fanocks, thanks for posting that link!
It is really impossible to be poor as long as your mind says that you're rich - and the other way round unfortunately.
Would you agree with: "The wealthier a country the poorer the people."?
Let me explain that:
In wealthy countries there are a lot of people with secure jobs that deliver them a constant income which people usually carry to the next bank.
Neither do they take any risk nor do they search any opportunities.
Whereas in broke countries there simply aren't enough good jobs that could deliver security of some sort. Therefore people are forced to risk a lot and search for opportunities - in order to survive.
So far my theories
