Sentence:"Market experts and journalists are indeed the most informed and intellegent 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 mean I'll use one expression, but want to know both are correct in the sentence or not and have same meaning or not?

Regards and thanks Emotion: smile

They are the same meaning. 'In this world' is more common, so 'on this planet' injects more hyperbole.

They mean much the same thing, but "on the planet" sounds more extravagant and colourful, and is less appropriate in very formal text.

Spelling: "intelligent"
