An animated comparison of the richest country in the world. All 188 countries ranked according to their National Wealth - how rich are they, and if all their money were to convert to gold, how big will the amount of gold they have relative to the size of a human. Also featuring World's richest person Jeff Bezos who is richer than over 100 countries, and Apple, the richest company, which market capitalization is richer than over 150 countries! Source: Credit Suisse (Global Wealth Data Book 2017) Note: 1) Figures listed refers to National Wealth and NOT GDP!!! National Wealth refers to the cumulative sum of every adult marketable value of financial assets plus non-financial assets (principally housing and land) less debts. 2) All 195 United Nation countries included except for Cape Verde, Nauru, Palestine, St Kitts and Nevis, South Sudan, Tuvalu and Vatican City due to lack of available data. 3) Solid Gold Cube refers to a theoretical 1m by 1m by 1m 100% Gold Cube purchased at the current market price. It does not represent Gold Reserves but rather how much gold can be bought if all national wealth/financial assets were converted into gold.

What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning & explanation
 
06:24
What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning - RESOURCE CURSE definition - RESOURCE CURSE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources, specifically non-renewable resources like minerals and fuels, tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources. This is hypothesized to happen for many different reasons, and there are many academic debates about when and why it occurs. Most experts believe the resource curse is not universal or inevitable, but affects certain types of countries or regions under certain conditions. The idea that resources might be more of an economic curse than a blessing began to emerge in debates in the 1950s and 1960s about the economic problems of low and middle-income countries. The term resource curse was first used by Richard Auty in 1993 to describe how countries rich in mineral resources were unable to use that wealth to boost their economies and how, counter-intuitively, these countries had lower economic growth than countries without an abundance of natural resources. An influential study by Jeffrey Sachs and Andrew Warner found a strong correlation between natural resource abundance and poor economic growth. Hundreds of studies have now evaluated the effects of resource wealth on a wide range of economic outcomes, and offered many explanations for how, why, and when a resource curse is likely to occur. While "the lottery analogy has value but also has shortcomings", many observers have likened the resource curse to the difficulties that befall lottery winners who struggle to manage the complex side-effects of newfound wealth. The IMF classifies 51 countries as “resource-rich.” These are countries which derive at least 20% of exports or 20% of fiscal revenue from nonrenewable natural resources. 29 of these countries are low- and lower-middle-income. Common characteristics of these 29 countries include (i) extreme dependence on resource wealth for fiscal revenues, export sales, or both; (ii) low saving rates; (iii) poor growth performance; and (iv) highly volatile resource revenues. A 2016 meta-study finds weak support for the thesis that resource richness adversely affects long-term economic growth. The authors note that "approximately 40% of empirical papers finding a negative effect, 40% finding no effect, and 20% finding a positive effect" but "overall support for the resource curse hypothesis is weak when potential publication bias and method heterogeneity are taken into account." Natural resources are a source of economic rent which can generate large revenues for those controlling them even in the absence of political stability and wider economic growth. Their existence is a potential source of conflict between factions fighting for a share of the revenue, which may take the form of armed separatist conflicts in regions where the resources are produced or internal conflict between different government ministries or departments for access to budgetary allocations. This tends to erode governments' abilities to function effectively. Even when politically stable, countries whose economies are dominated by resource extraction industries tend to be less democratic and more corrupt. According to one academic study, a country that is otherwise typical but has primary commodity exports around 5% of GDP has a 6% risk of conflict, but when exports are 25% of GDP the chance of conflict rises to 33%. "Ethno-political groups are more likely to resort to rebellion rather than using nonviolent means or becoming terrorists when representing regions rich in oil." There are several factors behind the relationship between natural resources and armed conflicts. Resource wealth may increase the vulnerability of countries to conflicts by undermining the quality of governance and economic performance (the "resource curse" argument). Secondly, conflicts can occur over the control and exploitation of resources and the allocation of their revenues (the "resource war" argument). Thirdly, access to resource revenues by belligerents can prolong conflicts (the "conflict resource" argument).

Fragile States, Better Security and Management of Natural Resources | Paul Collier | TEDxOxford
 
19:23
While people in many developing countries are beginning to reduce gap with the West, people in fragile states are not. One reason is a lack of security. In countries like Mali and the CAR, only last-minute French intervention stabilised extremely dangerous situations, while the US Rapid Reaction Force sat in Stuttgart. We must end flip-flops of policy over intervention. Europe should take a long-term and consistent approach to building African capacity to intervene before security crises get out of hand. Natural resource extraction often fails to benefit the country with the resources. Resource extraction companies should be seen as custodians (much like banks). Key steps needed are: more transparency, on which there is some progress; more effective taxation, requiring better international rules and provision of qualified staff; and stronger action on corruption through making it harder to hide payments – including an international standard on public disclosure of beneficial ownership.

Why Isn't Congo as Rich as Saudi Arabia? Massive Tax Evasion
 
04:38
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is rich in natural resources, yet the average citizen lives on only 72 cents a day. The foreign mining companies are getting rich while the general population is living in poverty. Many Congolese citizens are diging through the dirt on their hands and knees in search their fair share of the countries natural minerals. While there are taxes on the mining companies who benefit from the countries resources it is proving difficult to actually collect the money that is owed. Vocativ spoke to one tax inspector who explained that tax evasion and government fraud is rampant throughout the mining industry. So it seems that until those benefiting from the countries natural wealth start paying their fare share, many average citizens will have to continue digging through the mud to get by.

Roundtable:  Are natural resources a blessing or a curse?
 
26:13
Sitting on a gold mine - but why do some countries rich in precious metals, stones or oil struggle to reap the benefits? An abundance of natural resources can bring great prosperity, but it can also have the opposite effect – weaker economies and democracies - and less development. It’s the paradox of plenty, also known as the ‘resource curse’. At the Roundtable was Leif Wenar, author of ‘Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules that Run the World’; Guy Michaels, associate professor of Economics at London School of Economics; and Chiara Ravetti, researcher in Resource rich economies at the University of Oxford. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.

Trillion Dollars Natural Resources and Geographical Importance of Gold and Oil Reserves
 
11:03
Natural Resources like Oil, Gas, Gold and Precious stones in a country's economy plays very important role to boost the economy and export these goods to earn money. If we look at the natural resources reserves in Pakistan there is an estimate of five Trillion Dollars of natural resources reserves in a single province but unfortunately there is not a single business minded leader in Pakistan who utilize these resources and boost the economy.

The Policy Space in a Natural Resource Rich, Post-Conflict Country
 
29:36
Herbert M'cleod (Special Advisor, Office of the President, Sierra Leone) spoke about how post-conflict countries should seek to allow for changes to policy based on evidence rather than to recreate the government and economy that led to the conflict. In practice, however, the post-conflict environment is complex, mired in the need for short-term solutions and the rush to return to a sense of "normalcy".

AND WHILE THESE THINGS ARE INDEED A PART OF BRAZIL, A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS FASCINATING COUNTRY REVEALS A MULTITUDE OF UNEXPECTED FACETS. GERMAN VILLAGE THIS IS AFTER ALL A COUNTRY SO LARGE THAT WHILE IT'S WINTER AT ONE END, IT'S SUMMER AT THE OTHER. BRAZIL ACCOUNTS FOR HALF OF SOUTH AMERICA IN BOTH LAND SIZE AND POPULATION, OR MAP AND WITH 70% OF ITS PEOPLE UNDER THIRTY, IT IS A COUNTRY YOUNG IN AGE AND SPIRIT. DESPITE THE CURRENT ECONOMIC PROBLEMS BRAZIL IS ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.......... IN TERMS OF NATURAL RESOURCES. IT HAS THE MOST CONCENTRATED ECONOMIC AND INDUSTRIAL BASE IN LATIN AMERICA, AND IT RANKS EIGHTH IN THE WORLD IN GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT. BRAZIL IS A NEIGHBOR TO EVERY OTHER COUNTRY ON THE CONTINENT EXCEPT ECUADOR AND CHILE. THEN DIVIDES INTO REGIONS AND IT'S 3 MILLION SQUARE MILES ARE MADE UP OF FIVE DISTINCT GEOGRAPHICAL REGIONS: REGION AT A TIME HIGHLIGHTED. THE NORTHERN REGION HOLDS THE VAST MAP DISSOLVE TO PRIMORDIAL FORESTS OF THE AMAZON BASIN -- TREE FROM H20? A WORLD UNTO ITSELF, A GIANT WATERSHED WHICH FEEDS THE AMAZON, THE LARGEST RIVER IN THE WORLD. THE NORTHEASTERN REGION IS THE GOLDEN COAST, A LAND OF ENDLESS TROPICAL BEACHES, THE CRADLE OF BRAZILIAN CIVILIZATION, A PLACE WHERE AFRICAN, PORTUGUESE, AND DUTCH CULTURES HAVE MERGED TO FORM A WAY OF 2 CHURCH SHOT LIFE THAT IS BOTH UNIQUE AND TYPICALLY BRAZILIAN. PORT SCENE THE WEST CENTRAL REGION IS AN ALMOST UNTOUCHED LAND OF VAST MARSHES TEEMING WITH NATIVE WILDLIFE.............. THE PANTANAL OF THE MATO GROSSO. AND FROM OUT OF THIS STARK WILDERNESS, RISES THE SHAPE OF THE FUTURE, THE ULTRAMODERN CAPITAL OF BRAZIL........ BRAZILIA. THE SAMBA BEAT OF RIO DE JANEIRO AND THE DYNAMO PULSE OF SAO PAULO MAKE THE SOUTHEASTERN REGION THE REAL ENERGY CENTER OF THE COUNTRY. AND THE SOUTHERN REGION IS A HIGH COOL LAND OF PINE FORESTS AND PAMPAS, PERFECTLY SUITED TO RANCHING AND AGRICULTURE, WHERE THE FOLKWAYS OF EUROPE HAVE BEEN FAITHFULLY PRESERVED. AND IN THIS SOUTHERN REGION, ON THE BORDERS OF PARAGUAY, AND ARGENTINA, THE PARANAPENA AND THE IGUASSU RIVERS MEET WITH SUCH FORCE THAT THEY CREATE THE LARGEST WATERFALL ON EARTH, THE LUMINOUS IGUASSU FALLS!

In Power & Revolution 2019 Edition, play as the Head of State and extend your influence around the globe. By playing as several countries, try to change the destiny of our planet with orchestrated actions. Play as the head of the legal or illegal opposition and seize power! STRATEGY, SIMULATION AND MANAGEMENT Power & Revolution 2019, is a simulation of our current world, recreating its features in-depth and across a number of domains: economic, political, military, social, financial, environmental, energetic, transportation... All countries of the world are represented with their own features. The calculation and scenario engines include more than 100,000 data, 15,000 texts and 10 hours of recorded dialogue. A detailed and animated 3D world map helps to support the players, with all the borders, regions and important and strategic locations of the world The game combines management stages of economics, commerce, wargames, construction, espionage, simulation, and political influence and manipulation. Players can opt for the management of just one country or several simultaneously and design collaborative strategies to change the world's destiny. There are game settings across multiple domains: degree of activity of terrorist organizations, probabilities of natural disasters, reactivity of populations, outbreak of wars. More than twenty contextual scenarios with current events from today's world are integrated. Players can choose to play as a head of state or as a leader of the political opposition. THE PLANET IS BEING THREATENED! The entire world is on the brink of collapse: global warming, social unrest, rising populism, the risk of global conflict, overpopulation, cybercrime, new zones, pollution, shortages!As the leader of up to 30 nations simultaneously, attempt to implement cohesive and effective policies that will collectively guarantee a viable future for the planet. And in another new play mode, "Chaos 2030", experience the world that could exist in the near future if things break down: amid the global chaos, develop solutions to maintain your power and grow your influence... One specific scenario, "Global Warming", based on the goals of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), has the objective of limiting global warming to 1.5° Celsius for 2100, and to reduce CO2 emissions by 45% by the year 2030. As the head of the 30 largest CO2 emitters, initiate a global energetic transition by pursuing policies on infrastructures (dismantling of thermal power industries, constructing power plants with renewable energies…), finance (taxes on petroleum products, carbon tax...), the environment, innovations (CO2 capture, development of electric vehicles…)… and all while avoiding energy shortages and maintaining a balanced budget as well as social stability! #graystillplays #indie #simulation

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.

Top 10 Poorest Countries in the World 2019
 
09:20
Unfortunately, African Countries have again topped the list of Top 10 Poorest Countries in the World. Not because they do not have resources but there are many other factors which do not let them develop. Almost all countries in our list have faced serious political strifes, civil wars, military coups and ethnic violances. Corruption is spread over everywhere which has paved way for nepotism and the as a result provoke armed conflicts. Some of these countries have suffered a lot because of unlimited cases of HIV and ebola among others, Diseases in these countries have killed millions and unavailibility of health facilities have made things worse. The populations of these countries are mostly dependent on agriculture and live stock for their earnings but droughts and unavailability of water in some places has harmed agriculture much. Manufactoring and industry is in beginner stage or not available and it makes most of these countries depend on foreign aid. The common good thing about these countries is that most of these countries have extensive natural resources like oil, gold, copper, diamonds and other precious metals but unfortunately, due to wars, militias and terrorist groups are vast spread and even after the availability of these resources people live under the poverty line. The governments and people of these countries need to work hard to get benefit from this natural gift and leaders and governments should show some sympathy to its people and stop the corruption. If these resources are used for the benefit of these people and human development, there is no doubt these countries will rise above all. As humans, we all have a duty to our brothers and sisters in these countries to help them in anyway possible. and big belly multinational companies should stop exploiting these countries and their resources.
