Taiwan is the growth leader of the past 55 years

According to the Maddison growth data at Groningen, Taiwan's GDP per capita has grown by 1973% from 1950 to 2005 in real terms. The only non-Asian countries in the top 10 are Malta and Spain. We can discount Malta because of its small population size (currently 400,000; a third more than in 1950). The first American contry is Puerto Rico in postion 14. The first African Tunisia in 24.
