Is the poverty of the third world the fault of the first world?

  • It was not initially the fault of the developed nations that people are in poverty.

    Although poverty was initially the fault of the third world nations it has now become partially our fault. These countries are no longer supported and the are so far into poverty to get themselves out so now it has become our problem and we should do what we can to get them out of poverty.

  • Poverty in the third world is the fault of first world.

  • Hanna is lelijk

    Ze is ook een kuttttkindje en ze moet gwn dr bek houden dat ze mooi is en dat ze naar Victoria secret gaat (dat is eigenlijk ook waar maar dat is alleen maar omdat de rest van de modellen dan nog veel mooier lijken. En ze is verliefd op Guusje en ze geeft haar vaak een kusje.

  • Analyze the economy of the first world and you will get a clear answer

    It comes down to a simple fact. Most of the countries rich today, had slaves in the past openly and all of them have them today "masked". Why is UK so rich? Do they have good soil, oli...Any other natural resource which is highly valuable? How the chocolate is made? From where the cacao is coming? Africa and Latin America, from farmers payed with almost nothing (slaves of the West). Yet. Who ownes big chocolate companies: Belgium, Austria, Swiss, Germany etc. And it goes on and on... Why PhD students are badly payed accros the globe? Because the imported talents from the third world are there to lower down the price of a PhD student and also obtain someone smart, hardworking and capable for a small money, with the promise of a career. And professorship afterwards: forget it. It will be given to BelgianS in Belgium, Dutch in Netherlands etc. Perhaps if you would be a future Einstein, but then US will take you in......AND you will still be badly payed compared to medical workers for example. Why? Because there are no scholarshop for studying medicine for foreigners.... So, yes, slavery 100 percent.

  • Poverty.. Violence.. Widespread disease.. It all comes down to over-population.

    Africa's birth rates are ridiculous and they only have themselves to blame for that. There is still an irrational tribal mentality amongst many Africans - believing that having a big family = power/success, rather than a reasonable mature approach - the more children you have, the less wealth they will each inherit from you! This simple lesson has still yet to be picked up in African culture - having a big family is a RESULT of wealth and NOT what leads to wealth.

    If you refuse to regard Africans responsible for anything (like a lot of irrational 'softies' would), then you should blame the multi-trillionaire church or Islam etc for it's strong anti-intellectual, anti-contraception enforcement.

    As for the economies, it is ridiculous to blame multinational companies alone. After all, it is the African 'politicians' who are in charge of the land and how it is run. It just so happens that fast money (multinational company agreements) appeal to these leaders more than doing what's best for the African public. It is an act of betrayal on the politicians behalf but for the multinational companies, it's nothing but a good deal. African governments are responsible for African people.

  • Think slavery, colonisation, exploitation, deculturalisation, worldwide inflation, infinite debts

    Why the African continent isn't likely to get on its feet anytime soon. I'll give one or more examples as I argue my point but know that within the 50+ countries of Africa, there are simply far too many.

    Because the natural resources are owned by multinationals. They get up to 50% of profits in the oil industry. Same goes for gold mines, diamond fields, etc. If the people try to rebel, the multinationals will orchestrate a coup or bomb the country and prop up a different dictator that would be favourable to their interests. This is the case of Mubarek (ex-president of Egypt), King of Morocco, etc.

    Because all the money supposedly given to Africans for fifty years doesn't actually reach them. In the case of Egypt it's directly channelled to the military so they can continue to enforce a totalitarian rule that wouldn't allow the people to prosper.

    Because there is massive sabotage of economic activity in Africa. There is worldwide inflation imposed on Africans thanks to the manipulations of the banking monopoly of the West. All African efforts to create an independent gold-based currency were in vain thanks to Western interference.

    Because there is importation of subsidised and consequently somewhat cheap goods from the West, so the average African farmer no matter how hard he works he will always have an insurmountable disadvantage against the forces of the West that want Africa an eternal dependent market. Such was the case of Benin's cotton industry.

    Because the world organisations that are supposed to help such as the IMF actually impose loans that they know cannot be paid back. They demand then that the Africans make cuts on vital sectors here and there, and that they buy exclusively western products as payback, that they hand out fishing and agricultural territories. Such is the case of Madagascar and others.

    Because there is massive weapon circulation in order to ensure eternal instability throughout the continent. This is not solely the fault of the western military industrial complex that sells all these weapons with absolutely no international supervision, but that of Russia and others as well.

  • Obviously!

    If the first world just simply handed their wealth to the third world, without expecting anything in return, and only acting in the interests of mankind, then everyone could be second world and Earth would be a better place. I don't understand why we listen to policies over our hearts, why we expect anything in return from starving children, or why we think we're worth their constant suffering. Pardon me, but I'm an American Soldier, and I'd give my last cent to these people. However, I know it wouldn't make a difference. It has to be a team effort, America. C'mon.

  • Our Comfort is their pain

    Anyone educated in these areas know that first world countries exploit third world countries. Things like free trade zones where we pay them very low wages and get away without paying extra taxes keep third world countries poor while keeping our prices down. Sometimes our government makes regulations that tries to prop up third world countries to depend in some way on first world countries such as how America behaved when coercing Haitians to get rid of their Creole pig in exchange for the pigs we use that rely on American feed. A pig is nothing to us, but was a source of wealth for many Haitians. We aid in their poverty and for some condescending reason choose to blame third world countries for their poverty after exploiting their natural resources

  • No, its not

    How can it be our fault when we provide and contribute to there plight and distress that is wrought about by there own government? We give them what they want, but according to statistics, part of breaking poverty is having a corrupt government so technically speaking, we are doing what is right to help them. Our duty is to help those in need. It is not our fault if they are in poverty.

  • No, its not

    It is not our fault that the third world countries are in a state of poverty. Since we have been able to have contact with them and interact with them, we have been trying to help them get out of their poverty. These third world countries tend to abuse their power and riches the moment they get it, so they lose it all right away.

  • No. Obviously not!

    Its not our fault we aren't their mothers and don't need to breast-feed them still. They can support themselves and grow their own food because we don't need to give everything into their laps. They need to work for their own food so they become sustainable. Obviously we don't have to!!!

  • Pien lelijk kut kindjuuhhh

    Pien is gwn facking lelijk dus we moeten haar absoluut geen geld geven. Wij als knappe mensen gaan lelijke mensen zoals Pien geen geld geven! Het is een feit dat Pien lelijk is, en naar mijn mening moeten lelijke mensen geen geld krijgen. Dus Pien jij mag lekker zwerver worden en oprotten! Doei

  • Hanna is lelijk

    Het is een feit! Met haar grote onder kin. En Hanna gaat naar Victoria secret zodat de rest nog veel mooier lijken. En ze denkt dat ze helemaal cool is en super mooi (maar dat is niet waar). En ze geeft Guusje heel vaak een kusje. 🤓 🤓 🤓 🤓

  • No no no

    No because we are gift of god we are not all the same but if there is poor it doesn't mean that it was fault of third world because we are the one who are doing something our selves to be successful...So why should we blame the third world. Why?
