      Many live in countries, like Brazil and India, that seem to have escaped from the third world. And 60 or so small poor countries retain third-world characteristics: aid dependency, corruption.   I have just finished reading How Rich Countries Got Rich And Why Poor Countries Stay Poor by Erik Reinert. The book is interesting for it engages what should be the main question of economics, why are some countries rich and other countries poor? This crucial question is woefully under researched and barely.

      *Third world countries are the other 1/3rd of the world including rich countries such as Saudi Arabia to the poorest countries that werent alligned with either first or second world. Asked in Ethiopia.   Ranked: The Richest Countries in the World. Since the financial crisis, global private wealth has been steadily growing. In fact, overall private wealth worldwide reached $ trillion in , which is a 26% increase over the past decade.

        You can still be successful and make money living in a third world country. The internet raised the bar in terms of opportunities and, now, lots of people can achieve what they want.   In the past years, the total product of the sixteen countries considered here has increased sixty-fold, their population more than four-fold, and their per capita product thirteen- fold. Annual working hours were cut from 3, to less than 1,, which means that labor productivity increased about twenty-fold.

Because many countries in the Third World were impoverished, the term came to be used to refer to the poor world. "This classification is now out-of-date, insulting and confusing.".

In the Third World developing countries, like India and especially Pakistan, there are four distinct types of educational institutions: Firstly: The elite English-medium schools that offer courses.

Mao Zedong had developed the Three Worlds Theory; however, after the dissolution of Soviet Union, Third World has been used interchangeably with least developed countries and somehow conveys poverty.

Nevertheless, the term Third World has also been used to describe some rich countries with very high Gross Domestic Product or even high Human Development Index; therefore, poverty is not 5/5(9). the term ‘Third World’, to explain why doubts have been expressed about the legitimacy of such a label.
