Third-World Countries

The Mind map I created is about Third-world countries, which experiences a poor state, low socioeconomic status etc. This is under politics or economic context/topic of Social Science. I choose this kind of idea due to the fact that it is use to identify what belongs to the most progressive country or the less fortunate countries. This mind map involves why these countries belong to third-world countries. I put some brief scenarios in regards to the topic.
