There are serious problems in many countries around the world due to being shut out by the larger national economies. It seems that if we tried to create more connections to all countries, then we might be able to reduce suffering in these countries. I understand that all countries have some percentage of the population that are in poverty. Of course, poverty in different countries means different things. I disagree with the idea that I shouldn't help someone from another country because people from my country are suffering. If America, for example, took diplomatic steps to help other countries with large amounts of suffering wouldn't this stablize both countries by cementing a working relationship?
