Homogenized classification of developing economies: different countries behind general indices

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



On the basis of the evaluations by some international organizations countries in Southeast Asia and in Eastern Europe belong to the same group – to that of developing countries – however they are quite different regarding their fundamental characteristics. The key elements of the comparison of countries are different indicators and indices (GDP, GDP PPS, HDI and HPI) and those used to form groups of nations. But do these indicators have sufficient validity? The main aim of the article is to compare the fundamental characteristics of the Philippines (Southeast Asia) and Hungary (Eastern Europe) to answer this question. - (AM)
