In this paper, I will select a region, chose a trading bloc within that region, and write an article in favor of regional integration and another against it. I will also describe the advantages and disadvantages of regional integration within both articles and relate the stage of economic development of the economically integrated region to potential business opportunities. Before stating my opinions of why I would be for regional integration and then, why I would be against it, I will define the term for clarification and understanding.According to Hill, regional economic integration are agreements among countries in a geographic region to reduce, and ultimately remove tariff and non

According to the C.W. Hill, ''linking neighbor countries and making them increasingly dependent creates incentives for political cooperation." (Hill, 2005, 271)On the opposite side there are many argue against regional economic integration. Some argue that integrating can make a country lose its identity and autonomy. Another worry with integration is that it does not actually increase production and that it only creates what is know as trade diversion. Trade diversion occurs when a country simply starts

In the United States, euthanasia is illegal in all states except in the states of Oregon, Washington, and Montana. In 1998 the issue of euthanasia was triggered in America when Dr Jack Kevorkian, a pathologist from Michigan showed a videotape of himself administering a deadly injection to a patient with a debilitating disease. The patient voluntarily wanted to end his life because he was suffering from Lou Gehrigs’s disease (Siu, 2008). Since then, the controversy over active euthanasia has remained an ethical dilemma for

Arguments for and Against Abortion
An abortion is also known as a termination, meaning to terminate, to
stop. An abortion is when you stop a pregnancy, by removing the
foetus from the womb.
Many people frown upon abortions, as they see them as the killing of a
life. Other people believe that it is a ‘potential’ life, and that a
foetus is not considered to be a child.
Some people feel that in a situation where the prospective parents are
told their unborn child may be disabled, an abortion is acceptable.
The situation mostly frowned upon is abortion for social reasons e.g.
the mother cannot afford to bring up the child, is too young to

One argument against economic integration is that the system relies too heavily on all the players in a supply chain, and that if there is a small disruption in one economy, it may escalate into uncontrollable war. However it is to be said that if one of those links fails to produce or has conflict with a country, competition will compensate for that missing means of production. Additionally, negotiation between countries would occur much more frequently if nations could see the total opportunity cost of going to war. Economic integration allows for country to do just that; openly negotiate which allows

The main reason that I support genetic engineering is that this

One of the strongest arguments against this selective process according to a staff writer for The Christian Science Monitor is that it "violates the 14th Amendment and the Civil Rights Act."

But for this I would like to say that it is the environment that causes "Hitler" to become merciless and devastation on our globe.After all the arguments, I would like to conclude with my own point of view about the idea. I have no objection about it if the process is successful at each and every nuclear transfer. Since there is a high risk of losing embryos, and scientists are unable to make it error free. Also due to the lack of genetic diversity and different characters, I am against it to happen on a large scale and will object the idea.

OUTLINE THE CASE FOR AND AGAINST REFERENDAThe concept of referenda has existed for hundreds of years, coming into official use towards the end of the 19th century. There is evidence that the 'poll of the people' was used by William the Conqueror and by the Vatican in medieval times to affirm leaderships. Tacitus in 'Germania' suggests that Principes should decide minor questions, but great matters should be decided by the people. This idea remains today, where in some countries it generally assumed that a referendum be held when there might be a change to the constitutional law. Before arguing for or against referenda, one must consider on what grounds the referendum is standing. Some

This violence can have devastating consequences for all involved. There are many reasons for violence against women and this essay will look at some of these reasons.Traditionally women have been seen as the weaker sex and men can often exploit this idea and use it as an excuse to be violent towards women.

In the Bible itself it prescribes death for crimes such as murder, kidnapping, witchcraft and many more. By 1500, in England, only foremost felonies conceded the death penalty - murder, larceny, burglary, rape, arson and treason. However, from 1723 under the "Waltham Black Acts", Parliament enacted several new capital offences which led to an increase in the number of individuals being put to death each year.

Therefore, there is no reason to think that just because the world is ordered, it is necessarily a result of intelligent design.

However, here the cause (God) and effect (the universe) are both wholly unique and insensible, so there is no way that we could have any such experience of their existences or anything that resembles them.Still Philo takes up another line of attack.

everything to do with supposed racial injustices. When Ms. Chavez argues that affirmative action is often misdirected or that it doesn't target the right groups, she misses the point. The point being that all blacks are eligible for the policy so long as there is racial inequality. Her final argument is convincing though, as it would lead to increased discrimination against blacks due to negative racial stereotypes and thus erode real success.In conclusion, I must side against affirmative action. I feel the current judicial system has sufficiently solved for the problem of racial inequality by providing equal opportunities for blacks. I also agree with Ms. Chavez that there are factors other than racial discrimination leading to unequal outcomes.Feingold, Stanly; McKenna, George. Taking Sides, 13th ed. Issue #10.
