Manufacturing Poor People That the majority of the world's people are poor is not an accident. It is a very deliberately designed plan to keep the "First", or Western, World's foot on the neck of the "Third" World in order to take everyone's piece of the cake and serve it up to the very few on the tippy top of the economic pyramid. And it's disgusting.
