ECONOMICS

My country Zimbabwe is a developing country. Each person makes about $950 dollars per year (GDP per ca-pita) . GDP per ca-pita is how much each person makes per year. The average is $30,000 and Zimbabwe didn't even make the half way mark. Life expectancy is 58 years and the average for a developed is 78 years. Life expectancy is how many years the average persons lives to and once again Zimbabwe didn't make it there. The literacy rate is 90% and the average for developed is 99% so they are 9% away. Literacy rate is the percent of people that can read and write in that country. So i can claim Zimbabwe is a developing country.
