Japan 35 300 ? It likes 7 years agoyou all said I got my information wrong and yet you obtained yours from Wikipedia. ???
If you want to look at real, actual economic data, not just some gebbrish that anybody alter, such as that in Wikipedia, use the CIA world factbook. The data on here is done by a US government agency and it is updated frequently (notice most GDP figures are in 2008). Besides this, you can also use referencefrom the IMF or the World Bank. THese are the only 3 real sources. Other sources besides these are not usually not done by certified professionals; anyone can easily calculate per capita GDP by dividing the GDP by the population, but that number would be invalid because it does not reflect inflation/deflation; there're other factors as well...
From this source, singapore would be the 9th richest country and the richest one in Asia; hong kong is 2nd on the list, which is no surprise
The GDP per capita for the UK 37,400, which means that London's capital would hover around that number. Normally, the per capita income of the largest city does not deviate much from national capita,especially in an industrialized country since most economic activities concentrate in urban areas. You can think of per capita GDP in these countries as the average per capita income of all of its urban areas.
The per capita income of tokyo is ~38,000, while Japan's is 35,300; in the US, most of its major cities have a per capita income of ~45000-50,000, leading to the 48,000 figure. Therefore, from the per capita income given for United Kingdom, I can estimate that of London to be in between 37,000-40,000; when you convert this number to the pounds, it is less than 30,000. and if you want to compare standard of living in Britain with other countries, you have to take into account this number. although the UK may have better infrastructure(healthcare, transportation), the citizens of Dubai have more money to sparse, and possibly a better life because their wages can buy them more material wealth than an average person in London. the migrant workers normally do not reside in Dubai after they have finished their work and therefore are not a part of the wealth-gap concerns.
last but not least, the UAE GDP is growing at 8.5% , while that of the UK , US as well as every major EURopean countries are contracting in the depression; expect the figures to change
