Why is China third world country?

Okay, is it just me?
Canada is first world country, but why is China considered as a third world country?

I mean, look.. what kind of third world country is this????

China is a second-world country and you clearly have no idea what first-, second-, and third-world country mean.

First-world countries were allied with NATO during the cold war.

Second-world countries were allied with the USSR during the cold war.

Third-world countries were not allied with either group during the cold war.

You should look at the smaller cities as opposed to big cities like Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Shenzhen, Dalian and Wenzhou etc etc.

And to answer the OP's idiotic question (not sure why it would even be worth the bother). Third World used to mean that it was neither first world (democracy) or second world (communist, which China is part of). However now it means developing country (where the majority of citizens extremely poor)

Because the vast majority of China's citizens are among the poorest people on the planet, it's considered a "third world" or "developing" country.

What I don't is that China always claims how much more powerful they are in term ecomically, military etc etc... yet it seems like the gov refuse to spend any money on improving the lives of their citizens. Instead of spending billions upons billions on their millitary they could have spend some of that money to helping its citizens (program such as impriving the air quality, traffic, housing, health care........). Is like none of that matters to them as long they show the world they got a pretty face, its citizens can suffer and no one cares......

If there's one positive thing,,,rumor has it China has spent a considerable amount of money on Thorium nuclear reactors (for energy).

Thorium has been proven to be cost effective and much safer. Norway is testing one out now.

it's cuz china takes care of what is important first... I think they're prioritizing economic stability over human life, because what's the point of human life, if you don't have a stable economy?

I should have said, what is "actually" important objectively.

i think we're laughing now, but they're not brutes.. they'll catch up fast and probably exceed us in, almost all aspects. as technology develops that can clean up pollution and help them pump out more energy, more efficiently, we'll be left behind.

technology will fix all their problems, and none of ours.

I'm sure they'll find their old chinese culture again. give them another 50-100 years.

First world countries = US & Allies (japan, south korea, west europe, etc etc)

As For the rest of the states which did not buy into the US Democracy propaganda (following end of WWII) needless to say were clumped into 2nd & 3rd world countries.

wasn't it technology that caused pollution in the first place?

North America/Europe would never allow the way factories in China handle their manufacturing processes. Its not so much that technology that will solve their pollution crisis (that's just wishful thinking), the factories just need to abide by processes that don't pollute the environment.
