    THe "investment" and "stability" are hige factors and will ultimately decide whether or not a country can reach that level...

    ...ignoring thoroughly random events such as tsunamis/earthquakes/meteor strike...

    I don't see why greenland is in the red. In 2100, im sure new technology will mean a new level of Industrialization than the present. Once you are in the lag, it can be very hard to catch up, India, China and a few others propably, but i think in 100yrs some countries might fall to the wayside as well.

    even thou it is a dependency (I think I don't recall it's exact standing) it is part of denmark.

    The countrys listed were not technically the only industrialised countrys, they are all OECD countrys http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OECD they are all supposed to
    be industrialised, mexico applyed to be a member over 30 years ago but decided not to let them in till they reached what OECD considers industrialised (which was 1994)
    There are probably a few countrys that are industrialised but not members ...argentina,estonia,chile maybe brazil? other than that I can't think of any so that's why I picked the OECS map.




    My thought is that even if there is not stability because of the low wages in africa and the industrialization of latin america,china,and india will lead to a mad dash by said countrys and rich countrys for investment in africa. Resources and cheap labor will be the main reason for this. That said any little war could promp the Security Council of the U.N. to try and put an end to civil wars in africa.


    ....I sense a book coming one :king: :lol:

    Some will, som won't.
    Some white countries already are more industrialised than Mexico or Turkey, which are red in the map.

    Yes of course those are considered "minimal" industrialisation but the level of education and job training in general allow educated people to be able to compete anywhere in the world. (in that context Brazil is there too ... brazil is probably more industrialised than mexico ofr turkey they just haven't applyed to the OECD yet I belive)

    As I recall Greenland is to Denmark as Puerto Rico is to the United States; not a colony, but a territory, it gets the best of being a province without actually being a part of the country.

    Molecular nanotechnology will render the need for heavy industrialization unecessary, and it will come way before 2100.

    I don't think this map is purely of Industrialization, maybe standard of living or something because I find it hard to believe that Mexico is more Industrialized than China or Russia.

    Argentina and Chile less industrialized than Mexico????

    I have to check that out.

    I see Argentina and Chile more 'modernized' than Mexico. Heck, Argentina even have some pretty good scientists, (working overseas though) and some nobel laureates

    They both are more industrialised than Mexico, and so is Uruguay. That map is of OECD member states, what doesn't necessarily reflect with precision the level of industrialisation.

    I think Georgians would get offended byt this;).

    And especially Africa is questinable, there are arguments that the current status is of use to First World. Also in the last 50 years most of Sub-saharan Africa got poorer...

    Considering all the factors, the level of confidence at which any extrapolation can be done 100 years from now is pretty much nil.

    Really, one is more than capable to exptrapolate. Let us gamble on the developments, and our descendants can sue each other over the outcome, on who got the closest estimate.
