Jay Cost Spring When political scientist Harold Lasswell, writing in the mids, defined politics as the decisions society makes about "who gets what, when, and how," he might as well have been describing the debate over taxes and spending in the United States today. Butwhat happens when the focus of the political debate changes from who gets what to who loses what? This concept is unfamiliar to Americans, who have enjoyed more than years of mostly uninterrupted economic growth.
Introduction Economic growth is achieved by creating favourable conditions for it to occur. Since we did see an improved growth performance in South Africa, particularly when compared to the previous ten years.
In this assignment I gave more detail about economic achievements in South Africa since The largest sector of the economy is services which accounts for around 73 percent of GDP.
Manufacturing accounts for Within services, the most important are finance, real estate and business services In the past 20 years a number of organisations and initiatives were set up to support economic transformation, by providing financial and other support to black businesses which contributed positively to the growth of the South African economy.

A Gini coefficient of zero expresses perfect equality, where all values are the same for example where everyone has the same income. A Gini coefficient of one expresses maximal inequality among values for example, where only one person has all the income or consumption, and all others have none.
The Gini coefficient usually ranges between 0,3 highly equal and 0,7 highly unequal. However, the growing gap between imports and exports has led to a significant and growing trade deficit, which is cause for concern.
An important success story is the growth in South African exports to the rest of Africa as well as the fundamental changes in the trade profile of products exported into Africa compared to South African exports to the world.Assignment 2: Global Economy, National Economies, and Competition In the first part of the twenty-first century a great recession struck most of the countries in the world.
The next decade has been severally impacted with the consequences of this crisis. The largest effects on GDP over the decade stem from the tax act.
In CBO’s projections, it boosts the level of real GDP by an average of percent and nonfarm payroll employment by an average of million jobs over the – period.
Future science: the next 10 years. New worlds, new life, new bodies: just some of the breakthroughs we may see by , predict our panel of leading Australian scientists. Zelinsky believes.
Over the next decade, a combination of acute state revenue constraints, compet- ing demands for state resources, and ongoing changes in public attitudes toward higher education will likely result in continued shrinking and .
