I know that exploit means: to use someone unfairly for your own advantage / benefit.
for instance as far as I know, one can say:
- That boss exploits his employees. (meaning that he takes advantage of them and does not pay them sufficiently.)
But what about a country which takes advantage from a country to its own end? How would a native say the following sentence:
- That country has exploited lots of / many African and Asian countries for centuries.
Is the bold verb above the word you would use here? I would be thankful if you help me with it.
