Polarized Capitalism

This is probably the part of the Communist Manifesto is often referred to as the global expansion of capitalism Images.

Old national industries have been destroyed or are about to be destroyed. If they are displaced, including the introduction of new industry on behalf of all the people involved in life-and-death question. And it is not just about the art of the indigenous raw material, raw material from the outermost regions are working on; industrial production in the world that is not just using indigenous, being used all over the world. The needs which generated the object, rather than looking at the needs of all the old and new dependence of nations around the world reciprocally. To destroy all the nations fear (be forced to) take bourgeois the production process. This forces the system to their own civilization, he said, so that they became bourgeois. The world bourgeoisie forget in the likeness of a nutshell.

Certainly the history of the past century has accepted that the clause has been stated that one hundred and fifty years ago, it is still effective. However, an important feature of this descriptive intrusion of capitalism in manifesto, which is missing. Capitalism, according to its nature and geographic spread of stores, while it is still alive and was very uneven. Even though the economy is still nothing certain significant trends follow mathematical rules of capitalism are caused by internal provision. With a few remaining capitalist countries in the world, clear and growing gap between the staring is a great example of the trend can be seen. This is our time, the pace of globalization had revealed the polarization certainly.

Distribution of incomes

A study of income distribution in the world from 1965 to 1990 shows that the world's population 20 per cent of the world's total production of services in the countries share 83 per cent of their production and is used to fill (the 10 per cent share of the world population now stands at 56 per cent). 20 per cent of the population of the poorest people in the world for 1.4 per cent of the total amount of goods produced. And the remaining 20 per cent of the world's richest countries, the income distribution of the difference is particularly noticeable trends. The four lowest (income basis) total income group countries in the world to be shared equally decreased from 1965 to 1990. 20 per cent of the wealthy should be equal to the speed increased to 83 per cent from 70 per cent. Most of the time when these events are happening rich countries were stagnant stationary and new industrial, financial and other services to the development of poor countries, more Capital flowed from the rich countries. Next year's World Bank report, the same information can be seen only in the 1990s that polarization is in full swing.

Such has been the expansion of capitalism at the end of a few centuries : 60 per cent of the world's population, only 5.3 per cent of the world's total production of goods and income received, where 83 per cent to 20 percent is the highest in the hands of rich people.

The Ultimate Liberation From Exploitation

One of the most widely used terms with the relevant commitments made in the Manifesto : 'In previous years, more than 100 years under the rule of the bourgeoisie, bourgeoisie fairly large, also made giant producing energy.' The manifesto has been presented many thing, but a hundred and fifty years later, there is no way of giving extra importance to the issue. Again we need to recognize that the production of energy by region what is unusual is the uneven distribution continues. On the one hand the wonders of electronics' magical touch, the United Nations Human Development report reveals that more than a hundred million people around the world are deprived of safe drinking water. 80 per cent of the world's population meet the needs of the poor, such as the production of useful goods and services is helpful.

At present, the great socialist dream is to talk about the radical group. Often parts of the developed capitalist countries of the world the standard of living of the beneficiaries of this achievement and affect vision. However, the spread of capitalism around the world and the world has the most developed countries, keeping in mind that it is the dream of socialism emphasis on social change, which is the first target; to meet the basic humanitarian needs of the poorest people in extreme exploited and neglected as a poor failure.
