In January I went to Nicaragua in Central America and have become very interested in Social justice. Southern countries are not the least productive. See where your clothes are made, where does your coffee come from? How about your bananas, strawberries, coconuts? Most of these come from southern ‘third-world’ countries. The reason they are so poor is because of explotation of wealthier nations. They are not unproductive but very productive. Our economy would be ruined if countries such as Nicaragua and Colombia did not exist.
