Not when they go into descriptions and their reasons why Miami is an absolute turd world city, and on top of that its cynical views.

Poverty doesnt mean jack = Poverty doesnt equal to third world which was the point of the posts and the whole argument. I meant pointing out poverty didnt mean Miami was 3rd World. Got it?
the only thing that makes a place third world is poverty and miami is one of the us's poorest cities, is that arguable? no, not really.

Ahh yes, and there is plenty of sunshine and beaches near Port-Au-Prince! You know that tropical regions are always poorer than temperate ones on average. The most civilized part of the world, Scandinavia, is not in the tropics.

Is that a scientific study or just something you pulled out of thin air?

There was a worldwide ranking of the most and least civilized regions, and it showed this to be the case. I have to look for the link if it is online.

Poverty is not the only thing ,it is not having a middle -class that makes a country a third-world nation along with unskilled labor and a corrupt government along with other factors.

Miami is not a third world country... its worse. I've been to rural villages in third world countries and I've found the people there to be much happier than your typical Miamian. They were poorer, to be sure, but they sure seemed to enjoy life more.

Hot year round weather and diversity drive disparity higher. Northern temperate cultures sure aren't as exciting or exotic as the tropical climes, but there sure are a lot more 'happy' or 'content' people there. The same is true for homogeneous cultures as well ie Japan, Denmark, Iceland.
