As human beings we always want more and more. There is no limit to how much we want and business executives have realized this. They want that greed that they helped develop within us to come out and buy all of their products, sustaining that it’s good for our economy, but it is good for our health? There is no benefit in consuming more products to stabilize our economy and allow business owners to gain more wealth, if the consumer is also gaining vast health risks with the purchase of these products. Over the last couple of years, the United States has, not only, become the most obese country in the world, but also has a large increase in health problems such as heart attacks, diabetes, high blood pressure, and strokes.
The fact that Wal-Mart is a company not even a country; and is China’s eighth largest trading partner; just makes us realize how much economic growth depends on businesses to produce more goods and services faster and more efficiently. According to many economists, continuous economic growth leads to greater prosperity for everyone, but because so many countries are trying to achieve the same exact thing, competition is harsh. These are some positive and negative perspectives that are caused by international trade. As you can see, the relationship between the three sources is that they are all based on trade. All around the world, different countries import and export goods to each other so they can benefit themselves with economic growth.
Its no surprise that China is one of the most Industrialistic country with over 1, 330, 044, 544 people ( as of July 2008 Source: www.google.com ) which in my scientific analysis says nearly 700, 000, 000 are in the work force and within nearly 100, 000, 000 or less (much, much less) are in agriculture or livestock. Thus this is how China has become one of the worlds super powers. When you look at the numbers it makes no sense. But to a economist (or a really smart person ) the meaning is clear. More people = more workers = more money.

Another huge issue is the whole unemployment rate. I think the cause is that all these top name companies are going global and are government is approving all of this, and the thing is the government knows that they are only looking for cheap labor. So they moved all the factories out of America to China, India, Japan, Korea, and many more. These top companies are just money hungry where every they see money is where they go, they don’t care if they move a factory/ shut it down from one place to another because no matter where they go it will make

Having such a small amount of people possessing such a large amount of the wealth will pull down society. Our biggest private employer, Walmart, the “Union-busting low-wage retail empire happens to have generated a $200 billion family fortune”, while, not even paying their workers a living wage. People having accumulated all this wealth then use it to pay off politicians to vote and write bills in their favor. America would be better off with the upper class being flushed out of our system.
