Show that you understand what this theory means by discussing its implications regarding family structure and relations and demographic innovators. Be sure to include an example and discuss it in depth. 2: this is an opinion question in which you must support your position with logical thought and information from Annika’s presentation on Monday, February 25 th . Make a case for or against the Peace Corps: Is it a good thing that Americans are going to other parts of the world to teach English and share American culture and do what is needed to help others OR is the United States simply drawing the people of these countries into the world system? 3: Discuss the Malthusian perspective of population growth and show that you understand what this means by relating it to examples. What are the problems with this theory? 4: What is Demographic Transition theory? How is it similar to neo-Malthusian theory? How is it different from neo-Malthusian theory? What are the problems with this model? Be specific. 5: What is ethnocentrism? What is cultural relativism? In what ways does the Peace Corps encourage ethnocentrism and/or cultural relativism?

For example, in Japan, a nuclear family has increased since the growth of the economy after World War II. Young people go to big cities to get a good job, and they get married and have family. However, compared to their hometown, as all the prices such as housing, food, and clothing are high, they cannot afford to bring up many children. As a result, they have one or two children. In addition, recently women have many opportunities to get jobs, and they continue their jobs after marring. They want to live it up even if they marry, and their offices and cities have a little day nursery. Japanese economy is recovering, but they always feel slightly uneasy as it is likely that they are fired when our businesses are worse. Because of these, they have a tendency to have little children, and our population begins decreasing in the near future though there is one of the countries where many people live to an advanced age. 2:
