The UNDP Human Development Report of 1999 stated that the fifth of the world's people living in the highest income countries has 86 per cent of world gross domestic product (GDP), 82 per cent of world export markets, 68 per cent of foreign direct investment, and 74 per cent of telephone lines. The bottom fifth, in the poorest countries, has about one per cent in each category.
