hunters issues!
the mbuti people seem not to have any serious problems, since they rely on everything around them, and all they need is in their forests, which is also everywhere around them.
the mbuti people would more then likely be able to survive since they don't really know what the technology in our country is capable of today. they've never even heard of any of it, so they aren't setting their standards to that.
if the mbuti people start to depend on the money that they would get from their government, then they may not survive in the 21st century, since their GDP per capita income is only between 200$-6,000$. that could maybe get them through a few months, then they would have nothing left! popular culture! VISIT?! Tyler!
No, I would not like to visit this country. My main reason is that they are and underdeveloped country so I would have to get used to the whole new life. Another reason is that if I was in the Mbuti tribe, one of the native tribes, I would have to learn how to live in the forests and learn how to build a house.
carrie!
no, i would not like to visit this underdeveloped country. my reasoning for this is because it is an underdeveloped country and i would have to learn new things to survive. i'm not that much of a hunter, so i wouldn't be able to get food like they do, and also i'm not much of a builder so i wouldn't want to build my own house. i dob't think i would be able to adjust to the habitat they live in. government! cameroon - rebublic government.
central african rebuplic - republic government.
chad - multiparty republic government.
congo - republic government.
equitorial guinea - multiparty republic government.
gabon - multiparty presidential republic government.
sao tome and principe - multiparty republic government.
congo, zaire. (d. r. o.) - dictatorship government. none of the government in central africa seems to be effective. every single one of the countries there have either a low GDP per capita income, a low life expectancy, or both. all of the countries there are underdeveloped, but people seem to be living fine. the government seems to not be effective on the adults and people. www.grolieronline.com
