    Is Pakistan third world?

    The Pakistani Economy - Third World Economies
    Yes, Pakistan in my own judgement is STILL third world due to many numerous reasons.

    Yes, I did not say we are advanced. But third world is a wrong term.

    There is no third world in today's context. Third world was a term coined during the cold war to a group of countries that did not fall in the two major blocs - the Western capitalists and Soviet-led socialists. Pakistan, like many Asian and African countries are currently in the low-middle income group.
