Israel vs Iran GDP per capita

June 10, 2020

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

It really does suck to be you, Iran.

Israel GDP per capita about $US35,000.

Iran? About $US7,000. Ha ha

See this  post here:


There are various ways you can calculate this, relating to how you convert currency values, but the above chart is based on the methodology at link below (using constant 2010 US$).

It has a listing of latest values for all countries. Interestingly Australia is $US56,900 (thank you mining sector), just ahead of the US at $US54,800. West Bank and Gaza (combined) is $US 2,700 and the value for the world (ie global average) is $US10,900.

At the bottom of the list are country groupings and these are quite interesting. For example, the Arab world is a lowly $US6,500. Ha ha. All that oil and bugger all to show for it…

I came across this the other day.

I read it several times, deeply thinking about all it says and what it means.

Simply amazing.
