USA: A NEW THIRD WORLD NATION IN THE MAKING!

With all due respect to the reports published by United Nations and other similar global bodies, there are certain anomalies that nobody points out, at least publicly. These anomalies have been going on for years, if not decades, falling in line with Western interests. Even if we track global history in the post-World War II period, these irregularities are vivid and clear. For example, Japan was for long considered an emerging economy, rather than a fully developed one, despite its per capita income being higher than the many so-called developed nations. The same pattern still persists with other nations, like South Korea, which is even now considered an emerging country, although its per capita income (in PPP terms) is higher than Spain’s and at par with Italy’s (both Spain and Italy are recognized as developed nations). The G-7 club was formed on the basis of the seven biggest economies among developed nations coming together. Now, with South Korea’s GDP size in PPP terms becoming bigger than Italy’s and its per capita income almost at par with Italy’s, it is incomprehensible why Italy is a G-7 member and South Korea is not! Again, Qatar has one of the highest per capita incomes (PPP) in the world, yet is not recognized as a developed nation.

Such reports are not only politically designed in order to keep emerging nations (and investors) at bay but to maintain the status quo. It becomes so much easier to deceive people based on these reports and then send American mercenaries to the so-deemed Third World countries to “protect” their people. These contentious listings also allow First World nations to have an upper hand in all decisions made at global forums and to dictate terms of trade and taxes.

Such inconsistencies in rankings also symbolize the general racial and geographic discrimination prevalent in certain geopolitical groups. Global bodies like United Nations don’t exist in isolation, but are run and controlled by Western powers. Hence, it is only natural that their functioning would also be underpinned by the same pattern of regionalism based on race and community. One of the blatant displays of such inconsistency is the Human Development Index (HDI), showing an upward looking graph of American living standards, despite the ‘Great Recession’ pervading the nation since 2008. Despite the fact that the US economy registered negative growth in the year 2009 and 2011, the HDI report still showed a rising standard of living in America! While it is not impossible for such a thing to happen, it is indeed very unlikely. It in fact goes against basic economic principles, leading to suspicion on the authenticity of the report. According to a poll by Gallup, the percentage of employees who felt that their standard of living is improving had been as low as 40 per cent in 2008. As per the same survey, the overall proportion of population in United States that felt that the economic condition in the country was improving was at an abysmal 19 per cent in the first quarter of 2009. Yet, the UN report reveals that standard of living has been continually rising in United States, even amidst the worst times of the recession that saw public protests like the Occupy Wall Street campaign!
