  1. Economy or GDP can’t be a criteria for to judge development of a nation. A nation is considered developed when it excels in basic needs, education, employment, health, gender equality, safety of women, religious harmony, etc. If GDP is very high but still a country is lacking in these fields it can’t be considered developed.

    1. Yes, I agree. Basically we are talking about developing nations and not developed one. If you compare the living standard and earning of a middle-class man from the past few years ago, it’s constantly uplifting, although I consider the basic amenities are also growing in India but not relatively to Population growth.

    2. So, eventually high earnings leads to high expenditure in the market that in turn will increase the flow of money in the market and which will contribute towards increasing economy of the nation.

      1. It is not necessary that high earnings will be spent and result in economy. Many people especially rich accumulate money instead of spending it. Many hoard black money. Gap between rich and poor is increasing day by day instead of decreasing.
