According to Cannadine, this was the first period that which self-conscious economic historians investigated the industrial revolution. The historians in this period were influenced by the working condition of the commoners, and a complex background of hopes and fears about the society and economy. The characteristic of this period is the revival of the question of what is the condition in England. Mainly concerning housing, health, and unemployment. The second time period is from the year 1920 until 1950, and is marked by the fluctuations of extreme unemployment, and uncertainty of the economic system.
Introduction The world as it was divided into two camps, the capitalist United States (US) and the communist Soviet Union (USSR), in the Cold War changing from an unipolar world after the fall of the USSR (1991) with the USA as remaining power into a multipolar world with the rise of new powers. These rising powers do not solely define themselves by their military and economic strength or diplomatic influence. In the new world order states are more and more globalizing and searching for cross-regional strategic partnerships to maximize their economic interests, gaining commercial advantage on technologies and securing resources like water, oil and gas which can strengthen their position in the multipolar world. A good example of this process
The response to the latter question requires an elaboration of what a firm is entirely about and why it is natural to internalize activities within a firm. Hymer 's contribution has in effect predated most current extant theory. His contribution to the political economy of multinational capital, the focus here, is less known, yet of extraordinary insight and foresight. Hymer predates most important debates on what today is called ‘globalization’ and came upward with an analysis of the most eminent quality and predictions which in the main have stood the test of time. According to Hymer, he said that there are two things that should be consider about why an enterprise in one state should assume control over a society situated in foreign nations.
And, third the defense of the Soviet Union and how they simply were protecting themselves through security and influence. The United States and the Soviet Union following World War II gained World power in two vastly different ways. The United States through capitalism gained economic strength which separated them from most of the countries across the globe. The two major developments at this time which added to the growth of the United States as a World power was: first, the science and technological sources towards the military. Besides from the development of the atomic bomb, the United States had superior weaponry and strategy at this time.
2.4 GLOBALIZATION EFFECTING ORGANIZATIONS Organizations have to respond to globalization as well as to the rapid changes in technology. They must improve their performance and pay more attention to their customers. Companies no longer have the opportunity to only enter new markets as once globalization meant, the old rules don’t apply in today’s situation. With today’s facts organizations have to deal with a fast growing number of competitors and sources of lower cost labor and take responsibility for the risks that are associated with global supply chains. Businesses must adapt to the global market by creating and going after new opportunities.
This is grounded in the main objective of functionalism idea which is attaining functional cooperation through international organizations. The purpose of these organizations is resolving practical and technical problems instead of problems related to military and politics. Since these issues are harder to overcome in complex political conditions, international organizations provide an environment to handle them in a non-political context which in the end would help to establish international peace. Mitrany argued that a world community was a prerequisite for world government. (Alexandrescu, M. 2007: 23) Hence, one can conclude that the reason behind the rivalry of the states is result of international
the state can control other countries that pose a threat to its sovereignty through diplomatic means, such as stricter foreign policy and diplomacy or tightened conditionalities attached to Structural Adjustment Programs. Gilpin defined this kind of behaviour as, “pessimism regarding moral progress and human possibilities” (1984: 304). Tisch& Wallace added that, while rich states donate money to improve their international economic position, the poor states accept money to build their economies and strengthen their governments (1994: 70). In the developing world, therefore, government has to protect its fragile economy from external encroachment. Realists echo this notion, “government in developing country should implement protectionist policies, such as imposing tariffs, in order to help the economy to grow” (Tisch &Wallace, 1994:
It is not applicable to enhance FDI in the country and does not decline the graph of inequality in a nation. The clear outcome could be derived if the policies are set in the right manner and government as well as the private sector has an equal role in implementing them. Other than this, foreign direct investment is needed to develop an economy to survive in a competitive
So, Waltz offered a version of realism that recommended that theorists examine the characteristics of the international system for answers rather than delve into flaws in human nature. In doing so, he sparked a new era in IR theory that attempted to use social scientific methods rather than political theory (or philosophical) methods. The difference is that Waltz’s variables (international anarchy, how much power a state has, etc.) can be empirically/physically measured. Ideas like human nature are assumptions based on certain philosophical views that cannot be measured in the same
