After reading the article on Blackboard, it makes me think deeply about the economic in the world. In the book, The Limits to Growth, it shows me the relationship between economic and population. There are five major trends of global concern. They are: population, industrialization, pollution, food production and resource depletion. While I was reading this website, I kept asking myself “Why is the global economy constrained by the energy cost of energy?” About the question does the earth have the carrying capacity for not just more people but also for those people to have higher incomes which is a middle class life like most Americans have, my answer is yes. In my point of view, most of American is middle class. They are the main part of the world. If there is no middle class, the high class would not be rich. The money that high class own become waste. So we need more and more middle class people. This article talk about future outcomes of the world economy. This sentence in the second paragraph is a great summary of the website and a great summary of the book, which is “Yet even with this caveat, the MIT researchers concluded, If present growth trends in world population, industrialization, pollution, food production, and resource depletion continue unchanged, the limits to growth on this planet will be reached sometime within the next one hundred years[...]The most probable result will be a rather sudden and uncontrollable decline in both population and industrial capacity”. I thought this article is really reality, most of the article is obvious in the world economic. It makes me think deeply about our world.
According to the video, the most impression part is how China prominent at the last several years. It is an amazing progress for the whole world. For an axis for health and axis for wealth, there is a magical relationship. The diagram show the poor and sick or rich and healthy clearly. Also the size of the round seems the population, that really make sense. This 200 years lots of change happened. As the economy growing, it really help all nations. At first all countries were poor, as times went by, every nation went up. So I think it is the benefit significant. As all countries got independent and more nations got healthier, the helps between economy made sense. With aid, trade, green technology and peace, everyone can make money and make every country be rich.
In the website about growth in China, I have my own view about Chinese economy. This is a statistics on poverty in China. During last several years China change a lot. Also I think it will rise further.
