as so many readers blame nationalities for our poverty and economize the reason thus putting goverment control is lacking education and common sense.Poverty is the grandfather of Ignorance and unresourcefulness.

No, the Chinese and the Japanese don't have better ideas when they move into developing (third world) nations. They exploit just the same.

What a joke, a bunch of gourmet catered eggheads who have had 60 years or more to figure something out and nothing has improved except the exploitation. The Chinese are moving into many of those countries now, maybe they'll have better ideas.
