38 maps that explain the global economy

38 maps that explain the global economy | AP Human GeographyNRHS | Scoop.it
Commerce knits the modern world together in a way that nothing else quite does. Almost anything you own these days is the result of a complicated web of global interactions. And there's no better way to depict those interactions than some maps.

Many ideological issues  relate to economics - and many economic issues related to geography. Take a look at these maps and see if they help you understand the global economy and where Canada fits in. Consider how different ideologies might view these maps and the data that they contain.

Muslim beauty pageant challenges Miss World contest | AP Human GeographyNRHS | Scoop.it

"Muslim women from six countries defy western beauty ideals, emphasize spirituality.  Organizers of the event said they wanted to show Muslim women there is an alternative to the idea of beauty put forward by the British-run Miss World pageant. They also stress that opposition to the pageant can be expressed non-violently."

This article is a really good example on how beauty is a cultural perception. American pleople have a skewed idea of beauty, those shown above not being in that category. In other countries, these women might be extreamly beautiful, but the American perception doesn't believe the same things.

MIAMI (AP) — Salsa overtaking ketchup as America's No. 1 condiment was just the start.


These days, tortillas outsell burger and hot dog buns; sales of tortilla chips trump potato chips; and tacos and burritos have become so ubiquitously "American," most people don't even consider them ethnic.  Welcome to the taste of American food in 2013.

This article  showcases the acculturation of Hispanic foods into the American menu, and applies  to the  concepts of culture unit. It focuses on the ever increasing sale of tortillas, salsa, and tortilla chips, and also the adaptation of Hispanic flavors and food into Classic American restaurants. This trend promotes predictions that tortilla chips will outsell potato chips, while salsa already outsells ketchup. Every community has proof of this, as ethnic foods begin to make their way out of the international food aisle and into the aisles of bread and condiments.

This is a stride of different cultures,  a little ancient and modern culture. When the Turkish immigrant came over to Germany because they needed workers (Germans stopped having so many kids) it help form the curry wurst. They also use American ketchup because Americans were over there for the war and they ate this too. The curry powder came way of United Kingdom. Basically the population learned from all these cultures and  created one huge hit.

T-Shirt Travels

When filmmaker Shantha Bloemen was stationed in a remote village in Zambia as a worker with an international aid organization, she had to adjust to living in a different culture. But one thing struck her as oddly familiar: almost everyone in the village wore secondhand clothing from the West. Bloemen began to imagine stories about the people who used to wear the clothing, wondering if the original owners had any idea that the castoffs they had given to charities ended up being sold to Africans half a world away.

It's fascinating to look at the effects of globalization, and a great look at how economies change.  When people in the Western world drop a bag of clothes off at a charity, I doubt we think they'd end up in a village in Africa. Warning:  it does get a little preachy at the end.

Westernization is a popular theme thats happening in the East. Even though people don't know it, the clothes they give away may be some that are taken to places like Africa. Hand-me-downs are popular in the U.S. but even more so in Africa. The t-shirt you give away to someone might end up across the world. Who knows.

The "Seinfeld of Saudi Arabia"

"[This video] explores the idea Western “cultural invasion” into Saudi Arabia, and satirizes Saudi views of America in the process. The influence of Western, particularly American, culture is a big, touchy topic in much of the world, with people torn between their love of Michael Jackson and their desire to patronize compatriots over foreigners. It’s about national pride and about preserving one’s own culture.  For English captions (click the little 'CC' button in the bottom-right corner after pressing play).

 

Skip to about 3:15 to see the segment on the Western 'cultural invasion' of Saudi Arabia and, appropriately, a very funny bit on attempting a 'reverse cultural invasion' of Saudi cultural in America."

Jess Pitrone's comment, April 29, 2013 9:42 PM
Throughout the world, American pop culture is what defines us, and it is definitely what we use to define ourselves, as well. When we look to other countries, we look to see what their popular culture is like and compare it to our own. I love this video because I think that it is poking fun at both American popular culture and Saudi culture. Where American pop culture is so large and all encompassing, Saudi pop culture is small and not nearly as significant in defining its people.
When we, as Americans, see Saudi Arabians, we see a repressed culture, but just because they don’t have the pop culture that we have, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have a distinct identity. Obviously the Saudis have a distinct identity, and obviously they aren’t afraid to poke fun at what Americans think of their culture.
Peter Siner's comment, April 30, 2013 9:29 AM
It seems as though throughout history there have always been tendencies for the Middle East to fall under a westernized mindset. Organizations and rulers throughout Middle Eastern history had challenged this idea. However, especially in todays society we are seeing a shift where the people of the middle east are becoming more and more accepting of westernized practices. The biggest hump however seems to be overcoming the religious boundaries that tie down the Middle East to its traditional ways. This process of westernization is not one that can be completed over night and it will most certainly be a very slow process that takes the time and effort of the people to make it happen. We are already seeing popular westernized culture integrate with the traditional culture of the middle east. With time, it is almost inevitable for the views of the western world to completely influence the people especially since the younger generations are so willing to change.

Why would someone want to do that to a horse? Horses are a great addition to the world because they can come in handy when it comes to pulling cargo and other objects also. Horses are having helped people for hundreds of years. I would go crazy if I found out I was eating horse meet. I am very surprised that those people from Ireland did not find out. There should really be an organization that checks the meet before it goes to supermarkets and other places.

Why Indians love cricket

Why Indians love cricket | AP Human GeographyNRHS | Scoop.it
TO OUTSIDERS, the magnitude of Indians' love for cricket is as incomprehensible as its feverish intensity. On February 4th India awarded the Bharat Ratna, its highest civilian honour, to Sachin Tendulkar, a recently retired batsman. Millions in India, a country of 1.3 billion people and only one nationally-popular game, celebrated wildly. When India's national side plays a big game, an estimated 400m watch on television. Yet cricket's take-off in India is a highly improbable development. The game is demanding to play properly, requiring space, a good turf pitch and expensive equipment—which only a relative handful of Indian cricketers have access to. Most will never strap on pads or bowl with a leather ball. So why do they so love the game?

The fact that Indians love cricket is hardly surprising if you are aware of their colonial past. This article provides that background for those unaware of England's huge effect on the nation. After the conquest of India by the British quickly English language and culture were both spread and forced upon the people of India. The people have adopted these English traits and it has been said that "The last true Englishman will be an Indian".

Alec Castagno's curator insight, December 17, 2014 3:19 PM

Cricket has spread throughout India because of its history as a prestigious British sport. The spread of its popularity across India shows how important social factors can influence a population. It was adopted by the Indian elite trying to mimic the British elite, and now has spread to the majority of Indians. The involvement of a Prime Minister shows the importance cricket has in Indian society.

How Vietnam became a coffee giant

How Vietnam became a coffee giant | AP Human GeographyNRHS | Scoop.it

"Think of coffee and you will probably think of Brazil, Colombia, or maybe Ethiopia. But the world's second largest exporter today is Vietnam. How did its market share jump from 0.1% to 20% in just 30 years, and how has this rapid change affected the country?"

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, December 8, 2014 1:31 PM

Coffee has very much helped but also hurt Vietnam.  After the war Vietnam was a very poor country but with the introduction of coffee growing into the economy the number of poor people has greatly declined.  Although in Vietnam tea is the beverage of choice, coffee is grown as an export crop.  Not only is money coming in from the growth and exportation of the coffee bean but also from companies that have places in Vietnam to create coffee from start to finish, from bean to bag.  Unfortunately due to more coffee plantations being needed deforestation has happened at an alarming rate, making room for more places to grow coffee.  Also unexploded mines are still thought to be scattered throughout the country making the fields an extremely dangerous place to work.  The environment isn't being helped by the farmers either.  These farmers of coffee have no idea how to properly grow coffee and just throw a bunch of fertilizer and water on the plants and hope it grows.  This is a problem when there are better techniques that could be used to grow coffee that are better for the environment.  These people need to be taught how to constructively grow coffee so it doesn't have such a negative effect on the environment.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 12, 2014 1:30 PM

Coffee is often synonymous with Colombia and Brazil, but Vietnam exports the second largest amount of coffee in the world. Despite the amount of coffee produced, the Vietnamese still mostly drink tea, leaving the coffee to be exported. In the age of colonialism, the French brought coffee to Vietnam, and they have grown it ever since, but a gamble in the industry after the Vietnam War provided the country with a large industry. The Coffee Industry has allowed many people to make money, though few have become rich from the industry. Even though coffee has helped decrease poverty levels, the environmental impacts are beginning to overshadow the industry. The development of land for agriculture is changing the landscape, and the desire to expand this industry could decimate the amount of uncultivated lands. 

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, December 15, 2014 10:37 PM

After the war, Vietnam was left a poor country, but with the introduction of Coffee things have been looking up for Vietnam. While the selling of coffee is bringing in extra income and has resulted in a decline in poverty, the poverty rate has gone from 60% to an astounding 10% since the selling of coffee, the article says that only a few have become very rich. While selling coffee is bringing in extra revenue, it has resulted in the deforestation of areas in order to make the coffee which is not going to be good in the long run.
