Imperialism exists today, but not in the exact form practiced during the Roman Empire or the British Empire. A country exercises imperialism today by projecting its power and domination through military force, ideological control, capitalist accumulation, and the predominance of international finance, trade, technology, and science. Capitalism is a major motivator of modern day imperialism as corporations expand globally to generate more profits. Imperialism creates social and economic inequalities.

Great Britain has always been hungry for power over other countries. One of the political causes of British imperialism was the need to strengthen the country and make free trade easier. Also, the British government aimed to appease the popular census that Christian significance should reach Africa, and there was a need to bolster the economy.
