Immigration: Positive Net Effects

...dirty, dangerous, and difficult (Human migration, 2009). When an immigrant arrives and starts working, it may seem apparent that they took a natives job . What we do not see is that another job is created for that native worker. By going to another country the immigrant has created an additional demand for goods and services, which at the end will create an additional job. Having immigrant workers fill these low end jobs frees native workers to take up jobs in the next tier of the ladder. Over the past couple of decades there has been an increase to the labor force due to massive entry of baby boomer, migrants, and women. According to Rakesh Kochhar, a writer for Pew Research Center, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an increase in the labor force of 11.3 million from 2000 to 2010 and a 16.7 million increase from 1990 to 2000 (Kochhar, 2012). Yet there has been no increase in long term unemployment. The fluctuations that have been observed can be explained by the business cycle and other factors. This also means that as the number of workers increase, we have put them to work The fact is that immigrants filling up these jobs are a source of low labor cost. They lighten the load for producers, which results in economic benefits. Low labor cost to business owners help drive down the prices of the goods they produce. So these cost reductions will eventually be passed on to the consumer. Which means native citizens will benefit from this as well. Immigrants will often......

Critical Response to Runaway Globalization Without Governance

...In his article Runaway Globalization Without Governance, Nayan Chanda(2008) asserts that nowadays, the lack of global governance, especially that from the U. S., has put the world created by globalization on a precarious position. In contemporary society, the emergence of the three global challenges-“the issues of sovereignty and national security”, nuclear crisis, and global climate changes- has made it really imperative for all countries to enhance global governance. In my opinion, it is indeed necessary for all countries to participate in global governance to surmount various global challenges. However, it is idealistic of Chanda to simply hope that super powers like the U. S. will actively push the establishment of global rules when such action actually goes against the their national interest. Firstly, I agree that global governance is an essential factor in the further development of globalization and the stabilization of the world. From a historical perspective, while governance from a single empire and people’s common fear’s of God were effective in a certain historical period to solve the issues having emerged in the progress of globalization, only global governance provided fundamental solutions to these problems (Chanda, 2008). In contemporary society, global governance does have made great contributions to a more stable and developed world as well. Among many other global institutions, the establishment of World Trade Organization (WTO) and World Health......

Carbon Tax Mining

...suggests that human activities are causing a buildup of greenhouse gases and that this in turn is causing changes to the world’s climate (Gregorczu, 1999). Further complicating the issue, there are economic costs, scientific uncertainty, political difficulties, and equity questions between developed and developing nations in any attempt to reduce emissions. On 15 December, 2008 the Australian Government released its White Paper Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme: Australia’s Low Pollution Future in which it sets out the design of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) that was intended to take effect from 1 July 2010 (Goodsell, 2008). Though the scheme has been shelled for now, sooner or later it will be implemented in one form or another (Chanda, 2010). A carbon price will have consequences for all Australian businesses and companies. Implications will arise as a result of direct and indirect exposures to a carbon price, requiring the management of strategic, operational and financial issues. This will necessitate the need to proactively assess and understand risk, and develop a strategy to ensure viability of operations. Organisations that recognise the new risk environment, plan thoroughly, and act early will be best placed to mitigate the risks and maximise the opportunities that a carbon price – fixed and then flexible presents (KPMG). With the implementation of the CPRS the mining industry will be subjected significant stimulus for transformational change, hence it......
