Apple Makes More Money Than the Entire GDP of New Zealand

By Gary Cutlack on at

Stats comparing Apple's cash-generation with the national economies of the world have turned up a few shocking results, with the tech giant pulling in more money than New Zealand and most individual African nations in the course of a year.

With its revenue expected to smash through the $180bn (£110bn) mark next year, that puts Apple's earnings above the GDPs of Iceland, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Ukraine, Paraguay and many more countries we can roughly locate on a map, plus Apple doesn't have to worry about maintaining any armies so more of the money it takes can go straight into its offshore ISA.
