Países ricos y países pobres,
(in Spanish), In an op-ed article in El Nuevo Dia, Enrique Vázquez Quintana explains (my translation):
When one studies the personal attitudes of the people in rich countries, you find that most of them abide by these rules: . . .
morality as a basic principle, order and cleanliness, integrity, punctuality, responsibility (i.e., personal accountability), the wish for betterment, the respect for law and the rule of law, the respect for the rights of others, their love of and dedication to their work, and their efforts towards saving and commitment (to a goal).
Dr. Vázquez has it right.
