How Colonization has Affected Kenya’s Involvement in the Global Economy

Public Deposited

The purpose of this paper was to understand colonization in terms of its effect on Kenya’s involvement in the global economy. This was done by analyzing trade export information of Kenya’s cash crop, tea, as well as the colonial history of Kenya. The dataset, collected from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAOSTAT), was analyzed through Tableau. This was done to understand the overall trend of Kenya’s tea exports and offer up an idea of what the future entails for the country. However, the research shows that even with the upward trend of tea growth, the ghost of Kenya’s colonial leader is still involved in the country’s economy and people are affected.
