At that time, the brazilian media used the colombian capital as an example of mismanagement in the public safety - it was not uncommon to us to read some headlines such as: "Will São Paulo be the next Bogotá?" or something similar, while today we seldom (if at all) read bad things coming from there in the press. On the contrary: last time when Colombia turned on the headlines in the brazilian press, it was because Colombia joined the OECD.


People from USA, Europe and Japan can have bad impressions of Colombia, but for latin american standards, Colombia is doing pretty well.

Poland. Homogenous white Christian cultures have traditionally been the most economically successful (see European nations, US, before immigration shift; Russia).

Unfortunately, overly arbitrary collection occasionally. Without any trace of official facts. In the poll, I am voting Indonesia, China, South Korea, Poland, UAE, Vietnam. Versatile representation to include such vast opposing national realities, yet not complete. On surrounding article, there is official display of rich journalism. Presenting 2008-2017 Average % GDP Change Improving Nauru 16%, Ethiopia 9.8%, Turkmenistan 9.5%, Qatar 8.2%, China 8.2%, Uzbekistan 8%, Laos 7.6%, Rwanda 7.4%, Timor-Leste 7.3%, India 7%, Ghana 7%, Bhutan 6.7%, Panama 6.6%, Tanzania 6.5%, Tajikistan 6.5%, Myanmar 6.4%, Mongolia 6.4%, Mozambique 6.3%, Afghanistan 6.3%, Bangladesh 6.3%, Cambodia 6.2%, DR Congo 6%, Vietnam 6%, Zambia 5.9%, Uganda 5.9%: https://www.gfmag.com/global-data/ec...dp-growth-2017 All about relatives. At another theme of conceptual angle. Only China, Qatar, Panama, Vietnam really hold any power. Even when Italy is experiencing negative dwindling of available supplies with -0.6% backwards since earlier glory, that national union is continuing superior compared to the vast majority of other ones.

South Korea is now a developed country, on similar level as Italy and Spain.

Those developing EU or future EU countries will become developed eventually if EU's economy performs well.

Among those large developing countries, China is predicted to reach developed countries' level the fastest. It is starting to become a country of more expensive labor, and factories may have to move to cheaper countries to save costs.

I think its a leftover from the 80's-90's. Nevertheless, Colombia has done wonders to improve its image.

China is not an open-air Gulag as you describe it. It bears a great deal of personal liberty as long as you don't cause a deal. Enforcement is not strong in China, you know. Unless you want to overthrow the governing party in China, you're basically free to do and say how you please, no police firing squadron will decent onto you. And that's most Chinese to you. Majority of the people don't want to overthrow the current government but to peacefully develop their economic wellbeing.
China is a oppressive, human rights abusing, and corrupt military dictatorship. People long for certain things regardless of ethnicity and they are universal...……...prosperity, health, peace and yes, freedom. The Chinese people will get tired of living in a pretty jail cell and revolt. Many already have voted with their feet to the free and prosperous West and those that can`t vote with their feet will eventually do so with their strength of character.

China is a state-run economy and when the state falls, so will the economy.

China and Eastern Europe (also Israel though it's fully developed):

The days of the West and Russia are numbered...especially given the last nato summit when Trump emerged again as a clown.

I'm expecting for some statistics here

Philippines:
- 6 to 7% average GDP growth for the past 6 years, this is big for a country with $400B economy.
- 76 quarters of uninterrupted GDP growth
- starting 2018, the government will spend more than 5% of GDP in infrastructure
- in the next couple of years, the country will transform from unitary to federal system
- for the first time in history, it achieved double digit foreign direct investments in 2017.
- the current government passed the Freedom of Information in the executive branch.
- the country has a huge workforce of around 65M.
- average population age is about 22.
