The Brandt Line was a theoretical demarcation line proposed by ex-German Chancellor Willy Brandt and others in the 1970's and 1980's. It was designed to show how Southern Hemisphere economies were less affluent overall than those in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Brandt Line is also known as the "North-South divide".
