What do third world countries do better than most first world countries?
Efficiency in everyday things, in third world countries if you pay for something it gets taken care of very fast. No paperwork, no stupid regulations and often people working all days of the week. To give you an example: delivering a refrigerator in Cambodia: I pay for it at the store, the saleslady calls her driver, and old man shows up on a barely functioning motorbike 1 minute later, he incredibly manages to put the refrigerator on the back of it and delivers it to my home within 10 minutes running a bunch of red lights as it's the norm there. He's too old to bring it up the stairs though so I give him a dollar as a tip, he thanks me and leaves, then I just ask my friendly local tuk tuk driver to help me, we take it up and I give him a dollar for which he thanks me. Delivery done. Total cost 2 dollars, total time 15 minutes.
