    guys, for this question, is my response okay?

    Analyse 2 factors that have caused globalisation. (6 marks)

    One cause of globalisation is the fall in real transport costs, occurred due to innovation and greater privatisation of transport across the world. The increased use of containerisation for example has led to lower average transport costs. This has meant that MNC’s can locate in low wage, low cost economies and export production to other countries in order to maximise profit. This opens up new markets and creates more global trade links.

    A second cause of globalisation is reduced trade barriers. The World Trade Organisation has encouraged countries to reduce tariff barriers and other forms of protectionism, so that they can specialise according to their comparative advantage. This opens up markets to more competition. Consumers have more choice of products from around the world as increased trade between countries is encouraged. Regional Economic groups such as the EU, despite using protectionism against non-members, have encouraged free trade between members leading to more interdependence.

    what's the difference between sustainable growth and long run growth?
    Sustainable growth is growth that does not prevent future generations from achieving growth, and long run growth is just an increase the the productive capacity of the economy (LRAS shifts out).

    It's quite an easy one so start with giving the definition then move onto the pros:

    Remittances can serve to increase incomes for the recipients in developing countries and acts as a top-up to income. This can then be spent on improving their material living standards e.g. buying a car etc. and/or can be spent on improving their non-material living standards e.g. greater access to schooling and education

    Secondly, remittances can foster the growth of entrepeneurship as inididuals receving income top-ups via remittances may choose to set-up domestic businesses or purchase capital machiner- thus improving their own standard of living and alleviating poverty. Further, they may then employ other locals thus creating a multiplier effect further improving development and growth. Lastly, it can improve the quality of local schools and hospitals because remittance receivers might partly or directly give money to schools and hospitals where their children or relatives attend - thus improving development since it could improve school enrolment rates etc.

    On the other hand, leads to a brain drain effect with high skilled workers emigrating to more advanced economies (DRAW LRAS DIAGRAM SHIFTING TO THE LEFT) therefore reducing incomes and labour force.

    Remittances is almost all but sent directly to the families which means the Govt. gets no fiscal dividend from them which reduces Govt. spending on infrastructure, schools, hospital etc.

    Could lead to a moral hazard - locals choosing not to work due to remittance income

    Individual sums not large enough to fund large scale development progress

    Conclusion: It's significant but needs ODA and FDI to fill the gaps
