Jeremy Corbyn has revealed he would choose to live in Bolivia – the socialist South American nation – if he had to move away from Britain.
The Labour leader said he spent time in the country while a teenager and found its development in recent years “absolutely fascinating”.
That is, there hasn’t been very much development.
It is grossly poorer. GDP per capita, at PPP (to take account of price differences, so measuring living standards) is around $6,000, as opposed to the UK’s $40,000.
And it’s also much more unequal, the gini is .46, as opposed to the UK’s .35 or .33 or so (after tax and benefits, of course).
So Corbyn likes a place which is shit poor and grossly unequal. But it says it’s socialist so that’s OK then.
