Of course, the use of the Internet isn't the only way to defeat poverty. And the Internet is not the only tool we have. But it has enormous potential.

当然,使用互联网不是唯一抵抗贫困的方法. 而且互联网也不是我们所拥有的唯一的工具.但是它却具有巨大的潜力.


To take advantage of this tool, some impoverished countries will have to get over their outdated anti-colonial prejudices with respect to foreign investment. Countries that still think foreign investment is an invasion of their sovereignty might well study the history of  infrastructure (the basic structural foundations of a society) in the United States. When the United States built its industrial infrastructure, it didn't have the capital to do so. And that is why America's Second Wave infrastructure — including roads, harbors,highways, ports and so on — were built with foreign investment. The English,the Germans, the Dutch and the French were investing inBritain's former colony. They financed them. Immigrant Americans built them. Guess who owns them now? The Americans. I believe the same thing would be true in places like Brazil or anywhere else for that matter. The more foreign capital you have helping you build your Third Wave infrastructure, which today is an electronic infrastructure, the better off you're going to be. That doesn't mean lying down and becoming fooled, or letting foreign corporations run uncontrolled. But it does mean recognizing how important they can be in building the energy and telecom infrastructures needed to take full advantage of the Internet..

为了利用好这个工具,在关于外国投资的问题上一些贫穷的国家必须克服他们过去反殖民的偏见。那些仍然认为外国投资是侵犯他们国家主权的国家可能要去研究下美国基础公共设施的历史。当美国建立起工业设施的时候,它还没有资本这么去做。那也是为什么美国第二次基础设施浪潮是利用外资建立起来的---包括公路,港口,高速公路,飞机场等等。英格兰,德国,荷兰还有法国都投资给英国早先的殖民地,他们给予那些殖民地经济支持。而移民到美国的人建立了那些设施。猜猜现在谁拥有它们? 美国人。我相信同样的一件事将在某些地方如巴西或其他地方会是事实的(这句话翻的漏了,但是又不知道怎么加进去…….)你拥有越多的外资来帮助你建设第三基础设施浪潮, 即如今的电力设施,你的发展会越来越好。那并不是意味着屈服和变得愚蠢, 或者是让外国公司变得无法控制。但是那意味着认识到外国公司在建立能源和电信设施时的重要性,而这些设施是充分利用互联网所需要的。
