Robert Keohane and Global Cooperation on Climate Change – reaction paper

Theoretical Approaches to World Politics Climate change is an international challenge that is only manageable through the cooperation of the global community (Bulkeley & Peter, 2015:1).  The atmosphere is a resource that is common to all countries with no one having control over it. Emission of Green House Gases (GHGs) from industrial activities and other machines result in the production of carbon dioxide that is the main cause of global warming. When such occurs, all countries suffer the effects irrespective of whether one nation contributed less or more to the emission of the gases. For instance, due to global warming, there are frequent climate-related disasters that disrupt normal activities world over.

Politics and International Business TTIP/TPP & the Challenge for Democracy

Contemporary US Business Society The rise of democracy in the world after the collapse of Soviet Union that was championing for communism/socialism allowed interest groups and trade unions to demand better service in all social, political, and economic sectors.

Interest groups champion for protectionism policies with the objective of getting rent from the producers and broader public advances such as quality improvement (Rönnbäck, 2015:281). However, they…

The 2008 financial crisis in the US – Reaction Paper

Contemporary US Business and Society The 2008 financial crisis in the US led to the economic meltdown, an increase in unemployment rate, inflation, crash in the stock markets, and the collapse of financial institutions (Allen & Carletti, 2010: 1). The financial crisis had its roots in the low interest’s rates adopted by the US Central Bank and the Federal Reserves that encouraged many Americans to take mortgages in the hope to increase home ownership. Ofcourse, the development plan was good, but the financial institutions did not apply strict measures in their lending. Financial institutions issued out loans without strictly scrutinizing the revenues statuses of the borrowers to repay.
