In 1981, 88% of China’s population suffered from poverty, in 2012, it dropped to 6.5%. China’s reaction to globalisation assisted in there GDP to rise and resulted in multiple trade agreement with other countries, which caused in an increase in trade and profit. These factors impacted on China’s economic growth and development. Explanation of how globalisation
However, the economic growth has grew at a slower pace of 7.3% since 2014 compared to 9.91% in 2008 (Shao, Spring, “China’s Growth Slowest Since Global Crisis, Annual Target at Risk”). Therefore, the Chinese government has intensified the control in governmental growth to satisfy the annual target as well as to strengthen economic interdependence. Foreign capitals are necessitated to a minimum of 25% CIT of all profits, in addition to custom tariffs, VAT and consumption taxes (Shih, “Why are
(Encyclopedia) Profits from Canada had decreased from $40 million in 1930 to only $23.2 million in 1933, which is around 42%. The government responded to this by borrowing more money from other countries. The national debt continued to climb throughout the great depression, but the end of 1933, the government owed 100 million USD mostly towards the United Kingdom and to the United States at the beginning of the great depression, but during the beginning of the great depression the government owed them around 2 billion USD, this was due to the
One says, "Increasing tax rate also reallocates resources across sectors toward their highest-value economic use, resulting in increased efficiency and potentially raising the overall size of the economy." (Co-Director et al.) It indicates raising tax rate makes the economy invigorate and they need to use more taxes on welfare. Most countries in Europe have a large and different welfare system, such as subsidies on education, universal and free health treatment, social security, and services. (‘Learn Europe:: Models of the Welfare State in Europe’) Contrary to this, Korea lacks a social security system, such as the benefits of a person of national merits.
Income empirical studies have shown that in two decades since the first economic crisis in the 19th early 20th century the real disposable household income increased by an average of 1.7% a year in OECD countries. However there were differences in the pace of income growth among social classes. Today the average income distribution in OECD countries is at a ratio of 1 to 9 (richest 10% earn 9 times as much as the poorest 10%). The most common metric economists used to measure inequality in income distribution is the Gini coefficient which runs on a scale from zero to one, with zero indicating total equality and one indicating total inequality. The Gini coefficient is based on residents' net income representing a gap between rich and poor.
India is the second largest of the BRICS both by the size of the economy and by population. Similar with China, India is growing at a slower pace than the average rate of the last ten years. India GDP growth slowed down more rapidly than China, as from over 10% to less than 7% in recent four years. Moreover, India’s economy are also taking pressure form the uneven social wealth and the expanding population which brings more demand (“Focus On: BRICS Economic Growth Watch Out for the Speed Bumps”, 2013). Brazil’s growth reduced from 7.5% for 2010 to 2.5% in 2014.
It is still shrinking daily. Some may say that it is true that middle class isn't bringing much in but it due to the stock market crash in 2009 but it has been growing since then. However this is not true. Middle class families are shrinking to the lower class and poverty line America. Brookings Institution defined this group as “including those with income between 100 and 250% of the federal poverty level, or between $18,871 and $47,177 for a family of three, according to the current numbers”.
Based on the United Nations projects, China will lose 67 million workers from 2010 to 2030. Meanwhile, China’s elder population is expected to rise from 110 million in 2010 to 210 million in 2030. Population aging may affect output for two reasons. First, population aging means that large portion of people stop working because their age is not encouraged them to work anymore. If there are no compensation mechanisms at work for the elder, there will be only a small number of population engaged in productive work.
By 2010, it had fallen 0.507 – an substantial drop. This was largely due to the rise of Asia – and primarily China – as a global superpower. In the same timeframe, China’s GDP per capita rose from 271.6 to 4560.5 , and Africa experienced a similar – though reduced – period of per capita GDP growth, driven by lowering birthrates and increasing economic growth. By comparing this growth to that of developed countries, the value of this data becomes apparent. Between 2000 and 2010, Sub-Saharan Africa has maintained a per capita GDP growth rate higher than North American for all but one year, and Europe for every single year.
Delhi had been the greatest city between Constantinople and Peking but the population had fallen to 125,000 in late 19th century. In 19th century the trade increased and Bombay and Calcutta had over 40 percent of foreign trade. Population increase was the crucial factor in the economic development during second half of the 19th century. In the beginning of 19th century there were less cultivators and more land. The growing shortage of the land created serious problems in India as 19th century progressed.
