GGR323 - Development and Population cost of development - demographic transition model - how does it impact people and environment - not solving relationship between resources and population - massive development in urbanization and transportation, etc, in countries such as China - suggesting to countries to engage in economic development - is it right? should they follow our rate of consumption? - consumption = energy use increase - based upon improvement of personal consumption - do we have right to tell other countries not to consume so much energy? - we imply our lifestyle is good and everyone else needs to replicate - need people to consume goods to have capitalism - pollution is something that cannot be isolated geographically - wind patterns, etc benefits from globalization - significant spreading of investment - spreading benefits through process of globalization - jobs created in other parts of the world - increase standard of living (improve) - process of consumption around the world - types of jobs - based upon low income, low skills - if based on low income, always have rush to the bottom because people will look for lower jobs (easier) - not all jobs have low skill requirement - India produces largest amount of engineers - if engineer is working in the states, have to pay them in USD, but if they are kept in India, pay in Indian currency - great amount of savings - these jobs will create a new middle class in these countries - leads to increase in consumption - not necessarily sustainable - doesnt translate into universal development - becomes spatially restricted - most of the development in China occurs along costal areas, etc - benefits not translated into lives of everyone, only in specific areas - increase levels of regional inequalities and differences
