This PIB per capita you used as reference is PPA... not the real PIB nominal what change with currency flotation...

You're behind the times. China no longer has the poverty it did 20 years ago.
Argentina is in the dumps now, there's a lot of people without food, robberies on the street have been increasing a lot.

it seems World Bank uses GNI nominal. Countries above 12.000 GNI per capita (current USD) qualify as high income:

Argentina GNI per capita nominal must be around 9000 USD.

Is funny how people here go to great lengths to disqualify small black islands as "tax heavens" but have no issue with Ireland, or Switzerland being tax heavens also. Trinidad is not a tax heaven and is not that small ether, with a population of 1.4 millions is not some key in the middle of the sea, Trinidad's economy is based on Oil products, not financial services.
with an income of $32,684 is one of the highest in the region if not the highest.

on a side note DR is expected to grow more than 5% this year and Argentinas economy will contract -2%.
DR will surpass Argentina GDP this Summer or the by end of the year.

Both Panama and DR, plus almost all of the English speaking Caribbean stand against the eurocentric notion that the southern cone is somewhat the most prosperous.
you can claim that Panama and the islands are just "tax heavens" ...SO what? they found their niche in the world economy and are using it.

Antonio is correct, for example Dominicans have about the same amount of African blood than Chileans have native american, but Chileans look white and Dominicans look black.

black is a dominant gene.

very true i said that at the beginning of the conversation MEXICO is the most prosperous country in latam, might not have the highest income, but it is the one that have brought more prosperity to the largest number of people.

the point is that the Southern Cone is not the wealthiest area in LatAm, nor the most prosperous, developed or anything, as it was already proved in this whole thread.
