Is Immigration Sustainable in the Republic of Panama?
Is Immigration Sustainable in the Republic of Panama?
The recent economic and social trends in most countries around the world have kept the migratory flows far from stopping. The 2000 and 2008 financial crises were a motivation for many people to leave their country. Regarding Latin Americans, a great number of people felt attracted to other countries, rather than to the traditional destinations such as the United States and the European Union exclusively. Plus, factors as the cultural change and a stricter migratory regulation caused these citizens to focus on other countries inside Latin America., Keywords: Immigration, Publication Note: ECP 3113; Prof. Carl Schmertmann
Sustainability of Immigration
Sustainability of Immigration
This article, written for FSU Class ECP 3113, uses concepts of Economics of Population to describe the sustainability of migratory movements. A case study describing immigration in the Republic of Panama is used to introduce the concept of sustainability in migratory flows. Sustainability is analyzed from the perspective of different indicators such as economic growth, unemployment, birth rate, and social perception, among others. This flow is compared to flows received by industrialized economies, and this proportion is used to determine the sustainability of this migratory flow in the short and long term., Keywords: Sustainability, Immigration, Demographics, Economics, Impact, Panama, Economics of Population
Tariffs and their Impact on Global Trade and Local Economies
Tariffs and their Impact on Global Trade and Local Economies
In order to create sustainable societies, countries follow the well-known principles of supply and demand of goods that are involved in international trade. Due to the current importance of this trade, some important regulations have been implemented to maintain order in this flow that takes place beyond national borders. These regulations can be exemplified by the different tariffs that regulate the global market. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, a tariff is “a schedule of duties imposed by a government on imported or in some countries exported goods.” Nowadays, tariffs are an important concept in International Business, for it involves other topics as the difference in cultures, economic trends, and international politics., Keywords: Tarifs, Publication Note: MAN 3600; Dr. Timothy Wilson
