So one day there will suddenly be no third world anymore?


Assuming that these countries keep reforming, instilling property rights, crack down on corruption, ensure that the justice system is untained by political interference and corruption - yes it is possible. But given the number of clueless westerners hell bent on resurrecting socialism (but those individuals not having the slightest clue about economics to begin with) - I wouldn't be surprised if we see yet another experimentation with socialism in the third world.

I'm afraid you don't know what you are talking about here. Your view is twisted by western propaganda. The free market and all that shit won't magically solve poverty, on the contrary, it is much more likely to make the problem bigger.

Again, a rude reply from a person too cowardly to put their nation of residence on the profile - why aren't I surprised.

Pleas tell me - what is the solution to poverty? because apparently YOU have appointed yourself as having ALL the answers through your snarky and rude reply.
