The catastrophe, first, is of demographic nature. People are depressed, do not have children; fertility rate fell to nine per thousand. The destruction of Mediterranean countries has been programmed, even if Portugal is facing the Atlantic. Young people, especially educated ones, are leaving to find work, cities are emptied out as once were emptied mountain villages as a result of the exodus called rural. Modern life continues to do its work on the destruction of peoples and cultures....

..Today, Portugal has become a real third world country. Most salaries are around 400 euros per month. The minimum wage is under 500 euros a month, and this is in a country where life continues to be expensive, and where housing is particularly costly. After all, these are the characteristics of a contemporary third world country - low earnings and expensive life. It is the same poor country as Bolivia where people earn a little but do not need much....

You could say that it never really left the Third World. poor European Union members get assistance on the hopes that they can catch up with the most prosperous members, but to be a Developed Nation a country needs to have solid institutions, very competitive economic sectors and many other factors many European Union members aren't developing, it took a while but this is starting to become evident
