Imperialistic distribution system
Other Names: Economic imperialism of transnational enterprises
Emerging oligopolistic world trading system
Nature: The distribution system at the global level is imperialistic in nature -- based on corporate empires -- rather than national. Production and distribution of products is based on limited operating images of society's and company needs. International, national and local economic and business relations are structurally blocked by tax, financial, and legal policy.
