  • Implications Of Economic Development: Environment, And Development

    Sara Alqhtani May 13, 2015 ECON 420 Environment and Development Economists and environmental scientists conflict over the chronic issues of environment and developments. The objectives of economic development/growth often clash with ecological fortification and sustainability goals. Accordingly, scientists have generated a huge research body over the years regarding the cultural, philosophical, economic, political, physical, and social ecological implications of the effects of economic development on the environment. However, the purpose of this paper is to discuss this subject from the angles of the following scholars and articles: a. Uneven and Combined Development by James O’Connor. b.

  • Debt Ratio In Ghana

    I think the Debt/GDP ratio could be slightly higher as election years have always seen a reduced growth forecast even for nominal GDP. However, at that debt level, even though in practice it is difficult to determine what a “safe” debt level, the macroeconomic environment points to the fact that our fiscal space (maximum debt threshold) is almost running out. Therefore Ghana will be faced with severe debt sustainability risk with the rising debt levels. With the slow real GDP growth, low…

    the environment due to the delayed effects of climate change. The effects of climate change are caused primarily by the industrial north however these adverse effects are not being felt immediately by these nations. Approximately two-thirds of GHG emissions are from the United States, Europe, and Japan, of which these nations hold one-seventh of the population of the world and roughly half of total global wealth.

  • Wealth And Climate Change

    economy. In this paper I will argue that the economic transformation proposed by Thomas Homer-Dixon is essential to the cultivation of long term utility in a globalized world.

The increase of wealth and environmental damage causes investments into new…
