Where in the world is it easiest to get rich? Not the USA.

Which explains why Denmark houses ONE company in the global 500 and only 10 in the global 2000. Their GDP is similar to a single American metro like Miami or San Jose.

I don’t doubt it’s impressive though. First place 6 times in 10 years.

Just because Denmark has the highest per person GDP doesn’t mean it’s the easiest country to get rich or even reflect social mobility.

It depends upon how legal you want to be about it. Or safe.

Any place with an on-going war is an excellent place. Anyplace that specializes in illegal drugs is a good place.

Although you do have to be careful because sometimes the existing businessmen aren't good about sharing.

But it is still the best place to do business, even Forbes said so. They have a higher standard of living than the USA.

Get rich quick? It was clear that was Norway. Look at the video. The standard of living in Denmark is very high.

BTW, the largest shipping line is Danish. Maersk has been the largest container ship and supply vessel operator in the world for 23 years.

According to OECD, the average disposable income in Denmark is under $29K and average financial wealth is $73,500 while the USA disposable income average is over $44k and average financial wealth of $176K clearly demonstrates the premise of this thread is wrong...at least it's much easier to become rich in the USA than it is in Denmark....not to mention, the USA takes in more immigrants yearly than Denmark has people so even with these dragging down the average, we still average over twice as much wealth as the Danes.

OECD Better Life Index

Other countries where you'll have a good chance of becoming rich are Switzerland, Singapore, UAE, Australia, Canada....all much better than Denmark.

This guy can talk all he wants, he doesn't know what he's talking about.

At this point, China is the country that offers the most economic opportunity for someone to become wealthy.

Among Chinese national PhD students at MIT, 9 of 10 used to want to stay in the USA to seek their fortune. That was back in the 80s & 90s. Nowadays, 9 of 10 wish to return to China to seek their fortune. The USA is caught in sclerotic regulatory gridlock.

The ship has sailed on it becoming relatively easy to become rich in China. Yes, 10 years ago or maybe even 5 when you could buy real estate for 100k or 200k usd and hold onto it for 5 years and your a millionaire, but those days are mostly over. Plus, the average Chinese person has a very difficult time being rich.


You need to be in at least the middle class to start, and then buy a house or two and then you can become rich over a short period of time.


Lots of opportunities to become rich in China if your a true entreuprenuer, but that takes some financial support and a great idea. Its not that easy in China anymore, but better then say Canada or most Western European countries imo.
