developed countries

Many developed countries, where governments always pay attention to the livelihoods of its people, very different from the country known for its corrupt. They only enrich themselves, while the people who need attention and assistance can only lament the fate of those who are far from affluent I feel, if we look still much poverty that plagued our beloved nation, Indonesia ,but,why is still a lot of people are starving, beggars in the street, and children who can not attend school, because of economic limitation. where government policy, and what it is in say Indonesia has been developed? while there are still many people who lament under poverty. How do you think...

The government here sometimes give too much assistance to people, some (not all) choose to stay on welfare rather than work because they get their rent paid and other funding from the state, which is more than they can earn in a minimum wage job, so there is a downside to the state providing this, they can and do create large numbers of people who become totally dependent on the government (and who will vote for them so that they keep those payments coming in), who take the money from productive working people to pay for the dependent ones, this type of government spending has gotten so bad here, that the economy has collapsed.....(yes the bankers helped to collapse it also).

How can the government do such a think. not so the people instead of prosperous but will be on overload again with the debt of the country. major taxes and so forth, then how do you address this. what will happen during such a bang so that the state will incur a loss.

Hi Sunardi the result of this behaviour is plain to see, the entire transatlantic region, in all the countries which have indulged these unsustainable economic practices, is undergoing a breakdown collapse, with civil unrest happening in Greece, Spain, Italy, UK and USA when the state benefits are cut to the overly dependent individuals. Things will only start to get better when the banks are restructured/regulated and people actually start to become productive in the physical economy but how you change the dependency attitudes is a problem they are all struggling with today.....

In your opinion, what kind of country said developing and developed countries ? I knew that developed countries are countries that are far from the economic crisis. As developing countries, Indonesia should pay more attention to the people whose economy is very weak. Like we see, a lot of children who have dropped out from school due to the ability in financial problem, unemployment. The situation was quite alarming. Then, what would you think ?

Poverty is one of the problem that is plaguing third world countries which are mainly countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia. most of Europe and north america including Australia,japan, New Zealand are doing fine with a vibrant economy. however Africa is one of the worst. Our leader are so determine to steal the money in the nations treasury. They are so deep inside corruption. I think Indonesia is far better than most Africa countries when it comes to economic growth and development. your leader are trying compared to most African countries. Take for example, President Robert Mugabe he is so hell-bent on holding on to power after occupying that exalted sit since Zimbabwe gained independence from Britain in the 1980's. Mugabe is not even ashamed of the suffering he has placed most of his countries national. The Zimbabwe dollars is worth less in the international market.

I think that the characteristic of underdeveloped and developing countries are the leaders of those countries do not have a good conscience. In fact, corruption is very fundamental issue in every country I mentioned. The second, law enforcement in the corrupt countries could hardly touch the perpetrator of corruption. Why, the leaders may come from very poor even poorer, so once there is a chance, they use their power to profit maximization. I think also one's background can cause someone to change the attitude and mentality. Then, honesty become issues that need to be upheld. surely we do not want our country led by people who can not be honest at ourselves primarily on others.
