While these factors are only a drop in the ocean regarding what makes a country economically successful, the poorest countries in the world get these factors all wrong. While the availability of natural resources is the foundation of an economically robust country, utilising the resources well is a whole other aspect. This is not civic education 101, so we will get straight to the point and list the countries yet to realise self-actualisation. Here are the top 10 poorest countries in the world as of 2018. 10. Madagascar – $1477 9. Guinea – $1388 8. Eritrea – $1210 7. Mozambique – $1208 6. Niger – $1069 5. Burundi – $951 4. Liberia – $934 3. Malawi – $819 2. The Democratic Republic of Congo – $753 1.

Libertarian Bionationalism: Genetic Infrastructure
 
06:28
TEXT: http://libertarianrealist.blogspot.com/2015/04/genetic-infrastructure.html TWITTER: https://twitter.com/GetRealist Music: Autumn Thunder Heroes of the War by David Robidoux The people of a nation make up what may be called its genetic infrastructure. The genetic infrastructure of a nation is its most valuable material asset – more valuable than its roads and bridges, more valuable even than all the land contained within its borders. A nation’s gross domestic product is driven by the productivity of its people. Sub-Saharan African countries are rich in natural resources but poor in terms of per capita GDP. Singapore, on the other hand, possesses virtually no natural resources yet exhibits very high standards of living. Haiti is situated on land suitable for a tropical paradise. But it is instead a land of abject poverty. From the slums of Haiti to the ghettos of Detroit, from the favelas of Brazil to the townships of South Africa, people of sub-Saharan African descent express their genotype through the communities they create. The same can be said of people of European descent. From the frigid climes of Iceland to the Land Down Under, from the productive Boer farms of South Africa to the expat communities of Mexico, from the Whitopias of Montana to the Gates of Vienna, European people grow societies with European characteristics wherever they plant their genetic seeds.

Avoiding the Oil Curse: The Case of Norway | Institute of Politics
 
01:02:53
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg of Norway addressed the topic "Avoiding the Oil Curse: The Case of Norway" at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Harvard Kennedy School. Stoltenberg discussed how the "Oil Curse" occurs in countries with natural resources, noting the negative relationship between countries with a large amount of natural resources and real GDP per capita. Stoltenberg focused on the Norwegian experience and how although oil and gas has a large impact on the economy it is balanced in a way to combat the common "curse." Stoltenberg highlighted other elements of the Norwegian economy that make the country exemplary in social equality including high employment and the dual maternity, paternity leave granted to citizens.

021 - Environmental Economics In this video Paul Andersen explains how economic models, like supply and demand, can be applied to environmental systems. The market forces will not protect environmental services until proper valuation and externalities are established. The wealth of a nation can be more accurately measured through the sustainability of the economic model. Do you speak another language?

James explains: http://bit.ly/1Pzy1k5 ____________ European economies were so closely connected that some people expected they have to avoid another world war or destroy their finances, but in fact World War I had taught them how to prepare for just such a scenario. Germany, France, and Great Britain all invested in their military before war broke out. When evaluating these economies to see how war would affect them, we look at four main factors: GDP, population, territorial extent, and per capita income. Broadly, this helps us determine how resilient, expansive, self-sufficient, and developed a nation is. All of those factors determine how a nation must conduct its war. For example, the vast territorial holdings of the British Empire meant that they had vast resources to draw upon but needed a long time to mobilize them, which helped Germany determine that they needed to strike fast and win big if they hoped to win the war before Britain's full resources came into play. Japan also estimated that they could win a war in the Pacific if they managed to win before the US had been involved for more than 6 months. These calculations drove the early strategies of the Axis powers, but the participation of the US would later prove to be a crucial factor. ____________ BONUS!

Top Ten Lists of Poor Countries In The World 2017
 
03:23
The ranking was published in February 2017 and based on data from the International Monetary Fund. The magazine ranked the world's countries according to their gross domestic product (GDP) based on purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita. The PPP takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of the countries to compare living standards among the different nations. Most of the countries populating the top of this ranking are under authoritarian regimes where corruption is rampant. This a big deterrent to foreign investors, even if some of those countries have huge amounts of natural resources. The GDP per capita listed represents the amount of wealth produced in 2016 and is expressed in international dollars. FOLLOW...!!!

The Central African Republic is a diverse country, located in Central Africa. Despite its violent uprisings that define its history since independence from France, the country still retains a lot of potential for development, as it is rich in natural resources. The lands of the Central African Republic have been a cradle for human kind for thousands of years, so it’s definitely an interesting place.

The present-day capital of CAR, Bangui, rests beside the River Ubangi. Places of interest include the colourful Central Market, the Boganda Museum, the Arts and Crafts School, the cathedral and the Saint Paul Mission. 2. At Bouar, in the east of the country, see burial mounds thought to be thousands of years old, studded with tanjunu (upright megaliths). About 2,500 years ago local farmers set up megaliths weighing several tons each near Bouar. The cooperation necessary to make and position these monuments suggests that they were built by large social units. 3. Boali is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ombella-M’Poko. Situated on the Mbali River, Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric dam. The Falls of Boali are 250 m wide and 50 m high. 4. The population of the Central African Republic has almost quadrupled since independence. In 1960, the population was 1,232,000; as of 2014, it is approximately 4,709,000. The nation is divided into over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own language. The 2 official languages are French and Sango, CAR being one of the few African countries to have an African language as their official language. 5. From the 16th to 19th century, the people of this region were ravaged by slave traders. The French occupied the region in 1894. After World War II a rebellion forced the French to grant self-government and in 1960 it became independent. 6. The three most important parks are Manovo-Gounda St Floris, known for its high concentration of hippos; Bamingui-Bangoran in the north; and Dzanga-Sangha in the southwest. The game population of these national parks is impressive. It is also possible to view gorillas in Bayanga. 7. Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2014, the country had the second lowest level of human development, ranking 187th out of 188 countries.

7 Facts about Bermuda

In this video you can find seven little known facts about Bermuda. Keep watching and subscribe, as more British territories will follow! You can now support this channel via Patreon, by accessing the link bellow. Thank you! https://www.patreon.com/7facts Learn, Share, Subscribe US States & Territories https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZJ71IJGFRT2EjuHJUt4-YZ59SZNc8ch 206 Countries in One Series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZJ71IJGFRR54b-LlPPw6YcUFiBEEP6G Social Media: https://twitter.com/Sebastian2Go https://www.facebook.com/official7facts ------------------------------------------------ More information about the video content bellow: 1. First and foremost, Bermuda is not in the Caribbean. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1030 km from the United States’ East Coast. Bermuda is a cluster of 181 islands. The islands of Bermuda are named after Juan de Bermúdez who claimed the islands for Spain in 1503, though he never actually landed there. Bermuda became a British colony in 1707. It is now the oldest and most populous remaining British Overseas Territory. 2. Bermuda was settled by accident in 1609 after an English ship wrecked off the island’s shores. 3. During the 1700s, the island did not have much natural resources to reap. What they did have though, is what the ocean provided, along with the sturdy cedar trees that grew all over the island. Therefore, it made sense then, that they turned to shipbuilding and privateering – or in other words, piracy. The Isle of Devils, as it was called, was a strategic location when ships would sail between England, Spain, and France, and the Caribbean and the New World (North America). Bermuda was famous for not only capturing merchant ships that made the mistake of sailing into the wrong local waters, but they also plundered all the way from Boston to the Turks Islands and Bahamas. 4. The Bermuda Triangle, allegedly an area in the Atlantic of unexplained disasters or disappearances, was first mentioned in 1964. 5. There is no public water system on Bermuda, as the island has no natural source of freshwater. Bermudians have to rely on rainfall to fill up their water tanks, greatly helped by the shape of their limestone roofs. 6. At 53 km sq, Bermuda is about 10 times smaller than the island of Montreal, but is actually the third most densely populated place in the world, with a population per sq mile of about 3000 people. It also has one of the world's highest GDP per capita. There is no corporate income tax, making it a popular tax haven for the ultra wealthy. 7. Hamilton is the capital of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. It is the territory's financial centre and a major port and tourist destination. Its population of 1,010 is one of the smallest of any capital cities.

Top 10 Richest Countries in the World 2016
 
03:36
Top 10 Richest Countries in the World 2016 10. Saudi Arabia Per capita income: $56,000 Saudi Arabia has an oil-based economy with solid government control over major economic activities. Oil represents almost all of Saudi revenue and export earnings. Saudi Arabia is the world’s leading oil exporter and second-largest producer. Out of a population of 28 million, eight million are foreign expatriates. Saudis may lose their place among the top 10 wealthiest countries soon, as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted in October that the kingdom may run out of the financial assets needed to support spending within five years, if the oil price stays at its current weak levels. 9. Switzerland Per capita income: $56,000 The producer of chocolate bars and luxury watches is one of the world’s richest economies. Its policy of long-term monetary security and political stability has helped it remain the biggest center for global offshore wealth. 8. United States of America Per capita income: $57,000 The United States is the world’s largest economy with gross domestic product (GDP) estimated at $17.914 trillion as of mid-2015. The U.S. is currently the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas. It is one of the largest trading nations in the world, as well as the world’s second-largest manufacturer. It hosts the New York Stock Exchange, the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization. 7. United Arab Emirates Per capita income: $68,000 The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) economy is the second-largest in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia, with a GDP of $570 billion in 2014. It is extremely reliant on oil, with more than 85% of its economy based on the oil exports. 6. Norway Per capita income: $68,000 Norway has the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. Much of Norway’s economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, hydroelectric power, and fisheries. With a population of more than five million 5. Kuwait Per capita income: $72,000 Kuwait has nearly 10% of the world’s oil reserves and it is the fourth-biggest producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Oil accounts for nearly half of GDP and 95% of export revenues and government income. The Kuwaiti currency is the highest-valued currency unit in the world. One Kuwaiti dinar buys US$3.28. This Persian Gulf state has a population of 3.3 million, with Kuwaitis accounting for only 30% and the rest being expatriates. 4. Brunei Per capita income: $80,000 Oil revenue accounts for more than half of the GDP of this tiny, wealthy country. Substantial income from overseas investment, as well as income from domestic production, help boost the economy. Brunei is the third-largest oil producer in Southeast Asia. It is also the fourth-largest producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world. Brunei’s population is estimated at 418,000. 3. Singapore Per capita income: $85,000 The world’s only sovereign island city-state is noted for its pragmatic and incorrupt governance, which together with its rapid development policies, is widely cited as the “Singapore model.” The nation’s highly developed trade-oriented market economy has been ranked as the most open in the world and the most pro-business with low tax rates. Singapore is also a major Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) outflow financier in the world. With a population estimated at 5.3 million, Singapore is the second-densest sovereign state in the world, after the microstate Monaco. 2. Luxembourg Per capita income: $94,000 Luxembourg, which is the second-smallest state in the European Union, enjoys a degree of economic prosperity very rare among industrialized democracies. It is seen as a diversified industrialized nation, largely depending on the banking, steel, and industrial sectors. With a population of a little more than 500,000, Luxembourg is ranked the eighth least-populous country in Europe. 1. Qatar Per capita income: $146,000 When it comes to the 2015 richest country, Qatar wins by a landslide. The oil boom was the major monetary source of this southwest Asian state, which is ranked as the world’s largest exporter of LNG. Qatari nationals account for a mere 12% of the total population of 2.2 million. Before the emergence of its petrol-based industry, Qatar was a poor pearl fishing country. Today, Qatar is a significant power in the Arab world.

West Virginia: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
 
01:58
West Virginia is a state with vast natural resources—timber, oil, gas, and, most famously, coal. Those non-renewable resources are quickly disappearing and, with them, the hope for West Virginia's future unless we create a Future Fund—a mineral trust fund—to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Since the 1880s, much of West Virginia's wealth has left the state in railcars and trucks. The local businesses that lined the main streets of Logan and Welch as late as the 1970s are gone, replaced by empty storefronts and broken dreams. More coal has been mined in McDowell County than any other county in West Virginia. Yet today, McDowell County is one of the ten poorest counties in the United States in terms of per capita income, education levels of its citizens and the quality of their health and well being. Today our state stands on the cusp of a natural gas boom as drilling has begun in the Marcellus Shale. Like coal in the last century, the gas industry is susceptible to booms and busts. This economic uncertainty can be addressed if we create a Future Fund by setting aside a portion of natural resource severance taxes. We can't go back and restore to McDowell or Logan counties a portion of the wealth that has left West Virginia. But we have the opportunity to do better for tomorrow's West Virginians by ensuring that future generations will continue to benefit from our state's natural wealth.

15 RICHEST Countries In The World (2019)!
 
14:05
The top 15 richest countries around the globe! These are the world's highest ranking nations. Which nations make most of their billions off of fish sales? What country hosts the gambling capital of the world? Find out as we look at the 15 Richest Countries In The World. #15 San Marino One of the smallest nations around the world, the Republic of San Marino only has a population of a little more than 33 and a half thousand people. The expanse of the country is small as well at just 24 square miles. But size isn’t everything, as San Marino ranks among the strongest economies today. With a GDP per capita of 50.9 thousand dollars, it’s no wonder this rich little country is the only nation in the world with more cars than there are people! #14 Austria The nation of Austria boasts a strong, well-developed social market economy that has elevated the country’s wealth among the elite. Thanks to the work of labour movements, the citizens of this European country have enjoyed moderate wages since the 1940s with more than half of the country’s salary and wage earner’s belonging to unions. Tourism also plays a major part in Austria’s economy, accounting for at least ten percent of the country’s gross domestic product, or GDP. Making a majority of its products to trade with surrounding EU countries, nearly 66% of Austrian imports and exports are made within their home continent. At a GDP per capita of 51.7 thousand dollars and a population of 8.75 million people, Austria maintains its hold with one of the most stable and successful economies worldwide. #13 Netherlands The Dutch have led Europe as one of the most consistent producers in the agricultural, fishing, shipping and trading industries since the 16th century. A population of 17 million people inhabit the Netherlands and the country churns out a GDP per capita of 52.9 thousand dollars! In addition to its seaward domination, the Dutch people have also been fortunate to have generated huge revenue from the discovery of natural gas resources in 1959. The Netherlands have an open trade economy that allows them to prosper by relying on foreign trade. Their economy is notable across the globe for its low unemployment levels, decent surplus and stable industrial relations. The Netherlands expects to have hit a budget surplus of .8 percent in 2018 and its unemployment rates are definitely below 5 percent. Numerous other factors like the countries social programs and well protected employee rights keep Dutch workers happy and the nation of the Netherlands near the top of the world’s wealthiest.

Top 10 Richest Countries in the World 2017
 
09:38
Top Ten Richest Country In The World 2017 Top 10 Richest Countries in the World 2017 10. Saudi Arabia Per capita income: $56,000 Saudi Arabia has an oil-based economy with solid government control over major economic activities. Oil represents almost all of Saudi revenue and export earnings. Saudi Arabia is the world’s leading oil exporter and second-largest producer. Out of a population of 28 million, eight million are foreign expatriates. Saudis may lose their place among the top 10 wealthiest countries soon, as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicted in October that the kingdom may run out of the financial assets needed to support spending within five years, if the oil price stays at its current weak levels. 9. Switzerland Per capita income: $56,000 The producer of chocolate bars and luxury watches is one of the world’s richest economies. Its policy of long-term monetary security and political stability has helped it remain the biggest center for global offshore wealth. 8. United States of America Per capita income: $57,000 The United States is the world’s largest economy with gross domestic product (GDP) estimated at $17.914 trillion as of mid-2015. The U.S. is currently the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas. It is one of the largest trading nations in the world, as well as the world’s second-largest manufacturer. It hosts the New York Stock Exchange, the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization. 7. United Arab Emirates Per capita income: $68,000 The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) economy is the second-largest in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia, with a GDP of $570 billion in 2014. It is extremely reliant on oil, with more than 85% of its economy based on the oil exports. 6. Norway Per capita income: $68,000 Norway has the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. Much of Norway’s economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, hydroelectric power, and fisheries. With a population of more than five million, the country has a very high standard of living, compared with other European countries, and a strongly integrated welfare system. 5. Kuwait Per capita income: $72,000 Kuwait has nearly 10% of the world’s oil reserves and it is the fourth-biggest producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Oil accounts for nearly half of GDP and 95% of export revenues and government income. The Kuwaiti currency is the highest-valued currency unit in the world. One Kuwaiti dinar buys US$3.28. This Persian Gulf state has a population of 3.3 million, with Kuwaitis accounting for only 30% and the rest being expatriates. 4. Brunei Per capita income: $80,000 Oil revenue accounts for more than half of the GDP of this tiny, wealthy country. Substantial income from overseas investment, as well as income from domestic production, help boost the economy. Brunei is the third-largest oil producer in Southeast Asia. It is also the fourth-largest producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world. Brunei’s population is estimated at 418,000. 3. Singapore Per capita income: $85,000 The world’s only sovereign island city-state is noted for its pragmatic and incorrupt governance, which together with its rapid development policies, is widely cited as the “Singapore model.” The nation’s highly developed trade-oriented market economy has been ranked as the most open in the world and the most pro-business with low tax rates. Singapore is also a major Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) outflow financier in the world. With a population estimated at 5.3 million, Singapore is the second-densest sovereign state in the world, after the microstate Monaco. 2. Luxembourg Per capita income: $94,000 Luxembourg, which is the second-smallest state in the European Union, enjoys a degree of economic prosperity very rare among industrialized democracies. It is seen as a diversified industrialized nation, largely depending on the banking, steel, and industrial sectors. With a population of a little more than 500,000, Luxembourg is ranked the eighth least-populous country in Europe. 1. Qatar Per capita income: $146,000 When it comes to the 2015 richest country, Qatar wins by a landslide. The oil boom was the major monetary source of this southwest Asian state, which is ranked as the world’s largest exporter of LNG. Petroleum and liquefied natural gas are the cornerstones of the nation’s economy and represent more than 70% of its total revenue, more than 60% of GDP. Qatari nationals account for a mere 12% of the total population of 2.2 million. Before the emergence of its petrol-based industry, Qatar was a poor pearl fishing country. Today, Qatar is a significant power in the Arab world.

Geography and Economic Growth
 
02:48
If you look at the African continent, perhaps the first word to come to mind is "enormous." And that's true. You could fit most of the United States, China, India, and a lot of Europe, into Africa. But if you compare Africa to Europe, Europe has two to three times the length of coastline that Africa has. But what does coastline length have to do with anything? Well, coasts mean access to water. As benign as water might seem, it’s a major driver of economic growth. Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, argued that access to water reduced the cost of trade, and gave merchants access to larger markets. These larger markets incentivized specialization and innovation. These twin processes ultimately spurred trade activity, and consequently, economic growth. As an end result, civilization tended to grow wherever trade was easiest. If you want proof of this, think of a few major cities. Look at Istanbul, New York, Venice, Hong Kong, London, and similar areas. What do they all have in common? They all sit near a major coast or a major river. In contrast, look at some of the poorest areas in the world—places like Kampala, or Pointe-Noire. These places are all landlocked. Since goods are easier to transport over water than over land, trade in landlocked areas is more expensive. And what happens when trade is more expensive? It becomes harder to spark economic growth. What this all means is economic growth is not only affected by a country’s rules and institutions, but by a country’s natural blessings, or natural hindrances, too. The effects of geography on growth cannot be discounted.

The mountains of Afghanistan hold as much as $1 trillion to $3 trillion in mineral resources, according to estimates by the U.S. and Afghan governments, including world-famous lapis lazuli, a deep blue, semi-precious stone that has been mined in northern Afghanistan's Badakhshan province for thousands of years. "In the current circumstances, where 50 percent of the mining revenue is going to the Taliban, and before that it was going to armed groups, by any reasonable definition lapis is a conflict mineral," said Stephen Carter, a researcher for Global Witness, a non-profit watchdog that investigates the links between natural resources, corruption and conflict..."

Freakonomics Radio - How Can Tiny Norway Afford to Buy So Many Teslas?
 
36:46
Until recently, tiny Norway (population 5 million) has been the second largest market for Teslas (after the U.S.). Earlier this year, Tesla’s Model S became the best-selling car in the country ever for a one-month period. Not bad for a luxury electric vehicle whose base price in Norway is over $100,000. What’s behind this Tesla boom? That’s the question we try to answer in this episode of Freakonomics Radio. It’s called “How Can Tiny Norway Afford to Buy So Many Teslas?” It turns out that Teslas, along with other electric vehicles, are massively subsidized by the Norwegian government. Tesla’s website advertises the generous incentives available to Norwegian buyers, including exemptions from very hefty sales taxes. What does that do to the net price of a Tesla? We asked Martin Skancke, a former high-ranking government official: MARTIN SKANCKE: The difference between the price of a Tesla and the price of a similar gasoline-driven car is huge in Norway compared to other countries. So in relative terms, the Tesla is a lot cheaper than other cars. By most measures, Norway is among the greenest countries on Earth. It gets virtually all of its electricity from hydropower; it plans to cut its greenhouse emissions by 30% by 2020; and it has more electric vehicles per capita than any country in the world. But Norway is also the biggest oil producer in Western Europe and the world’s third-largest exporter of natural gas. All that petroleum money allows Norway to subsidize its green lifestyle; it has also helped create what is now the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world, soon projected to top $1 trillion. You might think that discovering all that petroleum would be an unambiguous blessing. But Norway’s economy struggled in the beginning, thanks to an affliction known as “Dutch Disease.” (The Netherlands faced similar faced similar problems after it began exporting natural gas.) As explained by Daron Acemoglu, an MIT economist and co-author of Why Nations Fail: DARON ACEMOGLU: The economy becomes too specialized in the production and the export of the natural resources, crowding out the other sectors of the economy. Norway created its sovereign wealth fund in large part to avoid this malady, and to ensure future prosperity for its citizens. Martin Skancke was one of the civil servants tasked with creating the fund: SKANCKE: So I think it was seen primarily as a tool to stabilize the economy and to introduce sort of a buffer between the very volatile oil revenues and the non-oil economy. “Dutch Disease” is, as Acemoglu tells us, just one facet of what is more broadly known as “the natural-resource curse”: ACEMOGLU: What the abundance of natural resources does is it incentivizes lots of groups to become much more conflictual in order to take control of state institutions, be able to be become politically powerful, or blocking actors in order to be able to benefit from these natural resource rents. And the extreme form of this is the sort of civil wars that have ravaged countries like Sierra Leone and Angola where diamonds, another form of natural resource that’s perhaps even easier to mine and exploit than oil, have played a major role, or the huge political instabilities that have erupted in places like Venezuela and Nigeria around the oil economy. The fact is that Norway is the only liberal democracy among the countries that have the richest sovereign wealth funds, a list including Saudi Arabia, China, the United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait. ➤ Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/b/113356460096647194676/113356460096647194676 ➤ Subscriber: https://goo.gl/rQxE4G

Larry Geri is a faculty member at The Evergreen State College, where he teaches public policy and energy policy in the Master of Public Administration program. In "The Paradox of per capita CO2 Emissions" he explains that smaller carbon footprints don't necessarily mean lower quality of life. On April 16, 2012, speakers and attendees gathered at TEDxTheEvergreenStateCollege: Hello Climate Change to reflect on the ability -- and responsibility -- of formal and informal education to inspire and empower action in this era of climate change. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

10 Poorest Countries in the World
 
04:08
The Top 10 Poorest Countries in the World Number 10: Afghanistan Almost 50% of the population survive on less than $1.00 per day. Afghanistan has made its way to being the 10th poorest country in the world due to war and no exports being traded with this troubled country. Number 9: Madagascar The 4th largest island in the world, Madagascar, is a beautiful country with hundreds of animals/plants that are only found on the island. Tourism could be an enormous asset for the economy of Madagascar but with the constant political turmoil that industry has nose-dived. The average person survives on $1.00 per day. Number 8: Malawi Malawi depends on outside assistance to survive. The poverty level is astounding. Hundreds die every day from hunger and dehydration. People eat ants, beetles, and raw fish. 17 million people live in Malawi. Child abuse and other human rights observations have been documented. Number 7: Niger Niger is ranked last on the United Nations Human Development Index. It is a landlocked country with little access to education, poor healthcare, and extreme poverty. Niger receives over 80% of its budget in aid from foreign countries. Number 6: Central African Republic #6 on the list has huge potential to be one of richest due to having resources available such as uranium and diamonds but unfortunately it is one of the poorest. The income per capita is only $400 per year! Number 5: Eritrea A small country in the horn of Africa, Eritrea has a wide variety of natural resources at its disposal. From gold and silver to marble. Even a country so rich in resources can be poor. Its political structure and infrastructure is non-existent. Travel and movement around the country is extremely difficult without efficient roads. Number 4: Liberia Illegal poaching of endangered species, widespread disease/famine, pollution, political corruption, and many other negative actions contribute to Liberia being the 4th poorest country in the world. Number 3: Burundi Since 1970 there have been 2 mass genocides in Burundi that left millions dead. Burundi is decades behind the rest of the world in regards to communication and technology and there is little access to education. AIDS is widespread and only 2% of the population has a bank account. Coffee and tea are their main exports but not enough is produced to maintain a steady cash flow. Number 2: Zimbabwe Zimbabwe is a country with a high crime rate as well as being one of the poorest in the world. Political corruption, human rights violations, mass murders of those that oppose the government---it all makes up the cocktail that leads to its #2 position on the countdown. Number 1: The 11th largest country in the world (by area) and home to over 75 million people. Congo is also the world’s poorest country. It is a country rich in natural resources, however, there is no political stability and at least some portion of the country has been engaged in civil war since the 1960s. The healthcare system is non-existent and disease and famine wipe out an estimated 47,000 people every month. Time for the question of the day: Considering all that is just terrible and awful in parts of some of these poor poor countries, would you ever consider hitting a life savings of $200K and just moving to one of these countries and living like a king for the rest of your life?

10 – The United States - $56,116 GDP (PPP) per capita USA ranked 6th richest nation While most nations on the list have small populations (relatively), it is impressive that the world's largest economy, the United States, can maintain a per capita GDP (PPP) of $56,116, considering its population of over 310 million people. Reasons behind its success include its large domestic automotive industry, technological sector that foster innovation, and a system of democracy that protects entrepreneurial and intellectual property rights. 9 – Switzerland - $57,235 GDP (PPP) per capita Switzerland ranked 7th richest nation The GDP (PPP) per Swiss citizen is $61,086. Swiss banking and financial institutions keep this country and its economy afloat. It is important to note that some of the wealthiest people and companies in the world own Swiss bank accounts and therefore Switzerland has excess capital to use for investment purposes. Zurich and Geneva, Switzerland's most well-known cities, have consistently ranked among among the top ten worldwide in terms of standards of living. 8 – Norway - $61,197 GDP (PPP) per capita Norway ranked 4th richest nation This Nordic nation's per capita GDP of $61,197 allows its 4.97 million people to reap the benefits of a small yet robust economy. Driven by fishing, natural resources, and major petroleum exploration, Norway is the eighth largest exporter of crude oil, 9th largest exporter of refined oil, and 3rd largest exporter of natural gas in the world. 7 – Ireland - $65,144 GDP (PPP) per capita Ireland ranked 9th richest nation The Emerald Isle has a per capita income of about $65,144 with a population of about 4.8 million people. The main industries that boost its economy are textiles, mining, and food proctuon - staple products in any economy. In OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) rankings, Ireland actually places 4th overall. 6 – The United Arab Emirates - $69,971 GDP (PPP) per capita The United Arab Emirates ranked 3rd richest nation This Middle Eastern federation of emirates has a land area of about 32,278 sq. miles, which means it could easily fit within New York State (54,556 sq. miles). With a population of 9.2 million people, it's a bit more populated than the state of New Jersey. A third of the $69,971 per capita economy comes from oil revenues, while the service sector and telecommunications also contribute significantly. The UAE is the second largest economy in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia. 5 – Kuwait - $74,646 GDP (PPP) per capita Kuwait is a small, relatively open economy and its citizens enjoy a per capita GDP (PPP) of $74,646.

In recent years, Kuwait has done little to diversify its economy due to positive fiscal situation. 4 – Brunei - $78,369 GDP (PPP) per capita Brunei, a small country with a wealthy economy that is a mixture of foreign and domestic entrepreneurship, government regulation and welfare measures, and village tradition has led to GDP per capita (PPP) of $78,369. It is almost completely supported by exports. Like other oil countries in the list the government has shown progress in diversifying the economy away from just oil and gas. 3 – Singapore - $85,382 GDP (PPP) per capita Singapore ranked 5th richest nation This tiny city-state has moved up from 5th position to take 3rd with per capita income (PPP) of $85,382, which is five times the average per capita income for an ordinary individual in the world.

Switzerland Per Capita Income : $56,000.00 The producer of gourmet chocolate and luxury watches is one of the world’s richest economies. Its policy of long-term monetary security and political stability has helped it remain the biggest center for global offshore wealth. Over a year ago, Switzerland’s central bank shocked financial markets by abandoning the cap of 1.20 francs per euro that it had defended for three years to shield its economy from the pain of an overvalued currency. 9. United States of America Per capita income: $57,000.00 The United States is the world’s largest economy, with GDP estimated at $18.45 trillion as of mid-2016. (Source: “Gross Domestic Product,” Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, last accessed October 5, 2016.) The U.S. is currently one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas. It is one of the largest trading nations in the world, as well as the world’s second-largest manufacturer. It hosts the New York Stock Exchange, the world’s largest stock exchange by market capitalization. 8. Hong Kong Per capital income: $58,000.00 Hong Kong is an autonomous territory in the People’s Republic of China. It was a British Colony until 1997. The country has population of over 7.3 million and it’s one of the most densely populated states in the world. Among investors and businesses, Hong Kong is considered to be one of the most capitalist economies. 7. United Arab Emirates Per capita income: $67,000.00 The United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) economy is the second-largest in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia, with a GDP of $370.0 billion in 2015. It is extremely reliant on its oil industry, with more than 85% of its economy based on oil exports. Although the U.A.E. is the seventh richest country in the world when looking at its GDP per capita, over the past two years, the oil market has seen its fair share of volatility. This could affect the U.A.E.’s ranking in the richest countries in the world 2017 list. 6. Norway Per capita income: $68,000.00 Norway has the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. Much of Norway’s economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, hydroelectric power, and fisheries. 5. Kuwait Per capita income: $72,000.00 Kuwait has nearly 10% of the world’s oil reserves and it is the fourth-biggest producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Oil accounts for nearly half of the country’s GDP and 95% of its export revenues and government income. 4. Brunei Per capita income: $80,000.00 Oil revenue accounts for more than half of the GDP of this tiny, wealthy country. Substantial income from overseas investment, as well as income from domestic production, helps boost the economy. Brunei’s population is estimated at 418,000. 3. Singapore Per Capita Income: $85,000.00 The world’s only sovereign island city-state is noted for its pragmatic and incorrupt governance, which, together with its rapid development policies, is widely cited as the “Singapore model.” The nation’s highly developed trade-oriented market economy has been ranked as the most open in the world and the most pro-business in terms of low tax rates. Singapore is also a major foreign direct investment (FDI) outflow financier. 2. Luxembourg Per Capita Income: $94,000.00 Luxembourg, which is the second-smallest state in the European Union, enjoys a degree of economic prosperity very rare among industrialized democracies. It is seen as a diversified industrialized nation, largely depending on the banking, steel, and industrial sectors. 1. Qatar Per Capita Income: $146,000.00 When it comes to the 2017 list of richest countries, Qatar wins by a landslide. The oil boom was the major monetary source of this southwest Asian state, which is ranked as the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas. Petroleum and LNG are the cornerstones of the nation’s economy, and they represent more than 70% of Qatar’s total revenue: more than 60% of GDP.

400 Million Mouths to Feed: FOOD SECURITY IN ARAB COUNTRIES-HD
 
08:49
2014 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE ARAB FORUM FOR ENVIRONMENT & DEVELOPMENT (AFED) In their quest to enhance food self-sufficiency, Arab countries face serious challenges, including aridity, limited cultivable land, scarce water resources, population growth and serious implications of climate change. The food deficit is 54 percent in cereals, 63 percent in sugar, and 54 percent in fats and oil. Arabs import half of their basic food consumption. According to AFED report on Food Security in Arab Countries, the impoverished state of agriculture can be attributed to weak policies, insufficient investment in science and technology, frail agricultural development and lack of regional cooperation. Food and water are inextricably linked. The Arab region faces the dilemma of water scarcity, as per capita average of annual renewable water resources is 8 times less than the world average. 13 out of 22 Arab countries are classified in the severely water scarce category. At less than 100 m3 per capita, the situation in 6 countries is so alarming that AFED introduced special "exceptionally scarce" category for them. And in many areas cultivable land and water do not match. Water scarcity in the Arab region is accentuated by the utilization of about 85 per cent of the renewable surface and ground water withdrawals for agriculture, with a low irrigation efficiency and crop productivity. Average irrigation efficiency in 19 Arab countries does not exceed 46 percent. Raising irrigation efficiency to 70 percent would save about 50 billion m3 of water, enough to produce over 30 million tons of cereals, equivalent to 45 percent of cereal imports Improving the state of food security in Arab countries through domestic production, under limited cultivable land, highly stressed and dwindling water resources, is a challenging task. Nevertheless, viable options do exist. Producing more crop with less water is an option of significant importance. Crop productivity in the Arab region can be remarkably increased, as demonstrated by the work of the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA). It showed considerable increase reaching 50% in wheat yield at demonstration fields in countries such as Morocco, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, and Egypt. In addition to increasing irrigation efficiency, water productivity can be increased through the allocation of water to higher value crops, and introducing non-conventional methods. The potential of marginal water, both wastewater and brackish water, remains largely untapped for agricultural use in Arab countries. Only 48 percent of municipal wastewater is treated, with a small portion reused. With dwindling natural water resources, water reuse for irrigation in Arab countries should be encouraged and supported. Big losses in food products occur after harvesting, mainly due to: processing, transportation, and storage of the crops, as well as inefficient import supply chain logistics. It is estimated that the annual losses of grains in the Arab countries amount to about 7 million tons annually. Loss in imported wheat is over 3 million tons. Food waste can be dramatically reduced through better management of the supply chain. Arab countries have considerable livestock and fisheries resources. They are almost self-sufficient in fish, but they are heavy consumers of meat, with about 25 percent of their meat demand being met through imports, which are expected to increase in the future, driven by population and wealth. Fish is not a less important source of protein intake than meat. Consuming fish should be promoted for economic and health reasons. An awareness campaign is needed to encourage consumers to adapt their food consumption habits towards healthier patterns, and shifting towards foods of similar nutritional value but with less water requirements. Climate Change is expected to reduce water available in the Arab region by half by the end of the 21st century. Combined with higher average temperatures, this will have drastic impact on food production if no serious measures are taken. Advances made in agricultural research and technology development can put Arab countries on track towards food self-sufficiency, even with scarce natural resources. But Arab countries need to allocate more investment for agricultural research and development programs. Impact of climate change amplifies the urgency to act. After all the wars and conflicts, 400 million Arab mouths will still have to be fed. AFED report concludes that this is attainable, through increasing land productivity and irrigation efficiency, combined with regional cooperation. However, sustainability requires efficient use of resources, and the conservation of the productive bio-capacity of land and water which constitute the cornerstone for food production.
