Richest Country in the World 2019

The IMF (International Monetary Fund) ranks countries according to their GDP based on Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) per Capita. The Purchasing Power Parity takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of the countries to compare living standards among the different nations. Another indicator of a country’s economic output is its Gross National Income, or GNI (World Bank). Many of the highest ranking countries, like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Brunei, United Arab Emirates, have fuel and oil reserves.
