Part of the 80:20 - The Developing World series

The Legacy of Colonialism examines the role worldview played in the 500 years of colonization that began in the 15th century, tracing historical structures contributing to the current status of many lesser-developed countries. It notes the ray of hope in the late 1960s and early ‘70s—that is, until the formation of OPEC and rising prices for oil.

This compact and comprehensive series explores what could be done to improve living conditions in lesser-developed countries. Dr. Rick McDaniel is originally an American who has spent many years in Canada, working in international development with the YMCA. His experience and personable approach make him the perfect guide for this tour through the hidden complexities of foreign aid. The Dominican Republic, on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, is used as a point of reference throughout. It is there that conditions aptly illustrate the 80:20 phenomenon—that 80% of the world’s wealth is controlled by 20% of its population.

Titles included in this series:

A Tropical Paradise (23 minutes)
Interdependence (25.5 minutes)
Development and Debt (27.5 minutes)
