Africa is one of the richest country in the world both in Natural Product and Natural Resources (Oil, gold, dimonds). Yet some how it remains one of
the world poorest areas.
How you may ask? getting zulus drunk so they sign over dimond mines to Europeans might be something to do with it.....? Europeans were raping the
natural Resources of Africa before the creations of the U.S. Its been going on for centuries and is still today.
Raping their economic situation in regards to trade might also help? All developed nations make more profits from Africans goods then Africans do. Aid
is no where near as effective as fair trade prices.
Fact is, you NEED Africa to be poor for our countries to maintain there current state. Do you honestly think our govenments would allow Africa
develop technologies of there own (mass produce), allowed to become an Economical power house? Our govenments are scared enough of India (some of the
worlds poorest are also here, strange world we live) and China (and here). Imagine the power Africa would have!
Thats it from me, the subject is very very very deep and hundreds of years old.
As for the worse place to live.........Earth the way its going.
