After centuries of advancements in agriculture and commerce towards economic stabilization, “Rome became the greatest center of consumption of all, and Rome’s population rose to a million by the end of the first century BCE” (Smith). With a rapidly growing population, commerce was more crucial than ever since a reliable source of food was also necessary. Water routes within Rome itself increased the interdependence of cities as well. Rivers, mainly the Tiber River, became apparent as an essential route from inner Rome to the Mediterranean Sea. Alongside water routes, land routes also contributed to the increasing commerce around the world.
Taking an active role in the city government has brought me to access the importance of bridging gaps within the community, an effort that I hope to continue and grow through my position on the Red Cross Club board. How have you contributed to Westmont’s Red Cross Club this past year?
New York City today makes up the largest regional urban economy in the United States. It has been able to recover from tough financial crises, particularly the recent Great Recession of 2008. The city is home of the New York Stock Exchange, which was founded in the early 1800s and is “the most influential securities exchange in the world” (Ross). Manhattan leads the growth of employment in the city with its office-using sector. All sectors of the economy are growing, but this growth is usually concentrated in either very high-paying occupations or low-skilled ones.
These cities are important centers which dominate the urban world and the global economy. They are significant because key personnel and activates are located within them and they not necessarily because of their economic status or population size. To show how important they are; ten of these cities host the headquarters of nearly half of the world’s largest 500 transnational manufacturing corporations. According to Clark (1996) these cities are the result of three reasons. The first one is the growth in the number and range of institutions of global capital.
The Kingdoms of Mali and France While the empire of Mali may have existed as early as 1000 AD, it wasn’t until the mid-1200s that it truly rose to power. Between the years of 1230 and 1340, Sundiata Keita of Mali led a war against Sumaguru Kante, an opposing ruler. In 1240, his victory led to the formation of the kingdom of Mali. Mali grew rapidly, becoming one of the world’s largest empires. Because the kingdom was so large, it controlled many trade routes and gold deposits, further aiding the prosperity of the empire.
“In 1932, Roosevelt campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of proposed public spending and relief programs, promising a "new deal" for the beleaguered American public” (Ryan 1). This soon became a policy. This “new deal” policy helped to make resources available to people who couldn’t afford much while helping the government get back on track. It raised the industry’s production levels. After Roosevelt’s first term being president, he with because he had great intentions of bringing the country out of the depression by using his new deal policy.
There are many big cities is experiencing to urbanization in theirs commercial and residential issues. Cardiff, similarly many large city has seen industrial developing , which impact to the great ways of industrial economics. These changes led to advantages and disadvantages to Cardiff in terms of population history and economic aspects. At present, population dynamic in Wales, which has dramatically increased since it began industrial reformation, is the one of disadvantages to Cardiff’s industrial enterprise. There are a significantly increase in Cardiff’s population, which a resident census is represented estimation to 346,100 persons with 13.3% in an increase by 2001 to 2011 (The Office for National Statistics, 2011)(1).
The conference “Partners for Progress” was held in November 2001 in Paris and it emphasized how is it important for business to accept responsible behavior, in regard to move towards sustainable local developments. “Businesses today face an ever-widening circle of obligations. Not only must they satisfy their customers and their employees, but also respond to broader environmental and social concerns. Consumers and investors, as well as other community stakeholders, have greater expectations of companies than ever before. They want firms to supply quality goods and services efficiently in a way that minimizes adverse social or environmental costs.” (Corporate Social Responsibility: Partners for Progress OECD, Paris 2001) Bryan Horrigan underlines that CSR scholarship in the 21st century engages new debates and themes, while also making the transition from 20th century and sometimes even residual 18th and 19th century thinking and practices surrounding corporations.
As the global population continues to rise more people are choosing to live in the world's cities. With United Nations predictions indicating a peak of 70% urban inhabitation by 2050 (ESA-UN, 2007, quoted in: Agudelo-Vera et al. 2010, 2295), how we facilitate the accommodation of over half of the 3.5 billion people on the planet in these urban landscapes is paramount to both our impact on the remaining natural environment, and the quality of life we live. Sustainability is a word thrown about with great frequency but little definition in relation to the built environment in contemporary specification, advertising and academic texts, and while society as a whole must take a greater responsibility in the use and re-use of natural resources,
The need for affordable housing is rising more than ever as the world population crosses 7 billion and is forecasted to reach 9 billion by 2030 (World Population Clock). Urban growth, urban migration, and rapid urbanization are among factors that boosts the need for affordable housing. “Urban growth rates are highest in the developing world, absorbing an average of 5 million new urban residents per month, and thus account for the largest portion of urban population growth on the globe” (Rizvi, 2016). Global urbanization was 51% in 2010, and by 2030 it is likely to reach 61%. Major metropolitan areas in developing countries will be absorbing 95% of the overall urban population growths in the country (Rizvi, 2016) .Asia, Africa, the Middle East

Not only are they fixing up dilapidated buildings, they are also bringing in new businesses that will stimulate the economy. The problem, however, is the effect the revitalization has on the homeless community. The project is already underway; new “trendy” stores have been built alongside the luxury high rises located near the waterfront. While this improvement should be happily received by residents, one must question what will happen to the current residents and, more importantly, the homeless population that rely on establishments that have been around for decades. This change
Corsica France was the place I got I thought it was amazing place to go. It was the 4th biggest island in the Meridian home to 322,120 people as of Jan. 1,13.

In Corsica there is so much to see and do, I mean its in island in France whats not to see,do,and like?
As an Economics major, having international experience in a culturally-rich environment such as Paris will allow me to exercise my language and intercultural skills. I especially look forward meaningful forming relationships with people from diverse backgrounds; my peers and the local residents. The French language in particular is spoken around the world in both Western and developing nations, including my parents’ homeland of Haiti. When I graduate I want to become a Foreign Service Officer, with a specialization in Francophone countries, giving me the power to connect with local communities and make a positive impact through my work in the official government language. My career goal is to one-day serve as the United States Ambassador for Haiti.
