Thought of the day

I’m just finishing up a paper for my Global Health/Haiti course and I thought I would think outside the box a little for the final. We have to propose some sort of health initiative and, in part, relate it to one of the Millennium Development Goals. Since the biggest issue underlying any problem in any developing nation not in a religious war (see Nigeria) is poverty (also a problem in Nigeria), I decided to address things from that angle: Build a highway system. I have some very good examples of countries which have done this to great success: The Roman Empire, Germany, the United States, and, currently, China.
