Why is the inequality in wealth an important measure of a country's economic development?
The greater the inequality, the faster the economy can grow due to very rich individuals
Inequality can hinder growth as the poorer members of society struggle with poverty
A society is more advanced if everyone has equal wealth

The UK
United States
China is an emerging economy - relatively low literacy rates, as well as various other unfavorable economic indicators, are countered by being a global mega power
Inflation is a measure of how much the prices of goods, services and wages rise each year. Why does high inflation show that the economy is not developed?
Only newly formed economies show high levels of inflation
High inflation shows the government does not have control of the economy

Inflation can be a huge problem if it goes out of control, devaluing the country's economy and making it unattractive to investors
