In this presentation you will find out how much the crime rate has changed and how other countries compare. We are the highest in the rate of incarcerations and murders.

The presentation should start out with some statistics from years ago. Show that with the increase in population and show how much the crime rate has went up since then. In doing some research I found a site that had statistics from 1960-2010 and you can see the increase from year to year and some decreased in certain years too. I understand the more people that live here, the more things are going to happen. It doesn’t help that the past few years have been tarnished by the recession and people are hurting.
In 1960 In 2010 * Population
179,323,175 308,745,538 * Violent Crimes
288,460 1,246,248 * Murders
9,110 14,748 * Rapes
17,190 84,767 * Total of all crimes violent and non-violent
3,384,200 10,329,135 I would start out my PowerPoint presentation with telling what crimes are done. Where they are happening, how many, and how the United States compares to the rest of the world. It would be nice to see if there is any countries that compare to us at all and how they handle it. I would include the economic standings here and compare them to the other countries. This way we could see how that compares and see if this could be one of the circumstances that cause the crimes. Maybe they are doing something different that we are not doing. These may help us find a way to deter people from doing crime and we could learn from this. I know in England they do not incarcerate like we do and use more crime prevention and rehabilitation to keep people out of jail. In doing these comparisons, we may learn something from…...

Some also say the natural human activities might be one of the contributing factors for the global warming, causing an increase in the average temperatures. Let us first look at what the earth is doing in order to cause the global warming situation. Ocean heat is rising; the temperature over the oceans is also rising. Now I could say that it is caused by us taking some of the fresh oxygen out of the air by cutting......

Gdp Growth in Bd

...Economic structure and growth When the Europeans set up trading posts around the area of Bangladesh, the British dominated the region. As such, Bangladesh was part of British India until the region was split up into India and Pakistan in 1947. Pakistan was comprised of West Pakistan (current Pakistan) and East Bengal (current Bangladesh. This awkward arrangement of a two-part country with its territorial units 1,600 km apart left the Bengalis marginalized and dissatisfied. In 1971, East Bengal separated from Pakistan and was renamed Bangladesh. Ever since, economic development has been very slow, hampered by political turmoil. It is one of the poorest countries in the world with nominal GDP per head of only USD 1,483 and 36% of the population living below the poverty line of USD 1 per day. The low level of human development is also reflected in the UN’s human development index, which ranks Bangladesh 146th out of 182 countries. Economic development is also hampered by a high vulnerability to inundations. Each year, about a third of the country is flooded during the annual monsoon rains. This severely affects the agricultural sector, washing away crops. While the agricultural sector is not especially important in terms of economic size, since it accounts only for 18% of GDP, it employs 45% of the country’s labor force. The industrial sector contributes 29% to GDP and within this sector the textiles and garment sector is a key growth driver. Unfortunately, the industrial......

Bangladesh Gdp Growth Rate

...Bangladesh GDP Growth Rate The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Bangladesh expanded 6.30 percent in 2012 from the previous year. GDP Growth Rate in Bangladesh is reported by the Bangladesh Bank. Historically, from 1994 until 2012, Bangladesh GDP Growth Rate averaged 5.58 Percent reaching an all time high of 6.70 Percent in June of 2011 and a record low of 4.08 Percent in June of 1994. Bangladesh is considered as a developing economy. Yet, almost one-third of Bangladesh’s 150m people live in extreme poverty. In the last decade, the country has recorded GDP growth rates above 5 percent due to development of microcredit and garment industry. Although three fifths of Bangladeshis are employed in the agriculture sector, three quarters of exports revenues come from producing ready-made garments. The biggest obstacles to sustainable development in Bangladesh are overpopulation, poor infrastructure, corruption, political instability and a slow implementation of economic reforms. This page includes a chart with historical data for Bangladesh GDP Growth Rate. Bangladesh Consumer Price Index (CPI) Consumer Price Index (CPI) in Bangladesh increased to 176.38 Index Points in August of 2012 from 173.18 Index Points in July of 2012.

Discuss Four Reasons Why Using Percentage Change in Nominal Gdp Is an Inadequate Measure of Economic Growth

...four reasons why using percentage change in nominal GDP is an inadequate measure of economic growth” (20 marks) A normal GDP is defined as the GDP calculated using current market prices. This means that it does not take inflation into account. This is an inaccurate measure of the economic growth. The reason for this is that the sustained increases in prices over the years do not allow for the measurement to be realistic. For example, is a mars bar is not 60p now and was 40p fifteen years ago, then the 50% increase in price is going to contribute to the GDP. If compared to the nominal GDP 15years ago the current GDP will be much higher as OUTPUT+EXPEDITURE=INCOME. But this is not the true value as inflation has forced prices to go up and therefore be measured and calculated to give a much larger GDP. If one creates a scenario where the value of the 40p bar and the current 60p bar is the same then the GDP (if transferred to all the other objects) should be the same. Real GDP would take this inflation out of the equation and replace it with the base value of the product. This would in fat give a much more accurate measurement of the GDP at the current time. When referring to economic growth, GDP gives a large hint to where economic growth is. The use of nominal GDP is therefore going to give the wrong conclusion to the direction of economic growth and so it is not an adequate measurement of economic growth. Also the quality of products is not accounted for in the GDP. The......

Economic Growth and Gdp

...Learaye Macroeconomics Economic Growth & GDP “Gross domestic product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages, the intelligence of neither public debate not the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our courage nor our wisdom, not the devotion to our country. It measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile and it can tell us everything except why we are proud to be Americans.” Quote by Robert F. Kennedy GDP GDP is not a measurement of overall prosperity of a nation and it fails to measure some aspects of a national economy. As you can gain from the quote by Robert F. Kennedy, we do not use this to measure those things which “make life worthwhile” but rather use it to judge one country from another. It helps to evaluate how societies function in different economic environments and how to use this measurement to improve conditions in a society or to keep things flowing for a healthy economy. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is defined as the total market value of final goods and services produced by factors of production. GDP also measures markets of what is being produced or whether problems are occurring. There is a relationship presented with a circular flow model that gives us a picture of the flow of production being produced in an economy. The circular flow model......

Services Sector Growth Rate in India Gdp

...Services Sector Growth Rate in India GDP Services Sector Growth Rate in India GDP. The Services Sector contributes the most to the Indian GDP. The Sector of Services in India has the biggest share in the country's GDP for it accounts for around 54% in 2009. The contribution of the Services Sector in India GDP has increased a lot in the last few years. The Services Sector contributed only 15% to the Indian GDP in 1950. Further the Indian Services Sector's share in the country's GDP has increased from 43.695 in 1990- 1991 to around 51.16% in 1998- 1999. This shows that the Services Sector in India accounts for over half of the country's GDP. The Reasons for the growth of the Services Sector contribution to the India GDP The contribution of the Services Sector has increased very rapidly in the India GDP for many foreign consumers have shown interest in the country's service exports. This is due to the fact that India has a large pool of highly skilled, low cost, and educated workers in the country. This has made sure that the services that are available in the country are of the best quality. The foreign companies seeing this have started outsourcing their work to India specially in the area of business services which includes business process outsourcing and information technology services. This has given a major boost to the Services Sector in India, which in its turn has made the sector contribute more to the India GDP....

Debt and Gdp Growth

...Regime-switching effects of debt on real GDP per capita the case of Latin American and Caribbean countries Tsangyao Chang ⁎, Gengnan Chiang Department of Finance, Feng Chia University, Taichung, Taiwan a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t In this paper, we try to investigate how the debt and real GDP per capita relationship varies with indebtedness levels and other country characteristics in a balanced panel of 21 developing Latin American and Caribbean countries over the period 1992–2006. The empirical results indicate that there exist two threshold values of 32.88% and 55.89%. The latter is lower than the Maastricht criterion and Stability and Growth Pact of a total external Debt per GDP ratio at 60% in the OECD countries. Both thresholds divide our panel into three regimes. In the middle (stimulus) regime, the Debt per GDP ratio has a positive impact on real GDP per capita, which is consistent with the stimulus view (Eisner, 1984). However, the impact becomes negative and consistent with the crowding-out view (Friedman, 1977, 1985) in the left and right (crowding-out) regimes. Based on our findings, we find no supportive evidence for Ricardian view (Barro, 1989). Therefore, our empirical results have important implications for fiscal policymakers in these Latin American and Caribbean countries. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Gdp Growth, Recessions and Cycles

...analysis of the data - GDP growth: recessions and cycles. GDP Growth: Recessions and Cycles Figure 1 - US Real GDP 1930 – 2014 with 2009 as the Base Year Source: (Shiller, 2015); (Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, 2015) Figure 1 above shows the real Gross Domestic product (GDP) of the United States for the years 1930 to 2014. Real GDP is essential and important as it shows the general soundness of the economy. Thus, when real GDP is high it means other macroeconomic factors such as employment and economic growth are positive and vice versa. This is because real GDP is substantially correlated to these macroeconomic factors. Therefore, the chart above shows that America’s GDP has been growing steadily over the years. This consistent growth has seen to it that America’s real GDP hit a high of 16.16 trillion U.S. dollars up from a low of around 1.06 trillion U.S. dollars in 1930. It is also apparent that the steady growth in the real GDP has led to many significant improvements in the economy and standards of living. Thus, it is evident that the standards of living and other macroeconomic factors are better now than in the mid nineteen hundreds (OpenStax College, 2014). Further, statistical and economic analysis shows that the real GDP of America has an average median and mean of approximately 6.34 and 7.20 trillion dollars respectively (Shiller, 2015). This is caused by the various cyclical changes in the economy. Despite the steady growth in real GDP the U.S.......

Gdp Growth in Latin America

...Research project: The relationship between: the annual growth rate of GDP per capita and the public expenditure in Latin America. F29 F33 F43 O19 My goal for this research project is to examine the relationships that exists in between the annual growth rate per capita and public expenditure in Latin America. What I wanted to see is if a higher growth rate of GDP meant that a higher percentage was spent in the public sector. Data was gathered from the ECLAC, The World Bank and also the International Monetary Fund. Introduction The reason I was very attracted in this research is because as someone born in South America and lately Latin America has been doing better than before, and visiting South America the past year I have seen how infrastructure has improved lately so I was very interested in seeing how big of a role public expenditure plays in countries that are developing. Expenditure on welfare, health and education are an essential part of what governments do to enhance the quality of life of their citizens and the human capital base of their societies. My focus on public and social expenditure in Latin America is mainly guided by the concern of how Governments utilizes existing policies and seeing how these theories and policies have helped increase Latin America’s GDP. In Latin America we find a great variation in social policy regimes; ranging from Uruguay and Argentina, where a large majority of the population is covered by social policy and has......

Gdp Growth

...India's GDP seen rising but skepticism remains Nyshka Chandran | @nyshkac Monday, 30 Nov 2015 Growth in Asia's third-largest economy likely picked up pace during the July-September period but don't cheer just yet, economists warn. India's real gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to expand 7.3 percent on year, up from 7 percent in the April-June quarter, on the back of improved consumption and rising industrial production, according to widespread estimates from private sector economists. Discretionary consumer spending has been holding up better, reflected by a 9.5 percent annual rise in September car sales, Morgan Stanley pointed out in a Monday report. Meanwhile, positive factory production is another bright spot, with annual industrial output expanding 4.2 percent in July, 6.3 percent in August and 3.6 percent in September. The upshot is ultimately buoyed growth, but it's still far from full-throttle, said Vishnu Varathan, senior economist at Mizuho Bank. "Admittedly, with softer inflation boosting consumption, a less dire-than-expected monsoon outcome and nascent industrial uptick, India is still the bright spot in Asia. But growth momentum is not, as yet, on a solid footing." Experts widely agree that India's biggest problem is a negative output gap, i.e. the difference between actual production and what could be produced under full capacity. "We believe that the root cause of the challenging macro environment in India over the past few years......

Expected U.S. Gdp Growth Rate Going Forward

... EXPECTED U.S. GDP GROWTH RATE GOING FORWARD The gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate is an important indicator of the U.S. economic health. The slope of the yield curve – the spread between long and short - term interest rates – is a good predictor of future economic activity. As these slopes shift, you will get periods of high and low growth in GDP. There are three different methods of determining GDP. The first one is estimating each industry’s gross output and subtracts intermediate inputs from other industries to derive each industry’s residual value-added, which is sometimes called the production approach (Wells and Krugman, 2009). The second method is the income approach, which measures the income earned by the different factors of production (Wells et al). The third method is the final expenditures approach, which shows what is happening across different types of spending throughout the economy, usually done annually (Wells et al). The calculation is GDP = C (Consumption) + I (Investment) + G (Government production) + X (Exports) – I (Imports) (Wells et al). The three methods of measuring the GDP must carry out the same result, in other words the total value of the production, the total value of the incomes and total value of the expenditure must be equal. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), in the third quarter of 2011, the GDP was at 2.5%, which was up from 0.8% in the first two quarters of...

Why Stronger Summer Gdp Is Horrible News

...Why Stronger Summer GDP Is Horrible News (November 15, 2013) This article talks about how the initial numbers on GDP were actually higher than first recorded. Economists are now saying that the U.S. economy most likely grew above a 3% annual rate in the third quarter, which is more than .2% higher than the government’s initial reading of 2.8%. This was due to a report this past Friday that showed a larger-than-expected gain in some September inventories. • J.P. Morgan Chase and Barclays economists uped their estimates to 3.1%. • Pierpont Securities economist Stephen Stanley put the growth rate at 3%. • Macroeconomic Advisers had their tracking estimate at an enormous 3.3% At a 3% pace, this GDP growth would be the fastest since the first quarter of 2012, a slight improvement for this economy which has been stuck at a 2% expansion since the recovery began in mid-2009. GDP growth has exceeded 3% only four times since the recession’s end. The article goes on saying on how the headline figures in economic reports often obscure troubling trends below the surface. So the buildup in inventories, for example, essentially means many goods produced by the economy over the summer went unsold, and are now left on stores’ shelves. A Commerce Department report on last Thursday showed the government most likely underestimated the negative impact of the trade deficit in its third-quarter GDP estimate. The U.S. trade gap with other countries widened 8% in September from August, as......

Us Gdp Growth Rate

...In normal times, a 3.2 percent GDP growth rate for the United States is good. In the 1980’s the U.S. suffered another severe recession. During that recovery, GDP grew at a 7 to a 9 percent rate for more than one year. A 3.2 percent GDP annual growth rate barely creates enough jobs to keep up with the expanding population. It does nothing for all those who lost their jobs and are looking for work. The U.S. unemployment rate is 9.7 percent and the underemployment rate, a more accurate measure of the true unemployment situation is running at the 16.5% level. What can we learn from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) report on the GDP growth rate that might be helpful to investors? Jobless growth “Okun’s rule of thumb” points toward an economy that must grow at the 3.0 – 3.5 percent level to maintain current employment levels. If the U.S. economy was operating at full employment status, a 3.0-3.5 percent growth rate works just fine. The problem is the U.S. has 9.7% unemployment and 16.5% underemployment. We will get another look at the employment situation when the Bureau of Labor statistics (BLS) releases the number for April on May 7, 2010. The chart below from the BLS report for March 2010 shows that the total employment for the U.S. is back where it was at the end of the recession that ended in January 2003. If the U.S. GDP only achieves growth at 3.0 to 3.5 percent growth rate, the level of employment will only cover the expansion of the population, leaving 7.5 million...

The Growth of Gdp

...materials and social principals. This paper will entail some trends, forecasts, and statistics for the expected growth rate of the United States’ gross domestic products (GDP). It will detail how the GDP is determined and how it can be interpreted. Every month the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) updates the trend, forecasts, and statistics for the GDP. It announces the growth of the GDP and depicts how quickly the economy has flourished from the last quarter. The BEA suggests that the quarterly yield should be 2-3% because this steady trend will assist the economy in job production without causing inflation (Chitwood, 1961). The only time the BEA would suggest a higher quarterly yield would be when there is a recession because it will keep the economy’s unemployment rate to a minimum. Trends portray the magnitude in which a country will survive depressions and recessions. Every depression’s truncated point usually ends in a great recovery that boosts the economy to a higher standard than previous. Trends within the United States showcase a growth for the country and ensure a 3.2% growth projection within 10 to 20 years ( This is because the trend has steadily progressed from previous decades by at least 2.4% and will continue to increase. Reason being, analysts’ prediction for the 20 year average suggests that the growth from 2011 would only raise the GDP by 2.7%, which will only yield 3.0% and will in turn be just enough to come out of a recession. This is......
