Slave labor was no more beneficial to the South than it is to any other country which is using it today (all of which are third world). We would all be much better off it slavery had never existed (i.e., blacks had not sold their rivals into slavery and the British had not brought them to their new colony) and all Southern plantation owners had used hired help, as many of them did. And by the way, America was built by entrepreneurs - unskilled labor could have come from anywhere in the world and it would have made no difference.
