Sorry about the sun on camera.
The stat which says that the average salary of some 530 dollars you is misleading. 40percent of the nation is unemployed (most of them actually work but illegally) and the average salary is 800 KM because of huge salaries that people employed in the government departments have. Really a lot of people live with some 200 dollars per month.
There is no such thing as an easy understanding of economics, the salary is just a guide, that helps compare countries. What you are describing is generally the same for all countries on the planet, so I assume this, take it as knowledge that is not misleading, just is what it is.
