    Which developing country has the best political system?

    The term "developing country" can mean anything from a third-world economy with high ambitions to a country that is on the verge of becoming first world, but isn't traditionally thought as such in the United States. Economies can be treacherous, but a solid political foundation can allow a country to grow and develop on a regular footing, weathering storms and making the most of opportunities. Which developing country do you feel has the best political foundation for its people to advance?

    Define "advance".

    I'll let people define it however they wish. Use common sense.

    Okay, so this is just rhetorical masturbation. Have fun.

    I really don't think that Singapore should be on that list.

    Actually, the poll question is intended to foster intelligent conversation, which you've just helpfully excluded yourself from. Thanks.

    Neither do I, but I wanted to offer a broad range of options.

    That's merely a healthy sign of democracy. Look at ours.

    First off Singapore is a developed country and is richer than the US, and should not be on the list.

    Chile
    - Good country with a stable government and sound policies. Is the richest country in South America.
    Indonesia - No, but it is not the worst country out there, but do have a lot of problems.
    Malaysia - One of the better ones, but I don't like how they discriminate everyone that's not Malay.
    Singapore - Not a developing country, but is doing very well
    India - No, they should have done much more to get poor people out of poverty, and has a very limited economic freedom.
    Brazil - Nice country for vacation, but certinally doesn't have the best political system. Too much crime and too little economic freedom. However, they are improving in both areas.
    Turkey - Also one of the better ones especially compared to other muslim countries, but I don't believe they have any potential. Just a poorer and more extreme version of Greece.
    Argentina - Never, they were a first world country and now is a third world country. How embarrasing! They are undermining their own potential by having huge restrictions on the market and they had huge troubles with their debts.
    Mexico - Drug cartels, huge income inequality a lot of crime. I think that says enough

    I have to go for Chile, since they are doing pretty well. They have kept crime down, they have good growth rates and is the richest country in South America, just joined OECD, but their income inequality is too high. But income inequality is too high in every single country in South America. Also Venezuela. Funny thing is, socialist Venezuala is filled with slums, while Chile has a lot less than other countries in South America.

    It goes a little deeper than that. Don't get me wrong, I think India has a bright future - or at least bright relative to how most of its people currently live.

    Point taken.

    Agreed.

    Sadly, I agree here too.

    I doubt they've become a third world country again simply due to debt. There is such a thing as social inertia.

    Good point, hadn't seen that part before.

    They were filled with slums before they elected Chavez - it's probably why they did. Not that he's going to change that.
