        In "How Rich Countries Got Rich and Why Poor Countries Stay Poor," Erik Reinert resuscitates and refines the infant-industry argument for developing countries' protecting their industries. Rather than just accept what a poor country is (relatively) good at doing--often mining or subsistence agriculture--the nation should choose among activities Reviews:   The idea that rich countries — or any countries — need poor people is one of the greatest, most obsolete myths of this century. I dare to think these day, that in the end, the answer to this great question — “what is the best way that we know to build a working society, anyways?” might be, like most such answers, outrageously more.

      Differences Between The Rich And The Poor 1. The Rich Dreams, Plans and Implements While The Poor Only Dreams. Procrastination is the ideal word to describe this sub-title.

Year: No. of pages: (Sale of this edition of the book is restricted to South East Asia.). Book review: ‘ How rich countries got rich, and why poor countries stay poor ‘, by Erik Reinert.

There are two main schools of economic thought, capitalism and marxism, and we all know which one dominates the world today. What is less known is the divisions within capitalism, that there are two main ‘canons’ of literature. Very important book on the policies really implemented by rich countries to develop, as opposed to what mainstream economic theories advocate today.

An annoying drawback: too repetitive, saying the same key ideas over and over again differently formulated/5. In poor countries, the rich and powerful crush the poor and powerless.

Think of a poor farmer in Haiti or the Congo today or medieval Europe. After the Arab spring Families coming apart are one of the major social issues. A lot of families got separated because of the contradictory political concepts. For instance, a famous family in Yemen, one of the effected countries, Should rich countries help the poor countries.

There is so much debate surrounding the issue of rich countries.

Reinert's new book ("How rich countries got rich and why poor countries stay poor", London, Constable & Robinson ) is so important.

As evident from his title, Reinert asks the most fundamental questions about economic development, and proceeds to answer them with clear logic, a sweeping grasp of. In this refreshingly revisionist history, Erik Reinert shows how rich countries developed through a combination of government intervention, protectionism, and strategic investment, rather than through free trade.

Reinert suggests that this set of policies in various combinations has driven successful development from Renaissance Italy to the modern Far East.3/5(2). But with a book called “A Farewell to Alms,” Paul wanted to know what all this economic history means for the future: how should rich countries be helping poor ones, and is there really any.

But the high inequality seen today in poor countries is prompting new theories. One emphasises outsourcing—when rich countries shift parts of the production process to poor countries. Why are some nations rich and others poor.

In a new book called Why Nations Fail, a pair of economists argue that a lot comes down to politics. To research the book, the authors scoured the world for populations and geographic areas that are identical in all respects save one: they’re on different sides of a border.

Some countries are rich and others are poor because the richer countries often have control over valuable resources like cotton and spices that will benefit and further advanced their civilization. In the Indian Ocean trade, China have possession over goods like Champa rice that help feed the citizens leading to the invention of compass that.

A maverick economist explains how protectionism makes nations rich, free trade keeps them poor—and how rich countries make sure to keep it that way. Throughout history, some combination of government intervention, protectionism, and strategic investment has driven successful development everywhere from Renaissance Italy to the modern Far East.

Poor countries often have citizens who are clamoring for anarchy, who want change and for their corrupt governments to end.

If, you try to survey and identify the most corrupt countries in the world then most of them are considered to be poor countries. Lastly, life expectancy is also an index for a country to be regarded as either rich or poor. The Real Reason for the Growing Gap Between Rich and Poor.

His Beyond Outrage is now out in paperback. 24/7 Wall St. analyzed data involving 42 countries from the OECD to identify the those with the widest gaps between the rich and the poor. "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer" is an aphorism due to Percy Bysshe A Defence of Poetry (, not published until ) Shelley remarked that the promoters of utility had exemplified the saying, "To him that hath, more shall be given; and from him that hath not, the little that he hath shall be taken away." The rich have become richer, and the poor have become poorer.

The report especially highlight that the gap between rich and poor has been growing more quickly than the gap that has widened over the past 12 years. A global gap between rich countries and poor countries is more serious than ever.

Erik Reinert, the author of a book titled "How rich countries got rich. That’s the biggest political economic event of our lifetimes: the unprecedented fall of a rich country, once the world’s richest, to become a poor one.
