G20 members, GDP and inequality, 1980-2016

Sources: World Bank , ; World Inequality Database,


Through the development of economic indicators since 1980, the graphs show the heterogeneity of “emerging” countries. Their changes in GDP are highly variable, with China showing the strongest growth. When their GDP is calculated per capita, all the emerging countries have extremely low figures (especially India and Indonesia, but China too), with the exception of South Korea and Saudi Arabia. Internal income inequalities are high, often more so than in the early industrialized countries.
