Geography Practice Questions 1. Explain the changing relationship between regional centres and small towns Previously, regional centres and small towns worked in harmony. The regional centres provided the services that small towns did not have and vice versa. However, regional centres are growing with the expense of the small town. Services in regional centres are incentivising the large movement of populations away from small towns.
Therefore manufacturers make bigger profit. As well as that, there are fewer factory regulations at sweatshops because the health and safety regulations aren’t as important in LEDC’s, that way it makes it cheaper to run the factory. As well as that, renting and buying the factory is cheaper too because the economy of LEDCS are weak the demand of buying property is low because not many people can afford it therefore buildings and houses are worth less because of low demand. Another reason clothes are manufactured in LEDCs is because there is less tax to foreign government, therefore there is a bigger profit for the manufacturers. Because LEDCs have a weak economy, there are very few
New technology has changed the Pyrmont community, because it is able to open up new jobs, but also causes decline in jobs that are already there. Such as in the 1980s when the large freight industry was moved out of Pyrmont, due to the improvement of cargo ships, which enable more stocks to be transported, but could no longer fit in the docks of Pyrmont. These caused thousands of residents to leave Pyrmont in search of jobs that were lost at the docks, with thousands of men gone, businesses around Pyrmont quickly followed, as they made no money were they were. The development of transport has also changed Pyrmont, with more frequent services, many people living outside Pyrmont are still able to work there, getting there either by train, bus, taxis or car. New technology also changes work patterns in Pyrmont.
For younger Kristangs from low-income families, this has meant a greater interaction with people outside the Kristang community. Similarly, since the late 1970s, there has been a growth of restaurant businesses within Padri sa Chang, which has provided work for young Kristangs and also has brought a constant flow of outsiders, tourists and locals, into the community. These local developments have led to a significant improvement in the socioeconomic level of Padri sa Chang and also to far greater exposure to English and Malay than previously. However, by far the most significant recent socioeconomic changes came about as the result of an environmental issue. Since the end of the 1970s, the Kristang communities of the Bandar Hilir area of Malacca have been progressively affected by a land reclamation project along the Hilir foreshore.
Waterways were also a way for transportation, to cut out a lot of land, and cut out time. Waterways are a faster way for trade and barter. Steam boats were what pioneers used to travel down the waterways to trade and sell goods. Railroads were still used for closer travel, with items that did not need to get there as fast as possible, because railroad cars do not move very fast, although the steam engine improved the speed of transportation also. The United States did make rather large changes over 100 years, from 1776 to 1870.
(Tuchman, 38) The middle or working class was very small, so they did not have much influence on society. (Gottfreid, pg.17) As the wealth of the Nobles and Landowners grew, so did improvements in trade. More routes were opening, and ships from all around the world with lots of cargo were being swapped in Europe. With this increase in trade came the boost in the exchange of people, goods, ideas; and disease. (Zahler, pg.
P1 * People in lower socioeconomic groups have less opportunities People in lower socio-economic groups do not have as much education as the upper class. It is also unlikely they will have private healthcare and lower socioeconomic groups are not likely to have as good quality food as the people higher up. This is because healthy food with better quality tends to be more expensive. Lower socioeconomic groups are also less likely to have as much leisure activities. This is because they have not got much money and leisure activities cost a lot.
The mix of immigrant and different ethnicity working together created what makes Hawaii so diverse and unique today. Immigration has been and continues to be a great importance to Hawaii’s social, economic, and political life. At the time the economy of Hawaii was bombing from the profit of goods from the plantations, with the increase of profit they need more workers to work. Plantations would grow rapidly and to speed up the process of harvesting crops and good, with the low amount of people on Hawaii the plantation owner sought for new workers that would work for lower pay, this lead them to go for foreigners. When Hawaiian plantations began to increase, there was a dyer need in labor force needed to be imported.
Negative public perceptions of this process can sometimes trump private or public efforts to revitalize communities. Nearly anywhere one turns in the United States, especially in the older communities of the North East and South, has a case of economies and employment rates suffering the most from post-industrial globalization era. This is due to the concept of using gentrification as a means to economic development has become so popular and
Industrialization was booming after the Civil War, but a change in weather patterns in the early 1890’s began to devastate agricultural communities. This in turn led to a downward spiral in profits for those that manufactured farming equipment.6 As demand was reduced in the United States, these manufactures began to look for foreign markets that had a need for the equipment that was being produced. The annexation of the tropical island nations after the war provided new markets for the American made goods to be exported. Cuba also held a great economic advantage for American sugar interest. Although a large investment had been made in sugar and other trade exports, the outsourcing of crops that could be grown in the United States was popular amongst the populace of the United
