Productivity and Growth: Crash Course The Difference between the United Kingdom, 1 month ago   08:51

Why are some countries rich? Why are some countries poor? In the end it comes down to Productivity. This week on Crash Course Econ, Adriene and Jacob investigate just why some economies are more productive than others, and what happens when an economy is mor productive. We'll look at how things like per capita GDP translate to the lifestyle of normal people. And, there's a mystery.

Sure, the economic reason why poor countries are poor is .... but hey white people there is also a historic reason. poor countries are poor because of colonialism (among other things of course)

PIB per capita indica a riqueza da população. É o pib dividido pela população. Países como a China podem ter PIB maior que Singapura, mas talvez não PIB per capita maior. O PIB per capita pode ser limitado pelo efeito da desigualdade.
Países são mais ricos são mais produtivos. FATORES DE PRODUÇÃO.
Terra. Trabalho. Capital e capital humano.
Finding new ways to organize production is virtually free.

McDonald's has a higher GDP than most nations of the world, and all they do is have the clown sell food on a franchise menu. I believe GDP is culture based, it is completely dependent upon how the government, the people, the language, the culture (their myths, storytelling, and beliefs), the law, and how the law is made (rule of law of a common law of the land versus rule of man of individual leaders) responds to their environment.
Step 1.Type in google "countries by average IQ"
Step 2.Check images.
Step 3.Look at any image that shows the map of the whole earth.

Makes you think.
Race is real and IQ is the main determinant of national economic productivity— Zimbabwe was the breadbasket of Africa when it was Rhodesia
