Housing is a major purchase requiring long-term financing, and the factors that are associated with well functioning housing finance systems are those that enable the provision of long-term finance. Across all countries, controlling for country size, we find that countries with stronger legal rights for borrowers and lenders (through collateral and bankruptcy laws), deeper credit information systems, and a more stable macroeconomic environment have deeper housing finance systems. These same factors also help explain the variation in housing finance across emerging market economies. Across developed countries, which tend to have low macroeconomic volatility and relatively extensive credit information systems, variation in the strength of legal rights helps explain the extent of housing...

Malaria in Rural Tanzania

...Malaria in Rural Tanzania Monica Thompson SOC300 August 29, 2012 Dr. Mark Perry Introduction Approximately half of the world's population is at risk for contracting malaria, particularly those living in lower-income countries” (WHO, 2013). It is a major public health issue that plagues developing countries around the world; however, “more than seventy percent of the total morbidity is in Africa” (Snow et al., 2005). Although both preventive measures and treatments exist, malaria prevails as one of the biggest killers in Sub-Saharan Africa. Children, pregnant women and HIV-infected individuals are most susceptible to contracting the illness. Tanzania, located in east Africa, is among one of the poorest of countries in the world and is burdened with malaria. There are several factors that contribute to the malaria endemic in Tanzania, including: poverty, environmental and special factors, and access to healthcare. Background Malaria has been in existence since 2700 B.C. (Lambert, 2003). In fact, the ancient Chinese wrote about its symptoms in their medical writings. It is believed to have originated in Western-Africa. In 1879 Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran, a Public Health researcher began his studies on malaria in an Algerian hospital. He noticed that there was a pigment in the blood of people who suffered from malaria, but he was unsure of what that pigment was. After ten years of......

India 2025

...India@2025: Perils, Promises and Prospects Since the independence India has always witnessed swing of fortunes. Seen as a leader of Third World countries in during 1950s, the country soon slumped into a food deficient nation in mid 1960s after a severe drought. It was followed by Green revolution where India turned the tables. The seventh decade of twentieth century saw populist campaigns like Garibi Hatao and imposition of emergency in 1975 to restoration of democracy in 1977. Not so long ago in 1991, India witnessed its worst economic crisis. But on the pretext of sound recoveries and deep seeded principles of democracy, India entered twenty first century as an emerging global power. And post 2008 global slump, India displayed remarkable resilience especially in financial sectors when compared other economies. With rising literacy rate cutting across genders and rising per capita income, the future is no less than promising. And if one goes by the words of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru where he says “The achievements we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, to the greater triumphs and achievements that awaits” It’s the right time to analyze and anticipate the challenge that awaits us if we aim to appear as a global giant by 2025 and devise a roadmap to tackle the same. One of striking feature of the great Indian story has been the paradox it has displayed. Despite being in the League of Nations who survive well the global recession and enjoys the......

The largest ethnic groups are Sukum with over three million people, and the Haya, Nyamwezi, and Chagga who have over one million people each. All four of the major African language groups are spoken; the majority of them are Bantu speakers, the others are Khosian, Nilotic, and Cushitic. These ethnic groups, unlike many of the countries around them, have found ways to live together within the country without disintegrating into civil war. The population is only about twenty-seven percent urbanized; the rest of the population lives in rural areas. Education in Tanzania is very important formal education last for fifteen years. They separate their educational years by pre-primary, primary, junior secondary, and senior secondary. The literacy level of the country is about sixty-eight percent, meaning at the age of fifteen a person is able to read and write in Kiswahili, Arabic, or English. The education system on both the mainland and Zanzibar are bilingual. On the mainland the languages are Kiswahili and English and on Zanzibar Arabic and English are required. Much of the literature available is in either English or Arabic because the indigenous culture is passed on through oral traditions.

China in 2025

...China in 2025 China will undoubtedly be one of the decisive actors in the international scene in the XXI century. - She currently owns 20% of the world's population. - Produces almost 5% of world’s wealth. - Represents 12% of world demand for primary energy. - Holds 1.3 trillion dollars of currency reserves, what makes her the first world recipient ahead Japan. - It has become the second destination of foreign direct investment (FDI) behind the United States. -The amount of his transactions in goods and services is 1400 billion dollars or 7% of world total. In 2025: -According to most current extrapolations, the Chinese population will be 1.44 billion. -Its demand of oil will increase by 135%, 260% for gas and 105% for coal. Energy imports and investments in infrastructure will be needed to sustain the growth. This should lead China to triple its GDP by 2025. And make her the second world power behind the United States. (Third if we consider the cumulative GDP of the European Union). However, China could even overtake all countries in terms of purchasing power parity. (PPP) (The PPP can measure how much a currency can buy goods and services in each area compare.) China will then become the largest trading power in the world. The East and south Asia will produce about 40% of world GDP in 2025. China will have a decisive influence on the future world order.

Economic Projection

...Economic Projection Macroeconomics In this report I give the statics that I found for each of the economic indicators for 2012 and 2013 along with what I found of the current state of 2014 then I make my best guess with the information I have as to how 2015 will look. I feel from what I have experienced as well as from my research, watching the news and just listening to people talk, 2015 will improve slightly from our current state as well as from comparing it to 2012 and 2013. The real GDP growth for 2012 was 1.6% and 3.13% in 2013. So far in 2014 it is at 2.43%. Given these numbers we show that production had a significant rise in 2013 and then has slowed down in 2014 slightly, but is still holding steady. I say that as the economy continues to do better so will production. I am predicting that 2015 will be about the same as 2013 at 3.13%. Unemployment has been steadily going down from each year. It has lowered from 8.1% in 2012 to 7.4% in 2013 to its current 6.4%. I think that in 2015 the unemployment will go down to about 5.4%. I believe the drop of unemployment is mainly due to people giving up on the job search. Some have either not been willing to relocate or have went back to school and some just have given up completely or have switched over to disability income. The CPI has increased slightly from 0.1% in 2012 and 2013 and at this time it is 0.3%. I think inflation will go up in 2015 to 0.6%. As unemployment drops inflation usually rises. I am......

Preventing Hiv/Aids in Tanzania

...No End in sight: Breaking the vicious cycle of hiv/aids in Tanzania Abstract Tanzania is a country of close to 40 million people, out of which 3 million are living with HIV/AIDS. This disease has been declared an epidemic by the WHO standards, and Tanzania is described as a country “experiencing a mature, generalized HIV epidemic, which is still growing” (WHO Report, 2008). The combination of a high infection rate and a lack of available resources to address HIV/AIDS make it more than difficult to bring the levels of this disease down. Tanzania has a national office dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS, and it receives close to $400 million dollars a year in funds directed at combatting the various issues associated with the epidemic (Global Fund, 2011). However, there is no indication that this large sum has been used to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This money has been lost somewhere in the trickle down from foreign funding agencies and has most likely landed in the pockets of corrupt officials. The policy that the Tanzanian Commission for AIDS (TACAIDS, 2011) and the Prime Minister’s office has released attempts to accomplish too much in one go, making the overall effect of the policy somewhat flat. There needs to be a campaign that shocks the country out of its current state of stagnation. By using a social campaign that employs education in all facets of life, at school, on the radio, and in the community, HIV/AIDS awareness can become an apparent part of everyday......

Small Business Failure in Tanzania

...from a single office, retail store or service outlet. It is even possible to run a small business directly out of your home, without any company facilities. 2.0 Reasons to the failure of small business in the 2nd year of operation • Insufficient capital The common fatal mistake for many failed businesses in Tanzania is having insufficient operating funds. Business owners underestimate how much money is needed and they are forced to close before they even have had a fair chance to succeed. They also may have an unrealistic expectation of incoming revenues from sales. It is imperative to ascertain how much money your business will require; not only the costs of starting, but the costs of staying in business. It is important to take into consideration that many businesses take a year or two to get going. This means you will need enough funds to cover all costs until sales can eventually pay for these costs. • Lack of planning It is critical for all businesses to have a business plan. Many small businesses in Tanzania fail because of fundamental shortcomings in their business planning. It must be realistic and based on accurate, current information and educated projections for the future. Anyone who has ever been in charge of a successful major event knows that were it not for their careful, methodical, strategic planning -- and hard work -- success would not have followed. The same could be said of most business successes. • Overexpansion A leading cause of business......

Climate Policy Framework of Tanzania

...Essay on the role of greenhouse gas emissions trading in the climate policy framework of Tanzania At the 13th conference of parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), held in Bali 2007, the agreement was to implement a REDD 1 policy in developing countries, to replace the first commitment period of Kyoto Protocol (2008-12). The REDD policy is designed to encourage developing countries with tropical forests to undertake measures that will minimize the rate of deforestation and forest degradation in exchange for receiving tradable carbon abatement credits financed by developed countries. It is in this regard, the greenhouse gas emission trading in Tanzania is conducted under the framework the UN-REDD policy framework. The framework emphasises the involvement of the local community in the design and implementation of the REDD strategy. It also recommends that the REDD strategy needs to be pro-poor. Greenhouse emissions trading can play a major role in a cost-effective climate policy framework. In Tanzania, there are various REDD related innovations and technologies already in the country that I foresee to help increase carbon sinks, avoid reducing carbon sinks, and reduce emissions from productive activities. Some of the REDD related innovations and technologies that Tanzania can offer in the international REDD architecture are:  Afforestation and reforestation activities - this is likely to be successful as a pro-poor REDD activity, due to...
