I'm not the one who created this thread . If people are wondering why the southern cone is the most prosperous region in Latin America is because for the (non -latino American) person is very obvious the difference that exist between southern cone region and the rest of Latin America. Racially is whiter , (why don't you ask that swidish guy about it again). sociopolitically and economically over all (as a region) is still more stable , ( (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay ) still have higher HDI, gdp per capita ..(those tiny central Americans countries are tax free heavens ). , The Southern cone has better quality of life, is more tolerant towrads lgtb , better gender equality . (Those are the facts )!!!. Whatever sources you go to you'll find the same thing . Just look it up . Google (southern cone ) and you'll see the same characteristic written in all sources . Facts facts

If youre calling me desperate , then you also have to call desperate to all those official sources that talks about the (southern cone ). Jelous much ?

Why is there such a strong correlation between geographic distance from the equator and prosperity? (Quora)

there's no typical Colombian or Venezuelan. For a start, both countries are countries of regions, with several different Native linguistic groups (Quechua, Chibcha, Carib, Arawak, Tucano etc). Chibcha languages predominate in Colombia, Carib languages predominate in Venezuela. Depending on the region, people look very different, you can have Mestizos, Mulattoes, Blacks, Natives, Syrian Lebanese people etc.

not really. As it was said countless times all over this thread, countries like Mexico, Costa Rica or Panama have better quality of life than Argentina (lower poverty rates, lower unemployment etc etc). These are not tiny countries, but very large countries, in the case of Mexico, and, in the case of CR and Panama, both are more populated than Uruguay.

Southern Cone on average isn't more "stable" than the rest of LatAm, it's actually much less stable (much more episodes of economic recession, instability, dictatorships etc) and also their economies grouped together grow less than the rest of LatAm (especially because of Argentina).

it doesn't have higher GDP per capita, as we showed you many times all over the thread. Panama has a higher GDP per capita than all of them, and Mexico and Costa Rica have higher GDP per capita than Argentina. The DR (not a tiny country but a 10 million people one) will overtake Argentina very soon, and other countries are not far.

Southern Cone isn't more tolerant towards lgbt. Colombia, Brazil and several Mexican states legalized lgbt adoption and same sex marriage, Chile hasn't, which makes the later country more backwards for lgbt population. Both Chile and Uruguay scored worse than Costa Rica, Cuba, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Mexico and Peru in the latest edition (2018) of the Globlal Gender Gap Report ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Gender_Gap_Report ), which "ranks countries according to calculated gender gap between women and men in four key areas: health, education, economy and politics to gauge the state of gender equality in a country".

in order to be consistent, this theory correlating geographic distance from the equator and prosperity should be true for large periods of the human history, but it's not. During like 90 or 95% of the history of humanity, the wealthiest and more "advanced" areas of the World lied close to the equator: Incas, Mayas, Aztecs in the Americans; Egytians; all of the Middle Eastern civilizations; India; South and Central China; etc etc. In Europe, the most "civilized" areas were the Roman Empire, Greece etc; in the meantime, Northern Europe was considered barbaric and backwards.

I will quote some of the paragraphs in the Forbes article:

Quote:
79% of the world's population lives in countries closer to the equator than Japan, but only 31% of the world's GDP is located there. In other words, the world's most antipodal 21% of the population produces 69% of the world's GDP.
but most that 79% corresponds to Asian countries, especially, South Asian countries.

so, instead of wealth being concentrated far from the Equator, you have poor areas as South Asia, and wealthier areas, like western Europe. European countries became wealthier for different reasons other than distance to the equator, geopolitical and historical reasons related to the rise and development of capitalism. Today, Eastern European countries such as Poland, Czechia, Slovenia or Estonia have become much wealthier because of their geographical and, especially, political proximity to Western Europe

Quote:
Antipodal latitude is... A reasonable predictor in South/Central Asia and Central/South America, with the exception of Venezuela, and a good predictor of prosperity in East Asia, with the notable exceptions of Singapore and North Korea.
this is just not true. There are many Central Asian countries which are very poor (Nepal, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, etc) and other countries which are much nearer to the equator than these, but are also much wealthier (Oman, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore). Taiwan is wealthier than North Korea or Mongolia. Siberia is fairly poor.

it's not true for North America. Canada and USA are the wealthiest, for political, historical, cultural reasons, but Mexico is not wealthier than Panama or Trinidad and Tobago, and Cuba isn't wealthier than Grenada or whatever.

in South America, Bolivia and Paraguay aren't wealthier than Colombia, Suriname or Ecuador. Argentina is barely wealthier.

A few of my neighbors are from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Except for the fact that they speak Spanish, they are racially indistinguishable from non-Hispanic white Americans.

A lot of people who make up the upper-classes in Mexico appear whiter than the average Mexican.

Just saying.

(Uh uh uh ), no no no. We're not talking about (ancient ) times Harry!!!. We're talking about post European colonialism, were talking about the modern time . You ever heard of the term (age of discovery or exploration)??..... North America, scandinavia, Siberia, australasia , southern Africa and south america were still non discovered territories inhabited only by aboriginals , natives and africans

2) (Forbes) published that article based on the "theory" and observation everybody heard of , the (EQUATORIAL PARADOX) Which is simply a pure racial correlation. (The won't say that or Maybe they didnt realized ). But the equator itself (has nothing) to do with wether a country is richer or not because of the colder climate , the only reason why (cold temperate ) countries have been richer is beacuseb they received massive European migration (cold regions are more suitable for Euros) . And as I said before cold temperate regions of the earth are located around near the artic and antartica . Southern cone, south Africa, australasia , Europe , North America

3) Forbes would love to hear from you

The average person from the Southernmost part of south America ( Argentina, Uruguay , Southern Brazil , Paraguay and Chile). (not everyone) pass as white in the USA regardles of the etchic or language group . If you're Caucasian youre Caucasian anywhere .
