The western world see developing countries as less because they havent reached the same standard as us.
What we can see now is that they are still developing and passing us on all things while we all the time point out that we are better overall.
While most of the western culture use things developed 5-50 years ago, developing countries use the same but also develop them further and pass us by far.
One of the things that makes this possible is the term that we are not developing, only reap the benefits of inventions made long ago without any further development.
Corporations making money on inventions made long ago that is not worth that much in developing countries that have it and is developing them further.
They cost less because the standard is not set.
Yes I am talking about globality.
This means that we have set a standard and are pleased with it while developing can have the same standard but are not pleased with it.
This will not stop even with a free market if the education we have is pleased with our standard and dont focus on developing new ideas.
My point is that pointing out the west world as the best standard is bad.
Making us the loser and the rest of the world the winner.
