2The Global Divide Between Rich and Poor For the last five centuries there has been a growing split throughout the world this split has been between the haves and the have-nots These two groups can be defined two ways One between the rich and poor in individual countries and two between the rich and poor countries themselves Both definitions have seen increasing polarization over the last 500 years but the definitive century was the last 100 years The twentieth century held wealth and fortune beyond the dreams of many but desperation and famine for many others Overall the focus of this paper is the division of wealth by country most often referenced by the relations between north and south What we find is a massive wealth buildup in the north as the south struggles to grow and develop with the illusion that they can reach the status of the north and that the north would let them achieve such status In the pages that follow we will find reference to political demographic social environmental and economic information that highlights some of the information impressions and ideals of the situation Political Governments around the world have been following neoliberal economic policies of the north for several years and in the process trade barriers disappear public industries are privatized and corporations have grown large enough that now instead of the English Empire the sun never sets on them Privatization has created many opportunities for these countries to grow especially in the last decade As governments begin to dismantle the industrial holdings created through statist policies great opportunities arise for MNCs to buy into new marketplaces through privatization Privatizations in developing countries are increasing in volume and value from 50 privatizations worth 25 billion in 1998 to 750 privatizations worth 24 billion in 1994 Countries sell off their capital and let corporations become dominators sometimes holding more control than the government itself Governance does not mean
