OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL: Ownership means that you have legal "title" to a resource, good, or commodity. Control means that you have the ability to determine how a resource, good, or commodity is used. While it would seem as though these two always go together, such is not the case.

But in some circumstances ownership is absent of control and control exists without ownership.

IMPORT SUBSTITUTION: A strategy for economic development for a country based on replacing imported goods with domestic production. This is often directed toward imported inputs used for domestic production. The goal of this policy is to encourage domestic production, which subsequently increases domestic income and consumption. A contrasting economic development is export promotion.
