the richest people on earth

Mali: a gift economy

Mali, Africa is one of the poorest nations on earth, in materialistic terms….but their cultural belief is that by giving, you will also be given to and be taken care of…so hoarding of possessions is frowned upon, & people only keep what they need…they believe in constantly giving to their neighbors, with no immediate expectation of return….
