I am trying to conclude that data analysis plays a huge role and can be widely and greatly used in the financial, economic and social development of a nation. Child labour is a huge obstacle that almost every nation in the process of development is facing today. Now, the question is, can microinsurance be implemented in such a manner as to actually reduce the
The Guardian (2013) reports that nearly 800 people have been injured in Bangladesh in the last 12 months and these cases are unreported fires in the garment and textile industry. But it could be possible that many more accidents may not be reported and the injuries figure could be higher. The lack of adequate fire alarms, fire escape exits, fire aid and fire-fighting equipment make it even a more dangerous place to work in. It shows that working in an unsafe environment is life threatening to the people. In order to survive they are left with no choice but to risk their life daily to work in the hazardous
Bangladesh stock market is not a mature one and still at an early stage of growth with a small market share relative to GDP and is characterized by low liquidity and high market concentration (Bepari and Mollik, 2008). Moreover, it is experiencing thin and nonsynchronous trading, a limited number of mutual funds and institutional investors, weak supervision of stock exchange, nonenforcement of regulations, frequent changes of policies and preference for short-term returns by the investors. As a consequence, in the last two decades, Bangladesh stock market has experienced two massive price falls in 1996 and 2010-11. Specifically, during the sample period, Bangladesh stock market witnessed a most volatile episode which is known as Bangladesh stock market debacle of 2010-2011. Identification of the debacle period is important because it can influence the risk-return trade-off and behavior of the stock market of Bangladesh.
Poverty estimation study by Oxford University declared that Bangladesh is the third poorest country in South Asia. Several interventions have been prepared in order to eradicate poverty in Bangladesh. Among all Microcredit is one of the most effective ones. In 2006, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Dr. Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank for taking the initiative to create economic and social development by providing the opportunity of Microcredit in Bangladesh. The causes and consequences of poverty Poverty is one of the critical problems that are endlessly impacting condition of Bangladesh from decades.
Among them, more than 55% live within 100 km of 710 km long from the coastal belt . Most of the people always fight with poverty as their livelihood generally depends on weather and natural resources. And this type of people specifically exposed to the threat of cyclones and storm surges. Bangladesh has 12 out of 19 coastal districts directly exposed to the sea . Because of that reason, large-scale displacement occurred during the period of natural hazards.
The fisherman of Bangladesh earns their livelihood by fishing in these rivers. They are entirely dependent on these rivers for their living. Rivers come to our use in many ways. We bathe in river water and drink it. They help to promote trade and commerce.
3.2 Socio-Economic Status In Bangladesh socio-cultural and economic conditions tend to put women in a less favourable position. That is said, women in Bangladesh are certainly not a homogenous group. They are of different classes, such as rich, middle class and poor and they come from various cultural and ethnic minority groups. In a male dominant society, like Bangladesh, the status of women depends on the gender though women are playing an important role in the society. The girl children often suffer the worst kind of discrimination with respect to such basic human necessities such as intra household distribution of food, clothes and access to education (Islam, 2007, p.27).
Bangladesh is a developing country. It is bigger than other countries considering its population. Bangladesh is plagued with different social problems which are very common phenomena in this country. Child/early marriage, poverty, drug-addiction, eve- teasing, dowry and oppression on women are few of them. Early marriage has been an endemic phenomenon in our country which ensues from Poverty, eve-teasing, prejudices, lack of social consciousness.
