So what do you think is the difference between somebody who lives in the first-world versus somebody who lives in the third world? Sociologists actually have pinned down a particular good/service that we use in the first-world that they use as the hallmark of identification. So, most everybody uses this good/service in the first-world no matter how poor you are, and hardly anybody uses this good/service in the third-world.

Let the guessing begin!

Not the answer I was looking for, but probably just as good. I don't personally know how prevalent soap is in the third world... come to think about it, I don't know very much at all about the third world. Do we have a responsibility to find out about these people because of our indirect effects on them?

I'll give my answer soon if nobody else has a guess.

I have admitted my ignorance of how third-world people live.

The correct answer is laundry facilities. Just about everybody in the United States has access to electric washers and dryers. Wealthy own their own, while poor use quarters at a laundromat. Have you heard of even the poorest individuals in the US washing their clothes in a river, like everybody does in the third-world?

Point taken, but I could also say they haven't had Doritos Locos Tacos at Taco Bell. I'm sticking with my answer -_-

Rich: Having a great deal of money or assets; wealthy.
Poor: Lacking sufficient money to live at a standard considered comfortable or normal in a society.
