The four Asian Tigers: Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan have swiftly expanded through economics, industrialization, technology, and education. These countries were the first to transform from a developing nation into a newly industrialized nation (Cateora, 327). These regions, also known as the “East Asian miracles”, highly influenced the creation of China’s economy and trade relations. The four Asian Tigers’ economic boost and trade alliances, motivated the U.S. Trade Representative to develop a free trade agreement. Singapore and South Korea were the first to consent to the U.S. Trade Representative's offer and become apart of the free trade agreement (Cateora, 328). In turn, this arrangement has expanded not only China’s growth but has helped to develop surrounding nations as well.
How did the four Asian Tigers rise out of a developing state? In general, each of the nation's government concentrated on economic expansion and knew a motivated and educated society played an important role in their development (Cateora, 329). Considering China is broken up into regions and each requires its own expansion and strategy, respectively, the regions had their own methods of development (Cateora, 319).…
2.1. The Developmental State Theory
2.1.1. A Recipe for Sustained Economic Growth
Proliferation of literatures on comparative development studies revolving around the DS paradigm are attributable to rise of the East Asian countries known for their success in sustaining high economic growth over a long period of time coupled with a relatively stable political regime taking a proactive approach in its economic development initiatives. Indeed, this East Asian Miracle has frequently been cited as a…
Question: Should the practice of trophy hunting in Africa be preserved in order to improve conservation efforts, or be outlawed to prevent the killing of more animals?
Thesis: Trophy Hunting is the foundation of many conservation efforts in Africa, it must continue, however stricter regulations must be put in place in order to protect Africa’s native species as a whole.

The Amur Leopard lives in the Russian Far East and can run up to thirty-seven miles per hour. Surprisingly, it can jump more than nineteen feet horizontally and ten feet vertically. Sadly there are only about sixty Amar
leopards left. In the early 1905’s there was about 4,000 South China Tigers and in 1996 there was about thirty to eighty left. Now they are believed to be extinct because they have not been seen for more than twenty-five years. In Sumatra there is a total of 400…
(Gaia Packet pg.3) The Gaia Model consists of an outer circle with three parts the Physiosphere, the Biosphere, and the Noosphere. The Physiosphere is divided into the four ‘Classical’ elements and prerequisites for life; Earth (topsoil), Air (primarily oxygen), Fire (Energy), Water. From the Noosphere there are four more categories that further break down the spheres; Politics; information about power, authority, and entitlement. Economics; which is information about the exchange value of…
One of the most critically endangered big cats with only 35 left in the world. They have been critically endangered since 1996. If the amur leopard becomes fully extinct this will cause the ecosystem to become unstable. Reasons why they are critically endangered/threats include habitat loss. It is estimated that between 1970-1983, the Amur leopard lost an 80% of its territory. They will have nowhere else to go. deforestation cutting down trees, Poaching illegal trade, prey being…
In this scenario, the captive lions exhibit stereotypic pacing behaviors around feeding times. To address the welfare concern of pacing in these captive lions, I would recommend a change in the way food is presented. Felids engage in appetitive behaviors to obtain their food (Shepherdson et al, 1993), and these behaviors include locating, capturing, killing and consuming their prey (Lindburg, 1988). Varying the method and timing of food delivery by either…
“Various factors contribute to a species becoming endangered including poaching, global warming, habitat loss, disease, pollution, and hunting and fishing” (Cathaleen). All of these are reasons why a species becomes endangered or extinct. To help endangered species from becoming extinct the United States signed a bill that is called the Endangered Species Act. This makes it so that the government has to take action and they have to help save the species. They have to put the species in a safe…
