Shipments of solar cells for power generation have grown fold since as the price per megawatt continues to fall. This structure generated inadequate overall production to meet the needs of an expanding population, periodic shortages and recurring threats of famine, which had only been avoided after by imports of increasingly large quantities of food grains.
Once they found it, direct sea trade developed and the Middle East lost the opportunity to be the central trade route between Europe and the Far East.
The paper traces the stages in the emergence of higher, more complex, more productive levels of social organization through the historical stages of nomadic hunting, rural agrarian, urban, commercial, industrial and post-industrial societies.
Green Revolution One of the most dramatic illustrations of a planned development initiative by government was the Green Revolution in India. Globally, we are experiencing the largest movement of people with millions fleeing violent conflicts in Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
Natural development is the spontaneous, subconscious progression of society, while planned development is the effort of governments to accelerate social progress through special policies and programs. Hence, an invitation is extended to all interested to participate and make a difference. The road to chaos is predictable, reliable, and inevitable once a series of well-known thresholds have been crossed.
The rare few who are willing to concede that physical resources may not impose severe limits on human progress are very likely to insist that the fixed character of human nature does. Fifth is religious and ethnic homogeneity, or at least the extent to which differences are tolerated. Confucian teachings would accommodate and sequester the most astonishing novelties that mariners found.
The theory needs to make clear the precise nature of the differences and similarities between planned and spontaneous development. Despite 50 years of intensive effort, the world is still blindly groping for adequate answers to fundamental questions about development and for effective strategies to accelerate the process.
At the same time new sources of energy are being discovered and commercialized, new types of materials are being created to replace scarce ones, and more efficient means of utilizing resources are being developed.
But the ultimate accomplishment of India's Green Revolution was to elevate the entire social organization of agricultural production and marketing in the country to a far higher level.
University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. Societies also utilize only a tiny portion of their potentials. The increasing pace of development over the past five centuries is directly linked to an increase in the speed and reliability of information about what is taking place in other parts of the country, region and world due to improvements in communication and transportation.
Different kinds of Kolmogorov complexity are studied: There is little agreement on universal remedies even for such basic economic disorders as unemployment. While realist conceptions of security are still pivotal in determining the actions of states, the increasing prevalence of transnational threats and security interdependence has facilitated the rise of regionally coherent subsystems within which the pursuit of security cannot be achieved in the absence of cooperation.
A profusion of economic theories provide explanations for specific expressions of development, but none unite the pieces into a unified theory that adequately defines the central principles, process and stages of development.
Technological development far outpaces social accomplishments in even the most advanced societies. But since World War II, the goal of universal education has been accepted throughout the world. Technological development has created unprecedented job growth during this century, yet fears persist regarding "the end of work": China continues to lead the world in growth rates by liberalizing its economy while maintaining an authoritarian form of government.
It stimulated innovation by encouraging the free exchange of ideas and provided incentives for greater individual effort by legally safeguarding property from arbitrary confiscation. The purpose of this thesis is to utilise the theoretical framework of Regional Security Complex Theory (RSCT) in order to cross-compare two different regions; Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.

This book develops the idea that since decolonisation, regional patterns of security have become more prominent in international politics. The authors combine an operational theory of regional security with an empirical application across the whole of the international system.5/5(2).
