The concept of poverty was not suddenly introduced to the world, it “began with military conquest, slavery, and colonization: the seizure of
Globalization became popular in mid 1980s. Technological progress increased the production of computers and internet usage started to become prevalent.

The Philippines has had a major problem ever since poverty has struck there. Especially when the typhoon hit the Philippines and where people lost their lives and homes and have nowhere else to live. Now poverty has affected a quarter percentage of the population and is still increasing. About 30% of the population is living under the poverty line.

other problems have cause many people in the world to begin to assess the globalization of the world and the global justice that comes along with it.
