William Boas Central Asia Questions 1. All powerful and prosperous nations have access to shoreline or a large body of water. Without it, a nation is at a huge disadvantage opposed to a nation with it. A nation without access to maritime trade routes, a country must be almost entirely self-sufficient. Central Asia doesn’t nearly have enough resources or fertile soil to accomplish that. Therefore, they must import foreign goods from overseas. Because they don’t have these trade routes readily available, they don’t have access to these foreign goods. As a result, their economies will suffer, as will standard of living and technological advances. Central Asia will not be able to advance with the rest of the world because it doesn’t have the money or the manpower. To me, the future does not look bright for Central Asia. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
