UNST 138A: Globalization

Country Analysis

One of the major goals of this term is to better understand the nature of development, understood not only in terms of economic growth, but also in terms of improvement in the quality of life. In order to do so, a basic understanding of some of the major economic and social indicators is necessary. This corresponds to the University Studies goals of teaching quantitative literacy in communication and to its goal of studying the diversity of human experience. We will compare a sample of assignments when everyone has completed them. Finally, as you do this assignment you should study the indicators below. This will help you on the exam. You may be asked to draw on your country analysis as part of the final exam.

Listed below are terms under four headings: General Information; Economic Indicators; Government; and Quality of Life. Find information for all of the terms below. Include the source from which you took your information in brackets, e.g., United States, GDP per capital, $47,200, PPP, US dollars (World Bank).

There are many sources that provide information. Some useful resources include:

·         World Bank, http://data.worldbank.org/

·         International Monetary Fund (IMF) Data and Statistics, http://www.imf.org/external/data.htm

·         CIA – The World Factbook, https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/

·         United Nations Human Development Report, http://hdr.undp.org/en/

·         Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), http://www.oecd.org

·         United Nations World Food Programme, http://www.wfp.org/

·         The Economist Intelligence Unit (requires subscription)

If possible, you should also check statistics published by the country you are investigating.
