The reason for why governments in developing countries sometimes are unable or unwilling to implement polices that create favorable conditions for economic growth boils down to two main reasons: social issues and political issues. Political issues are just as multifaceted as the social issues. Due to corrupt governments and regimes the lawlessness spreads throughout the developing nation like wildfire. Political issues revolve around the basic needs of a nation such as simple, yet, necessary infrastructure of schools, hospitals, septic tanks, etc. The necessity of public goods is vital for a developing country to survive, maintain, and become what we consider today, a developed country.
People themselves have become their own threat to this needed connection of community. Due to the strategic efforts to privatize government entities have further weakened the core of democracy. Social programs that aid in learning to become affective and positive citizens of a community are limited. Due to the closure and the militarizing of public spaces has diversity in the community limited, locale and grouped. Loosing this vital tool of building citizenship within a community is jeopardized.
This loan led to a widening in the gap between the rich and the poor which became increasingly apparent due to Benin accepting the SAP. Another key problem with top down development strategies is the fact that they look for large scale solutions rather than directing their schemes to the specific needs of the poor. By adopting these plans, this can reinforce the stigma that government only introduce these top down schemes for economic development as opposed to the requirements of the public. However, while there is definitive evidence of how top down
It is unreasonable to require a corporation to restrict genuine uses to prevent misuse and it is not fair to consumers who will pay the price for either higher substitutes or additives measured by manufacturers. Even if it takes these measures it would not change the basics that lead to addiction. If we talk about the children who were affected by the habit of sniffing the glue, children can understand what is right and wrong and that they are the part of the company. We also know that Fuller had poor social conditions in Honduras and Guatemala more than likely are the major contributing factor towards this type
Increasingly as children in modern society are becoming more rebellious and independent and construct their own individual identities, many people argue that the peer they socialise with have the greatest effect on their behaviour. This idea is debateable however, as there are other institutions like the media or the family that are key in instilling norms and values of society. The ways in which peer groups socialise a person into his/her gender identity are many. Through peer group pressure along with positive and negative sanctions, it is inevitable that a young person will conform to their group’s norms and values. Firstly, the ideas of being isolated from a friendship group is a daunting vision for many youngsters, and are thus willing to adopt the groups norms and values if it means they will acquire popularity or just to be part of a group.
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to show how Generation X has entered the workforce which has defined its processes and procedures around the Baby Boom and the Silent Generation. Generation X was raised differently than the generations before them and have achieved higher levels of education, independence and technical savvy, because of that “business as usual” does not satisfy them. Researching what fulfills the needs of generation X, clearly points to changes that have occurred and need to occur in the way managers run their businesses. These changes include implementing work-life balances, rewards and promotions, and creating environments that challenge and utilize their unique independent and creative spirits. While much has been accomplished by organizations, there is still much that needs to be done now and in the future.
She believes that instead of the native population benefiting from the opportunities presented in factory jobs, the corporations do no more than to promote subjection and even brutality toward the female populace in an effort to make them presentably docile and work hungry for the world market. While both essays make valid arguments both in favour and against globalization, it seems evident that Ehrenreich's case is more compelling and effective in convincing the reader that the negative aspects outweigh the little good achieved. In "The Noble Feat of Nike", Johan Norberg makes his case by talking about the work conditions of the Nike sweatshops and the average worker's opinion on such. He does well in explaining the point of view of these citizens of developing countries when he speaks to a woman about what life was like before the factories came and the way some of their fellow Vietnamese are still forced to work.

Society often confuses the problem of youth, with the problem of the young working class. Discuss using at least two sociological research studies. Youth studies has undergone a slight change since the 1980’s where the main focus was youth culture, this has been superseded by youth transitions into the labour market as unemployment has increased (Shildrick and MacDonald, 2006). There is an evident divide in the study of youth between structural and cultural analysis (Hollands, 2002), Miles (2000) sees the structural aspect to be dependent on personal circumstances or experiences of inequality and social class but criticises the cultural approach to youth as being based on a notion that sees young people as predominantly rebellious and problematic. In order to understand the societal view of youth one must define the problem, in post-modern subcultural studies the problem refers to: crime, unemployment, style, attitude and educational underachievement.
The media is known to represent young people in particular set ways, and it can be argued that the mass media only represents young people as being a problem group. However, this view ignores all of the positive ways in which young people are portrayed, and the ways in which media content is aimed towards young people. According to source C, young people are often represented as being a source of social problems. Activities frequently enjoyed by young people, such as playing video games and drinking with friends, are often totally demonised by the media. This results in extreme and inaccurate views of the activities of young people, that often relies upon scare tactics and the over exaggeration of rare news stories in order to make such activities seem worse than they are.
If we are an individualistic society (Hofstede) our ever increasing uptake of technology may impact negatively on our levels of literacy and numeracy. This lack of core skills may appear as something akin to indifference in our youth. Individualistic societies often exhibit signs like self-centered citizens, employees with low levels of employer loyalty and they are often peopled by individuals who are intent on their own personal goals rather than collective or egalitarian goals. Does this sound like our youth? Ask yourself if you have the following: a mobile phone, a PC, a Laptop, a widescreen TV or your pay electronically lodged into a bank account.
