Should developed countries help developing countries?

  • Yes, But not with everything.

    I believe bigger countries should participate with trades between smaller countries and help them build a support system, But I don't believe that bigger countries should give money or do everything for the smaller countries. They need to do that themselves, Sometimes they just need a little bit of help.

  • Developed countries should help undeveloped countries.

    The countries that are in mass amounts of debt and are still struggling to rebuild themselves. And most of these countries are still recovering from the intense pillaging and invasion from rich countries not only stealing natural resources from places like Africa and India, but also kidnapping citizens to force into slavery. After the rich countries stole these countries means of making money and developing themselves the countries never recovered, it is because their level of poverty is the fault of the rich countries that developed countries are obligated to help these countries develop.

  • This should be done to an extent

    We need to do this so that countries we are helping dont start to rely on us. Once this happens, the countries become reliant and start to demand for more help from other countries. So yes it is our responsibility to help, but we need to consider how we could be tearing down them country.

  • Developed countries have a responsibility to help developing countries.

    I bet for whoever wishes to help, should help with a basis. For instance, africa has evolved from some where what was to be changed if it has failed, then, please developed countries dont get angry, were are your brothers and sisters who i believe you would feel happy see us lament when you are blue, the sense of humanity is key. Assist because you have the spirit of a common good. In doing so, come in involve us with ideas that will prevent us from sinking. Personally am ready to be held or supported.
    Above all the spirit of dialogue and transperancy is what is lacking. That can only take place when able one come snsitise us and charism will bear fruit.

  • Because if you don't we are being selfish... There is plenty for everyone so why not help,

    Because if you don't we are being selfish... There is plenty for everyone so why not help, emagen if you were in there position how would u feel and right now if you are reading this you have all you need and you can help them. Please its odvious and for those who think we shouldnt help them you are too caught up in your own life and dont realise that there are people out there with no food and only have access to dirty water... Dont be one of those people who turn a blind eye to reality.

  • It will make them happier

    If we help them than it will make them happier because instead of walking 2 hours for water or looking out for there siblings they could be playing with there friends and that is why we need to help under developed contras be paying them or giving them water and food

  • They should help developing countries

    We should help people in developing countries because we could help thousands of people from death. After all we are people and we stand up for each other and serves all beings.
    "Let go of the thoughts of 'I' to benefit loved ones. Let go of benefiting loved ones to help those we know. Let go of helping those we know to serve all beings."

  • Living in abundance but not making a difference

    The argument I'm making is of ethics and morals. People in 1st world countries are unbelievably privileged and grow unhappier and more unsatisfied with it each day. The societies are becoming increasingly egocentric and shallow each day, while people in 3rd world countries are not having their most basic needs met, they are dying each day. The conditioning of people in 1st world countries has us trained to be money and power hungry, self serving and shallow, uncaring people. We live as if
    these people, these countries, do not exist. They are not
    real; just another story on the news. Imagine being that invisible. Where has the sense of moral, societal obligation gone? Have we been so distracted from the reality going on in this planet or just emotionally numbed down and convinced we are not responsible, we shouldn't care; they don't matter. Do you really call that living, being human? Who wants to live in such a system, only feeding their own ego with more and more materialistic things and worrying about miniscule problems this narcissistic society itself has created? Yes, there are real problems in 1st world countries too; emotional
    violence, physical violence and such, but some are dying from starvation.

  • We should all support each other

    Even if we don't think about it, developing countries often help us: They intact to the worst and dirty jobs for us. They cultivate lots of our food, they make most of our clothing materials. I believe that we should change back. I know that it is not fair for them to do those kind of jobs but the least that we can do is help them out with donations.

  • Debt debt debt

    They wouldn't be self-efficient and would just spend our money on non-needed things and would probably not pay us back and would be in debt again in no time. They would just use the U.S. and think they can take advantage of us. It wouldn't be fair at all... :(

  • They will only spend

    They will only spend and not be self sufficint. For example, in bangladesh, the government is training citizens to stop spend their money. Also, even if we send them money, they will never pay back, since they don't earn money and they only spend. . . . . . .

  • No Developed countries should not

    Too much money t t t t t tt t t t t t t t tt t t t t t t t t t t tt t t t t tt t t tt t t tt t tt t t tt t t t tt t t

  • It's not really helping either us or them

    Developed nations and developing nations are same country in this world, but if developed nations help developing nations, that nations would be sorry for developed nations. Like when you are being helped by some younger boy. Developing nations would be sorry and the relation of two countries wouldn't be good

  • I feel that it's our duty

    For all the countries in the world that have a stable society should aid the less fortunate countries. If the developed countries are able to provide for the less fortunate, why wouldn't they help out. I feel that this country is full of people that don't have what we do.

  • 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?

  • Please read :)

    Angus Deaton the last Nobel prize winner says that trying to help out poor countries may hurt more than heal. Providing aid to undeveloped countries have been proven in some cases to corrupt governments even more and stunt development rate he stated. “The data suggested that the claims of the aid community were sometimes not borne out. Even as the level of foreign aid into Africa soared through the 1980s and 1990s, African economies were doing worse than ever, ” from a paper by economist Bill Easterly of New York University, Shows that the influence of foreign aid does not affect economic growth or development, In fact, It stunts growth and decreases economic income.
    Although I do think that support is needed during natural disasters and war and we should be inviting them into our country I don't think we should we should be sending very large corporations to undeveloped countries because it will stunt development growth

  • Africa will only rely on foreign aid, and won't know how to provide for themselves

    Honestly it is just a waste of money ike o you really think Africa is going to succeed by always geting help? No! They are just going to rely on the countries that are helping them, and it wouldn;t teach them to be self sufficient, so when the Developed countries stop helping them, they will not have a clue what to do, just like when the colonial leaders stopped ruling over Africa and Africa didn't have any good rulers so they were left out to suffer, the same thing will happen if developed countries provide debt relief. Also not to mention that the Unites states is already giving Africa some money, but you don't see them succeeding now, so why do you think if we give them even more money they will succeed? - SF

  • Charities have been helping long before the Governments started to intervene.

    Missionaries from all religious organizations have been going to all these countries for generations. They would minister to there spiritual well-being as well as teach skills such as farming, hygiene, trade skills and etc... They were and still are having huge impacts on these 3rd world countries (for the better). Albeit small and incremental improvements none the less. Missionaries do there work in the same fashion of " Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a life". 1st World Government hand outs however have the effect of feeding them for a day, never seeing any sign of self reliance. I say stop this racists and bigoted ruling of other countries. It's racist and bigoted because we as a whole country are sending the message that we do not think that these 3rd World countries are remotely capable of helping themselves. Rather we should be willing to assist in specific requests from a third world country. For example, we need affordable electricity, we have determined that the best solution is a nuclear power plant. However we lack the technological know how and expertise to build such structures. May we borrow some experts from your countries (ie Engineers, scientists and so on.) that can help us move in the right direction. Thank you for your time.
