Why Richer Countries Are Essential To The Global Future

Today we’ve reflected a little on the phrase ‘First World Problems’, something that’s caught on quickly in a connected world where anyone can communicate about the most trivial of happenings. After learning of somebody’s cold house and tepid morning shower making the most of yesterday’s hot water, we thought we’d look into how our reliance on luxuries fits into the context of the wider world. Could it be that a boiler breakdown really is newsworthy enough to tell anyone that will listen? Probably not. But it didn’t stop us writing about it!

It’s a useful reminder of our responsibilities to those less fortunate, and the obligation we should all feel to those that don’t benefit from a roof over their heads.
