So I was just surfing the web during my downtime and the internet being a rabbit hole that it is, I realized I got to this page....  http://www.scienceagogo.com/news/20010817233944data_trunc_sys.shtml

Having read Guns, Germs and Steel before (as well as watching the documentary on Youtube), I was really surprised that the difference can be attributed to simple things like frost.

This got me thinking, if you believe the poor countries are already locked in to their fate by the cards dealt them, does this mean they are blameless for their current situation? Did colonialism really messed them up or it simply exacerbated an existing problem? And how can poor countries overcome the challenges to becoming 1st-World?

I believe rich countries are rich because they got good government that are able to have the foresight for the country future development like attracting companies to set up in the country improving the economy and the employment rate..... As there is a saying rich become richer poor become poorer.... i guess some government might be corrupted and lead to the country being poorer and poorer
