The cost of Zimbabwe’s involvement used a big portion of the government expenditure. As the country recovered from the war, the government was unable to make changes that aided the budget deficit (Munangagwa 114). In Zimbabwe, over sixty percent of its sixteen million population lives below the national poverty line. The people who are living in low income households are unable to obtain sufficient basic needs like food, clothing, education, and access to social services (Chinake 40). In the rural areas of Zimbabwe, poor conditions like dry soil and low productivity affects seventy percent of the population (Alwang et al.

This affected the nation significantly, as the population decreases, not much children would grow up to work for the nation, thus creating less income and therefore not increasing the nation’s GDP as much as it can. The numbers of immigrants accepted into Canada dropped to less than 12,000 in the 1935 from 169,000 in 1929, thats over 1400% loss in immigrants. The amount of immigrants accepted into Canada never rose above 17,000 for the remainder of the decade. The number of deportations, however, rose from fewer than 2,000 people in 1929 to more than 7,600 in just under four years. In addition to the deportations, approximately 30,000 immigrants were forcibly returned to their original countries over the course of the decade, this was predominately due to illness or unemployment.
It costs United States taxpayers about $113 billion per year at the federal, state and local level; as a result, states and local governments absorb the bulk of the costs approximate $84 billion (The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, 2011). It is a huge amount of money that can affect education systems because it is a part of education funding that supports local students educations such as scholarships and learning materials. When a government loses that money from illegal immigrants, the students will either lose their chances to get scholarships, and the education sources such as libraries and technologies for learning will not able to develop because of lack of money. In fact, the less quality of education systems affects students that they will have low performance. Moreover, it also has negative impacts on social services.
Poverty in 1920’s America was defined by making less than a certain amount of money each year, which was determined by the government (BBC). The masses were indifferent to the amount of people impoverished, proving the mindset of false prosperity. The preconceived notions that the U.S. economy would be unimpaired were soon disproved by the Great Depression. People who were impoverished were getting loans, and buying luxury items (Facts). This lifestyle of believing in the false prosperity and not realizing the problems during the 1920’s of America caused people to suffer more.
Due to these cheap imports, many local businesses have closed down. Also, extremely strict new labour laws, in favour of employees, do not make hiring new staff attractive to employers. A historical reason for unemployment is the Apartheid Group Areas Act, that was set up by Hendrik Verwoerd (who was also a sociologist), which caused masses of the South African population to reside far and long distances from workplaces. Therefore, travelling costs could take most of their earnings, more than half of their earnings. So, these people that are affected by long distance travelling (to workplaces) probably do not see the use in working, if it is basically just to cover travel costs, and seems more like a travelling allowance than a

Furthermore, globalization also increases income inequality by favouring wealthy corporations as they have the resources to expand their businesses creating more profits. For instance, if a company moves production of a particular product to an economically disfavoured country, people in industrialised countries tend to lose their jobs, simultaneously creating job opportunities for the people in the developing country. Numerous individuals in this nation work for a menial pay contrasted with those in industrialized nations, henceforth, they frequently stay poor furthermore don't have adequate protection, for example, social and health insurance. While wealthy companies flourish, small businesses do not have the capital to grow globally and cannot compete in the market leading to a big gap in small business profits and big business profits. Also leading to a crowding after effect on small businesses and more income for the already wealthy corporations which exacerbates inequality between the poor and the rich.
Political crisis and economic decline have left many sectors including education on the verge of collapse. Brain drain is causing highly skilled teachers and Professors to leave schools and universities in search for greener pastures abroad and in neighbouring countries due to lower and unattractive teacher salaries and poor working conditions.
