Igor Malioutov In sum, labor, industry, and trade in the Roman world, at all aftermath of the conquest of greece; by analyzing the situation more thoroughly http://snafu.mit.edu/~bhslatin/history/trade.shtml
Extractions: Igor Malioutov Due to Rome's strategically important location and it's effective military organization, this, once diminutive city under the rule of Etruscan kings, was not only able to overthrow the last of Etruscan monarchs, Tarquinius Superbus, but moreover expanded into an empire that would succeed in dominating the rest of the Mediterranean. Roman Empire was probably the most advanced and powerful civilization at the time. It was amongst the biggest consumers and suppliers of an immense variety of materials across the Ancient world. It's trade routes went as far as North Africa and China; Roman economy played a crucial role in the development of ancient civilizations and was itself of a colossal structure and strength. Furthermore, the flourishing overseas trade promoted the exchange of ideas and as a result contributed to the dispersal of science, architecture, and crafts, consequently having an enormous effect on Roman life, and Roman Empire as a whole. Throughout the Roman Empire, agriculture remained the primary occupation of people and was the Empire's most important industry. Food was the single most significant item of production, consumption, and trade, both in volume and in value. In sum, labor, industry, and trade in the Roman world, at all periods, were dominated by agriculture. Peasants typically grew more food than they just needed to keep alive and produced a surplus, which was either exchanged at the local market for goods and services or was involuntarily surrendered as taxes paid to the state and rent paid to landowners. This transfer of agricultural surplus from producers to consumers through trade, taxation, and rent formed the foundation of the Roman economy and of the Roman state.

Extractions: With a population of 30 million and a GDP forecast to exceed $830 billion in 1997, Canada is one of the world's largest economies. A member of the G7 group of leading industrial countries, Canada enjoys an enviable standard of living, an excellent infrastructure, a highly educated and skilled labour force as well as a well-deserved reputation as a successful trading nation. Canada's leading industries include automobile manufacturing, pulp and paper, iron and steel work, machinery and equipment manufacturing, mining, extraction of fossil fuels, forestry and agriculture. Canada's leading exports are automobile vehicles and parts, machinery and equipment, high-technology products, oil, natural gas, metals, and forest and farm products. Energy ... The core of Canada's energy industry has traditionally been defined as the production of petroleum, natural gas, hydroelectricity, coal and uranium, all of which are part of Canada's resource endowment. There are also newer, and increasingly more important components of our energy industry - energy efficient alternative fuels and renewable energy, such as solar, wind, biomass and "small" hydro projects. Canada's energy industry also encompasses a wide variety of other activities, such as the transformation, transportation, distribution and refinement of energy products. These activities include petroleum refining, petroleum and natural gas pipelines, retail gas service stations, the transmission and distribution of electricity, and the thermal production of electricity from various types of fossil fuels ...
Extractions: OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2001 - Towards a knowledge-based economy Table of Contents Economic Structure and Productivity Contribution to the manufacturing trade balance, 1999 Change in contribution to the manufacturing trade balance between 1990 and 1999 D.7.2. The indicator shows that few OECD countries are specialised in high- and medium-high-technology industries. In 1999, the structural surplus in these industries represented more than 15% of total manufacturing trade for Japan, about 7.5% for Switzerland and around 5% for Germany, Mexico and the United States. A considerable number of OECD countries still have a strong comparative advantage in medium-low-technology and low-technology industries. The structural surplus of Turkey, New Zealand and Iceland in these industries accounted for more than 20% of total manufacturing trade and for over 10% in Norway, Poland, Greece and Australia. Contribution to the trade balance via If there were no comparative advantage or disadvantage for any industry j A positive value for an industry indicates a structural surplus, and a negative one a structural deficit. The indicator is additive, and individual industries can be grouped together by summing their respective values: by construction, the sum over all industries is zero. To allow comparisons across countries, the indicator is generally expressed as a percentage of total trade or of GDP.

Extractions: Greece The government has succeeded in reducing budget deficits and inflation, two key factors that allowed Greece to join the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) on January 1, 2001. On January 1, 2002, Greece, along with 11 out of its 14 EU partners, adopted the euro as its new common currency. The euro is expected to boost trade, help dismantle the last remaining market barriers within the EU, and stimulate production. The Greek economy is expected to grow 3.5% in 2002 and continue at robust rates above projected EU averages. Years of austerity and reform programs, however, have increased unemployment in some sectors. Foreign investment has also dropped and efforts to revive it have been only partially successful. Greece's large general government debt is projected to drop to 99% of GDP ($135 billion euros) in 2002. Many structural problems persist and privatization of the telecommunications, banking, aerospace, and energy sectors has not moved at the pace originally proposed. Services make up the largest and fastest-growing sector of the Greek economy. Tourism is a major source of foreign exchange earnings, although the industry has been slow to expand and suffers from poor infrastructure. About 12 million tourists visited Greece in 2001 with net revenues exceeding five billion euros. Industrial activity posted increases for the seventh year in a row, rising by 6.1% in 2000. Greece's food industry is expanding rapidly to support new markets in neighboring countries. High-technology equipment production, especially for telecommunications, is also a fast-growing sector. Agriculture employs about 15% of the work force and is still characterized by small farms and low capital investment, despite significant support from the EU in structural funds and subsidies. Traditionally, a seafaring nation, the Greek merchant fleet totaled 5,101 ships in 2000, with 1850 registered under the Greek flag.

Arms Around the World It was the early 1990s and then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton was on the campaign trail making promises: "I expect to review our arms sales policy and to take it up with the other major arms sellers of the world as a part of a long-term effort to reduce the proliferation of weapons." Ah, campaign promises. But the economy was in the doldrums, and the prospect of cutting arms sales sugar daddy to one of the nation's largest industries didn't thrill either labor or corporate America. What's more, the Gulf War had just ended the previous year, and it was the best extended commercial an arms salesman could ask for. (Indeed, some arms manufacturers incorporated bombing videos into their promotional materials.) Countries were clamoring for the high-tech weapons that made for such good TV. So, once elected, Bill Clinton did what he does best: He took advantage of the opportunity. Rather than insert human-rights concerns into the arms-sales equation, as did his Democratic predecessor President Carter, Clinton decided to aggressively continue the sales policies of President Bush, himself no slouch when it came to selling U.S. arms.

Extractions: Contacts Economic cooperation in the Balkans: a regional approach to European integration Methodology The research focused on ways to encourage the emergence of regional trading links between the Balkan countries and the difficulties that this process of Balkan regional development will entail. The aim was to analyse economic development in the Balkan countries and the relationships these countries have with European Union (EU) countries. The economic performance, structure and trade relations of the Balkan countries were analysed comparatively in order to detect basic sector trends and development in the region. The structural composition of industry was explored to establish the comparative advantages that different countries have in specific sectors which could form the basis for intra- industry trade. The geographical patterns of trade relations were analysed and related to the macroeconomic framework and industry structure within each country. On the basis of these analyses, alternative scenarios were evaluated for the development of the region in the pan-European economy. Research results Internationalisation and integration of the Balkan economies into the wider European market will be difficult, given the structural and institutional problems in each of the countries in the region. The process will generate severe pressures on their industrial bases, due to competition in the domestic and international markets, and a decline in industrial production as a percentage of GDP is therefore likely. This could lead to a contraction of technology-and labour-intensive industries, and increase trade deficits.
