The difference between the poor countries and the rich ones is not the age of the country.

This can be shown by countries like India & Egypt that are more than 2000 years old and are poor.

On the other hand, Canada, Australia & New Zealand, that 150 years ago were inexpressive, today are developed countries and are rich. The difference between poor and rich countries does not reside in the available natural resources.

Japan has a limited territory, 80% mountainous, inadequate for agriculture & cattle rising, but is the second world economy. The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw material from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.

Another example is Switzerland, which does not plant cocoa but has the best chocolate of the world. In its little territory they raise animals and plant the soil during 4 months per year. Not enough, they produce dairy products of the best quality. It is a small country that transmits an image of security, order and labor, which made it the world’s strong safe.

Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts in poor countries show that there is no significant intellectual difference.

Race or skin colors are also not important: immigrants labeled lazy in their countries o origin are the productive power in rich European countries. What is the difference then?

The difference is the attitude of the people, framed along the years by the education and the culture. On analyzing the behavior of the people in rich and developed countries, we find that the great majority follow the following principles in their lives:

  1. Ethics, as a basic principles.
  2. Integrity.
  3. Responsibility.
  4. Respect to the law and rules.
  5. Respect to the rights of other citizens.
  6. Work loving.
  7. Strive for saving and investment.
  8. Will of super action.
  9. Punctuality.

In poor countries, only a minority follow these basic principles in their daily life.

We are not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel to us. We are poor because we lack attitude. We lack the will to comply with and teach these functional principles of rich and developed societies.

If you love your country, let this message circulate for a major quantity of people could reflect about this and change. Act now!!!

    Very true!! The difference is the respect of the basic principles and the knowledge – what ppl do with it, how and where, which areas they use it. And very important: gov concerned about population and their life conditions.
