Since the GOVERNMENTS in those countries control access to resources, thus maintaining the relative poverty of the general population, they are the monopoly over certain resources like people, that enact the policies allowing companies to exploit the resources. The problem is government. If the third world countries did not tyrannical governments of unlimited power, the populations would not suffer as they do now. They would have the individual and local authority to stop the government policies.
