The present study elaborates on the importance of material flows in the context of local and global production systems. The theoretical part describes how population growth induced the need for global production and how it contributed to further welfare disparities. The research focuses on the socio-economic processes of globalization with a special consideration on resources. It states that business processes have grown over the importance of territorial affairs in the past 100-150 years. Movements requiring war conflicts in previous times are currently conducted through international trade relations. The spread of empires has been replaced by global corporate expansion. The paper reviews essential literature concerning this hypothesis and argues for the transparency of resource utilization throughout the phenomenon. The results stand for the introduction of border adjustment taxes based on accurate resource valuation. The preference of local markets does not only strengthen local economies but comes significant regarding sustainable resource management
