Whats the difference between an ledc and a medc country?
In general, LEDCs are non-industrial nations. They tend not to have a base of manufacturing industries and residents are less economically advantaged (i.e. poor). Another term for LEDCs is Third World nations. The majority of the world outside of Europe, the United States, Canada, South Africa, Israel, Japan and the former Soviet Block nations fall under this designation. MEDCs are industrialised nations with large scale industry and a high gross-domestic-product rating. Citizens of these countries are usually economically well off with a small chance of starvation. They are also referred to as First World nations. They include all of the nations listed above with the exception of the Soviet Block nations which are known as Second World nations.

Asked in Ethics and Morality
Do the rich have a moral obligation to give to the poor?
It is always good to give to the poor, and yes I believe we have a moral obligation to do so. However, giving to the poor does not always mean giving money where when that money runs out, their circumstance of being poor remains. Giving to the poor - from my perspective - means also giving moral support, spiritual support, solutions, direction, realization of possible opportunities, helping them to establish overall goals and objectives, etc. In this way you change the heart, help change their circumstances, increase their self esteem, and give hope to those who feel there isn't any. It would depend entirely upon who dictates the morals. A person with unabashed selfishness like Ayn Rand would feel no moral obligation to the poor. Someone like Mother Theresa on the other hand, would feel that denying the poor of aid to be morally corrupt.
