Complete truth
Reap off the inequality blessed
13/12/2007

Recently, the World Bank (WB) has bewailed that “there are huge inequities in the world. Even better-off citizens in most of the developing world face worse opportunities than the poor in rich countries. The fact that the country of birth is a key determinant of people’s opportunities runs counter to our view of equity.” Whatever the WB thinks of equity, it is at best only half-true. A close scrutiny will clearly exemplify that inequality has helped less developed nations to achieve economic growth and prosperity. Had it not been for the fact of inequality of income and cost of living, none of the billions of dollars of investments that has been pouring in China and India for over a decade now would have come. It is because of the relative backwardness and the consequent low cost that inspired the Western world to outsource most of its IT related work and production to India. It not only has helped India climb up the ladder faster than otherwise but also allowed it the leeway of time and energy to learn from such technology and business models to develop its own version of multinational companies. All this, thanks to the sheer inequality that existed, and is still existing between the First and the Third World. After all, even water doesn’t flow from a waterfall unless there’s difference in altitude. Hail inequality at times.
