North-South divide

The North-South divide is the divide which separates the rich North or the developed world, from the poor South otherwise known as the developing or third world. The phrase "rich north, poor south" is sometimes used.

In the United Kingdom the term is also used to refer to the divide between the wealthy South East of England and the less affluent industrial areas of Scotland, Wales and northern England.
