economically, a huge number of scientists and engineers who have received
higher-level education in developed countries are gradually returning to their home
countries. One might ask whether developed nations would enjoy a comparative
superiority if there were no difference among countries’ quality of human capital
and if all nations were able to provide the same added value, even to their remote
regions. If Asian and African countries maintain their current growth rates, virtually
every nation in the world will become a middle-income country sometime during
the first half of this century. The importance of aid to developing countries based on
two-nation discussions (as traditionally conducted) is sure to decline significantly.
Global poverty will continue but will transform from an international problem into a
domestic one. Aid must target not countries but, rather, diverse agents
multi-nationally and cross-nationally. How will the resolution of poverty contribute
to markets? It goes without saying that social businesses in “Ka-Ki-Ku-Ke-Ko”
fields play an important role in the resolution of such domestic poverty issues.
