Gun, Germ, and Steel: Causes of Inequality in the World
According to Jared Diamond, what are the three major elements that separate the world's "haves" from the "have nots?"
An interesting fact is that people have been living in the current New Guinea for over 40,000 years, much longer than on the North and South American continents. Until now, they remain poor compared to the rest of the world (Diamond). Based on this, it would be expected that people in New Guinea would have cargo competing in quality and quantity with the Western World. However, the gap between the Western World and places like New Guinea have continued to differ in terms of development.
