Many developed countries, being relatively less populous than their developing counterparts, have high levels of GDP, while the GDPs of less-developed countries, especially in Africa, are disproportionally low.According to the UN DESA baseline scenario, by 2100 Africa will become the world's most populous regions, accounting for 40...
