  1. Infrastructure in poor countries only gets built so that rich countries can exploit their natural resources . Usually with massive bank loans that put the country into inescapable debt which ends up with having to give their resources to the bankers.

  2. Which is good. More highway = more loggers = more tropical rainforest destroy

    The poorer that country, the happier other countries. If congo turn into industrial economy, say goodbye to the forest

    People will downvote me and make an example of Finlandia that can be wealthy and have lots of forest. But no. Every rich countries already passed their time to destroy forest, but they did that in some point in the past
