Literacy improves the development of the wider community The positive knock-on effect of educating girls can be seen in the wider social and economic benefits yielded for their communities. Increasing the emphasis towards women’s education positively impacts on each generation through raised expectations and increased self-esteem. Improving literacy facilitates employment whereby both males and females can contribute, helping the wider economy and community to thrive. 68.Explain the statement: most China experts agree on one thing: when China, with its 1,3 billion people, fully enters the global capitalist system, its impact will be felt around the world. it is quite possible. Since China has 1.3 million populations, this can affect globalization worldwide. 69.Consider the fact: the Russian economy, in its move from socialism to capitalism, has encountered many problems, leaving many Russians poorer than before. During the Soviet era the factory had been not only a place of work but was also often the base of social services, providing benefits such as child care, vacations, and housing.In 1995 the government, through loans secured from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and through income from the sale of oil and natural gas, succeeded in stabilizing the national currency by establishing a ruble corridor. Having played a key role in defeating the attempted coup against Gorbachev in 1991, Yeltsin saw his popularity surge. A skillful politician, he was first elected president of the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic in 1991 before the collapse of the U.S.S.R, and he was reelected in 1996. Post-Soviet Russia emerged with formidable ethnic problems. Many of the autonomous ethnic regions that were part of the empire—formed before 1917—no longer wished to be under Russian hegemony, and ethnic Russians comprised less than four-fifths of the population of the Russian Federation. 70.Population expansion in developing countries seems to be outstripping the resources that those countries can generate to feed their citizens.

This is an understandable fear, and a quick look at the circumstantial evidence certainly shows that as our population has increased, the health of our environment has decreased. Thomas Malthus , a 19th century cleric of the Church of Eng-land, is today remembered chiefly as the originator of a theory about human population. he developed the Malthusian theory of population growth in which he wrote that population growth occurs exponentially, so it increases according to birth rate.

    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.
