The Jamaican economy benefits vastly from migration baring the fact that it’s most skilled set of people prefer to seek jobs in other countries rather than in their own. Once their citizen start working investment becomes an option to set up businesses, schools and hospitals, so over time the economy will grow and become more productive. Families also benefit from this in a sense that if it were not for migration poverty and unemployment would be prevalent. Jobs are vastly created because of the excess funding being deposited in the Jamaican economy. The gains from this in turn boost the economy and from this training programs and institutes to educate our youth and make our country more environmental friendly are
Some Sierra Leone citizens have begun importing foreign rice due to higher prices in Sierra Leone which lowers the incomes of farmers. Due to the war many farm families were displaced and their farms were no longer operational. This led to a shortage in food which increased the price, making it unaffordable for many. Due to these issue faced in the agriculture sector of post war Sierra Leone many of there citizens have succumbed to poverty and has resulted in Sierra Leone becoming the eight most impoverished country in the world.
Corn is the major food for Kenyans, but the yield of corn is not stable due to the fluctuant weather condition. For instance, Kenya was in a food shortage during the severe droughts in 2004. In 2012, agriculture exports (horticultural produce and tea) collected $5.942 billion revenues, but the imports ($14.39 billion) the product was more than exports. Thus, it can be seen that Kenya had a serious trade deficit in the world market. The main import products are machinery and transportation equipment, petroleum products, motor vehicle, iron and steel, resins and plastics.
In 1992 there fiscal deficit widened to 2.4% of there GDP and they did not settle the arrears on the bilateral debt which lead to the cancellation of all the official and private creditors. Fluctuating prices in the oil, timber, and uranium, plus poor fiscal management has also hurt the economy. Gabon’s GPD (gross domestic product) is estimated to be around 7.7 billion dollars. The GPD is divided into three sections the first being agriculture making up 8%. Gabon’s agriculture consists of cocoa, coffee, sugar, palm oil, cattle, and fish.
By 1930, as a result of the world depression, external markets for Turkish agricultural exports had collapsed, causing a sharp decline in national income. The government stepped in during the early 1930s to promote economic recovery, following a doctrine known as etatism (see Glossary). Growth slowed during the worst years of the depression but between 1935 and 1939 reached 6 percent per year. During the 1940s, the economy stagnated, in large part because maintaining armed neutrality during World War II increased the country's military expenditures while almost entirely curtailing foreign trade. After 1950 the country suffered economic disruptions about once a decade; the most serious crisis occurred in the late... ... middle of paper ... ...h. Structure of the Economy In the years after World War II, the economy became capable of supplying a much broader range of goods and services.
Like other nations, Kenya's coffee sector, which used to be the country's prime foreign exchange earner, has been badly affected by plummeting world prices and now trails behind horticulture, tea and tourism in the local economy. With world prices falling by almost 70 percent since 1997, coffee farmers have complained they now get very little return for their hard work. Many now consider coffee to be a liability and, despite a law, which prohibits farmers from uprooting their coffee plants, the farmers are clearing their land for other crops. Coffee production has plummeted from a peak 130,000 metric tons in 1988 to only 52,000 tons in 2002. A further deficit is being projected due to big players like Kakuzi bowing out of the coffee industry, and Socfinaf stumping over 50% of their crop.
Because larger scale plantations are able to sell a cheaper product it makes it almost impossible for small family farms to compete without cutting down net profits (Nelson & Galvez, 2000). In order for cocoa farmers in impoverished countries to increase national wealth they need to increase their productivity. Wealth in countries is directly correlated with the nations productivity, and in largely cocoa based nations efficiency in cocoa farms are very important. Wealth allows farmers a greater amount of leisure time to invest in education, health care, and capital equipment. While companies, like fair-trade, help provide farmers with health and fair crop prices to increase national wealth farmers have to increase productivity and increase capital investments (Nelson & Galvez, 2000).
(Akhter & Awudu, 2010, 176) And their finding suggests that adoption of biotechnology has a positive and significant impact on household income and poverty reduction. The impact assessment of Bt cotton was in Pakistan. Africa is like Pakistan- they are both developing countries and both countries have a large proportion of population make a living by crop production. Therefore, the conclusion that biotechnology can benefit Africa farmers from increasing their income and living standards may be derived.
As time passed, other economies grew, while the agriculture economy diminished by half in just 50 years and was overtaken by the manufacturing industry. (Doc G) Farmers struggled for success and support, but instead received very little of either. According to the Agricultural Department, the summer of 1894 brought many hardships to the crops nationwide. Crops in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota all were damaged by droughts, while New Jersey crops suffered from an abundance of rain. Temperatures and insect also devastated the crops.
Fair Trade Coffee Fair Trade promotes socially and environmentally sustainable techniques and long-term relationships between producers, traders and consumers The world coffee industry is in crisis. A flood of cheap, lower-quality coffee beans have pushed world market prices down to a 30-year low. Many now earn less for their crop than it cost them to grow. Many coffee farmers around the world receive market payments that are lower than the costs of production, forcing them into a cycle of poverty and debtWithout urgent action, 25 million coffee growers' face ruin. The knock-on effects for national economies are just as catastrophic.
