"the young nations were often ethnically heterogeneous, and lacked unity"
What happened to 'diversity is our strength'?
Ah the old colonization arguement. South Korea was colonized by the japanese and the Korean war destroyed all the infrastructure, result modern first world country. It's national values that count.
Wow, it's almost like 4chan has known this for years... ALMOST!
Africa needs to raise IQ levels, that can only happen with better Nutrition and changing of cultural ideas over the generations. It takes quite a few generations for IQ to rise and cultures to change values.
the other problem is that foreign investment can actually ruin a developing economy in the long term by essentially destroying local markets.
for example a foreign donation of enough food so that everybody has a free meal will cause local agriculture and the workers therein collapse financially and then they become reliant on investment and donations.
This also opens the possibilities for other nations like china to buy up vital infrastructure projects and create a whole new and comparably scary neo-colonialism situation but with more direct economic leverage than with previous iterations of so called colonialism
The solution is not as simple as help poor nations and poor nations wont have problems and that's why I think many scientists could not find a consensus on this topic
The west needs to stop feeding Africa
Do you finally realize how useless and destructive immigration is or will you stay ignorant for 10 more years?
"Sub-Saharan Africa does not need pity or gifts, but attention and fair investment."
Typical leftist doublespeak, wanting to have their cake and eat it too. They're entitled to your attention and investment, but don't you dare call it charity.
For anyone that is Suggesting Socialism is a good idea Get Bent. Forced Charity is an awful idea that would dramatically reduce economic growth because you aren't investing in the Future as much.
