The World Development Data Index (WDI) shows that most, if not all; the countries sampled had a steady, gradual and continuous growth of their per capita income. The same also applies to those countries such as Japan which recorded a decline in their per capita income. The gradual growth of per capita income is an indication of a gradual accumulation of capital. As the labor output and input in these countries increases, their income and savings increase too as the fraction of their income they save increases.
