Stage of antiquity never relevant past false ideologies with Developing/Undeveloped/Various First/Second/Third Group Planet, etcetera. Going smooth chronological order from left to right. First one in collection of nations isn’t ever belonging. Spiraling dysfunctional chaos that just isn’t delivering competent service between other people in daily lifestyle. Quintessential recent modern Greece synopsis. Succeeding unique within borders reality is kind of like rustic Iberian counterpart while the next door neighbor is wild royal maintaining luxuries, sophistication even extra high up (Portugal entering Spain). Finally, Italy is winning just by a few molecules, yet extremely close competition between Spain, and Italy. Only those are legitimate into category. Although, exhibiting common vast major disparities comparing various regions. Portugal is in the middle compromise of those relatives.

I read several bs in this thread. I live in Greece, studied in the US, and travelled in Scandinavia recently. I live in a house with dionysus marbles (most americans and scandinavians that think they are 1st world countries compared to Greece) can't even imagine or afford houses with that wealth. Millions in the US live in containers and mobile houses, are you joking me? No one in Greece would allow himself to live in such conditions, please wake up..

You're right!

However, in my experience, typically in Greece one acquires property passed down over generations, begin building their homes as their finances allow, even if it takes a few years and sometimes...money from America.

One word...earthquakes.

List of earthquakes in Greece

Tectonic setting

Greece is located at the complex boundary zone in the eastern Mediterranean between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate.

This one in particular was very bad.

1953 Ionian earthquake

The 1953 Ionian earthquake (also known as the Great Kefalonia earthquake) struck the southern Ionian Islands in Greece on August 12. In mid-August there were over 113 recorded earthquakes in the region between Kefalonia and Zakynthos, and the most destructive was the August 12 earthquake. The event measured 7.2 on the surface wave magnitude scale, and it raised up the whole island of Kefalonia by 60 cm (24 in), and caused widespread damage throughout the islands of Kefalonia and Zakynthos.

Well... add Poland:
By September 2018, Poland will no longer be ranked by FTSE Russell as an Emerging Market (FTSE Emerging All Cap), but as a Developed Market (FTSE Developed All Cap Ex-US). This will place the country together with 24 other nations including Germany, France, Japan and Australia. Poland is the first Central and Eastern European economy to be upgraded to Developed Market status.
https://emerging-europe.com/news/pol...market-status/

FTSE Russell has announced the upgrade of Poland from Emerging Market to Developed Market status on 29 September 2017. Poland became the world's 26th Developed Market, according to FTSE Russell. It's the first former Eastern Bloc country to achieve this status.

This question is one of a batch with slight variation revolving around the same concept "Do you consider Greece, Portugal, Italy and Spain_______________ ?" insert Third world, first world, White, Brown, European, African, poor, developed, underdeveloped, intolerant, racist, backward. Forgive me for those adjective I couldn't think of as I am writing this post. If you are ever looking for an example of a loaded question, this thread's original post meets all the requirements of one.
