Not sure about those figures, where did you get them from?

The CIA usually seems to produce different figures from the other, neutral organisations that produce PPP figures such as the IMF, World Bank, OECD etc.

Seriously, where is Guernsey?










Along with Jersey it's a tax haven where rich people put their money to avoid paying for their fair share of public services in the country where they live and therefore it is very rich.

here's the article from this week from reuters:


Qatar's per capita income rises to $40,000

Posted: Wednesday, May 18, 2005

Doha

Per capita income in Qatar has risen to $40,000, the country's economy and trade minister said. 'We enjoy one of the world's highest GDPs per capita at almost $40,000 per head and, conservatively, exports are growing at over 10 per cent per annum,' said Shaikh Mohamed bin Ahmed Al Thani.

He was speaking at a seminar to promote Qatar's international financial centre, which opened in Doha this year.

'The financial capacity of Qatar is enormous with around $100,000 billion earmarked for investment to 2010... Qatar's GDP is growing at over 10 per cent per annum,' he added.

Qatar's economy grew by around 20 per cent in 2004, with per capita GDP touching $33,600, according to World Economic Forum statistics published last month.

Analysts say Qatar is the wealthiest, fastest-growing country in the Arab world, with the world's third-largest gas reserves and a population of less than 800,000.-Reuters

It's not the same thing, this list is for PPP (adjusted for price levels).

The per capita incomes of oil and gas rich countries can vary enourmously from year to year depending on the oil price though so your quote is probably right. How much of that money actually goes to the regular people of the country in salaries is a different matter, most of it will be profits of multinational corporations and tax income for the government not income of individuals.

um.. no but CIA has huge mistake here.. they don't actually use appropriate method to calulate the measurment.. they use something special calculation.. so called " CIA calculation.." which is so weird.. and you know what.. U.S' ppp is over 42000$ and Ireland's ppp is surely over 37000$..
also other figures are very strange compared to economist or IMF's figures.

I agree that CIA seems to be the least reliable of the organisations who do these calculations. Ireland does seem too low and also Hong Kong is usually lower than it is here.
