Application: Multinational Corporations
Globalization has led to unprecedented expansion of multinational corporations. Multinational corporations possess the greatest resources and competence required to reduce poverty. They bring new jobs, advanced technology, financial credit, and skills training to impoverished regions of the world. On the other hand, opponents of globalization point to increasing inequality and poverty in nations where international businesses and multinational corporations are allowed to conduct business. As a result, some feel that the presence of multinational corporations actually harms impoverished regions and nations rather than helps them.
