economic factors is shifted from the public sector to the private sector
2. Globalization Project: an alternative form of organizing economic growth with scale

3. Privatization: Privatization is when the government owned businesses or land, is
transferred over to be managed by private firms and corporations. This is often done to
increase efficiency of the business.
4. EPZs: export processing zones, these are zones that are typically set up by governments
and offer sort of incentives in the form of tax reduction and a few regulations on trade
which attract direct foreign investment
5. Colonization: Colonization is an ongoing process of control by which a central system of
power dominates the surrounding land and its components.
6. Debt Crisis: The debt crisis is the general term for a proliferation of massive public debt
relative to tax revenues. It instituted a new era of global governance. And, it spawned the
debt regime – external rule0based procedures that strengthened grip of the First World on
