Canadian Politics Labour Term Paper

… Canadian Politics/Labour

The postwar period represented an important challenge for the theorists as well the practitioners in the economic field. There have been wide debates on the actual structure that should be formed in order to cater for the needs of the economies throughout the world. Certain theories emerged that tried to take into account the necessities of each country as well as the necessities of a growing world economy. However, not all states were successful enough to consider all the aspects of their national economies. In this sense, some failed, while others gained increasing control over their own industrial potential and the regional one as well.

The postwar development of Canada tried to take a different approach. This is not necessarily due to the…. [read more]


Economic Growth in Canada Surged in the Late 19th and Early 20th Centuries Term Paper

… Economic Growth in Canada Surged in the Late 19th and Early 20th Centuries

The economic progress in any country depends on the land, the people, politics and the society that they live in. We shall assume that all men are equal as that is the accepted norm in the world today, at least among the educated and developed, though this feeling was not prevalent till some years ago. In terms of area, both the countries of United States and Canada are similar. The only difference that exists is that Canada is situated north of United States and that leads to the seasons being different and the crops cultivable in that region being different. Whether that makes much of a difference to economy, it would be…. [read more]


Canadian History Ten Thousand Years Term Paper

… In 1812, the United States declared war on its northern neighbors over a variety of gripes including the continued British insistence on searching American ships. In spite of some early victories for the American troops, the Canadian forces proved dominant. The war also helped solidify a Canadian national identity, as both French and English speakers took up arms against the Americans. However, Canadians grew increasingly weary of their lack of official self-governance. Rebellions in both Upper and Lower Canada culminated in the unification of those two regions, now called Canada West and Canada East, in the 1840 Act of Union.

Westward expansion as far as British Columbia and the resulting increase in territory demanded further efforts to unify all the British colonies north of the…. [read more]


Milestone 2 Business Recommendations Based on Economic Projections Research Paper

… ¶ … economic futures facing Larson Inc. are a U-shaped economy characterized by uncertainty; a V-shaped economy characterized by a sharp recovery and a W-shaped economy characterized by a double dip recession -- from the first of which we are just now emerging. The U-shaped economy is characterized by uncertainty -- the economy's future is relatively unknown. Economic recovery is delayed, leading to adverse consequences such as stagflation that gripped Japan in the early 1990s and lasted for several years. This possibility has the lowest probability of the three given that the GDP has increased strongly in each of the last two quarters, indicating that the economy has pulled out of the bottom of the U. already.

The GDP increases hint at a V-shaped recovery…. [read more]


Influence of American Culture and Economics on Canadian Politics Thesis

… ¶ … American Culture and Economics on Canadian Politics

Merelman notes that the question of culture's role in politics is not a new question. Plato expelled poets from his Republic for fear of their influence. Despite this ancient effort to eliminate cultural influence on politics, today its influence is far-reaching. No longer is just the poets shaping a country's political agenda, but television, magazines, textbooks, corporations, music, movies, books, and the list goes on and on. In addition, the cultural influence of one country does not always simply stay within its own national borders, but its influence can reach beyond into other countries. However, it is not simply culture that can manipulate politics but economics as well.

The old adage -- 'Money makes the world…. [read more]


International Trade of Canadian Lumber Research Paper

… International Trade of Canadian Lumber

The contemporaneous society is characterized by a series of elements, such as the opening of boundaries to international trade or the massive advent of technology, which has come to impact virtually all life activities. Aside from these however, a more concerning characteristic which is common in the modern day society is given by the threat of environmental instability.

Global warming is becoming more and more present and the risks it poses for humanity call for an integrated action. Problems which contribute to environmental instability include actions such as higher levels of consumption, increased dump of industrial waste in waters and other fields or high levels of deforestations. The impacts are disastrous and include sky rocking levels of pollution, the death…. [read more]


Globalization and the Canadian Public Sector Research Paper

… Canada Globalization

Globalization and Canadian Free Trade Policy

The debate over globalization is one which has occupied market theorists, politicians and the working class alike for generations. However, in the post-Cold War era, the recalibration of world markets and political relationships has instigated the breakdown of barriers to the thorough implementation of free trade. Under the philosophical banner of globalization and taking the form of economic alliances crossing over international borders, thus removing the obstructions of international duties and other domestic market protections, free trade has been a primary determinant in the relationship which currently binds and frustrates Canadian-United States relations. As examined in the C.D. Howe Institute's March 2006 article "Steer or Drift? Taking Charge of Canada-U.S. Regulatory Convergence" by Michael Hart, the breakdown…. [read more]


Public Policy Towards Business Term Paper

… Canadian Economy

In recent years, Canada's economy has quickly developed into an international leader. Even the Canadian Dollar has eclipsed the United States Dollar in might. The question is, what is the cause of Canada's robust economy? One major contributing factor is the role of international business, whether that be imports, exports or buyouts. The increase in international takeovers in Canada cannot be ignored as a reason for the economic turnaround, however, there is the lingering question of whether or not this increase in international takeovers is actually hollowing out the Canadian economy and, if so, will this eventually set the economy heading in the reverse direction.

This paper will examine these questions. First, an overview of the Canadian economy will be presented. Second, an…. [read more]


Origins, History of the IMF Term Paper

… SRF: Supplemental Reserve Facility loans are to be repaid within a year and a half, and there is a substantial surcharge of 3-5 percentage points.

CCL: This is under the same repayment criteria as SRF, but the surcharge is less (1.5 to 3.5 percentage points).

CFF: This type of loan was designed to help a country experiencing a very sudden "shortfall" in export earnings (caused by world commodity fluctuations), and the financial terms match those of the SBA (except CCF loans have no surcharge).

In the event of a nation suffering a natural disaster like an earthquake, flood, typhoon, or other calamities, or for a country just emerging from war, the IMF provides "Emergency Assistance" loans. They are subject to the basic rate of charge,…. [read more]


Effects of Economic Recession Thesis

… Recession

The recent economic downturn has impacted different nations in different ways. Each nation's specific characteristics contribute to the degree to which the recession impacts it. Canada, for example, has suffered because of its dependence on exports to the U.S., but at the same time it has not suffered much because strength in its financial system essentially eliminated the possibility of an economy-crippling credit crunch (Zakaria, 2009). The economy of Greece has seen strong impacts of recession because that economy's inherent weakness and lack of strong governance was exposed when the recession hit key European trade partners (Flynn, 2008). In the developing world, impacts have been similarly different India's key economic drivers are tied to the global economic system, resulting in that nation struggling through…. [read more]


George Magnus Is a Leading Term Paper

… Even though, the crisis in 2008 didn't led to a collapse of the capitalism. The way Marx analyzed the misunderstandings between the labor and capital and it causing political and economical unrest politically. Where Smith was sure that public institutions were necessary to good working economy, Magnus didn't agree with notion. As mentioned earlier, Magnus is more inclined towards Marx's economist theories as opposed to Smiths. In his opinion, the economic crisis of 2008 revealed due to the environment created in different economies simultaneously. The house hold debt to GDP augmented and kept on increasing.

The theories and works of Magnus are strongly affected by and are somewhat in favor of Marx's work as well. Just as Marx pointed out, there would be conflict between…. [read more]

Nigeria: Economic and Human Health Term Paper

… Abraham Nwankwo, is the size of the domestic debt being serviced by the federal government (Amaefule, 2013). Current plans are to shift a portion of this debt to external loans, a move which the World Bank seems to support (World Bank, 2013). Lending by multilateral lending institutions like the World Bank is therefore having a positive impact on Nigeria's economy and social programs, at least for the time being.

Nigeria's economy can be strengthened in a number of ways by improving the health of the populace. The water supply in Nigeria is improving, but only 95% and 57% of private and government sources of water, respectively, are considered safe (World Bank Group et al., 2008). Access to medical services is also extremely limited and many…. [read more]


Economics of NAFTA Term Paper

… pcc.edu/~rwolf/Globalnotes.html)." President Bush is so supportive of this act that he is expected to "request 'fast track' approval to push it through, meaning that when it comes a vote, senators must vote yea or no and have no input into the document. It is reported that several other 'attractive' pieces of legislation will most likely be 'bundled' with the FTAA to ensure its approval. The Summit of the Americas voted to implement FTAA by 2005 (spot.pcc.edu/~rwolf/Globalnotes.html)."

Conclusion

When NAFTA was first introduced, it was expected to increase jobs and reduce tariffs, thus improving the economies of the North American countries of Canada, Mexico, and the United States. However, since its inception, NAFTA has failed at a number of its goals, prompting revisions and a new…. [read more]


Canadian Economic History Term Paper

… ¶ … foreign direct investment was a necessary precondition for Canadian economic development. In the opinion of this author, foreign direct investment (FDI) was not only the necessary precondition for economic development, but also the necessary precondition for Canada's existence first as a British colony and later as a sovereign member of the British Commonwealth. The pattern of British FDI set the pattern for the U.S. And later the globalist model for FDI in Canada.

As will be noted, France's reality as a continental power that was less dependent upon maritime made her colonies less of an economic than as a military and religious imperative. Indeed, the period of the beginning British ascendance was laid down with the establishment of the Hudson Bay Company came…. [read more]

Canadian National Identity Essay

… Until this there was no other identity Canada had, except being called as a British colony. As stated by Grant, the intention of many Canadians was to have a different identity from United States, in terms of religion, education, politics, and socialism (Grant, 1965).

As Canadians were searching for a different cultural identity, Hockey provided a platform for it. It was begun when the Canadian team competed in the Vancouver Winter Olympics. It unified the whole nation, and the Canadian team grabbed recognition from throughout the world. Ice hockey is a traditional game, played by men, and since it has masculine roles, it simultaneously attracts other men as well. This role played by Ice hockey is crucial, as it contributed a lot in creating a…. [read more]

Economic Environment of the Diamond Essay

… For both nations to mitigate the risk of turning into a purely commodity-driven economy that must eventually rely on unethical labor to attain its ends (as is the case in Sierra Leone) (Economist, 2000) the judicious and effective management of MNC investment is critical. Table 1, Comparing Mozambique and Tanzania Economic Factors, shows comparisons of economic metrics over time and the forecasted values as based on the CIA Factbook data as the baseline. The political instability of Mozambique is a critical issue today and must be dealt with urgently through MNC-based programs that deliver on CSR-based goals.

Police Management: Throughout History Research Paper

… The challenge associated with the difficulty in investigating these crimes is that they can be perpetrated in a jurisdiction that is outside where the crime occurs. In addition to this, there are challenges associated with investigating these offenses since criminal organizations are becoming more sophisticated and increasingly knowledgeable in their use of new technologies.

The other challenge for law enforcement managers because of globalization is that these managers are finding it difficult to provide police officers with the necessary resources for fighting crime effectively (Viau, n.d.).

Canada-u.S. Relations for the Canadian Public Research Paper

… Canada-U.S. Relations

For the Canadian public, the United States is widely perceived as an intrusive, aggressive, and increasingly reactionary bully. For the Canadian Government, the United States is perceived more as a force of nature, an absolute global hegemon providing stability and promoting prosperity, whose needs must be met even at the cost of Canadian national pride. This view was particularly evident during the 2004-2008 period when the two countries were led by Conservatives, who readily acquiesce to the rules of naked power. However, Canadian Liberals are willing to defy American demands at times, although never to the point of recklessness. This applies even if the U.S. president is a Democrat, as President Obama has discovered.

While the recession and terrorism limit the President's discretion…. [read more]


Political Economy Camada Global Think Tanks Term Paper

… ¶ … Tanks Application to Real-World Economics

Study of Three Think Tanks

The Canadian economy is undoubtedly heading for recession. According to the April 2008 Economy in Brief, released by the Department of Finance each quarter, symptoms reeked of the adverse political condition, in which the business cycle has experienced a downturn for two consecutive periods. According to the brief statement, the employment rate lingered at its 33-year low of 5.8%; and the GDP growth rate of 0.8% was the slowest growing GDP since 2003. As the GDP growth rate slowly climbs, the rate of domestic demand is not waiting for it. Instead, the domestic demand boomed at 6.9%, the highest it has been in 11 years (Economy in Brief).

Public Finance and Legislative Procedures Essay

… Social Security in the U.S.: Better than CPP and OAS?

According to a 2009 poll by the National Academy for Social Insurances, 2/3 of Americans would choose to strengthen the United States' Social Security System over using its revenues to balance the national deficit (Leigh, 2010). Given the volatile state of the economy and the recent decrease in the international credit standing of the United States, the overwhelming support for bolstering a program that assists the elderly and the disabled demonstrates the exigence of such a program to protect workers in their retirement or in their time of medical need. Contrast this need, though, with the findings from the Cato Institute regarding the solvency of the U.S. Social Security System:

The Social Security system will…. [read more]

Arctic Security Threats and Canadian Government Essay

… ¶ … National Security

The Canadian government's response to Arctic's security

The Canadian government is one of the powers that have exercised their sovereignty and security strength in matters of the Arctic. In the Canadian Arctic, the governance system has done enough to ensure its borders are well protected through a peaceful process of devolving territories from the ever evolving arctic region. The government of Canada has been effective in securing its place in the arctic region, and the federal government hardly diminishes sovereignty of Canada as a state when it transfers power to the major territories; Nunavut, the Yukon and Northwest Territories.

From Time Immemorial Term Paper

… Umpteen cities, counties, land attributes and other landscapes mirror the significance of salt. Salt, as a matter of fact, has many applications. Some intricacies applying salt such as generation of "salt prints" in 19th Century photography have been surpassed by new technologies- while others have not.

Salt is even related to the tussle for women's rights in the U.S. (The salt industry)

It is located from 74 to 81N, above the Arctic Circle, and as such is the most northerly populated locality in Europe, and the northernmost civilian locality in the world -- Canada has permanent military settlements further north.
