To find out what is the richest country, the GDR of each country per capita and the value of all final goods and services produced in a country over the last year will help us in it. That is, to determine which is the richest country in the world, it is necessary to look not only at GDP per capita. This indicator can be expressed in nominal values, i.e. regarding national currencies to the dollar at market exchange rates. But in different countries for the same amount of money, the same amount of goods and services cannot be purchased.
Therefore, there is another, a more accurate indicator of economic development, wealth, and prosperity — GDP per, capita, calculated at purchasing power parity. Of course, to fully trust this data is not necessary. Judge for yourself, relying entirely on GDP is impossible, and each country has its quality of the product, and its distribution of wealth.
