Should wealthy nations be required to share their wealth among poorer nations by providing such things as food and education? Or is it the responsibility of the government of poorer nations to look after their citizens themselves?

While the world is going so fast, a lot of countries, however, are still inefficient to follow this global trend. While citizens in developed countries have high standard of living, people in poor nations still suffer from the terrible and bad economic conditions as well as the quality of life. Thus, in my view, I strongly believe that the wealthy countries should take some responsibility to share parts of their wealth to those poorer nations.

The first reason is that the world economic imbalance can lead to many global problems. As you may know, many problems occur from the different in economic conditions. Hardship and hungriness allow people to begin doing illegal activities. For example, in Somalia, one of the poorest countries of the world, the Somalia’s citizens turn themselves to the pirate and start attack the commercial ships which come nearby. They claim that they are better off from being the thief. This is a big obstacle to the world trade activities. Thus, to make them have a sufficient resource to live in daily life without being the pirate, I believe that sharing is one of the possible solutions to reduce such problem.

Moreover, while sharing parts of the resource might cost a little to one country, it might help number of people in one country. Consider this simple example: as we know, the value of one currency differs from other currencies, so, cost of one particular meal in one country could differ from one country. To contrast, one comparable lunch-meal in Thailand might cost $1 per person, while it might costs $5 in USA. Thus, sharing parts of wealthy country’s resources can help a lot of people than we expected, and not cost too much

However, the governments of the poorer nations should mainly take the responsibility to look after their people. They should find ways to improve their economic well-being as well as standard of living of the citizens. They should not expect to be shared things from others forever; instead, they should find the way to enhance the quality of life of inhabitants rapidly.

In short, although wealthy nations should be required to share parts of their resources, such as food and education, among poorer countries, I suggest that the main task should be taken by the governments of the poorer country.
