It is great to come to the original abode of immortal beings. As a young man I am very curious to read about the legend that in 219 BC, Emperor Shih Huang-Ti sent 3,000 young boys and girls to your Island to bring back the herb of immortality. The young boys and girls did not return to China but remained and populated Japan. In my case, my sponsor came along with me to make sure that I return to my country Nigeria.
First and foremost, let me express my deepest condolence on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the National Open University of Nigeria which I represent, to the good people of Japan for the recent…...

Industry for Future

...Vincent Campagna Professor Pinchero Rhetoric and Comp 1311.19 12 November 2012 Word Count: 1,249 Industry for the Future The aftermath of a zombie apocalypse has left the city of Houston, Texas, completely devastated. The destruction has left Houston’s city and citizens in ruins. Few made it through the zombie attack, and now the city stands in an unstable and deteriorated state. With more than half the population already wiped out by the apocalypse, forming a secure and sustainable way of producing food for the community must be achieved by the city’s government. As my cities planner, I must decide on a sustainable and productive agricultural system that will support my cities recovering population. Planning ahead for Houston’s future, industrial agriculture stands as the only viable option to support the city’s future agricultural success. Before the zombie apocalypse, Houston stood as the fourth most populous city in the country. At its prime the city boasted well over two and a half million people, and had one of the largest oil and gas industries in the country. Now, the city stands barely even a shadow of what it used to be. The two million citizens that once thrived here now have dwindled to less than 800,000. The city’s government must decide how it will tackle the substantial job of feeding its surviving populous in this post-apocalyptic world. The officials have two options of agricultural style, either urban or industrial. Both of these come with their own......

The Future of Social Security

...The Future of Social Security Paula Allen COM 156 December 11, 2010 Joy V'Marie The Future of Social Security Social Security will not meet the needs of the younger generations in retirement because the depletion of funds in the Social Security trusts. The age requirement is predicted to rise to 70 by 2037 for those who can draw full benefits. There are people who survive on their monthly benefits from Social Security, but how long will it be before they cannot live on this amount of money? Under current laws and program benefits, the future of Social Security is unstable unless changes are made. Once the trust funds are exhausted, the funds do not have the ability to borrow money to keep paying benefits to those who receive them. So, what can the government do to protect the future of these trusts and ensure their stability for the future? The minimum age to start drawing Social Security is 62, but to draw full benefits a person must be 66. The current age to draw full benefits is 66 and will change to 67 soon because of the Social Security Amendments of 1983. The majority of American people are waiting to a much later age to retire than in the past. The younger generation of today may not be able to draw benefits until they are 70. Whether people retire early or late, the amount of benefits will equal about the same. Some people may believe that Social Security will meet their needs in retirement. If a person pays in the maximum amount of money, then......

The Future World Economy and Women

...The future of the world economy lies increasingly in female hands The role of women in society has changed dras4cally throughout the last decades. Looking  into history, 70 years ago it was expected of women to stay at home.  Even in the mid‐fiBies  many educated women led a suburban lifestyle, cooking for the husband, cleaning the house  and caring for the children. These were the deeds that society expected from them. The  normal family structure consisted of the husband, who would earn the money for the family,  his wife and the children. Today it is the excep4on.  The women’s libera4on movement throughout the 1960s was the kickoff for the  implementa4on of equal rights and payment for women, which passed through both Bri4sh  houses in 1975. An4‐discrimina4on laws for women quickly followed in all of Europe, laying  the ground stone for women’s success in business. Fields such as medicine, law, and science  opened to include more women, whom are now surpassing many males on the level of  educa4on. In the United States in women earned 62% of Associate's degrees, 58% of  Bachelor's degrees, 60% of Master's degrees, and 50% of Doctorates in 2006. These are  impressive results!  Being granted equal rights provided women with the opportunity to make their own choices  in terms of lifestyle. Women were, and in fact are, no longer dependant on their partners to  provide them with a living and have consequently become more demanding in what they ......

American Workforce in Future Economy

...coming future. Technology has been ever changing in the past few decades. It is causing rapid job loss. On the other hand, new technology is providing jobs to others. So on one side there is job loss, but jobs are being generated on the other end. To stop job loss due to technology we need to stop introducing new technology in US. But in "A Farewell to jobs" it is argues that it won't stop other countries from introducing new technology . The expanding world market and increasing global demand is due to improvements in worldwide communication and transportation. Because of Global network there are few barriers to entry and companies are moving to other countries .Outsourcing of projects to companies to India and China is causing job loss in USA. But the spreading of jobs to developing nations will obtain high volume and standardized products more cheaply then before. Everyone around the world is buying the skills and insights of Americans to manipulate oral and visual symbols. The demand for symbolic analysts such as scientists and researchers is increasing. These people are bringing huge money into America. On the other hand routine producers are being paid minimum wages. There is also decrease in union participation and an increase in competition for these jobs. The US economy has been questioned a lot ever since the global financial crisis. The economy may not be as stable as it was in the past anymore. Increasing influence of globalization is causing economy to......

Social Security and Emerging Economies

...Introduction As emerging economies experience growth, they are encountering new challenges in making economic development equitable and sustainable. Increasingly, bringing all parts of society up to minimum standards of living is becoming an issue of social responsibility and political requirement in emerging economies through social security programs. However, emerging economies are facing many constraints in implementing widespread social security programs to affect equality, poverty alleviation, and income security. When considering Social Security for emerging economies, there are two central issues that must be addressed; can emerging economies sustain viable social security systems, and is social security vital to the development of emerging economies. To understand these issues, and possible solutions, it is useful to look towards the established models found in Europe for answers. Social Security To analyze the issue at hand, we must first understand the definition of social security, as the benefits offered by the State and society differ from country to country. For example, Social Security is a narrowly defined program in the United States, which offers supplemental income to those of retirement age at 65 and older. However, in Europe, social security encompasses a slate of programs that provide cash transfers and benefits for the aged, unemployed, ill, and poor. These programs are often manifested in the form of pensions, unemployment benefits, and in......

Car Industry Economy

...strongest sector in the Australian economy. Within the past few months and ongoing weeks, there are several news being published that the Australian car manufacturing sector has become so small that that each car company is relying on the survival of the other. In relation to the debates and media news, this essay demonstrates, as to whether the Government should provide funds to car manufactures to prevent them operating overseas. The news has been all over the place that the three main car manufacturers, Toyota, Holden and Ford are expected to shut down their operations in Australia in the coming Years. The local content of the Australian made cars is in decline. According to figures supplied by the car makers, 30% of the parts to make Holden Cruise was sourced locally and 50% was Commodore. To survive beyond current models, car manufactures were going to be forced to rely more on foreign parts to keep the costs down. Due to low sales and low cost sales, the three manufactures are shutting down to recover from the massive financial losses and start making a profit. The data illustrates that the three factories have lost more than 1.5 billion dollars on their local manufacturing operations over the past decade, despite receiving more than twice that in the taxpayer over the same period. Therefore, who’s to blame for this deteriorating times for the car manufactures? The government is the major association with the car manufacturing industry. The creation of low......

The Effect of Globalisation on the Nigerian Economy

...On OKECHUKWU DIYOKE DIOKC81 | 1 INTRODUCTION An economy refers to the full network of distributers, producers and consumers of goods and services within local, regional or national communities. Globalization refers to the process of the increase in economic, political, social and ethnic relations across international boundaries. Globalization is aimed primarily at the constant theories that shape the political and socioeconomic development of nations across the globe. It looks at the continued increase in the collapse of trade barriers and increased world trade and integration; globalization can be seen as an extension that regularly restructures the way nations interact amongst themselves by breaking down their individual barriers in areas of culture, commerce, finance, communication, and several other fields of struggle. This on-going change can be seen from its thrust of legitimate governance, liberal democracy, gender equality, environmental stability, and free market economy among other aggregate values for people of the member states. Globalization creates a compelling inclination for the systematic development in the modern world today as a result of the problems it poses to the states in the form of challenges. This essay looks at the definition of globalisation, the concept of the process of globalization, and how it affects the Nigerian economy.

The Implications of Fuel Subsidy to Nigerian Economy

...Extra Credit Assignment – The Implications of Fuel Subsidy to Nigerian Economy Babandi Ibrahim Gumel Doctor of Business Administration California Southern University Mike Ewald, PhD November 2015 Introduction This paper would discuss the implications of fuel subsidy in the Nigerian economy. It is a position paper as an extra credit assignment for ECO 87501 for DBA course at California Southern University. The paper would review what subsidy is, the reason for subsidizing petroleum product in Nigeria, challenges the Nigerian economy is facing because of subsidizing petroleum products, and the crisis the country is facing because of subsidy. Analysis According to the dictionary of Investopedia, “subsidy is a benefit given by the government to groups or individuals usually in the form of a cash payment or tax reduction. The subsidy is given to remove some burden and is often considered to be in the interest of the public. Politics plays an important part in subsidization. In general, the left is more for having subsidized industries, while the right feels that industry should stand on its own without public funds” (Investopedia, 2015, p. 1). The above definition clearly indicates that the subsidy is a kind of free money in whatever form given to the public by Government. It is worth noting that the definition highlighted that politics plays a role in subsidy, and politicians on the left, (e.g. in U. S. the Democrats) favor subsidy. The Merriam-webmaster dictionary......

Effect of Foreign Direct Investment on the Nigerian Economy

...being employed in this study to determine the relationship between and impact of the Direct Foreign Investment on economic growth. The findings revealed that economic growth is directly related to inflow of foreign direct investment and it is also statistical significant at 5% level which implies that a good performance of the economy is a positive signal for inflow of foreign direct investment. This implies that foreign direct investment is an engine of economic growth. The paper recommended that government should liberalize the foreign sector in Nigeria so that all barriers to trade such as arbitrary tariffs; import and export duties and other levies should be reduced so as to encourage investors. Key words: Foreign Direct Investment, Economic Growth, OLS, CBN, Nigeria Introduction Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a direct investment into production or business in a country by an individual or company of another country, either by buying a company in the target country or by expanding operations of an existing business in that country. Foreign direct investment is in contrast to portfolio investment which is a passive investment in the securities of another country such as stocks and bonds. World Bank (1996) conceptualized Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) as investment that is made to acquire a lasting management interest (usually 10% of voting stock) in an enterprise and operating in a country other than that of the investors International Journal of Academic Research...

The Effect of Subsidy in Nigerian Economy

...Ibrahim CLASS: SS 3A SUBJECT: Economics Topic: The Effect of subsidy in Nigeria Economy THE EFFECTS OF SUBSIDY IN NIGERIA ECONOMY. DEFINATION A subsidy is an assistance paid to a business or economic sector. Most subsidies are made by the government to producers or distributed as subventions in an industry to prevent the decline of that industry (e.g., as a result of continuous unprofitable operations) or an increase in the prices of its products or simply to encourage it to hire more labor (as in the case of a wage subsidy). Examples are subsidies to encourage the sale of exports; subsidies on some foods to keep down the cost of living, especially in urban areas; and subsidies to encourage the expansion of farm production and achieve self-reliance in food production.[1] EFFECTS OF SUBSIDY REMOVAL In a country of power instability the removal of fuel subsidy has triggered double in the price of fuel . 1. increased price of fuel and other petroleum product 2. increase in transport fares 3. increased price of food products. The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has listed some of the adverse effects of the Federal Government's recent policy to deregulate the nation's downstream oil sector LCCI, in a statement, said the policy has led to fresh inflationary pressures resulting from sharp increases in transportation cost, high inflationary expectations across all sectors of the economy, and a devastating impact on the psyche of the common people as the new......

Information and Communication Technologies in the Nigerian Economy

...Information and Communication Technologies in the Nigerian Economy Peter Agada University of Ilorin Most developing nations have embarked on various reforms that foster the use of ICTs in their economies. These reforms tend to yield little or minimal benefits to economic growth and development, especially when compared with the developed countries of the world. Technological advancement is known to impact fast rate of economic development. In Nigeria, policy on adoption of Information and Communication Technologies was initiated in 1999, when the civilian regime came into power of government. The operations of the licensed telecommunication service providers in the country has created some well-felt macroeconomic effects in terms of job creation, faster delivery services, reduced transport costs, greater security and higher national output. This study intends to investigate the emerging roles of ICTs on Nigerian economy, and to evaluate the factors that influence the decisions of investors in the Nigerian telecommunications sector. Ordinary Least Square Method of Regression for the period 1999 – 2004, shall be employed. This period is considered appropriate in that, it was the time that policy on ICTs was adopted. The paucity of data prior to this time also poses restriction on meaningful econometric analysis. Significant and positive relationship between ICTs and economic growth is expected......
