This can be shown bycountries like India & Egypt, that are morethan 2000 years old and are poor.
On the other hand,Canada, Australia & NewZealand, that 150 yearsago were inexpressive, are today developed countries and rich.
The difference betweenpoor & rich countriesdoes not reside in the availability of its natural resources.
Japan has a limited territory: 80% mountainous and inadequate foragriculture & cattle raising … but,it is the second largest economy in the world. The country is like an immensefloating factory which imports rawmaterial from the whole world and exports manufactured products.
Another example is Switzerland, whichdoes not plant cocoa but has the best chocolate of the world. In its smallterritory they raise animals and plant the soil for only 4 months a year. Not enough, but are stil able to produce dairy products of the best quality. It is a small country that portrays animage of security, order & labor, which in turn made it the safe-haven for the world.
Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts in poor countries show thatthere is no significantintellectual difference.
Race or skin color are also not important: immigrants labeled as being lazy in their countries of origin have become theproductive power in rich Western countries.
The difference, is the attitude of thepeople, framed inside the years of their education & their culture.
On analyzing the behavior of the people in rich & developed countries, we find that the great majority follow thefollowing 9 principles in their lives:
1. Ethics, as a basic principle.2. Integrity.3. Responsibility.4. Respect of the law & rules.5. Respect of the rights of other citizens.6. Love for work.7. Strive to save & invest.8. The will for super action.9. Punctuality.
In poor countries, only a minority adhere to thesebasic principles in their daily life.
We are not poor because we lacknatural resources or because nature was cruel to us ...
We are poor because we lack attitude. We lack the will to comply with, and teach, thesefunctional principles of rich & developed societies !!! ------------------- The End Use [ESC] to Exit
