Abstract

Poverty and income equality have become to stand in the forefront of the world that globalised through neo-classical policies after 1980. Besides technological dependence, globalisation wave has also led to a commercial dependence of surrounding countries to the central countries as well. The purpose of this study is to evaluate globalisation process in the world through its results of technological development and poverty. Production of genetically modified products which were justified as a solution to poverty caused by growing population; however, only appeals to the commercial considerations of developed countries. Due to profit ambition, these products have entered into our lives fast before they are discussed ethically and examined about their possible effects on the human health and ecology. This study consists of material, secondary data and literature about the subject. The method used in the study is descriptionary examination of the relationship between poverty (the problem of hunger) and technological development through globalisation. As a result, besides and relative poverty, neo-classical economic theories also bring human poverty in the forefront . Especially, economic considerations should not be highlighted in the technology policies for agriculture fields but the hazards of these technologies on ecology and human beings should also be taken into consideration.
