WHY ARE PEOPLE SO POOR IN RESOURCE “RICH” COMPANIES?
A TALK BY TERRY LYNN KARL
There’s never been more wealth – and never more economically desperate and disenfranchised people.
What’s going on?
The countries that seem to be hit the hardest are countries with massive mineral and oil wealth.
It’s a paradox. They have all the money in the world and it turns out to be more of a curse than a blessing.
This is a bit of an academic talk – therefore a little dry – but the ideas are worth our attention and thought.
