The Republic of Congo possesses the lowest GDP per capita in the world- therefore making it the poorest country in the world (Kaswala). According to the ‘Borgen Project’- Congo’s GDP per capita in 2012 was a mere $370 comparing to the richest country at the time (Quatar) with a GDP per capita of $100,000 (Kaswala). Now in 2015, Congo’s GDP has increased, but only by little. It now has a GDP per capita of $435 (Finance).
Economy Laos lost nine-tenths of their currency's value against the US dollar in 1997 during the Asian currency crisis. A report from the Asian Development Bank states that even if absolute poverty incidence has halved, the distribution of private household expenditures has become more unequal in Laos. Because a large portion of the Lao population don't have the required education, skills, and experience for jobs outside the agriculture sector, foreign businesses who invest in the country usually bring their own foreign staff with them. This creates a deeper unemployment problem. Healthcare Approximately 44% of children suffer from stunted growth and 27% are severely underweight.

The great depression had affect Canada socially, as population changes occurred, as less immigrants go to canada, and birth rate changes, as well as death rates. Throughout the 1930s, Canada’s population growth reached their lowest point since the 1880s. Canada’s birth rate dropped from 13.1 live births per 1000 people in 1930 to only 9.7 per 1000 people in 1937. The lowest ratio until the 1960s. This affected the nation significantly, as the population decreases, not much children would grow up to work for the nation, thus creating less income and therefore not increasing the nation’s GDP as much as it can.
The cost of Zimbabwe’s involvement used a big portion of the government expenditure. As the country recovered from the war, the government was unable to make changes that aided the budget deficit (Munangagwa 114). In Zimbabwe, over sixty percent of its sixteen million population lives below the national poverty line. The people who are living in low income households are unable to obtain sufficient basic needs like food, clothing, education, and access to social services (Chinake 40).

Longevity Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with surprising inequalities between the rich and the poor. Sixty per cent of all Zambians live below the poverty line. Significant deterioration in the quality of life has occurred simultaneously with reported economic growth of 4.3 per cent in 2015. The social divisions between the rich and the poor are so sharp that it is hard to recognise them as being in the same country. Indicators such as maternal mortality, infant mortality, under-five mortality, and crude death rate have worsened or remained stationary.
This, coupled with GOZ-sanctioned farm invasions, that grossly reduced production, has caused domestic production of the food staple maize to fall drastically over the past decade. Zimbabwe has a broad-based economy with three major productive sectors namely agriculture, mining and manufacturing (World Bank, 1999). Although accounting for only 18% of Zimbabwe’s gross domestic product (in 1996), the agricultural sector remains the backbone of the economy and society (World Bank, 1998). It provided income and employment for 75% of the population accounting for some 45% of the country’s merchandise exports and being the focus of a large share of the country's domestic trade and transport
