The Locavores blame this to the outside production and transportation of products such as meat or vegetables. They have decided that the consumption of local food will help in reducing global warming because the distance of transportation of products will be small compare to outside production. Still, this is not completely true. The transportation of products is not greatest factor in climate impact in fact one of the greatest contributor to the Greenhouse gas emission is the production of foods (Source D). Also, the difference of CO2 produce by outside production and local production might be minimal if not the same.
Food availability decline theory is vulnerable to criticism because it confined on food availability at local levels instead of including assessments on food availability at aggregate or macro levels. They argued that the crop failures due to natural disasters often result in high food prices, increased demand to deal with uncertainties. The decline in purchasing power affects the poor and those who are in trouble by bad weather to become food insecure (Lin and Yang 2000, cited in Galunde,
The bank will also remove the natural checks in place on poor countries. Without the checks of crop failures and famines as mentioned by Hardin (588), the human population will continue to grow, which will eventually lead to a food shortage
This is supported by The Humane Society. The advantage of this solution is the inhumanity of factory farming will reduce. Therefore, the government will more closely monitor factory farms. The disadvantage of this solution is it would cost a lot of money. According to the factory farms, the only complaint is the cost of food, transportation and proper sanitation.
By the government raising minimum wage, this will force owners to compensate with their employees. This could result in letting employees go, giving employees very limited hours or cutting down the owners pay. Whichever way it goes, this is a downfall to the economy because people will end up losing their jobs, businesses will lose money which would decrease total profit and it could result in the closing of businesses and
The more people that are unemployed, the less money being used to buy things which hurts the economy. When people don’t have jobs or are scared about losing their jobs, it affects the way they buy things (consumer confidence, their will to or not to spend their money) which in return, hurts the economy. If the minimum wage is increased then certain businesses won’t be able
DETERMINANTS OF SUPPLY CURVE 1. COST OF PRODUCTION: An increase in the cost of inputs of production such as sugar, caffeine and colors causes an increase in the cost of production. This means that an increase in cost will cause the supplier less willing to supply at a given rate. An increase in cost resulting from shortage of ingredients or disruption of supply is one of the common reasons why the suppliers cannot supply the product at a given price thus shifting the supply curve from S1 to S2.Adverse climatic fluctuations results in low productivity of agriculture which in turn affects Coca Cola. 2.
This was perhaps the beginning of a major change in agriculture that is still an issue today with farmers. This problem is that of large farmers and businesses forcing smaller farmers out of business by lowering the already marginal profitability farming on a small scale. This elimination of small competitors from the field of competition not only eliminated jobs, as shown in The Grapes of Wrath, but also led to the development of monopolies in today’s food industry. Although this is a natural result of capitalism, it cause several inherent problems, the most important is keeping food from being produced and consumed locally, which aids the financial standing of local areas, instead of centralizing it in major corporations. It also allows for the exploitation of laborers due to the lack of competition among different producers for wages and working conditions.
• By building economies of scale so that it can lower the fixed cost per unit. • Building capacities and spending money on research and development. New entrants are less likely to enter a dynamic industry where the established players such as Twitter, Inc. keep defining the standards regularly. It significantly reduces the window of extraordinary profits for the new firms thus discourage new players in the industry. Bargaining Power of
The decision to cut down the expenditure means reduction in number of bases and corresponding slice in funding, hence, increasing the friction between the states to have a base in their state. • It is also less likely that the funds diverted from military expenditure immediately produce equivalent economic activity and returns in other forms thereby, hampering the economy. According to an article by Business Insider, immediate slashing of expenditure is sure going to be a problem to its economy. So, it suggests continuing spending the diverted budget so that fairly equivalent economic activity continues without impacting the number of jobs. This can be done by rerouting the funds to the development and renovation of new and existing domestic infrastructure respectively.
