Having travelled to some of the most developed countries in the world and the most undeveloped countries in the world, I can say at first glance it certainly looks like the western world has a better standard of living, but then again I have to tell you that back in 1980 I travelled to Jakarta (Indonesia) and then onto Los Angeles (US), and what really shocked me was that I found more beggars on the streets of Los Angeles than on the streets of Jakarta.
So what are we to make of that? Is life really better for the western countries? Costs are higher, regulations are strict.
What do you think?
Is life really easier for people in the western world or more difficult?
