in some areas but little in
-Provides help for those
trying to start a business.
-Combines government
control with private
- Government helps farmers
when market prices are low.
-Two types: Socialist (increase
business taxes) and Conservative
(cut business taxes).
- Government involvement varies
depending on which party is in power. subsistence -Common in developing countries (Africa, South America, and Central Asia)
-Plant small amounts of crops/herd animals in dry climate with poor soils.
-Many Aboriginals subsist on the forest's wood.
-Fruits, roots, medicines, and meat.
-Used by small villages and families.
-Nothing is sold. traditional -Like subsistence, but more developed so that a profit can be made.
-Threatened by more eficient methods of fishing and farming. command -Government owns and controls all parts of the economy.
-Originated in Russia in 1917 after the Russian Revolution.
-All properties, farmland, and industries are owned by the state.
-1945-1991: collapase of most command economies.
-Found in communist nations.
-Many ideas came from Karl Marx, a German living in England.
No competition among similar industries. market -Independantly run businesses without help from the government (or interferance).
-Businesses with high demand will flourish and others will die because of lack of demand. Thus, the market determines how the economy will run and what it will produce.
-The government involvement is limited to managing money policies and stepping in to help faultering companies if they experience failure.
-Based on supply (producers) and demand (consumers). population patterns site & situation GIS GPS medical responses military Urbanization -the growth of cities
(can also mean the adaptation of an urban lifestyle) urbanilization cartogram -A visual representation of a selected statistic. geographic patterns scattered clustered linear Areas along coastline (near water) Areas of low elevation Northern Hemisphere motion maps maps mapping guidelines title direction author border date ruler lines (straight) readability/neatness/ access legend scale Egypt 15 million people in metropolitan area of Cairo (megacity) Limited resources: lack of resources to support the population World's 20 most populous countries Tokyo Mexico City Sau Paulo New York City Shanghi Lagos Los Angeles Calcutta Buenos Aires Settlements Hunter Gathering vs. Farming Main type of knowledge: Experimental Conceptual Relationship with nature: Balance Exploitation Time horizon: Began 5-2.2 million years ago Began 12-10 thousand years ago Connection to you and your DNA: Human evolutionary time: 99.96% Human evolutionary time: 0.04% Culture Map of SOuth Asia Why Trade? Consumers producers country definitions advantages -more products available at a lower price -Can ifluence what happens in other countries or in their own country -Consumers have access to goods otherwise unavailabe to them. disadvantages -potential unemployment if your job is moved overseas. disadvantages advantages -have a larger market -more money from selling more of the product -more imports mean more competition -potentially lower prices for selling goods advantages disadvantages -dependeny on other countries -Potential over exploitation of resources -more employees needed so more jobs are available -develop alliances with other countries Specialization -focusing on a company, country, or individual does well. Comparative Advantage -when a country can produce a good at a lower opportunity cost than another. Imports -goods and services brought into a country Exports -goods and services brought out of a country Trade Balance/Budget -exports > imports = trade surplus
-exports < imports = trade deficit Protectionism -when a government places a tariff or quota on imported goods to protect domestic producers from international competition Tariff -a tax placed on imported goods Quota -a restriction of the quantity of a good allowed to enter a country's borders Tourism -brings money and new jobs
-brings new knowledge
