Re: Should Poor Countries Build New Capital Cities

Can you contextualize the reasons for those changes?
Here's my guess.
It seems that these countries are desperately poor lands that do not have a new capital among the top of their needs lists. If I had to guess, these cities were built first so that the ruling classes would not have to put up with a teeming, crowded city such as Rio. Also, the cities, I believe, are major ego trips for the ruling classes.
