The Term 3rd World

Using the term 3rd world is not ethical, the best term to use is developing world.

Third World, Ethics and Culture

To my knowledge, the definition of third world derived originally from the economic development of the country. When you use this term it is ethically wrong, since you attach a label of discrimination. Not only that you label the whole culture society of the country, when this label inculcates into the mindset of people it will gradually change their culture and the social behaviour. Hence it is unethical and discriminative.

Third World versus Developing Country

The use of these terms is not about ethics or discrimination. Read what Wikipedia says about those terms. The term "third world" arose during the cold war to define countries that remained non-aligned or not moving at all with either capitalism and NATO (which along with its allies represented the first world) or communism and the Soviet Union (which along with its allies represented the second world).
This definition provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the earth into three groups based on social, political, and economic divisions."
Wikipedia says "Developing country is a term generally used to describe a nation with a low level of material well-being (not to be confused with third world countries)...
