The Five Billion Plus

During the depths of the recent recession, it was common to hear from Establishment mouthpieces that the “undocumented worker” problem was a thing of the past because there was net zero migration from and to Mexico. So problem solved! Time for amnesty immigration reform. After all, nobody would ever come here from any country other than Mexico, right?

But back in 2005 I had calculated for VDARE.com that 4,976,000,000 people live in countries with lower average per capita GDPs than Mexico (using CIA World Factbook data).

Nine years later, it’s worth updating that statistic: the number of people in countries poorer than Mexico has risen to 5,762,000,000.

In the Western Hemisphere alone, 417,000,000 people live in countries poorer on average than Mexico.

Below  are all countries ranked by GDP per capita with populations:
