Sorry, Mr. Pottymouth, but you're wrong. What people need is the protection of private property rights. Without that, time preferences are skewed higher, and capital does not accumulate. All the education in the world is worthless without capital.

It's up to the people living in these poor regions to make private property a high priority, so that capital accumulation is possible. As long as they don't, they'll be stuck in their third-world hell.
