ANSWER ALL THREE QUESTIONS IN AN ESSAY FORMAT. I NEED 2 PAGES FOR THE FIRST AND THE SECOND QUESTION. FOR THE THIRD QUESTION ONLY ONE PAGE, SO TOTAL 5 PAGES.
1. Human civilization dates back thousands of years, for example in China, Egypt, Greece and Rome, but it has been in the last three hundred years the we have seen the phenomena of increasing incomes, and population, spreading across the globe. Discuss how this has happened.
2. On the other hand, the first industrializing nations of the 18th and especially the 19th centuries are still dominant in world affairs. Discuss why this happened, and consider whether and which other countries might join the list by the end of the 21st century.
3. Also, although the population seems to have grown everywhere, many countries are stilL on the edge of poverty. Some would say that this is because the policy prescriptions of the rich countries may have been suited to their experience, but are less relevant – even destructive – of the aims and aspirations of the early 21st century LDCs. Discuss.
