Hi Paolo I was being facetious of course. I didn't mean to start a philosophical debate:-} I just think there are other causes to poverty than the rich, or any particular outside cultural or racial group. I agree with you and Debbie to some extent about the disparity in wealth and poverty when traveling. When I travel to Mexico, we take the shuttle through neighborhoods where people live in shacks, on our way to a 5 star hotel. Mexico has just as abundant natural resources as it's neighbor, the US. Yet the average American has a wage 30 times that of the average Mexican. The rich in the US don't cause poverty, they alleviate it.
