Why is QATAR the RICHEST Country on EARTH? - VisualPolitik EN

  • Published on Sep 25, 2017
  • The government of Qatar has investments and properties all around the world. It is the birthplace of Al Jazeera, the most important Arabic media company and then there is Doha, the capital, which is a sea of skyscrapers, malls and luxurious cars.
    Today we'll be talking about Qatar!

    Lol so funny how he can donate money and land for a Church but won't tolerate a little bit of short skirts... I don't get this?! Also French won't tolerate a little bit of cloth on the hair anf force women to take it off by law. What the hell is wrong with this world? America is really free and in America you can be whatever you want.

    One more thing that you may not know. Saudi Arabia is burning its Natural Gas since years ( over 40 years or so KSA burning the gas ) just because KSA wants Qatar to be the only country in GCC who offers the Gas and make its profitable. Now KSA decided to make the gas in the production line and no more burning. and Saudi Arabia Aramco already mentioned than next year KSA will be the biggest natural gas provider in world. you can tell Qatar game will be fucked up. Its a matter of time now.

    I watch your videos on pretty regular basis. I found out you lacked in a broader view. You are more interested in economics and international relationship. It will be better if you focus on the newer prospects of your subjects as well. The education systems they introduced, their research & development initiatives are note worthy. Most importantly they are thinking of their future when all the natural resources will run short. The cultivation process in desert is something like a big fantasy. We live in a world where democracy,socialism,... these are mere words. England&Japan are democratic countries having Queen and Emperor respectively,what a contradiction!!! But its always easy to tag the middle eastern countries with monarch and countries unbowed to west with autocrats. We live in a world where resources decide who will rise high and who will fall not laws or principles.

    Have you been to Qatar? Hardly seems like a rich country. Some rich people and a lot of poor immigrants doing the hard grind. I wasn't impressed with the city etc. The reality is the majority of the population are actually poor with some actually be almost classed as slaves. Do some research or actually visit the country next time.

    UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, etc will be empty concrete jungles and poor desert.
    Same with Saudi Arabia, Mecca will be empty as many blinded muslims around the world including majority from Indonesia will realise, will be enlightened that they were cheated by them already for centuries.

    Love your channel, but as a pronunciation martinet I must point out the frequent errors such as "Rid-ah" vs. the more correct "Ree-yahd". Not the only example I've noticed both here and on other 'casts'. An unfortunate distraction for myself and other nit pickers in an otherwise excellent landscape of enlightening, cogent and highly informative content.

    People that are talking nonsense about “slave” labor should first understand that their countries do the same to the migrants that come to their countries for example illegal immigrants in the USA but the difference is when a worker leaves Qatar he has enough money to start a good life in his country. And second of all no one is forced to work they can leave saying any different is complete nonsense the workers that are stuck here are workers that come here with a visa and a workplace that sponsor him and plan before hand on running away from their work to work illegally in hope of making more money from another job.
