Article Summary The article, The Colour of Poverty: A Study of the Poverty of Ethnic and Immigrant Groups in Canada (Kazempiur & Halli, 2000) sets out to answer the question of how different groups of immigrants are performing economically. Taking into account the ethnic origin, period and age at immigration and immigrant’s geographical location within Canada, the authors are able to examine each group individually and compare them. In publishing this article, the authors clear up the issue of why previous research involving immigrants ' economic performance have had mixed results. Their research shows that to get accurate results one cannot study immigrants as one group. By analyzing the data from the 1991 Canadian census the authors establish
CBU TUITION For the 2012-13 academic year, the average undergraduate tuition at CBU was $5,238 for Canadian students and $12,130 for International students. If the students may not get an academic career, and will get them the long-term burden of debt. Increasing the family cost and unemployment rate had a bad influence for the community development. 2). Safety the low education level of teenagers, increase the danger of community security.
At this point it was widely acknowledged that many of America’s cities faced severe economic, fiscal, and social problems. In hindsight the problems were two fold. First, as Harold Wolman points out in his exhaustive essay titled The Reagan Urban Policy and its Impacts “metropolitan-area population and employment had decentralized, leaving central cities trapped within fixed boundaries with a disproportionately high share of the needy populations and social problems like unemployment, poverty, crime and poor overall health, but a disproportionately low share of the tax base” (Wolman, 312). In addition, Wolman went on to point out that urban centers had a higher share of minority residents at the time, which caused the problems of minorities to be seen as identical to the issues facing urban
This idea was also seen by Eric Rahimian and Fesseha Gebremikael in their article “Poverty Amid Affluence in Alabama” from Journal of the Alabama Academy of Science. “High poverty rates persist in many inner cities, counties and rural areas, and particularly in areas inhabited by minorities…. In our view, the main causes of poverty are poor education, low income and lack of opportunity.” This idea may have been true during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but the higher rates of poverty now are seen between different age groups rather than the demographic groups. According to the United States Census Bureau, the poverty rate for children under the age of 18 is currently at 19.7%, where the rate for those aged 18 to 64 is 12.4% and those aged 65 and older is only at 8.8%. The largest part of those living in poverty in the state of Alabama is represented by none other than the children living
Overpopulation Overpopulation is a condition that is undesirable. Overpopulation is one of the problems that people concern it to. One of the serious countries facing this problem is China. Reports in China show that it has about 1.4 billion people in this country; it takes about one over seven people of the world population. China is the third largest land after Russia and Canada in the world.
These are often styled north and south because the division is geographic. Here is the greatest single problem and danger facing the world of the third millennium.” In this book review, I plan to talk about why it is geography is having an impact on poor people’s lives more than the rich such as how those living in disaster-vulnerable areas do not get as much help or improvements as a develop country would if struck by a catastrophe. Also, I will be talking about how big the gap between the rich and poor is and whether its growing or not according to the author who looks at this problem historically since the best and easiest way to understand this problem would be by asking why and how did we get to where we are
First, poverty is a main cause for civil wars. When in a country most of citizens have poor or low income it increase the civil war. As civil war in poorer countries like African countries or some of Asian countries where most of people are poor is more visible. And when the correlation between income and capital is low there is more likely risk of civil war and internal conflict ( Blattman and Miguel). The evidence show that relation between per capita income and civil war or have middle income still face visible civil war risk.
While the more advanced latent stage of the crisis with the threat of bankruptcy leads to the restrictive behaviour of suppliers and creditors, the manifested phase of the crisis notably declines strategic success factors. Furthermore, Hauschildt (2000) affirms that the causes of the crisis can be both internal and external. The external causes embrace market imbalance and changes, competitive pressure, currency collapse, high interest levels, the deregulation of key industries, insufficient government policy strategies, environmental changes, etc. On the contrary, internal causes are induced within the company, including managerial mistakes and incompetence, overestimation of possessed skills and control over particular procedures and events, or “blind” focus focus on growth. However, John, Lang and Netter (1992) found during their research that managers usually blame external factors as the main causes of the crisis, and seldom mention the managerial mistakes and fails as the root of the crisis.
The Conservatives, on the other hand, won 70, or 46%, of rural ridings, as defined by Maclean’s (Taylor-Vaisey, 2015). This was a downturn in Conservative election results in rural ridings, a bloc which has seen downturn in recent years. Perhaps this is connected to the increasing in commuting which is seen from rural to urban areas, and the further economic dependency which rural areas have on urban areas (Ali et al., 250, 2011). This is a possible consequence of urbanization, but there appears to be a lack of writing on the topic
It is generally difficult for children who have early left school to return even if the economic situation has improved. Still, worldwide agriculture is the largest employer of child labor. Vast majority of child labor is found in settings and informal urban economy. Thus poverty and lack of schools are 2 considered as the primary cause of child labor. However, looking at the history of child labor, it is evident that the incidence of child labor in the world decreased from 25% to 10% between 1960 and 2003, according to the World Bank.
Immigration Reform: Yes, or No Currently, there is constant dispute over the United States immigration system, pertaining to whether or not it should be reformed and if so how should it be done. Large uncontrolled immigrant population has begun to flourish in this nation due to flaws in the system. Another issue that has arisen in result of this faulty system is unsafe living conditions for both citizens and immigrants moving here. Adding to this, another controversial topic falling within the reforming of the system is its effect on employment rates. In this essay I will present a proposal telling of certain aspects of the system that are in dire need of reform.
Over the last two decades, numerous studies have shown that Aboriginal people in Canada face a substantial earnings gap in comparison to the non-Aboriginal population. Although some of these studies offer slightly different estimates of the wage differential due to different definitions of the Aboriginal population, they all consistently find that there is a positive relationship between the size of the earnings gap and the “degree of Aboriginal identification” (DeSilva, 1999). For men, there is a gap of 50.0% and for women, 34.2% (Lamb, 2013). A large portion of the differential can be explained by the fact that Aboriginal people have lower quality of characteristics that are associated with higher pay. However, most of these characteristics,
