Should developed countries help developing countries?

  • Think about yourself, what if you were in this position?

    Developed countries should really help out developing countries. They should help stop poverty if possible, and donate money to developing countries in order for them to survive what they are going through. What if you were living in a developing country? You'd suffer right? And you'd ask or bed for money as well. So why not make a chnage to the world, and do a good deed for once, and donate money to does developing countries..It will help a lot.

  • Yes we should help developing nations for many reasons actually. Every nation will affect the other. Countries that need help militarily, economically, and financially.

    I see that the developed nations, like the U.S, get involved either because they feel like they have a responsibility, or because they know that they will be affected if the other countries are in trouble. The world is intertwined financially and when one country is in trouble so are the others.

  • Help the poor countries get a world that more people can benefit from

    WE Need to HELP countries to develop their GDP. Developing countries need a government that doesn't suppress its poor, minorities, or its immigrants. THe governments in the developing countries need to start making equal oppurtunities to help bring up people from poverty. We can help these countries by asking our government to try helping these developing countries. We should also tell other people about this as well

  • Why developed countries should help developing countries clean up pollution.

    The developed countries should clean up the pollution because they are a more organized. Developed countries should take under consideration that the developing countries can't afford to cleaning up the pollution. They are still developing and they are not going to have the money to clean up the pollution. For example, in China the couples are only allow to have one child per family. If they are not financially stable to afford having more than one child per family. What makes you think they are going to be financially stable to clean the pollution? What makes you think they they are going to even care about cleaning up the pollution?

  • Help Them !

    Developed countries need to help developing countries ! We are all equal ! No human is better than the other, and we are all part of God's family and its simply not fair that some people have to suffer whilst others are living in luxury! We are all human and it is part of our nature to help others, there is more than enough food for everyone in the world, and an extra 2 million people! It's just a shame some people only care about themselves and their greediness takes over !

  • Think of post World War II Europe.

    After the long and detrimental war, Europe and Japan were reduced to rubble. The post war nations all had poor economies and lacked the resources necessary to rebuild. This is similar to how some "third-world" countries are currently. After World War II, the United States enacted the Marshall Plan -- a plan to provide nations of western Europe and Japan with economic aid and support so they would recover successfully from war as economically strong political allies to the United States. In short, the plan worked, and the majority of the assisted nations now have very powerful economies. Think of the enormous unharnessed potential in so many developing nations. Also, it's the right thing to do morally :)

  • Developed countries should help developing countries.

    Developed countries should help developing countries. Depending on the resources and the ability of the country to help the other country can lead to a good working relationship in the future. I do not believe that one country should step in and aide in battles when fighting with someone else. That just leads to unnecessary casualties.

  • Wouldn't It Be Wonderful If They Did!

    Yes, developed countries should help developing countries. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if developed countries would acknowledge the struggles of developing countries and offer a helping hand? Developed countries could get together and develop schedules where volunteer teams could donate a specific amount of time to help, then rotate out and be replaced by a fresh team. So many developing countries would be grateful for just the basics such as clean water, food and basic health care.

  • Yes, we should help developing countries

    Apart from the fact that helping your neighbor is a good thing, we need to recognize that the world is becoming more tightly drawn into a global community. It's no longer the case that developing countries are isolated and on their own. What happens in one place can have effects on the global stage, so we need to recognize that we are dependent on each other. Helping a growing country to develop can only benefit all.

  • Help.

    Yes, devolved countries should help developing countries. If you are lucky enough to live in an area of the word that is doing well, good for you. However we should all be concerned with the fact that not everyone has the same quality of life. We need to help as much as we can.

  • We have enough problems of our own.

    Just think about it. We barely have enough money to support ourselves, and the last thing we need is to support another country. I realize that helping others is a great thing, but we shouldn't let our own country's people slip into poverty. With rising food prices and other costs, we just can't afford it.

  • Will cause more harm than help

    More people that survive means an increased world population leading to increased strain on resources. Also, the united states in deep in debt and we can't afford to help others if we cannot help ourselves. Plus, why should we help another nation if they can potentially become stronger than us?

  • Developed countries should leave developing countries alone

    Having lived in the Dominican Republic for a few years outside of my normal life living in Boston as well as Salt Lake City, I have come to realize that any "aid" that we have given to undeveloped countries has caused more issues that it has fixed.

    The U.S. often will give relief packages, such as donated clothing, soap, food etc. to underdeveloped countries. This is a huge problem! I have seen first hand how these goods are handled. The government takes them in with a smile of thanks, but immediately turns around and sells the goods to the wealthier shop owners for twice their value, who then turnaround and sell the goods off at an even greater price (being usually expensive American made products, they get away with it). This does nothing but make the poor poorer and the rich richer since nobody living outside of the cities living on a dirt floor can afford such luxuries. It's a corrupt system of dealing that we as Americans often do not see on the outside.

    Now, are all third world and near-third world countries like this? I don't know, I haven't traveled all of them, but it is definitely something that we need to be more mindful of in the future.
