Topic: Undeveloped countries


  
  Developing country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The application of the term 'developing country' to all of the world's least developed countries could be considered inappropriate: a number of poor countries are not improving their economic situation (as the term implies), but have experienced prolonged periods of economic decline.
The term "developing country" often refers mainly to countries with low levels of economic development, but this is usually closely associated with social development, in terms of education, healthcare, life expectancy, etc.
Developing countries are in general countries which have not achieved a significant degree of industrialization relative to their populations, and which have a low standard of living.

It cannot be denied that capitalism has entered a particularly pernicious phase in its development – euphemistically called ‘globalisation’ – in undeveloped countries as large corporations viciously compete globally to secure markets and relentlessly exploit labour in countries where they reputedly earn 75 percent of their profits.
Countries don’t dominate or exploit other countries; the capitalist class who own the companies and corporations assisted by their respective governments exploit the working class everywhere, regardless of their geographical location.
Ordinary workers don’t invest in other countries or claim ‘free trade’ is an impetus for global prosperity; companies and corporations invest in order to generate ‘super-profits’ and it is they as a class who prosper, not ordinary working people.

 Civil Law - dKosopedia
Except for a few countries which have either a British legal tradition, known as Common Law countries, or a handful that have their own unique legal systems (such as China and Iran), the countries of the world use what are called a "Civil Law" system.
The ease with which a Civil Code could be adopted by a country with no history of a Westernized court system is one of the main reasons the Civil Law system has been favored outside of Europe by developing and undeveloped countries.
In contrast, Common Law countries generally approach "Public Law" from the assumption that the government called the "Sovereign" in the British tradition, is immune from all liability except where the government has specifically consented to liability (such as in a contract, or in a statute authorizing particular claims on particular terms).

 Defense of Globalization
Undeveloped countries always plead that the terms of trade are worsened.
It means that instead of raising protection, the undeveloped countries have a strong interest in reducing all barriers and in developing free trade.
Secondly, undeveloped countries are mainly responsible for this situation through massive deforestation which is irreversible because the destroyed humus prevents any further replanting.

 Position Paper:  Undeveloped Countries/No Action (UDNA)
Third world countries are characterized as being less developed than industrialized free-market countries of the first world countries, by their rural social structure, as the poorest in terms of income per head of population, and as having a high natality.
First world countries need to be convinced that their involvement is crucial to the success of future generations in under-developed countries.
Secondly, the CTWC is to regulate the involvement of developed countries and ensure that it is assistance, improvement, and equality that is being implemented, not a hidden act of tyranny.

 PCI :: Public Communications Inc. :: Infant Formula in Undeveloped Countries
Since what most Americans knew about a controversy surrounding the use of infant formula in undeveloped countries came from media coverage, reaching reporters and editorial page editors with the facts was the best way to influence public opinion.
Questionable marketing tactics in undeveloped countries by non-U.S. infant formula manufacturers had been widely reported in the press.
PCI was retained by a manufacturer to help set the record straight and organized a series of editorial board briefings with major metropolitan newspapers across the country for a team of company officials.

 Egypt
Countries that supported the boycott no longer purchased Egyptian television programs, stating that they did not need to buy directly from Egypt because so much quality material was available from Egyptian artists living outside the country.
Anyone with a printing press has the technical capability of reaching the literate elite, and while this is seen by the government as a potential threat, it is not nearly as great a political liability as a monopoly radio station broadcasting to millions.
Radio and television, which have the potential of instantaneously reaching every single person in the country and many outside it, are regarded by the Egyptian government as too important to be left to private interests.

 Breastfeeding Cuts Breast Cancer Risk - health news   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The authors based their conclusion on data which included several undeveloped countries (called "developing" countries) where the breast cancer rate of women is far lower than in the 'developed' nations.
And since women in undeveloped countries typically have more children and breast feed longer, the authors have concluded that a higher number of children, and longer breast feeding reduces the incidence of breast cancer.
The first reason is that women from undeveloped countries who emigrate to developed countries acquire the same high breast cancer rates as the women of these developed countries - regardless of how many children they had, and how long they breast fed their children.

Countries want to have control over their own natural resources which they claimed to be part of their sovereignty.
If a developed country is dependent on (and possibly exploiting) a resource from an undeveloped country which is abusing its resources, the developed country may be reluctant to interfere because the undeveloped country might perceive as a violation of their sovereignty.
Everyone is so concerned with the economic suffering their country might feel as a result of a strict binding agreement that, that they are not willing to sacrifice some of their present benefit to achieve a greater future for future generations, their country, the environment, and the earth.

 Essay 6
The World Bank and IMF claim that they help by loaning these undeveloped countries money so they can build schools and health centers, and provide their citizens with the essentials to help build a healthy community, and way of life.
Many countries just like Hungry have been lied to, and convinced that the way that the IMF and World Bank is the only way to get there country on top of things again.
Right now the poor countries opinions/advise are not taken because the wealthy countries control the IMF and World Bank and they don’t think that they need to listen to the other side because obviously they don’t know what they are doing because their country is still poor.

While undeveloped countries have less of a responsibility to help save the environment they should be willing to trade with low tariffs with the developed countries so the developed countries are not losing all the money they put in.
The developed country couldn’t only rely on the money they would be saving in not paying tariffs they would have to start programs to allow them to capably support the undeveloped country’s environment.
The UN can also help by putting their people in the undeveloped countries’ government to ensure the money donated will be used for environment protection, and to make sure that both countries uphold the agreement that was made.

The advantages of privatization are evident in developed countries; however, undeveloped countries would suffer drawbacks to privatization.
Natural monopolies would arise in undeveloped countries because in these countries it is not easy to start up a water business, distribution networks are not mobile, there is a presence of corruption, and there are poor capital markets.
In developing countries, one of the problems with privatization is that the companies will lose money if their customers are low-income families and need subsidies from them.

 -Must be a member of UN
The supporting countries will be asked to loan money to the developing countries and in return receive a tariff deduction benefit from imports from the developing country after the first year of the program.
For developed countries to become supporting countries, yet be secured from a possible collapsing of the economy in a developing country, the developed country must be an active donor of an economical aid program such as ODA, official development assistance, or other non-government run program, approved by ECOSOC.
By the time the country has become fully developed economically, tariffs become just a regular security, but do not have the same results as before when the tariffs were necessary.

If we impose our idea that the development of a country consists of having a prosperous and competitive economic system, that people from that particular country have cars and lead the same life style that we lead, then we are just imposing our notion of development.
They are not undeveloped countries, but countries on their way to self-realization, and we are all included.
There are a number of ways in which we can help these ‘undeveloped’ countries to be self-sufficient, but not by imposing our notion of development; that kind of development normally serves only to enlarge the already saturated markets of the industrialized world.

In countries as France, Sweden and Germany free software is getting a very important and unstoppable advance, the "cascade motivation" to promote that the states in the 3rd world assume the responsibility to use free software has created a big worry to monopolies.
I believe that its necessary that the states, specially in the 3rd world countries, because there's also a difference between them, because in the first world countries there's a good and equal distribution of resources in the third world ones there's a concentration of them.

But the British in 1750 did not call themselves "undeveloped" or "backward," because they were not in a position to compare the conditions of their country with those of countries in which economic conditions were more satisfactory.
Many of these countries call themselves "developing countries" and, as such, are asking for aid from the so-called developed or even overdeveloped countries.
The standard of living is lower in the so-called developing countries because the average earnings for the same type of labor is lower in those countries than it is in some countries of Western Europe, Canada, Japan, and especially in the United States.

Countries with smaller arsenals, would disagree because a set number for removal wouldn’t remove the same percentage of each countries arsenal.

Another solid point is that a country will begin to care about economic inequality as this party begins to gain more political influence which in turn creates an environment of peace.
This theory also entails that this country would have a solid electoral system and that economic inequality would be controlled through this system.
