    Prevent them from looking...

    Hi there,

    I guess something is fishy here:

    "This can be a reason for the adminsitration of the US to prevent their most affluent country in the world from looking like a Third World country."

    Thank you!

    The quote seems wrong. It should probably be:
    the most affluent country in the world
