The Traps Facing the Bottom Billion was a very intriguing essay. Being a continuation or a more in-depth look at the Bottom Billions essay I found that the traps that these undeveloped countries get into is terrible. landlocked countries getting the shortest end of the sick. I looked into this phenomena a little more and found that these countries truly have no better alternative than what is happening now with there current structure and resources. Situations like this beg the questions of what to next? how to change the flow of money? how to offer better services for its people? I agree with colliers idea that these countries should not have been countries in the first place. but the bed has already been made and now these countries have to find a way out.
