hmm, pretty full of errors. It wasn't colonialism that caused the wealth disparity (although it didn't really help) it was industrialization. The loans also haven't been paid off many times over, complete lack of economic understanding there. WTO rules also completely ignores the flow of wealth in the opposite direction, as well as the use of patents provided by more wealthy countries (ex. Indian generic pharma industry). Not to mention the fact that the disparity in wealth is generally greater in these countries anyway. 4 of the richest 10 in the world live in these 'undeveloped' countries. This video might have been accurate 20-30 years ago.

Wealth inequality - these words suggest that wealth is a human right? It isn't. Since we are changing the rules, lets change the rules of football so the team with the worst players wins.
