I don't know about that. I think I would greatly prefer to live in the part of Africa shown in the picture, than in say Manhattan or Los Angeles.

As for making the world poorer, how about a world in which a person can travel from Shanghai to Tahiti to Timbuktoo and find the same shops and goods - from fast food to high-end designer clothing - as in his nearest urban center? Seems pretty impoverished to me - the more so as the goods and culture seem to be reduced to the lowest common denominator.
