Rich is education...expertise...technology.
Rich is knowing.
We have money, yes.
But we are not rich.
We are like the children who inherit money from the father they never knew.
They have not been brought up to spend it.
They have it in their hands; they don't know how to use it.
If you don't know how to spend money, you are not rich.
We are not rich.
Without this knowledge, this understanding, we are nothing.
We import everything.
The bricks to make houses, we import.
The men who build them, we import.
You go to the market, what is there that is made by us? Nothing.
It is Chinese, German, Italian ...it is not ours.
Is a country rich that cannot make a brick, or a motorcar, or a book?
It is not rich, I think.
