In that previous article, I talked about how the world was not entirely flat and how some part of it were spiked compared to others : especially in high education. Today I will talk about another part of that descrepancy, and how it affects a tremendous number of countries.
Because this spikiness touches also other areas, and generates sometimes a vicious circle. Even though the goal for developing countries is obviously to develop their economy, meaning that they have a ground ready for long time investments, their development is still slow. Investors do not seem to understand the importance of investing in such countries, for example, a few days ago Facebook has entered the heart of the capitalist world by doing its IPO (Initial Public Offering) ; before Facebook was invested by private companies and investors. Billions of dollars were invested in Facebook, maybe not as much as predicted, but it is still a huge amount of money ; and even though, as Marck Zuckerberg stated, this company did not need such money. But the U.S. Commerce Regulation “forced” Facebook to do so in order to clarify its status.
However, all that investment could have been spent on numerous project throughout the world,raising more companies from the ground and economically stimulate the global market, while giving nice, steady and safe ROI (Return On Investment). As Walter Lamberson wrote in his article : don’t pay for Facebook’s furnitures, pay for new markets.
