    What do you think?
    May be things are going so bad for UK that is not even in the chart anymore, or maybe the British talk so much about their colony in Argentina- South America so they not even consider UK part of Europe anymore..hmmmm

    The UK's per capita GDP is $34,800
    You can see the data here: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/uk.html

    Gibraltar, Guernsey, and the Island of Man are all British dependencies just like the Falklands where the per capita GDP is $35,000.

    It's funny to read comments from Argentinians about the UK's economy, funny as in tragic since the Argentine per capita GDP is highly inflated by the government much like other statistics: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/uk.html

    Not sure how the citizens of a country whose per capita GDP is a quarter of that of the United Kingdom get off at criticizing British economy.

    @riomarcos

    “The UK's per capita GDP is $34,800” and for that reason is not even among the 35 richer countries in the world idiot.

    “Gibraltar, Guernsey, and the Island of Man are all British dependencies just like the Falklands where the per capita GDP is $35,000.”

    YOU say that this nations are independents of UK all the time so don’t counts as UK par of the economy else their are counted as a colonies.

    So are you tell me the Falklands is a colony and not and independent country as you say all the time?
    Should Spain will count all GDP of Latam as their because we speak Spanish?

    You sound ridiculous.

    @britonIdiot

    I didn’t because UK and Argentina are not among the 35 richer countries in the world.
