Correct-Answer to Question #38:
Why do rich countries get richer, and poor ones poorer?




Q.   Why do rich countries get richer, and poor ones poorer?

A.   Countries contain different levels of value-assets, collectively called Infocap, which determine their futures.

Q.   What are examples of Infocap?
A.   Information and capital are important, also infrastructure, education levels, and legal and political systems, but many other types of Infocap may also be critical.

Q.   Where is there more detail on Infocap?
A.   You can look at "The Substance Of Society : Infocap [MT102]" for more.

Q.   How do Infocap levels affect the prosperity of a country?
A.   Infocap generates of itself a dividend of around 5%, which goes into a country's Infocap Cache. The country maintains itself by withdrawing from this Cache.

Q.   And the original question?
A.   Rich countries have bigger Caches, so their withdrawals may be less than 5%. Poor countries tend to withdraw more, to meet basic needs, so their Caches shrink.

Q.   Where is there more explanation of this?
