Isn’t it a common perception among people that poverty is caused by a lack of resources? Think about it. We see a beggar in the street, and what do we think? We think that he or she doesn’t have enough money to dress well, to eat… to live. We talk about development in poor countries and, what do we think? Well, that some countries don’t have enough resources to achieve the levels of development that they should have. In fact, a lot of initiatives that aim to promote development are related to increasing funding.
