It is an important thing to remember that countries can be rich or poor for all types of reasons, and the wealth or poverty of a country is never dependent on the worth or even hard work of the people in the nation. Factors such as what types of natural resources have been discovered and traded is a factor. How long the country has been a nation is also a factor. The leadership of the country and how the government works is another important factor. The amount the people are allowed to own businesses, employ others, and use their natural gifts and resources all play a role in this.
If you have been blessed to be born into a nation that is already rich, be grateful! Get involved in getting the right people in office who will continue on with making the nation you are part of wealthier.

What can and should be done is giving of help and hope for those who are not as blessed as you/us.
