Are the fundamental problems the same in alot of these countries or does each location have a unique issue which requires a unique solution?

For example, if the economy of these countries improved dramatically, would it also erradict problems such inequality or the effects of globalisation... Or are these issues caused by a problem that is specific to the country rather then poverty? For example events in their history.

I read Bottom Billion by Paul Collier which argues poverty is the main cause of conflict, inequality and political instability. Just wanted to hear what you guys think of this.
