However, the concept of third world is not a concept that is used today by exclusively political meaning. This is because, before the fall of the block Soviet and the disappearance of the second world, the dynamic between the first and the third world was established mainly at economic and social level. In this sense, the organization between these two regions is the economic, political, social and cultural primacy of first-world against poverty, misery and underdevelopment of the third world.
Among the countries of the third world we find throughout the African continent (perhaps the poorest region of the world) but also to Latin America and Southeast Asia. While some countries in these last two regions are in fervent growth and development (like China or Brazil), the remaining countries are characterized by a high proportion of their total population below the poverty line. In addition, countries of the third world are those who have not been able to develop an economy independent and dynamic, depending on much of the permanent assistance of international organizations. Finally, at the cultural level of third world countries are those in which the regional expressions have been largely eliminated by those expressions and cultural performances, imported from the world's great powers.
