50 countries with the fastest-growing GDP per capita

Stacker Logo By Frederick Reese of Stacker | Slide 2 of 51: - Projected GDP per capita growth 2014-2024: 53.99%
- 2014 GDP: $63.27 billion ($1,230.53 per capita)
- 2019 GDP (projected): $65.67 billion ($1,238.52 per capita, 0.65% growth from 2014)
- 2024 GDP (projected): $103.56 billion ($1,894.87 per capita, 52.99% growth from 2019)

The country formerly known as Burma is trying to rebuild itself. In 2013, a Myanmar government study found that 37% of the nation's population was unemployed, and 26% was impoverished. In Chin State, located in western Myanmar, the poverty rate was a staggering 73%.

However, McKinsey Global Institute analysts have found that an investment in high-tech industries in the country—along with a change in policy with the nation's drug enforcement and treatment of certain ethnic groups—could lead to a quadrupling of the nation's economy by 2030. The refinancing and dismissal of approximately $6 billion of the nation's debts in 2013 has helped the nation's economic health.
