I'm first really surprised by the performance of Monaco. Almost the double of the second ?! The previous year it was even better 222 012$ for 2008. According to this newspaper 750 b$ of foreign capital are invested in this state (the second smallest in the world). The top ten are financial major places or fiscal paradises. that's just prove that the most leading country of the world base their economy on finance and not in physical good production or service. Another surprise for me was the position of China (142 !). it just prove that the development of that country is quite heterogeneous. The GNP per inhabitant of France (almost 43 000$/inhabitant) is quite surprising. I'm just wondering where the money goes...And not surprising at all, Africa is still poor. Norway is up here thanks to finance and petroleum, no more no less.
