  • Global Inequalities
    • Oil-exporting countries
      • These countries are quite rich
        • They have a high GNI
      • The wealth often belongs to a few people and the rest are quite poor
        • For Example - Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
    • Heavily indebted poor countries
      • These are the poorest, least developed countries in the world
        • For Example - Ethiopia, Chad and Angola
    • Newly Industrialising Countries (NIC's)
      • These countries are rapidly getting richer
        • Their economy is moving from being based on primary industry...
          • For Example - Agriculture
        • ... to secondary industry (manufacturing)
          • For example - China, India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Taiwan
            • Their economy is moving from being based on primary industry...
              • For Example - Agriculture
    • Rich industrial countries
      • These are the most developed countries in the world
        • For example - the UK, Norway, USA, Canada and France
    • Former communist countries
      • These countries aren't really poor but aren't rich either
        • They're kind of in the middle
      • They're developing quickly but not as quick as NICs are.
        • For example - the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and poland
