when people say "third world countries" many dumb americans always take this as a negative... "Rishi, why do you want to move to a third world country"... im like its not "third world" as you think of it, its developing..

sigh....

no way! qatar is way too far. and qatar still needs to diversify its economy. its only natural gas right now. and bahrain is a developing country still far from being developed. bahrain doesnt have the oil wealth fo teh UAE but it has better human rights and better diversified economy, but because it doesnt have the money UAE has it doesnt have as much developement, but since its a small island it will get there soon.

Meanings for words and terms can change as situations change you know. I was really surprised and intrigued about where these terms come from. But they are now generally used to refer to developed, developing or underdeveloped countries.

However, to makes things easier shall we use geographical terms.

More economically developed countries (MEDCs)

Less economically developed countries (LEDSs)

I would say the U.A.E is certainly an MEDC. It may still be developing, but it has a very strong economy and alot of stability for future growth.
Human rights the U.A.E does fall back a little on. I think this could be attributed to how recently it was a LEDC. LEDCs generally have poorer human rights and other social problems. Generally these things take much longer to change than an economy does as it requires people attitudes to change. The U.A.E is actually seeing an abnormally accelerated development in these areas as well (although not as dramatic as the economic development) mainly due to a huge influx of people from existing and long standing MEDCs.

Qatar by the end of the year 2006 will surpass Luxembourg as the wealthiest nation. The LNG exports will hit its peak by 2012 and Qatar's economy is expected to triple in a span of 10 years. How you consider it backwards is beyond my comprehension. Qatar will have more cash to spend on projects than almost all Gulf nations barring UAE. That says a lot when you can surpass a nation like Kuwait with 10% of the world's crude. After Dubai, Doha is the nation with the most construction projects for itself these are statistics of today not of tommorow or speculation.

just out of interest.... the U.A.E too has 10% of the World's oil reserves, with 9% in Abu Dhabi and 1% in Dubai.

^ and 6% of the world gas but that isnt what he meant.

He was refering to the GDP per capita.

I disagree shayan, I think the other Emirates have pretty developed Infrastructure as well, and their economies are for the most part diversified as well. Abu Dhabis dependence on oil decreases steadily.

thanks

second world is meant to be for the communist governed countries
well, we're not really communist, are we?

the classification of 1,2,3 is useless these days, totally outdated

1st world is meant to be for the powerful industrial nations

if the uae were bigger and older it would be 1st already

somehow dubai is between 1 and 3 but is not 2


there is no classification for countries such as kuwait and uae,...
