Societies third world countries became proletarian

This preview shows page 1 out of 1 page.

societies, third world countries became proletarian regions dependent on commercial food and imports, most of which they cannot afford solely with industrial exports. In turn, these countries adopted cheap food policies as a way to keep wages low to facilitate industrialization. Local food markets had no way in competing with cheap imported markets causing peasants to become under to even completely unemployed, shifting predominant staple foods to commercial foods and low wages. This happened in Colombia, once self-sufficient on potatoes and barley, to a new dependence on food aid and imported wheat. This isn’t fair to farmers in third world countries. These farmers have no control of the dump of wheat surplus and United States’ search for capitalistic opportunity. One way I think the Unites States could have fixed the problem is by simply cutting down the production of wheat. Reconstruction in Europe shouldn’t have affected those living in Asia, Africa and Latin America because it has created a greater problem for societies, causing an inability to feed and support themselves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
