Hi, do you think that the verb "lack" means to need or it means there is not enough, e.g.
The arrival of foreign banks means more oppurtinities for low-in come countries, which might otherwise lack banking options."
And what does it mean "low-in come" countries? thanks
this article I've already read, but what does it lack means, makes them not so strong, right?
"low-income countries" means countries where the income (earnings) of
people is low
So, this sentence is saying that the arrival of foreign banks creates/provides
more opportunities for countries where the incomes are low. Otherwise
(if the foreign banks did not come in), there may be no, or not enough
Hope this helps.
