It began with the world economic crisis in 1929 that affected the American nation the most. The crisis of overproduction of goods provoked the Great Depression. At that time, commodities/goods/items could not be bought because of the limitation of money supply - dollars were tied to the gold reserve. The end of the First World War played an important role in boosting the severe economic crisis. The fact was that the U.S. economy was heavily dependent on defense orders, and, after the end of the war, their number decreased, which led to a recession in the American military-industrial complex.
He argues against modernization theory in his discussion of the type of interaction or engagement between the metropolis and its satellites. Using examples of third world countries in Latin America, he argues that this system is characterized by exploitation of the satellite centres while the metropolis enjoys the economic benefits. He contends that underdevelopment stems out of this metropolis-satellite relationship. Historical evidence in most former third world colonies clearly indicates that the metropolis used its power and prominence to its advantage. This succeeded in exposing the satellite to economic exploitation and vulnerability leaving it
Preblish and his friends developed dependency theory as an attempt to understand why some countries in the world remained underdeveloped. Preblish found that increases in the wealth of the rich nations appeared to be at the expense of the poorer ones. Dependency theory is a notion that resources flow
However, the failures of the model were clearly reflected in the developing countries that followed the autarky policy. These countries often experienced stagnant growth and finally decided to open their economies once again such as China, Tanzania and India (Ololube, 2006). Meanwhile, the experience of the newly industrialized economies of East Asia, namely Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea, during the1970s and 1980s showed that their success had been the result of emphasizing trade with the advanced industrial countries. The negative impacts of the policy of autarky rendered the theory out of favour in the 1980s (Ololube, 2006). Assumptions of the International Dependence Model i.Developed countries can exploit national resources of developing countries through getting cheap supply of food and raw materials.
They are eliminated from the benefits. Evidence to this is the division between rural-urban areas of a country such as Brazil, China and India. There are trade imbalances due to globalisation. As when a country 's large economies are affected, all over the effects are felt. Domestic jobs and businesses are lost due to decrease in trade.
This was termed as imperialism by Lenin. Karl Kautsky’s theory of imperialism: Karl Kautsky introduces the term of ultra imperialism, which is in stark contrast with the Marxist Leninist claim of imperialism. As discussed above, Leninist idea suggests that imperialism is the final stage of any capitalist system. In argument with that, Karl Kautsky theorizes the possibility of creating of a cartel which he suggests is another possible step in the evolution of capitalism. Kautsky believes that imperialism is a policy adopted by industrialized states so as to cope with the loss of agrarian traditions in the core.
Deflation is an indication the economic conditions are deteriorating. Deflation is usually connected with lots unemployment, and is only corrected after wages decrease. Also businesses’ profits decrease greatly during periods of deflation, making it more difficult to increase extra capital to expand and develop new technologies Disinflation is the fall in inflation because of decisions and measures of authorities. It shows the rate of change of inflation. For example if Trinidad inflation rate is 7% and decreases to 6% it can be said that Trinidad is experiencing disinflation for the first quarter of the year.
After 1990s, Japan’s GDP growth has been sluggish compared to other major world economies. The cause of the weak growth were a rapidly ageing population, protected, uncompetitive sectors of economy such as health care, agriculture, energy and segmentation the labour workforce. The increasing segmentation of the labour market between regular workers with generous rights and non-regular workers with fewer rights who tend to be part-time or fixed-term contracts on other. 2. Deflation Deflation has become entrenched since the late 1990s has a harmful effect on the economy.
From his book, he advances a theory of comparative advantage in 1820’s which is still very famous among the economist. The theory states that the country needs to put emphasis to production and export of goods in which it results to cost advantage compared with other countries, and import goods that its production has relative cost disadvantages (Ricardo 1817: 13; Samuelson and Nordhaus 2010: 341). In this theory, Ricardo explains that even if a country has a low ability to produce in both goods, should concentrate on the production of good which it has a less disadvantage and trade with the other country to import goods which it has high disadvantages (Ricardo 1817). Ricardo uses the hypothetical ideas of two countries A and B and two products involved in trade i.e. coffee and tea.
Mültezim earned the right of taxation with an auction. Iltizam system had bad impact on peasants because mültezim had to make pressure on peasants. Because of pressure, this system did not work much long time. Also industrial revolution and nationality in the world reconstructed the world economy. These elements lead to decline economy of Ottoman Empire.
