Moniker given by political writers to describe the way the devoloped Western countries treat the Third World...by shipping them their garbage (from chemically-toxic and nuclear waste to the 'innocent'-sounding medical-waste management!) and pay them much-needed US dollar in return for their 'services'!
Garbage imperialism is on the rise in countries like Iraq: I know an Iraqi friend who lives here in Jordan that specialises in MWM (Medical Waste Management), and he tells me that this is his only way to make bread in Iraq these days?! WTFF!
