GGR 254 – USA Geography Dec. 6, 2010
GGR 254 – THEMES AND EXAM
-Theme 1 – the long-term integration of the USA into the global economy and the international
political arena both drives and shapes its development
Important bc it has a history to it
Product of colonization; expanding Europe
Globalization – internationalization
United States 300 years ago was an important player in the world; today it is still a sole
player but this immense power is flawed; terrified that China will knock off their power;
immobility
Important within the global economy; eg labour costs and Detroit
-Theme 2 – Changning regional and urban geographies have been shaped American economic,
social and political development
Buffalo, Southern Texas – how that became the new south, oil
Military might, specific urban development; eg LA, Washington
How regional position shifts over time; manufacturing belt and then the sun belt
Regional changes are affected by big things eg political and economy change
-Theme 3 – the USA has experienced massive growth and acquired unprecedented power, but a
great social and economic cost
Deindustrialization; economy cost
American should be able to live without poverty given its wealth it is unable to do that bc
the very American liberty and capitalism means inequality
Race plays a big factor; structure of inequality has a factor to social inequality – Sugrue
-Theme 4 – public and privateactors have played a critical and defining role in the creation of
regional-urban geographies
These things just dont emerge – it comes fromactors
Not all actors are equal, the CEO of Microsoft is much more powerful person then an
immigrant who runs a grocery store for example
Race, still with the election of Obama, if you were white you have a lot more access to
political power and also gender
Private interests
Suburbanization
