I think Mike is talking about better bandaids---even better than what the International Monetary Fund does "for" people in need. I am curious about what
thinks about these loans.
And of course this conversation is devoid of the possibility that these "poor people" were deliberately underdeveloped by powers greater than the worldly W2 employee confident about what the "third world" really is.
Poverty is not natural. Poverty happens when people are taken out of the world of nature. And it is so, so sad to assume that living in the world of nature has nothing to do with "advanced" technology. This assumption is what is actually stupid.
