There is also something called loans to GDP ratio. The common theme of the countries mentioned is their astronomical debts where they lived beyond their means. It is only a temporary fix, does not remotely means you are rich. You may have shiny malls but do not have anyone who can buy anything, just open one of your newspapers, your pharmaceutical companies are shutting down cause they can not buy API. Are you really going to have us believe you are richer?
In lebanon bank heist are carried out by actual depositors not robbers.
No one claims BD is a paradise but with an economy 35%+ bigger than yours, GDP per capita almost twice as yours BD is in a different league to PK.
Why was IMF not impressed by your roads and malls? You only asked for only $1.5b? Do you think they are playing hard to get because they think you have a secret money tree somewhere?
Different league? You talking as if you have a $50K per capita. Your stats department is notoriusly corrupt and papers routinely say their figures are false. Go look at the corruption Index where you are rightly placed below us. Your cities look like shambles and there is literally no recognizable brand in BD. We recently had Tim hortons open in Lahore which set a world record for first day spend. Google retail spend in PK and BD and compare them.
The world happiness report just released and you are below us there as well. Much more comprehensive than HDI and has more categories.
Can you even post some pictures from Dhaka/Chittagong? You cant because they are nowhere near waht we have.
Making T shirts and under garments in bulk makes you export more. That has nothing to do with spending power of the people. You are confusing the two.
I can name 100s of indexes where you are behind.
