The resource curse is when imperialist pigs or crony capitalists or whatever you want to call them go to a third world nation we're developing Nation or do you want to call it exploit the resources of that country and I only pay off corrupt officials even the people should  have benefit from the  resources

In those "developing nations" the governments claim to own all the resources, so the are "pre-stolen" and the people of those countries are already being exploited by their own governments, which is a big reason they have been "developing countries" for generations, a lack of individual property rights.

Sure, you'll love it!

It's "Clue" as if it were written by Mises. 

*SPOILER ALERT* 

The butler did it!  ("It" being learned a new trade in response to smart house technology)
  

Snarky no more!

I totally agree.

It bothers me though.

However, it's not as bad as you think.

Most such countries are doing well and get better government now.
