Title: Nicholas Zubrick: Resource Deprived Countries in World

Top Five Most Resource Deprived Countries of the
  • By Nicholas Zubrick

1 Vatican City
Vatican City has the worlds strangest economy,
which is almost non-existent and runs on the
financial support of Roman Catholics. It has the
smallest population of just 840 people and the
smallest area of 110 acres. Having absolutely no
natural resources of its own, Vatican City is
involved in providing financial services to other

2 Costa Rica
Located on the Central American isthmus, Costa
Rica is a very small country with virtually no
resources at all! Ironically, in Spanish Costa
Rica means- rich coast. But, despite the
scarcity, Costa Rica has managed to be globally
recognized for its environment sustainability as
well as for having a much higher human
development index.

3 Switzerland
Well, this name reminds us of the tick-tock of
watches and the shine of Rolex. It also
overpowers the senses with the taste of Nestle.
Yes, its Switzerland. Though its a very small
country and has almost no resources it has
managed to achieve high rates of growth.
Switzerland does not have a very strong base of
heavy industries but it has certainly developed
in terms of lightweight commodities production.

4 Belgium
Belgium has forever been overshadowed by
developed counterparts in Europe. It has even
fallen a step behind in terms of natural
resources which are almost non-existent in this
small country. But, Belgium has not given up.
Besides being a large entrepot, Belgium has the
largest diamond cutting industry in the world.

5 Taiwan
Economists and Social scientists revere this
country. Taiwan practically has nothing to boast
of. It even resorts to importing sand and gravel
from China to meet its construction demands. In
times when wars are waged over oil and natural
resources, Taiwan has just some coal and natural
gas but no iron ore, no forests, no precious gems.
