    Regarding a use of expression.

    Sentence:"I agree, market experts and journalists are indeed the most informed and intelligent people in the world/on the planet"

    My question: What is a difference between these expressions "in the world" and "on the planet"? Are they same? Are both correct in the sentence? I know at a time only one expression can be used in the sentence. I just want to their meanings, difference between them and they are correct to use in the sentence or not.



    Regards and thanks

    They both mean the same and either could be used in that sentence. Whether or not the sentiments expressed are true, is another question.
