Businesses including hotel investments are facing difficult situations in the world today (Rohan, 2008). Terrorism has both direct and indirect effects on businesses; losses of life and property, decrease in foreign investment, disruption in supply chain, among many other effects were examples of direct impact of terrorism (Czinkota, Knight, Liesch & Steen, 2010). Terrorist attacks also have an indirect effect on the hotel investment which is mainly psychological effect on people (Greenbaum, Dugan & Lafree, 2007). There are other impacts of terrorism on international hotel investment which cannot be overlooked which includes loss of employment, cost of rescue, cleaning and rebuilding the facility, loss of confidence and sense of insecurity in the region where the attack occur (Greenbaum et al,2007; Paul, Bugnar & Mester
The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless. Hitler had become a chancellor in January 1933 but the people did not want him as thier chancellor (Colbert 2) The Natzis killed 11 million people in total and 6 million Jews were dead and the population was hit so much it almost decreased half the population (Metzer 89). At last the Germans surrendered and ended World War 2 on May 8th and let peace arise (Metzer
The main internal reasons for the decline were economic problems and political issues.The economic problems started when Inflation began causing people to go back to bartering as I was told by my fellow classmate’s website. These economic problems let urban life decline and for trade to be lost. My classmate’s website on the Roman Empire also informed me that there were political issues when Julius Caesar was assassinated which led to a 13-year civil war. The political problems which were mostly caused by power not being in one place for too long, and the economic problems were caused by inflation which made Rome poor, eventually led to the fall of the Roman
However, the long-term dominance of one state attracts other competitors and weakens the stable international regime. The world’s unstable system seems to develop towards multiplicity. Modelski (1978) explained that the continuous growing superpower will lead to monopolistic competition, what system is a dangerous global system. The factor that is most likely to damage the global stability is the unbalanced development of the power among international partners. These growing differences of capability will result in the redistribution of
Over tourism in the Mediterranean region is a modern issue which threatens to disturb long established cultural traditions and act as a gentrifying force for locals who can not or will not leave. A problem which negatively impacts locals and tourists alike, over tourism can be described as when there are enough tourists or when tourism is managed poorly enough that quality of life experiences substantial deterioration. In a world where globalization is overtaking local traditions despite the want for cultural integrity, people can be easily angered by the flocks of foreigners (often overpopulating locals) who cause cultural appropriation, congestion, public disruptions, and many other negative lifestyle changes. The rising middle class worldwide has presented an opportunity for more and more tourists to travel abroad and negatively impact an increasing amount of destinations. Connected by cruise ship routes, Mediterranean/Adriatic cities with unsustainable tourism such as Barcelona, Spain, Venice, Italy, and Dubrovnik, Croatia regularly experience protests and political turmoil as a result of the mass influx of travelers.
Technology associated with globalization has enabled terrorist groups to conduct operations that are more lethal, dispersed, and challenging to combat than previously discovered. Terrorism leads to instability in an international system and causes fear to spread throughout these areas. Terrorist attacks are intended to apply sufficient pressures to a government so that it grants political concessions, but it results in economic losses and destroys relationships among nations in the international structure. Although the motives of terrorists may differ, their actions follow a standard pattern with terrorist incidents assuming a variety of forms: airplane hijackings, kidnappings, assassinations, threats, bombings, and suicide attacks. Terrorism severely damages state substructure like transportation networks or financial institutions, and weakens assurance in the state 's ability to defend its citizens.
In Egypt the pull factors would be the mysterious history and culture, especially on tourism. If we look thing in different angles there will be different answer, in the perspective of a Libya refugee the pull factor would be safe envirment. The push factor of Egypt would be the security problem. The crime rate in Egypt is very high, it is a very unsafe envirment. And also, Egypt now is experiencing a coup, so it won’t be a good time to go to Egypt now.
Every country implements some barriers for trade. The main reason is that there is a big competition by foreign firms. The politicians create a policy which could protect companies in home country from that competition. There are several methods of restricting trade: Quotas: It is a limit of quantity of goods that can be imported. Quotas restrict supply and it increase domestic price of goods.
There 's no doubt, that terrorist attacks have a huge impact on the world. "These recent acts of violence are beginning to take a toll on the travel industry. About 10% of American travelers have canceled a trip in response to the terror attacks, eliminating a potential $8.2 billion in travel spending. In a survey of about 1,100 people, nearly one quarter of those said they had delayed travel plans and 187 said they had switched their plans to a destination that they considered safer" (Burke). The bad usually outweighs the good, but in some ways, terrorism is bringing the community together.
Terrorism breeds an environment of despair, oppression and underdevelopment. It profits from the existence of weak states that lack the capacity to enforce law and order, and it flourishes in contexts of foreign occupation and regional instability. The terrorist attacks on US soil on 11 September 2001 highlighted the failure of states and security institutions to accompany and identify the global changes in the nature of threats. Technological advances that changed the way people communicate, the speed of information-sharing, rapid transportation and the erosion of borders have come to expose a larger amount of people to the great danger of terror campaigns. These innovations, designed to improve daily life, also mean that small groups of people without the support of a state or territory can inflict greater amounts of damage by transforming them into sophisticated instruments of aggression.
