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!

    In Australia we are a democracy and have lots of natural gas too which we export. But instead of saving and investing wisely we p.ssed is all against a wall.

    Democracy does not mean you are automatically a "good" nation.

    Saudi Arabia and Qatar are one people, religion and culture. Saudi Arabia is the big brother and none can divide them..... Iran and Hezbollah are terrorists, and people of the world now know better.

    Its funny how this guys gives an impression that being ally to west is good. Notice how he said a negative thing (Qatar is an absolute monarchy) and then said "But.." (Which implies something positive will come) "..they are a good ally to the West"
    Typical Western mentality, doesnt matter what you do or your human rights abuses, as long as youre a friend to the West youre good.
    Just like with Saudi Arabia hhh.
    Or also funny how he connects poor women rights with a poor country, women rights are fine in Qatar, you guys better worry about your dumb masculine acting feminists and most rape cases per capita countries lie in Europe :) while women in Arab countries are being pampered by their hard working men.

      because the brains want to work & earn. In US, there's something called H1B1 visa was designed to attract brains for the country to benefit from it. Qatar is a small nation who got it's Independence no more than 60 years ago and you wanna compare to likes of US or UK?

    Qatar is not the richest country on earth. This is total lies. Without America, Qatar is nothing.
    I say without the US protecting Qatar is nothing. Percapita, the 200 Qatari Royal family and the Prince may be the richest. But that does not make Qatar richest in the world.

You can steal and kill someone else for kidneys but your ass is going to due too sooner or that karma is going to bite your kids. They probably dont even care about their own kids. They kill their own kids, justifying it as honorary killings.

      +Quick Learn You need to go and study the effects of currency devaluation and inflation... having debt directly affects the value of a currency, imagine having infinite debt while being the source of the reserve currency... it's okay for the US because the Federal Reserve doesn't care for the fact that the US debt is increasing every second but the world's economy is the one to be suffering... so i stand by my point the sooner the world will turn its back to the dollar the sooner US economy will fall...

    • Quick Learn

      Ke Mt , Debt doesn't matter much becoz US economy is so huge. They can manage it.
      I don't get, how can someone compare US with Qatar? Qatar is not even in the level of Japan,south Korea, Germany, France when it comes to economy .

      US is the richest. Qatar is so small with very very less population compare to US. So it's pretty obvious that it will have highest gdp per capita. And qatars economy is nowhere close to US.

    You do not need to add "it has" to a subject you've already stated. Example, you keep saying "Qatar - it has" so and so. You only need to say "Qatar has" so and so. You say "natural gas - it wasn't that profitable". You do not need to add "it has". Just say "Natural Gas wasn't that profitable". For a seemingly intelligent guy you've become a victim of this basic and really annoying habit. More importantly, the notional figures you present about wealth are smoke and mirrors. A tiny proportion of this (and other) country's wealth reaches the people who actually work to improve Qatar's infrastructure. The vast majority of people who actually do meaningful work are abjectly poor and have virtually zero basic rights, no influence, no ability to challenge, and have no say in their living standards or any social or political influence.
    As to culture, there is none. None. Almost all the ridiculous wealth the LNG has afforded has been spent individually on pointless fast cars, jewels, dystopian high rise vanity buildings, shopping malls and other soulless and culture-less pursuits. A huge proportion of Qatar's foreign investments is in speculative gambling on European property prices. It is this "investment" which is pushing the prices of European property up and up. Yet, inexplicably, some people actually believe that these shallow, utterly soulless places are somehow "desirable". When you take away the huge amounts of cash flowing into the hands of a tiny minority of people who live there, you end up with a place that has nothing to show but what was there in the first place - millions of acres of sand and dust.

    You forgot to mention that the Northern half of the the "North Field" is actually situated in the maritime zone of Iran in the Persian Gulf, where it is called "South Field"
    So North is South and South is North in the Middle East.
    Also you forgot to mention that ExxonMobil of the USA is the major company making the LNG.
    Therefore, QATAR is a colony of the USA !
    Needless to say that QATAR "purchased" the FIFA World Cap with only a few millions dollars... pocket change for Qatar.
