necessary decision by the highest authorities represents the first step in transforming reality. This makes it necessary to constantly monitor the implementation of decisions, the flow of specific processes in society. 62.Explain the Anti-globalisation activists position that globalisation generates more inequality. In May, the National Bureau of Economic Research, the largest economic research organization in the United States, whose members are many chairmen of the Council of Economic Advisers and Nobel laureates in economics, said that "recent globalization trends have increased US inequality through a disproportionate increase in income." 63.Consider the Globalisation defenders position that it is proving to be a great levelling force between the world’s rich and poor. Globalization and inequality are two rather burning topics in the discussion of many domestic and foreign researchers. Some people say that globalization is a great force for equating the poor and the rich. 64.Why hunger, malnutrition and famine are major global sources of poor health” they are not new problems, but long standing issues.

Malnutrition lack of proper nutrition, caused by not having enough to eat, not eating enough of the right things, or being unable to use the food that one does eat. Famine is extreme scarcity of food. Malnutrition is a key dimension of global hunger. 65.Famine and hunger are the result of a combination of natural and social forces. What does it mean? Famines are sustained, extreme shortages of food among discrete populations sufficient to cause high rates of mortality. Signs and symptoms of prolonged food deprivation include loss of fat and subcutaneous tissue, depression, apathy, and weakness, which progress to immobility and death of the individual, often from superimposed respiratory or other infections. The social consequences of famines are disruption from mass migrations of people in search of food, breakdown of social behavior, abandonment of cooperative effort, loss of personal pride and sense of family ties, and finally a struggle for individual survival. Famines have been common ever since the development of agriculture made human settlements possible. 66.Examine the problem that countries affected by famine and starvation are, for the most part, too poor to pay for new technologies that would increase their food production. Stephen Devereux (Stephen Devereux), the author of many studies on the causes of famine, in 2000 published an article entitled “Famine in the 20th century” (Famine in the Twentieth Century) [12], in which he pays special attention to the situation in Africa, where By the way, most cases of hunger occur. According to him, in this region of the world, armed conflicts are the main cause of hunger, which destroy agriculture and lead to chaos in the food delivery systems from outside. Devereaux sums up that "hunger arises only because no one has tried to prevent it - it is allowed to appear." 67.Describe the problem of education and literacy as important routes to economic development, when lower-income countries are disadvantaged.

    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.
