Britain gained many benefits from being in the slave trade. The British government, for instance, took advantage of the slave trade and made an enormous amount of tax money from this trade. The tax money came from the profits that were made from British companies that sold goods such as tobacco, sugar, and coffee. These goods were produced on plantations in the West Indies using slavery. The government then used this tax money to fund the military, for instance.
Thus, this was a new form of capital. Chattel enhanced capital. Not only sugar but also silver and gold became important. Besides, according to Tignor&Adelman (2010), there was many gold and silver mines in America so gold and silver were moved by Europeans. This caused extraction and economically power for Europe and Europeans constituted colonies and this colonies provided wealth to their mother countries and thus, there was occured a new term; mercantilism.
After the Second World War, economic factors became more and more important in the world. Both developed and developing countries want to improve their economic development rapidly. After, the developed countries increase economy successfully by free trade; the developing countries started to follow their steps. From that time, global economy began to burgeon. Economic globalization provides many chance
Afterwards, Egypt replaced the barriers of importing to tariffs, so an in increase in private foreign investments resulted in an increase in the variety of consumer goods. One of Egypt’s main revenues is tourism, which is an effect of globalization. Globalization created the raising rate of working in private sector, which resulted of the raise of the rate of unemployment and underemployment, as there is a slow growth of cultivated lands compared to the growth of population. Industrial and agricultural investment rapidly declined, where as inequality increased significantly because globalization somehow helped
Globalization being the vital reason, it has helped the UAE economy to develop and remain stable(Davidson, 2005). We have noticed a massive transformation in the UAE from tribal culture, which was reliable on agriculture and fishing to a nation with world class infrastructure. The United Arab Emirates has made many efforts in order to globalize the nation since independence. Some
Introduction Have you ever thought how easy it is today to find things from all over the world and how fast can somebody communicate with others and travel whenever he wants? All of them these are easy, because globalization made it possible and opened the way for to many companies to take a step outside their own borders and local markets. This paper will explain the definition of Globalization and will try to point out the reasons behind its spread that globalization increases and the impact that globalization it has on the businesses and their operation strategies.

Introduction Common sense and economic theory argue that oil exploration activities have the potential to boost economic development as oil is the sources of primary export income necessary for economic and social-political development of many developing countries. Not only does oil exploration offer a source of foreign exchange earnings, the industry is an important source of income for people through direct and indirect employment. In Nigeria, the crude oil sector constitutes the mainstay of the economy accounting for about 80 per cent of government revenue, 40 per cent of gross domestic product and 4 per cent of employment (Nwaigwe, 2008, p 33). However, not all oil exploration has led to economic development as some of the poorest countries
At the same time, the number of people living in poverty has increased by almost 100 cubic million and the chasm between the rich and the poor has become unfathomable. Today, however, South Africa should be very appealing to potential foreign investors because the country wants Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), needs it and is amenable to it. Among other measures, Africa has passed new regulations promoting FDI in public and private partnerships. These include regulations that reduce tax rates and import tariffs, allow for easier exchange and repatriation of profits, and which address lagging productivity and the overall socio-economic difficulties of the black population. Taken together the government hopes its policies will reduce crime, which has risen to daunting levels, and increase overall social stability.
