United Arab Emirates[edit]

Is this really a 'developing country'?? Last time I checked the place is more developed than some Northern and Western European countries. Some people might argue with the human rights issues but the UAE is definitely a rich and developed country. That cannot be argued. Please take a look at this map, it just proves my point.

Poor Choices; Poverty From the Ground Level by Timothy Besley January/February 2012 Foreign Affairs 99.19.44.155 (talk) 15:29, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Well, some of new EU member, former Communist countries are now developed. The article is misleading in saying that these graduated developing countries in Europe only include new Euro member. The Czech Republic does not have Euro! Btw, before the communist period, Czech lands (not the entire Czechoslovakia, but the proper Czech Republic) belonged to the most developed and industrialized areas in Europe :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.176.141.38 (talk) 17:37, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Russia and Poland[edit]

I have read and been told that Russia is MEDC and Also Poland is in the European Union so how can it be classified as an LEDC. Also two maps from the North-south divide ARTICLE suggest these countries are not LEDC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Percentage_population_living_on_less_than_$1.25_per_day_2009.svg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2011_UN_Human_Development_Report_Quartiles.svg — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.210.230.93 (talk) 20:54, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

General[edit]

Perhaps a comment that LICs and LIEs are the same would be nice: http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups#Low_income — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.182.8.56 (talk) 18:53, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Trinidad and Tobago[edit]

Please, refer to the OECD DAC, Trinidad and Tobago is not on the list of developing countries. To the contrary, it is considered a high income country.

@24.98.47.31: simply remove Trinidad and Tobago from the list if they shouldn't be included (rather than adding a note to the top of the section). Jonpatterns (talk) 18:57, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
