looking like some third rate backwater.

The GDP and all that shit doesn't measure poverty. It's the sum of the dollars of the capital and that of the salaries of the workers, and just that. Countries like Saudi Arabia and Brunei have a high GDP, but it's all in the hand of a few and poverty is a real problem in both those countries, despite the high GDP.

Do you know the difference between GDP and GDP per capita? Saudi Arabia's GDP per-capita is $21,200, which is lower than NZ (based on PPP). But hey, don't allow annoying little 'facts' get in your way of a voice spew of hatred against me.
