Qatar is the RICHEST country but is it FAIR?
Qatar is the richest country in the world with a per capita income of approximately $125,000. But much like other countries, a wealth gap has inevitably led to a potentially irreversible Qatar poverty rate, so long as this disproportionate distribution of wealth continues to occur.
Qatar serves as another reminder that the production of wealth does not automatically equate to a fairer society where everyone can benefit from the country’s wealth. This is important to observe since as long as emerging economies such as Pakistan and Turkey focus on the creation of wealth, rather than the distribution of wealth, they will inevitably face the same problems.
