If the World's Poor Has Money There'd be Billions New Customers

    There is a theory in development economics that the best thing the West could do to improve its own economy would be to create a world where the four billion struggling to survive had disposable income -- companies thrive on customers; an extra four billon potential customers could only help Western companies...

    ... heck even an extra billion could help Western companies.

    This is a theory that is being seriously discussed, and it has some merit, right...? I mean, people everywhere need more or less the same things: combs and brushes, batteries, clothes, telephones, computers, pens, paper, bicycles, buckets, cups, plates.........etc, etc...

    Absolutely. I live in SE Asia and there are so many poor people here living in a shack we wouldn’t put our dogs in. Some have a few nice possessions they are proud of. I have no doubt if they had the means that they could help out the economy.
