Is Africa the poorest continent on earth? The answer is NO. Africa is not the poorest continent on earth. In fact, Asia is far poorer than Africa. The Indian subcontinent alone contains nearly 50 percent of the total population of poor people in the world today. Africa and the rest of Asia contain about 40 percent of the world's poor population. Latin America and the rest of the world contain the remaining 10 percent. So as you can see, Africa contains just about 20% of the world's poor population. Asia contains at least 60-65% of the world's poor population. It depends on how you view poverty. If you are judging continents based on the number of advanced countries, then you may put Asia ahead of Africa because of countries like Japan and China. However, if you are judging continents based on
The World Bank and the IMF (the International Monetary Fund) were set up during the end of the Second World War to rebuild the economies of Europe. However, in order for the world bank and the IMF to implement their policies, they (the world bank and the IMF) began offering loans to poor countries but only if the poor countries privatized their economies and allowed western corporations free access to their raw materials and markets. That was a poverty trap and many poor countries realized it when it was too late. We were already in chains.
That was the beginning of much of the problems we face today in Africa. Now we are in a vicious cycle of poverty and there seems to be no way out.
Some westerners are often surprised when they visit Africa for the first time and see happy faces all around them. They are often surprised why because the Africa they see online is quite different from the Africa they see when they come to visit the continent. Some expect nothing but pain and misery in Africa just like CNN, BBC and the rest often paint Africa to be. Some expect nothing but poor starving children lying on the streets half-dead. Some westerners expect nothing but teary faces of poor grandparents praying to death to come take them. Some westerners expect nothing but the worst among the worst in Africa why because the western media where they learn from, always paint Africa a "death hole" full of nothing but poverty, hunger, and deaths which is not true
All of a sudden, several strange diseases are appearing in Africa for the first time and not so many people seem to know why. There are so many reasons why several strange diseases continue to tear people into pieces in Africa today. In this article, I will focus on the pollution aspect. Africa is polluted and the pollution mostly comes from the outside world. Here is an example. Western countries (including the United States, the UK, Australia, Germany, etc.) are busy turning Africa into a garbage dump. These western countries are busy turning Africa into an E-waste hell. They are coming again with ships but this time around not empty ships to pack slaves in but rather ships full of hazardous waste materials to dump in Africa so as to poison us all dead. The International Organization for Standardization "ISO" has laid down several rules and regulations
This is the story of Kenya's coastal children and this is everyday life in Kenya. The tourism industry continues to boom and Kenyan politicians couldn't be happier. According to the Kenyan leaders, tourism is booming and it is all "good". Yes it is all "good" news. This is what the world often gets to know while the reality hides under the dark shadows of the wicked one.
The "pampers" market continues to boom near the coastal waters of Kenya but the sad truth is that, not so many people know why all of a sudden, almost everybody is buying pampers in the coastal towns of Kenya today. The pampers industry continues to flourish in the coastal towns of Kenya and all thanks to the booming tourism of pedophiles and perverts
My great grandfather had no clock but he was always on time why because he could tell the time just by looking at the position of the sun. My great grandfather could tell the time just by listening to the sound of birds and even the croaking voices of frogs. My great grandfather could see even with his eyes closed. It is a huge mistake to refer to such a man as an illiterate. Most of us the so-called educated men and women of the world today, have clocks in our homes. Some of us even carry wrist watches and cell phones with us yet we are almost always late.
A stupid man is far more dangerous than an atomic bomb. A wise man fears not the weapons of mass destruction but the stupid men operating those weapons.
