Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. In the 1960s it was the poorest nation of the region, but aftre the earthquake in 1972 that devestated Managua, and the two wars that followed ( the first being the one in between the Sandinistas and Anastasio Somoza Debayle and the second being in between the Sandinistas and the Contras ; Nicaragua became the poorest of Central America's modern nations. The economy is based mostly on agriculture, which accounted for 22% of its gross domestic product (GDP) in 1999. Leading export coffee ($340 million) accounted for 22% of total Honduran export revenues. Bananas, formerly the country's second-largest export until being virtually wiped out by 1998's Hurricane Mitch, recovered in 2000 to 57% of pre-Mitch levels. Cultivated shrimp are another important export sector. Honduras has extensive forest, marine, and mineral resources, although widespread slash and burn agricultural methods continue to destroy Honduran forests. Unemployment is estimated at around 4.0%, though underemployment is much higher. The Honduran economy grew 4.8% in 2000, recovering from the Mitch-induced recession (-1.9%) of 1999. The economy is expected to grow 4-5% in 2001, led by continuation of foreign-funded reconstruction projects. The Honduran maquiladora sector, the second-largest in the world, continued its strong performance in 2000, providing employment to over 120,000 and generating more than $528 million in foreign exchange for the country. Inflation, as measured by the consumer price index, was 10.1% in 2000, down slightly from the 10.9% recorded in 1999. The country's international reserve position continued to be strong in 2000, at slightly over $1 billion. Remittances from Hondurans living abroad (mostly in the US) rose 28% to $410 million in 2000. The lempira (currency) has only moderately devalued. ...more on Wikipedia about "Economy of Honduras"
The economy of Hong Kong has often been cited by people such as Milton Friedman and the Cato Institute as an example of the benefits of laissez-faire capitalism. Many analysts believe that this characterization of the Hong Kong economy is not entirely accurate, as the Hong Kong government, both under British and Chinese rule, have occasionally intervened in the economy, for example by determining the amount of land to be sold and in maintaining the peg to the U.S. dollar. ...more on Wikipedia about "Economy of Hong Kong"

Jordan is a small country with limited natural resources. Just over 10% of its land is arable, and even that is subject to the vagaries of a limited water supply. Rainfall is low and highly variable, and much of Jordan's available ground water is not renewable. Jordan's economic resource base centers on phosphates, potash, and their fertilizer derivatives; tourism; overseas remittances; and foreign aid. These are its principal sources of hard currency earnings. Lacking forests, coal reserves, hydroelectric power, or commercially viable oil deposits, Jordan relies on natural gas for 10% of its domestic energy needs. Jordan depends on Iraq for most of its oil. ...more on Wikipedia about "Economy of Jordan"
