Great! So we’ve identified some cultural reasons why some teams might be more successful as it relates to baseball. So now let’s do the same thing with your original statement, which was regarding poverty.OK, let's stay in Latin America.
In the major leagues there is a very high disproportionately number of baseball players from the Dominican Republic. The numbers are much higher than expected. It turns out that Dominicans have baseball fever. Baseball is a passion in the DR. By the same token Argentinians are passionate about soccer rather than baseball. I have never seen an Argentinian baseball player. I know they must exist, but i have never seen one.
BTW, baseball is also huge in Cuba. However, they do not have the same freedom to come to America when compared to the Dominicans.
Which cultural idiosyncrasies lead one ethnicity to be in poverty while another is more financially successful?The reasons for poverty in all groups are the same. However some groups are more successful than others.
