Colonialism and its effect on Africa: In order to discuss colonialism it is necessary to define what colonialism is, according to dictionary.com: “colonialism is the control or governing influence of a nation over a dependant country, territory or group”. The main exploration countries, mainly: Spain, Britain, Portugal and the Netherlands, colonised numerous other countries in their travels and for the expansion of their nations (Cameron, 1993). A major aspect of income for the colonialists was slavery, the colonialists took only citizens of economic value as slaves. This left Africa with less citizens of working age and caused an influx of slave labour in European countries.

Frederick Ezekiel R. Pasco – 11503505 A61 “Undeniable Truth: The Global Implications of Colonialism” European colonialism had a “wider coverage than other colonialisms” and as such, it takes into consideration the amount of influence that it dealt to the rest of the world. With the beginnings of capitalism in Europe due to the industrial revolution and with the help of colonialism as the medium of spreading the ideologies which greatly influenced the world “we” live in today.

Abstract Globalization infrastructure Global information systems infrastructure is becoming one of the important strategies for any company plans to achieve the success in the business market. For example, a famous successful business such as Amazon website, which designed in the U.S. has to ensure that their computer hardware, software, electronics, connecting to the internet, communications technology, e-commerce and all kinds of e-services are appropriate for international customers.

I believe that globalisation has changed the nature and scope of cultural and economic power more than it has the nature and scope of political power. Lukes defines power as having “three faces” – decision-making power, nondecision-making power and idealogical power over political agendas, and that if one party has power over another, they are able to influence that party to do something they would otherwise not do (Lukes, 2004.) Scholte defines globalisation as internationalization (a “growth of transactions and interdependence between countries”), liberalization (“a process of removing officially imposed restrictions on movements of resources between countries in order to form an ‘open’ and ‘borderless’ world economy”), universalization
Globalization involves the increasing interconnection of local and nationalistic economies across the world. It increases border movement of goods, people, technologies, ideas and services throughout the world. It lets other countries to join the rest of the world and become part of worldwide interrelatedness. As the biggest companies are no longer national firms but universal partnership. In my opinion, globalization is an important issue, as it allows countries to collaborate politically, socially and economically.

Agriculture developed by cultivating cereal crops such as wheat and barley, as well as domesticating and farming animals. With advancement of agriculture, people invented new technology such as the plough and stone tools for hunting and skinning of animals, which improved the productivity of the land.

Globalization has a huge impact to nearly every aspect of life in this modern era. Globalization refers to the movement towards a borderless world and the interdependence of global economies. In other words, we can consider globalization as an economic integration of the world through the greater trading, investments, marketing demands and the dispersion of technologies.
