Now we can compare Japan’s chart of cotton yarn (Document 2) with India’s cloth textiles. (Document 2) shows that Japan is quickly entering the textile marker by its great increase in pounds of yarn made. This is due to the increased use of machines in Japanese textile making. An additional document would be useful by separating Document 2 in to two documents one being Hand spun yarn and the other being machine spun. It would be easier to compare and accurately account the increase of mechanization in japan’s textile industry.
The length of railway tracks in Russia increased form 31219 miles in 1891 to 58392 miles by 1904. In the same time period, Russia’s coal production increased from 6.01 million tonnes to 18.67 million tonnes. This shows how the government’s investment in expanding and modernizing the country’s railways resulted in significant economic gains. This was a result of an increased ability to transport raw materials to areas with the greatest population, such as the area surrounding St Petersburg. The railways, particularly the Trans-Siberian railway, also gave Eastern Russia a link to Europe and Western Russia a link to the Pacific Ocean, which made it easier to export Russian goods.

I think that the most major demographic change in Texas over the years would definitely have to be population growth. Texas is fast growing and we are a very diverse area. Many rural areas are becoming urban areas and it seems like is happening quickly. The population growth can be credited to three major factors: natural increase due to the difference between births and deaths; international immigration; and domestic immigration.

The U.S. Hispanic population is the largest minority segment and is growing at a dramatic rate which has already occurred in the most populous states and is beginning to occur among the U.S. baby population. The future U.S. economy will depend on Hispanics by virtue of demographic change and the social and cultural shifts expected to accompany their continued growth. The growth in the marketing of fast food and groceries to the growing Hispanic population is something that marketers need to acknowledge in order to serve the interests of these consumers. The Hispanic population is projected to nearly triple, from 46.7 million to 132.8 million from 2008 to 2050. This means that the U.S. Hispanic population shares will double from 15% to 30% and nearly one in three U.S. residents would be Hispanic.
