Not just farmers, laborers cant find work since you'll have Western missionaries go there and build facilities for free.

In the interest of good will, we've kicked the feet out from under the economy of these countries; rendering two of the most basic jobs and all their supporting jobs as unnecessary.

True that. Also, I heard that our dumpsters full of clothes that we send there killed off what fabric industry they had going. It's like unfair free trade to the nth degree.

Oh yeah it mushrooms out in so many ways. When farmers don't raise crops, then retailers don't have any food to sell. So you get empty stores that can't pay rent, so they get evicted. Then landlords can't pay their mortgages so they go belly up. So you get vacant properties that turn into slums and shitholes. All this because we want to send boatloads of free food and pat ourselves on the back while accumulating social justice warrior brownie points.

Economies have to form naturally, you can't shoehorn them into existence just because you want to help the brown skinned people.
