  1. This is quite surprising. The picture definitely says it all. Are the utopians simply ignoring this data or are they just ignorant?

  2. Thanks for the comment…

    I’m going to put up some other global maps on economic activity in the near future.

    I just thought this one was interesting because it looks like people who live in more free societies can more easily obtain the basics of life.

    That doesn’t seem like rocket surgery.

  3. Dear,

    I’m just amazed how easy seems for you to make critics…

    Go in the head of the IMF or the WTO and you’ll see how it’s easy to deal with 200 countries as differents as the 5 fingers of your hand!

    I’m travelling and doing business with people from Asia, America and Europe… And i Know it’s nothing but easy to deal with different culture ..

    Second point i’m currently living in China, I’m sorry for you but their buying power is as hight as our mister i “know everything”

    Where do you come from by the way ?

    Europe ?

    Then my third point is there :

    I come from France, the governement pass the retreat age to 62… all the peoples are OMG thios is the end of the world.

    Now ask yourself if you can say :
    NO to your TV
    NO to your computer
    NO to your shower every day
    NO to electricity at 4am when you wake up
    NO to your fucking radio
    NO to everything make a European poluted more than 10 south country peoples….
    YES to your children when he gonna get sick and no one for give him medicime,
    YES when you see your parents with a cancer and you cannot cure it because our countries became as poor as their…
    YES when you see your friend lying down almost dead and you know that even if the fire workers arrived they wont do nothing exept finish him, or repair him…. in a way you can see in poor countries..

    The answer to that is obvious so just to beeing Hypocryte and say thank you to the IMF and the WTO they let us still a bit beeing in the “rich countries”.

    MY LAST WORD : The earth is too big and sorry to tell you that but not everyone and every country can be RICH…

    Sounds awefull but just think a bit further than your feets..
