Dear Learners, In this video we will be discussing the natural resources and economic development and why natural resources affect economic growth of a country. the principal factor affecting the development of an economy is the natural resources or land. “Land” as used in economics includes natural resources such as the fertility of land, its situation and composition, forest wealth, minerals, climate, water resources and sea resources etc ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For downloading notes in PDF format please visit my Blog https://thedynamicstudy.blogspot.com/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos of OB in English visit this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6lEV... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos of OB in Hindi visit this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krD6f... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please go through the video and don't forget to share your views and subscribe the channel to keep the content open and reachable to students. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Keep on watching, keep on learning! #DynamicStudy Our aim is to make free content for each and every student in our society, so if you want to support this cause you can do it in two ways 1.

If you look at the African continent, perhaps the first word to come to mind is "enormous." And that's true. You could fit most of the United States, China, India, and a lot of Europe, into Africa. But if you compare Africa to Europe, Europe has two to three times the length of coastline that Africa has. But what does coastline length have to do with anything? Well, coasts mean access to water. As benign as water might seem, it’s a major driver of economic growth. Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, argued that access to water reduced the cost of trade, and gave merchants access to larger markets. These larger markets incentivized specialization and innovation. These twin processes ultimately spurred trade activity, and consequently, economic growth. As an end result, civilization tended to grow wherever trade was easiest. If you want proof of this, think of a few major cities. Look at Istanbul, New York, Venice, Hong Kong, London, and similar areas. What do they all have in common? They all sit near a major coast or a major river. In contrast, look at some of the poorest areas in the world—places like Kampala, or Pointe-Noire. These places are all landlocked. Since goods are easier to transport over water than over land, trade in landlocked areas is more expensive. And what happens when trade is more expensive? It becomes harder to spark economic growth. What this all means is economic growth is not only affected by a country’s rules and institutions, but by a country’s natural blessings, or natural hindrances, too. The effects of geography on growth cannot be discounted.

So, if economics is about choices and how we use our resources, econ probably has a lot to say about the environment, right? Right! In simple terms, pollution is just a market failure. The market is producing more pollution than society wants. This week, Adriene and Jacob focus on the environment, and how economics can be used to control and reduce pollution and emissions. You'll learn about supply and demand, incentives, and how government intervention influences the environment. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Factors of Production (Resources) There 4 factors of production, namely, land/raw materials, labor, capital and entrepreneurship. Why is entrepreneurship considered a type of resource? Well, because an entrepreneur brings other 3 factors of production (land/raw materials, capital and labor) together to make production possible. Why is money not considered a type of resource in economics? What is the difference between economic capital and financial capital?

Natural resource economics deals with the supply, demand, and allocation of the Earth's natural resources. One main objective of natural resource economics is to better understand the role of natural resources in the economy in order to develop more sustainable methods of managing those resources to ensure their availability to future generations. Resource economists study interactions between economic and natural systems, with the goal of developing a sustainable and efficient economy. This video is targeted to blind users.

BOOK REVIEW NATURAL RESOURCES AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT International Economic Law Perspectives Edited by Celine Tan and Julio Faundez ISBN: 978 1 78347 837 8 (book) 978 1 78347 838 5 (ebook) Edward Elgar Publishing Limited www.e-elgar.com www.elgaronline.com IMPROVING THE GOVERNANCE OF WORLD NATURAL RESOURCES: A COMPENDIUM OF CURRENT LEGAL PERSPECTIVES FROM EDWARD ELGAR An appreciation by Elizabeth Robson Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers and Reviews Editor, “The Barrister” It would seem, at first glance, that the natural readership base for this book would be international lawyers specializing in environmental law. But no -- and not necessarily. Published recently by Edward Elgar Limited, the book is actually an excellent research handbook and a distinguished one at that. Comprising fifteen carefully researched articles by as many international contributors from top universities worldwide, it reflects the international disquiet regarding the governance (or lack of it) of natural resources, especially in situations where often obvious flaws in governance – particularly in developing countries -- can wreak devastating consequences within local populations. In such circumstances, almost inevitable tensions can arise between, say, investors and local communities affected, often adversely, by natural resources projects. Both from the University of Warwick (where discussions on these and related issues took place), editors Celine Tan and Julio Faundez remark that the chapters contained in this volume ‘highlight the fact that the international governance and management of natural resources has become an important area for international research law and policy-making as ‘conflict over their use becomes more acute’. The comment is made that while natural resources are central to global economic growth, problems often arise in the shape and form of legal, territorial and political disputes between states with in -- the worst situations -- negative impact on human rights. ‘These tensions’, say the editors ‘will only be resolved if the international community establishes a comprehensive and equitable legal framework for the regulation of natural resources’. This book will do much to advance the debate on the ways and means by which just such an equitable legal and political framework might possibly be achieved. It maintains a clear focus on the intersection between issues of regulation and governance on the one hand -- and environmental law, human rights law and other areas of international law, on the other. The articles on these points certainly cover a broad range of enquiry, from investment treaties. political risk insurance, tropical forests and climate change, to global value chains and the role of the WTO -- and of course, much more. Information-rich and erudite, this book with its emphasis on responsibility in the exploitation of natural resources, provides advocates and practitioners in this area of law with a lot of ammunition in disputes, debates and the more than occasional court battle on environmental and related issues. Specialists in political science and economics as they pertain to public policy, will also find the book useful, as it is further enriched by copious footnoting and lengthy and detailed bibliographies at the end of each article throughout. The publication date is cited as at 25th August 2017.

Do you have time for a few quick questions? What is Sustainable Development and Why is it Important? Waterpedia supports the Sustainable Development Goals. But we need to cooperate to achieve the 2030 agenda for sustainable development and we need you to be on board. Are you with us? A video from Waterpedia on #SDGsSaturday. Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The goal of which is to achieve balance/harmony between environmental sustainability, economic sustainability, and socio-political sustainability. Environmentally sustainable economic growth refers to economic development that meets the needs of all without leaving future generations with fewer natural resources than those we enjoy today. The essence of this form of development is a stable relationship between human activities and the natural world, which does not diminish the prospects for future generations to enjoy a quality of life at least as good as our own. The idea of environmentally sustainable economic growth is not new. Many cultures over the course of human history have recognized the need for harmony between the environment, society, and economy. The ‘environmentally sustainable economic growth’ is the synonym to the prevalent concept of ‘Sustainable Development’.

His main research interests are in natural resources, environmental economics and economic development, but his background has been mainly macroeconomics, international economics and public finance. With Rick's wide base of knowledge he offered an interesting look into the world of natural resources. During the seminar Rick presented his views on what role DFI's can take in developing and emerging countries with respect to sustainable economic development and natural resources. He elaborated on the major trends he has identified in the field and how FMO could anticipate in the future. Do we have to perceive these assets as a curse or a blessing?

The academic discipline of international trade has been revolutionized in recent years by a new focus on the role of firms in the global economy. New data sources have revealed previously unsuspected features of the importance of global firms, and new analytic approaches have been developed to rationalize these findings and to explore their implications for theory and policy. Professor Peter Neary of Oxford University will review these new developments and ask what lessons can be learned from them. How do they affect our understanding of the workings of the global economy? And what are their implications for policy-makers and concerned citizens? Peter Neary Peter Neary is Professor of Economics at Oxford University and a Professorial Fellow of Merton College Oxford. Born in 1950 in Drogheda, Ireland,he was educated at University College Dublin and Oxford, where he completed his D.Phil. in 1978. From 1980 to 2006 he was Professor of Political Economy at University College Dublin. His publications include Measuring the Restrictiveness of International Trade Policy (with Jim Anderson, MIT Press, 2005) as well as over a hundred professional papers, mainly on international trade. Peter is a Fellow of the British Academy and the Econometric Society, and a former President of the European Economic Association. He has lectured widely, including the 2002 Ohlin Lectures at the Stockholm School of Economics and the 2008-2009 Graham Lecture at Princeton, and was the inaugural recipient of the Royal Irish Academy Gold Medal in the Social Sciences in 2006. Peter is the author of a joint paper with Max Corden, published in the Economic Journal in 1982, which is widely credited with developing the theory of the Dutch Disease. - the problems of adjustment which can paradoxically follow a sudden increase in wealth as a result of foreign aid or the development of natural resources.

What is STRUCTURAL CHANGE? What does STRUCTURAL CHANGE mean? STRUCTURAL CHANGE meaning - STRUCTURAL CHANGE definition - STRUCTURAL CHANGE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. In economics, structural change is a shift or change in the basic ways a market or economy functions or operates. Such change can be caused by such factors as economic development, global shifts in capital and labor, changes in resource availability due to war or natural disaster or discovery or depletion of natural resources, or a change in political system. For example, a subsistence economy may be transformed into a manufacturing economy, or a regulated mixed economy may be liberalized. A current driver of structural change in the world economy is globalization. Structural change is possible because of the dynamic nature of the economic system. Patterns and changes in sectoral employment drive demand shifts through the income elasticity. Shifting demand for both locally sourced goods and for imported products is a fundamental part of development. The structural changes that move countries through the development process are often viewed in terms of shifts from primary, to secondary and finally, to tertiary production. Technical progress is seen as crucial in the process of structural change as it involves the obsolescence of skills, vocations, and permanent changes in spending and production resulting in structural unemployment.

There are opposing views on whether economic growth can lead to increased levels of ecological and social sustainability. Its promoters argue that economic growth is needed to apply new technologies and sophisticated products which, in turn, lead to a more economic use of natural resources, more environmental protection and social progress. Yet, opponents claim that economic growth is based on global production and consumption patterns that are destroying our natural livelihoods and increasing social inequalities. 1) Do we need economic growth to solve existing social and ecological problems? Or, does economic growth create more costs than what it actually yields? 2) Can we expect a new economic boom triggered by innovations in environmentally-friendly technologies? 3) Which strategies of sustainability are the high-growth countries of Brazil, Russia, India or China following? How do these countries handle the conflict between economic growth and sustainability?

ENVIRONMENT SPEECH Good morning to the Excellencies, my respected teachers and my dear friends. The topic of my speech is Environment. Environment is the surrounding in which we live. It is the source of life. Our whole life is dependent to the environment. It directs our life and determines our proper growth and development. Good or bad quality of social life depends on the quality of our natural environment. The need of human beings for food, water, shelter and other things depends on the environment around us. There is a balanced natural cycle exists between environment and lives of human beings, plants and animals. Human society is playing vital role in degenerating the natural environment which in turn negatively affects the lives on this planet. All the human actions in this modern world directly impact the whole ecosystem. Environment All the actions have brought a big change in this planet which resulted in many environmental problems. Increasing demand of technologies and industries in the modern time impacts the nature. The increasing invention of new technologies has changed the interaction of people with environment which permits more population to grow. The modern technologies have immense power which has altered the whole environment in an unimagined way. The indiscriminate use of environment is the root of ecological crisis. Such continuous increase in the technologies and human behaviour are correspondingly very serious. Such amazing technologies have become the reason of economic growth in 20th century however it had dramatically affected the natural resources. Some of the environmental problems are rapid growth in world population, deteriorating natural resources, diminishing forests and wetlands, erosion of soil and coral reefs, depleting underground water, regular shortage of fresh drinking water, vanishing plants, salinization in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Middle East. Some other issues are loss of biodiversity, rapid extinction of some important animal species, collapse of fisheries, rising air and water pollution, rise in atmospheric temperature, thinning of ozone layer, spoiling rivers, seas and underground resources. Even though science and technology have radically altered the terms of adaptation to the nature, we still need to adapt to the environment. Human society is embedded in an environment. We must not forget that the human being is first and foremost an animal, sharing living space with other animal species in an environment on which they are mutually dependent. It is our responsibility to save our environment and earth and make the possibility of healthy and happy life here. Thank You

Sam Wills, 2010 John Monash Scholar ESRC Future Research Leaders Fellow in Economics, University of Oxford https://samuelwills.wordpress.com/ What is the environment worth? Most attempts to answer this use parts of the environment that are bought and sold: like oil or farmland. But what about a beautiful mountain view, a tree-lined forest path… or a clean six-foot wave peeling down a point break? We estimate how much the environment can contribute to the economy using the quality of surfing waves as a natural experiment. Combining a unique online database of over 5000 waves around the world, and satellite images of light emitted at night time, we find that good waves boost local economic growth by over 1% per year. Annually this amounts to $22 million per wave, or $51 billion globally. The benefits are most pronounced in emerging economies. Surfing also plays an important role in reducing extreme poverty, encouraging the rural poor to move to nearby towns. It is therefore important not to neglect the important role the environment can play in economic development. About Sam Wills: Sam is an ESRC Future Research Leaders Fellow in Economics at the University of Oxford, specialising in how countries should manage their natural resource wealth. He has advised the governments of Norway, Ghana, Uganda, Iraq and Libya on natural resource policy with the International Growth Centre and the World Bank, and has also worked with the Bank of England, the Australian Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, McKinsey and Co., Westpac Bank and Taylor Fry Consulting Actuaries. Sam completed a D.Phil in Economics at Oxford in 2014, receiving the David Walton award for the top candidate in macroeconomics or finance. He also holds an M.Phil in Economics from Oxford and a B.Com in Actuarial Studies and Finance (Hons I and University Medal) from UNSW.

James Wolfensohn discusses the changing global economy in a post-financial crisis world, highlighting the rise of Asia and other developing countries. Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, begins with an overview of the changing balance of global economic power. The so-called "rich" nations, beginning with the G7, could not stabilize the shaky post-financial crisis economy without the developing countries, especially China, India, and Brazil, which are experiencing rapid economic growth. Wolfensohn discusses the expansion of the G7 to the G20 and describes China and India's projected economic dominance.Wolfensohn discusses the role of the U.S. in a newly competitive global landscape, noting that increasing national debt will become a significant problem if the U.S. does not become more fiscally responsible. Further, to remain competitive, the U.S. must fundamentally reform its education system. Wolfensohn also describes the role of Africa, which is experiencing slower economic growth than Asia, and its importance to the global economy as a matter of social justice, peace, balance, and opportunity. Last, Wolfensohn answers questions about how individuals can effect change in the U.S.; the role of the World Bank; Brazil's economy and natural resources; corruption in Africa; economic growth and governance in China versus India; the future of the European Union; and American military expenditure and action.

The damaging effects of the financial crisis on companies are making some business leaders ask deeper questions about our economic system. Increasing inequality also presents risks to business, according to the International Monetary Fund and World Economic Forum. Meanwhile, as the costs of natural resources rise and our population reaches 7 billion, so more business leaders are wondering whether the world can support more and more economic growth. Management consultants and business schools have largely failed to provide business leaders with insight on these questions, and help them develop appropriate strategies. Throughout 2011 more business thinkers shared initial ideas on creating a new form of capitalism. But are they too cautious in their analysis, and too narrow in what ideas they draw upon? Yes, according Professor Jem Bendell from the Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainable Enterprise. In this interview Professor Bendell argues we need to uncover our hidden assumptions in order to develop new insights into the strategic implications of our current crises. He describes how the current debate about the merits of economic growth is illustrative of how the wrong assumptions lead to meaningless and unresolvable debates. Professor Bendell explains that there are now four main views about the role of economic growth in society -- pro-growth, no-growth, green-growth, and beyond-growth. These positions seem irreconcilable, and yet they are all based on a false assumption that the nature of money, and its mode of creation, is neutral in its effect on society. He explains how better understanding the monetary system could help resolve the impasse on growth, and lead to new approaches from business, even including new business opportunities.
