The difference between the poor and the rich countries

I got a forward on "The difference between the poor countries and the rich ones". It says that the difference is not due to natural resources, not due to age, not because of intellectual difference, not race or skin. But
The difference is due to the attitude of the people, framed along the years by the education & the culture.

This is a true fact. I personally have realized that such attitude is common among us. How many years is it going to take understand that "Destroying public property is our own loss", "We should not meddle with others business & life", "Competition is healthy and pulling legs is unhealthy"... there's really attitude problem with majority of people from self-chosen poor countries.

The forward also lists some basic principles followed by majority of rich/developed countries' people and minority of poor/undeveloped countries'.

1. Ethics, as a basic principle.
2. Integrity.
3. Responsibility.
4. Respect to the laws & rules.
5. Respect to the rights of other citizens.
6. Work loving.
7. Strive for saving & investment.
8. Will of super action.
9. Punctuality.

I can give examples of each of the points mentioned above on how we lack those. It's quite easy.

PS: I created an animated gif image of 17 slides of ppt that I received (for you guys to peek into) . Unfortunately when I uploaded in blogspot, it converted .gif to .png, hence losing animation feature. Is there any way to upload gif image intact or is this blogspot bug?
