... Globalisation is considered as an important phenomenon which has resulted into widespread changes in socio-economic variables in developed as well as developing countries. Globalisation has started as an economic phenomenon due to liberal changes in trade policies, opening up of markets as well as advancement in communication and information technology. However, over the period of time, Globalisation has also resulted into widespread changes in the culture as well as other socio-economic variables also. Globalisation is essentially focused upon trade as well as capital flows and suggests that an open economy can benefit from the improved trade as well as capital flows as other countries try to...

The relationship between race and poverty in the U.S. is similar. Both go hand in hand. Just like two arms of the scale are important to find the equilibrium or the correct measure, the aspects, social structure and culture, needs to be discussed and understood in tandem. Black poverty is the cumulative effect of heterogeneous social forces like segregation and the middle-class black residents fleeing from urban centers, not as a matter of choice but due to compelling circumstances. The reasons for black poverty are historical, a ...

Social geography involves the concern on the formation of social relation and identities as well as inequalities. Cultural geography involves a focus on social processes. The role of political economy and economic geography entrench the aspects of materialism and of representation. This paper discusses the extent of recombination of social and cultural geography. Given the roles of materialism and representation in the former, this paper suggests that ‘material’ and ‘representational’ must be...

Detroit’s long, slow economic decline has devastated neighborhoods such as the one Tyree Guyton turned into a landmark that Detroiters and tourists alike find compelling and confrontational. The persistence of this local icon has changed the very meaning of urban renewal, which has traditionally meant clearing away the old and imposing something new and supposedly improved.

The Indian case is particularly acute because about 22 percent of the population are living below the poverty line.

They feel that the laws exist to be followed by other people, not themselves, and they are willing to break them because it means their stomach will be filled. Alternatively, poverty also causes crime in that people who are poorer are less education and more susceptible to mental illness, and thus more likely to break the law. These are both important considerations to take into account when thinking about this crime and poverty. The truth is that the poor have many disadvantages which they must struggle against.

Based on this assumption there is the question of whether income alone is a valid or reliable measure of poverty.
