Searchers are constantly aware of the fact that poverty results from a combination of political, social, historical, institutional and technological factors: the legend of The Big Push appears to be a lie. The legend attribute poverty to an inherited trap which can be overcome by foreign aid programs to push the economy up Poor countries of today aren’t necessarily so because they started off poor and couldn’t develop; statistics show that countries with above-average aid had a growth similar to those with below-average aid. Foreign aid can do well to the economy, but it is not a mean to overcome poverty. Chad, despite foreign aid, had a growth of nearly 0% in 50 years, while Botswana with less aid sprung

On top of such uncertainty, there were pessimistic predictions at the time that the U.S economy would soon fall into recession. Both BW/IP and UCP relied mostly on U.S customers.
In the first decade of the century, Brazil benefitted from strong demand – particularly from China – for some of its key export commodities (e.g. iron ore, soybeans and raw sugar). Supported by positive terms of trade effects, Brazil’s annual GDP growth rate averaged 3.1% over this period. Since the fall in commodity prices in 2011 during the economic recession(see graph 4), these terms of trade effects have reversed. With Brazil in an strong situation to weather a recession prior to the decrease in price of their main exported goods, based on the data their good situation then was not a strong enough buffer alone to prevent their real GDP growth from declining below negative ranges.
Chapter 3 – Iceland (Case Study) Iceland became one of the symbols of the global financial crisis. Before the global financial crisis, Iceland was one of the most stable countries with high standard of living, low unemployment and very low rate of government debt. Iceland became a good example of success stories of globalization and financial deregulation.

Globalisation has been perceived as a solution to reduce income inequality across the globe. This could be explained by improvements in infrastructures and communications, which allow the developing countries to close the gap with the richer developed countries. Moreover, the theory of comparative advantage also supports this stand. However, the article suggested that despite this supposedly positive global phenomenon, inequality has instead worsened within many developing countries. One possible explanation to this issue could be the problem of outsourcing, where there is a distinctive difference with regards to the rise in productivity between the skilled and unskilled workers.
