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.
Andre Gunder Frank (February 24, 1929 – April 23, 2005) was a German-American economic historian and sociologist who promoted dependency theory after 1970 and world-systems theory after 1984. He employed some Marxian concepts on political economy, but rejected Marx's stages of history, and economic history generally.
Media plays a major part in the perceptions associated with war. Dependency Theory is especially pronounced in times of change and conflict, when an "individuals’ needs, motives, and uses of media are contingent on outside factors that may not be in the individuals’ control." This poster depicting an SS Soldier says; "Norwegians battle for Norway" obviously speaking to occupied Norwegians and attempting to convince them that they too are German soldiers at heart.
