  • The term "third world" dates back to the Cold War days when the USSR/Russia was in a constant face off with the USA and their allies. Those were considered the "two worlds" and the "third world" was all the rest, where they fought their proxy wars and vied for supremacy.

  • When I took geography in junior high school, they said japan was considered a 2nd world country. Same with korea.

    When we reached our unit on the middle east, there was no 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th world classification for them since the countries vary so much; plus not enough data at the time.

  • China, cuba, vietnam, russia are examples. Aligning with the USSR made a country second world. Nothing to do with money really
