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.

GDP per capita is the GDP divided by the population. What's your point? Greece and Portugal have a lower GDP and GDP per capita than Saudi Arabia and they have less poverty. Maybe because the GDP of saudi arabia is only in the hand of the few rich families?
Anyway, this discussion is degenerating. I was just pointing out that you shouldn't call those who don't believe in free market clueless. They just have different opinion.
