LAW of WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION
About two thirds of the 159 members of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) are developing countries. They play an increasingly important and active role in the WTO because of their numbers, because they are becoming more important in the global economy, and because they increasingly look to trade as a vital tool in their development efforts. Developing countries are a highly diverse group often with very different views and concerns.
In view of the above:
Why are there special provisions in WTO agreements for developing countries?
Do these provisions provide a solution to the issue of the effective participation of developing countries in WTO decision-making?
Is it necessary to develop an understanding of the different techniques and tools used in the agreements to differentiate the obligations of or towards developing countries?
Research Paper, Psychology: Knowledge and Scientific Methods
1) Name and describe (in your own words) the Six Principles of Scientific Thinking (Lilienfeld, Chapter 1), and state why you believe it is important to use them when thinking about behavior.
2) Find two examples of claims made in newspapers, magazines, television, or the Internet relevant to Psychology that you think should be evaluated using one of the 6 principles of scientific thinking. Briefly describe both of the claims, and state the media source where you found each claim. (Note: you must suggest a different principle of scientific thinking that would be useful to evaluate each of the two claims.) Each of these 2 sources must be cited both in the text of your paper and in the reference section (bibliography) using APA format.
3) For both of these claims, state and describe the principle that you think should be applied, and discuss how the principle is used (or not used) in the claim.
4) Examples of issues relevant to Psychology that have been discussed in various media lately include; standardized testing in education, law enforcement policies (training programs for officers, technology used to modify peoples behavior such as automated speed monitors etc), gun control issues, the use of social media by extremist groups to recruit people to their causes. These are examples that you may use, or you may choose an issue of interest to you.
World without brands:
…A world without brands… It existed once, and still exists, more or less, in the worlds poorest places. No raucous advertising, no ugly billboards, no McDonalds. Yet, given a chance and a bit of money, people flee this Eden. They seek out Budweiser instead of their local tipple… What should we conclude? That people are pawns in the hands of giant companies with huge advertising budgets and global reach? Or that brands bring something that people think is better than what they had before?
(The Economist, 2001a: 11)
Critically discuss the statement. Think about some inherited presuppositions which link to the binary between so called east and west, i.e. developing and developed world which is inherited from the past. Think about the notion that most of the popular brands originate in the developed world, but through their marketing strategies, and inherited presuppositions, these are considered more valuable then the local ones. What is the role of international marketing in this process? How does it affect bottom of the pyramid market?
