___ National Economic Accounts for Countries and Regions around the World

Compared National Income Accounting in relation to the standards of living across countries.

Comparison of the Gross National Income (GNI) of countries based on Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) per
capita in international Dollars.

List of countries and regions of the world by their GNI at purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita for one year (2005), in ascending order starting with the countries with the lowest GNI.
For example, the comparable average income of a citizen of Malawi is 596 Dollar yearly, the average income of a citizen of Argentina is 13,153 Dollar in a year, and a citizen of the United States has an average income of
41,557 Dollar yearly.

To make it more clear a resident of Thailand has an income of $3,760 that is ten times more than that of
a resident in Afghanistan who has a yearly income of $310, but the Thai's income is more than ten time less than the income of a resident of Spain with a yearly average income of $32,120. This are real figures - not fictional (Data World Bank 2007)


Definition:
The Gross National Income (GNI) comprises the total value of currently produced final goods and services produced by the domestic economy of a country, measured within a given period of time, usually a year. (a close value is Gross National Product (GNP).


Purchasing Power Parity
is a method of measuring the relative purchasing power of different countries currencies over the same types of goods and services, despite differential rates of inflation. PPP allows to make more accurate comparisons of standards of living across countries, because goods and services may cost more in one country than in another.


The International Dollar
is a hypothetical unit of currency that has the same purchasing power that the U.S. dollar has in the United States at a given point in time.

Actually, there are more than five colors,

Baron de Coubertin would have loved to use them all.

Why is it, that Gay and Lesbian people still are victims of persecution, harassment, and assaults occasioning actual bodily harm or worse?
Our world would be much poorer and colder without the creativity and ingenuity of the colorful LGBT* culture.
So, get up, stand up, and don't let it happen again and again and again.

Nature made sure, that all men are able to love each other without distinction of gender. This ability empowers humans to care for and to help each other. Natures gift simply secures the survival of the species.
But in some societies this natural law has been neglected by religions, governments and other interest groups in favour for better controllable straight-laced communities.

But if you know what life is worth, You will look for yours on earth
(lyrics from the song Get Up, Stand Up)
Bob Marley



* LGBT - acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
