Global Inequality The world's wealth is split unevenly. This global stratification may be related to the modernization theory based on technology, or the Dependency theory based on dependency of wealthy countries. Either way it does not change that the fact that the world's wealth is divided unevenly. This picture shows how out of the three billion people of the world only 300 hold the world's riches.
Intel's dedication to 'Conflict free raw materials' is one example of resource dependency theory. Here we see Intel vetting and regulating their suppliers, this will in turn elevate the wonder of 'is my mine going to get shut down by warlords?'. By stabilizing their supply chain, Intel is better able to predict prices, and also is getting good publicity as a result.
