La geografía tiene que ver con todo.

Con ella entendemos el desarrollo humano.

What America Manufactures

What America Manufactures | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"It's a myth that the U.S. doesn't make anything anymore."  The U.S. economy still produces more through manufacturing tangible goods ($1.5 trillion) than it does in providing services ($600 billion) for the international market.  The maps and graphs in this article are great teaching materials.  The impact of NAFTA is shown powerfully in the regionalization of U.S. trade partners, making this salient material for a discussion on supranationalism as well.

This article and map were very interesting. I like how the article breaks down what is being made and exported in America, because honestly I had no idea, as it seems everyone grumbles that we do not make anything more. Granted, we make a lot less than we have in the past, but we are still manufactoring quite an array of goods and services

Liam Michelsohn's curator insight, December 10, 2013 12:34 PM

In the current ecnomny america is cleary importing more  than its exporting, but suprisingly not by much.  The mos common thing to find on many of todays products, cloths, phones, ect. is made in china , and beacuse of all this its a popular belife that  America doesnt make anything any more, we just buy all of our stuff from china. While this isnt true, america does not produce alot of final produts to distubite world wide. However they do have a large export of goods maily industral supply and capital goods, along with many services that add up to 2.1 trillion dollars. So while we might not be the leading  manufacture for plastic toys or cloths, its  nice to be reminded that we still contibute some things to the global trade community. 

Kenny Dominguez's curator insight, December 11, 2013 4:09 PM


This is great because now we can witness the creation of jobs in the country which can help the country get out of the depression that it is in. it also can help people get jobs and not have to worry about if there unemployment check is going enough to cover there expenses. Also people that are working are less likely to get depressed because they are not trapped in there homes because now they have something that is distracting them. But the United States is seeing a great improvement because of all the things being manufactured here. One good example is the Honda accord power plant and the ford motor company plant and even general motors in Detroit. all of these companies is helping the Americans get back into the workforce.

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, March 15, 2013 8:28 AM

This article is full of statistics, but they help show the effect of domestic migration on several cities in the Southwest United States. Domestic migration is the movement of people within a country, such as from one state to another. This is good news for some cities--more people can mean more demand for housing, more work for construction companies, and more jobs for people in that area. However, even though growth had slowed down in the Southwest region over the last few years, the population is still quite high for some resources to support. Can you think of a resource that we study in our Geography class that is highly affected by the population?

Population 7 Billion

Population 7 Billion | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Just 200 years ago, there were only 1 billion people on the planet, and over the next 150 years, that number grew to 3 billion. But in the past 50 years, the global population has more than doubled, and the UN projects that it could possibly grow to 15 billion by the year 2100. As the international organization points out, this increasing rate of change brings with it enormous challenges."

WORLD POPULATION

Alison Antonelli's curator insight, December 4, 2013 6:36 AM

This should definitely be a major concern for the human planet becasue if people are multiplying that quickly and staying alive longer than the futre could be facing some serious problems. For example; the food supply could run low, shelter could definitely become scarce, diease could become a high risk becuase there are so many people that are close which means they could be sharing a number of things. 

Lona Pradeep Parad's curator insight, May 28, 3:58 PM

This is just a clarification that the world population will continue to grow bigger and bigger, and along with that UN projects will increase.

Emma Lafleur's curator insight, February 23, 2013 4:15 PM

This is a great article that illustrates how immigration, technology, innovation, children, education, politics, and the economy all come together. It portrays how the lenience toward immigration can help all of these things because new people bring new ideas, and new ideas are great for technology, and in the society of the majority of the world today, technology is a good thing and has a domino effect on everything else. Uruguay has relatively lenient immigration laws when compared to its neighboring countries, and therefore people can more easily come into the country and help start-ups grow. Also, because of where Uruguay is, it is affected by the technology and ideas of the countries surrounding it.
