Chinese Economic Reform under Communist Rule
    Chinese Economic Reform under Communist Rule   Two years after the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, it became apparent to many of China’s leaders that economic reform was necessary. During his tenure as China’s premier, Mao had encouraged social movements such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution which had had as their bases ideologies such as serving the people and maintaining the class struggle.

Abstract This paper is concerned with the recent wave of Hong Kong immigrants into Vancouver. The stage is set for this discussion by first explaining some background behind Canadian immigration policy and then discussing the history of Chinese immigrants in Vancouver. From these discussions we are informed that Canadian immigration policy was historically ethnocentric and only began to change in the late 1960s. It was at this point that we see a more multicultural group of immigrants into our

As twenty-first century draws near, there appears to be in the world an era of unprecedented peace. Contrary to the predictions that the end of the Cold War will bring about the fragmentation of international order and the emergence of multipolar rivalry among atomistic national units, today the world’s major powers enjoy co-operative relations and world economy is progressively liberalising and integrating. The peace and prosperity of the current era, however are sustained by the constant oper

The stock market as evidenced by the events of the past several years
The stock market, as evidenced by the events of the past several years, is a delicate thing. Uncertainties regarding the market abide with justification. Not many market participants foresaw the extent to which the world markets would be affected by the Asian financial crisis. The news of widespread financial failures in Southeast Asia and Japan hit the American, European, and Latin American markets with force, with net losses of 10%-50% and up of the total stock market value. Yet, within month

Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and Acquisitions The domestic mergers and acquisitions in the financial services industry have been growing steadily over the past two decades. International mergers between the banks were rare. The share of cross-boarder mergers in the banking industry is low compared to the other industries (Claudia M Buch, Gay le DeLong. Journal of Banking Finance. Amsterdam: Sep 2004.Vol.28, Iss. 9; pg. 2077). The wave of the bank mergers started in the United States in the 1990 and spread to other c

Homeless People The problem of homelessness in America is growing dramatically. It's a problem that can strike anyone when you least expect it. Therefore you should address this as a major crisis that affects our society. I feel as Americans we should come together to create solutions to end a growing epidemic of homeless people. Statistics show people living in poverty are most at risk of becoming homeless. Economically they are at a higher risk of losing what little they already have. The numb

JAPAN’S BOOM/BUST ECONOMY INTRODUCTION Today, Japan is faced with many economic challenges. Japan's economic woes ultimately lie with their population and land problems, import and export ratio, failing financial industry, falling stock market prices, and issues within their government. In fact, many of these challenging problems can be considered a chain reaction, an overflow from one area of their economy to the next. To fully understand their current economic condition, it is important to br

Asian Crisis The financial crisis that erupted in Asia in mid-1997 has led to sharp declines in the currencies, stock markets, and other asset prices of a number of Asian countries. It is hard to understand what these declines will actually do to the world market. This decline is expected to halve the rate of world growth in 1998 from the four percent that was projected pre-crisis to an estimated outcome of about 2 percent. The countries that are included in the East Asian crisis, known as Tiger

Only about 50% of unemployed workers today are eligible for unemployment insurance in Canada and that rate is decreasing with higher requirements set by the government. To prove that you are looking for work, people are generally required to go to unemployment offices to prove that they had gone to interviews wit
