RICH VS POOR

WHY IS OUR COUNTRY POOR?


Here is a good article sent by Dr. Arsenio Martin of Fort Arthur, Texas


Enjoy reading.



THE DIFFERENCE



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


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

but are poor.


On the other hand, Canada , Australia and 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

and cattle raising, but it is the second world economy. The country is like an

immense floating factory, importing raw materials from the whole world and

exporting manufactured products.


Another example is Switzerland , which does not plant


cocoa but has the best chocolate in 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 make it the


world's strongest, safest place.


Executives from rich countries who communicate with their counterparts

in poor countries show that there is no significant intellectual difference.


Race or skin color are also not important: immigrants labeled lazy in

their countries of 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 and flawed tradition.


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:


01. Ethics, as a basic principle.

02. Integrity.

03. Responsibility.

04. Respect of laws and rules.

05. Respect to the rights of other citizens.

06. Work loving.

07. Strive for savings and investment.

08. Will of super action.

09. Punctuality.

10. and of course...Discipline


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


The Philippines is not poor because we lack natural resources or because

nature was cruel to us. In fact, we are supposedly rich in natural resources.


We are poor because we lack the correct attitude. We lack the will to comply

with and teach these functional principles of rich and developed societies.
