Global trade has impacted developing nations on a large scale, as the growth of populations continues to experience increased rates of poverty due to resource distribution, and depletion of natural goods and services.
International trade practices fail to meet sustainable trade in impoverished nations throughout Southern Asia, and the Sub-Saharan Africa. Poverty throughout these areas is caused by corporate privatization of public goods, and the unabated unfair wage practices, with most families working for a little as $2.50 per day.
Impacts due to drought and the global warming crisis has increased food prices for millions who are dependant on local economies for self sustainability.
Women have become increasingly impoverished due to agribusiness flooding the market with cheap goods, while limiting small farmers access to fresh water and seed supplies.
Many victims of poverty feel that food prices have become inflated due to stolen food sources and failed distribution methods. Many of the people that are hardest hit by global trade restrictions on food, and accessibility to clean drinking water is children.
As women try to move through the ranks in corporate environments, they are often ignored when upper level management positions become available. The increase in costs for health care in rural areas is due to disparity in the training and utilization of services in urban/resource rich areas which restricts access to lower-income or remote populations.
Global partnerships have begun to influence the decisions of political leaders reaching for higher health care costs due to the privatizing of healthcare, and historically government sponsored healthcare providers.
Life should be considered at all levels. Statutory practices should be put in place to prevent government and corporate collusion. There is a need to lobby for “fairer world trade”.
Steps are needed to help develop stronger relationships at the public level in order to help reducing global climate impacts, which produce drought like conditions, weatherizing of top soil, and land erosion due to unsustainable agribusiness practices.
The United States is one of the richest counties in the world. However, through political and government policies privatizing the public sector, life expectancy, health, and the fiscal well being of more than one — billion people in Southern Asia, and Sub-Sahara Africa continue to experience poverty due to profit driven markets.
