In this assignment I learned that Greece and Namibia are two very opposite countries. One of the biggest differences in these countries is the population. In Namibia the population is 2.3 million, and in Greece the population is 11.13 million. This shows me that Greece does have a better economy as well as government. There is however a lower precent in Greece when it comes to then ” % of GDP spent on education. ” The precent in Greece that is spent on education is 4.09%. In Namibia the percentage is 8.37%. There are many more differences but those two were the ones that specifically grabbed my attention. I do believe that Greece is the most developed country compared to Namibia. One thing that shocked me to see was that the percentage of AIDS is unavailable and that Namibia is 13.3%.
