Title: Trinidad third world status

Comments: The term 'Third World' is used less often at least in the developed world. These days non-developed nations are often referred to as 'Developing nations' or 'emerging nations-economies' Whatever the classification, a long classification among political scientists states that: A 'third world' and now 'developing nation' mentality include but is not limited to a state whereby the population are often preoccuped with what is Wrong with their country and Not what can be done to fix it. You see this in many regions of the world where the population rises up to remove a leader and when success is achieved, there is great celebration only to be faced with the reality that Political success does NOT equal economic prosperity. This is turn results within short time to attempt to then remove the newly elected with yet another and the cycle continues.

Other factors includes a cycle of poverty: poor people make children into poverty who in turn make children who are also stuck in poverty and the cycles continue.
It is my opinion that Trinidad is NOT a third world country and is best stated as a developing nation.

The issues of a lack of understanding of environmental impact for waste disposal is clearly lacking. A strong dependence that the Government can fix all problems and generally a Top down economy with too much dependence on Oil revenues all contribute to many of the issues facing Trinidad. Trinidad is very small and has great natural resources and a good level of literacy the challenge is to harness all the nations resources for the betterment of its people. Unfortunately this is hampered by politics.

T&T is currently a third world country because it's not just the environment in a mess but a lot of the people here have reckless behavior to a lot of things. How can Trinidad and Tobago can develop if the people are not going to make an effort to make that happen? If they continue to not care then the simple result is that this island is not going anywhere.

The casual way Trinis react to serious issues make us really backward. We should be protesting the streets about crime, high prices and injustice among the people.

Third world phase comes from the fact that there isn't a good work ethic and so long as there is no work ethic there will be no good service, infrastructure, education, etc.

Title: Third world status

Comments: We had all the opportunities to climb out of the classification as a third world status during the seventies when the country was booming. Instead of stealing squandering and wasting our income, politicians should have made sure that we were advancing to a higher status.

They could have eliminated poverty, build better recreation facilities, improve our medical facilities and welfare systems to match those of many advanced societies.

They could have improved our roads with better pavements and lighting instead of trying to build a road structure that resembles a concrete jungle. Moreover, they could have introduced better portable water supplies eliminate outside latrines introduced more diversification, more trade training and opportunities for our upcoming generations.

Finally, they could have made sure that some form of legislation was in place to encourage racial integration and that senior positions in our police ad security system were equally racially divided thus avoiding the racial division that now exists in our politics.and government departments.

It is now too late to escape us being branded as a third world country, and with the depletion of our oil and gas resources, it looks like we will always be now labelled still as a struggling developing third word nation.
