Gentrification can bring many things to a city, such as renovation and shifts in an urban community lifestyle and an increasing share of wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values. The bad things it brings would be leaving longtime home owners out of a home because taxes on their property have sky rocketed and can no longer afford to pay. Not only this but in the process of gentrifying a community it kicks out the poorer residents and sends them to other neighborhoods which are just as poor and now overpopulated. If having to choose a side on this topic, I would have to say I am for gentrification. Despite its negative affects, I believe renovation is a huge part of life and that is how cities show economical strength and wealth, which then brings in jobs for many people all
To put in perspective, most immigrants come to the United States seeking a better life and with a better life comes the need of overconsumption. Overconsumption such as having a car which releases pollutants or building a new home. This new wave of immigrants is causing detrimental effects on the American ecological footprint. Also, to note the wave of immigrants has also is creating urbanization. Although urbanization can be positive in this case, it is negative because there has been a destruction of agricultural life to make room for the growing population.
These earnings gaps can be explained by lower education levels among immigrants for example. Regarding the effects of immigration on labor outcomes Immigration affects the wages of the host country in several ways. First of all, it increases the labor force of the receiving country and, this growth in labor supply, have a negative impact on the average wages if there aren’t factors of production that can adjust this change. Secondly, as immigrants could substitute native workers in their jobs, they are also expected to lower the wages accepting lower conditions and salaries. Generally, immigrants tend to concentrate in certain regions, often the major cities.
They take something terrible and use it to make them better. Adversity develops character by helping develop skills that may not have been necessary if they had not gone through hardships. In the late 19th century during the Industrial Revolution, the increased demand for manufactured products and consequently the increase of new jobs, as well as the allure of the city, led many families to move to the large overcrowded cities. As they moved to these cities, it often was a time of trial and adversity due to small houses or tenements, low income
The population of immigrants would increase drastically. Overpopulation will have a negative impact in the economy. There would be a dramatic increase in the demand for food, minerals, fuel and other resources. Many farms will become more vulnerable, because people would lose their crops and animals, which would leave them to starve. Starvation will cause many deaths to occur.
Gentrification is a fast growing process in most cities today. Displacement through gentrification has many side effects for low-income families. Gentrification is a major problem; it is the displacement of people of lower socioeconomic status and replacing them with people of higher economic status, raising the property rates on these gentrified properties so that the lower classes can no longer afford to live there and further creating social inequality among the citizens of our community. We take broken parts of town and convert them into lavish attractions for visitors and natives. These so-called broken parts of town have residents who can no longer afford to live in these parts.
Not only are people being pushed out of their neighbourhoods and homes by those willing to pay more, there is an apparent price hike for those who desire to stay in their homes. Non-integrated/non-gentrified communities start off with higher poverty rates while simultaneously having low homeownership. Then people with higher incomes move in causing a raise in the cost of living within the community. Despite this the working class pay and low income remain the same for the original residents who can no longer afford to live in what once was their home. The social cost of the actions are extremely high and cause just as many community issues as household familial issues.
In the study, push factors are poverty, unemployment and natural calamity, while better opportunity, high wage, relatives or friends stay since long time are the indicators of pull factors. Migration is a natural process that often happens depending on the socio-economic, demographic, cultural, political and environmental factors related to the migrant people.

With the increase of population the number of vehicles in the urban areas will also increase, but if the land area won’t get expand it will lead to traffic congestion. This is a huge negative impact on the country’s economy. The main negative impact from traffic congestion is the wastage of fuel, energy. Other than that; wastage of time, difficulties in parking, less efficiency and effectiveness are some negative impacts of traffic congestions. • HIGH MAINTANANCE COST To meet the higher urbanization and higher population new infrastructure has to be provided and as well as has to upgrade the current
Living in urban multicultural areas make human more educative, gregarious, inspired and knowledgeable to different backgrounds. When individuals who used to live in rural areas with an experience of one single culture, travel to urban areas, which is full of multicultural people with different nationalities, ideas, languages, foods, behaviors and ethnics with the absence of familiarity they will experience what is called “culture shock”. This will make individuals more stress and they will feel strange and different than residents in the urban area. They will be depressed and pessimistic. On the other hand, there are some positive features of exposure to a culturally diverse city.
