Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
“If humans are not required to earn a living to be provided survival needs, many are going to want to be productive, but not at those tasks they did not choose to do but were forced to accept in order to earn money. Instead, humans will spontaneously take upon themselves those tasks that world society really needs to have done.”
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
We are faced with the problem of Global Terrorism which has been called the shadow of the process of Globalization. As the world is becoming none place, so it is that the effects of terrorism have global effects. Also it may be understood that the causes of this global terrorism are likewise global in nature, with disaffected individuals and groups caught up in ideologies of global scope and participating in causes that transcend international and even inter-continental barriers. We see this particularly in the Muslim world, where issues in Palestine, Bosnia, Afghanistan or Iraq can mobilize people on the other side of the world to want to make interventions. This process is followed by international powers such as the United States, which in order to protect \r\nits people and economic interests, is compelled to make its own global interventions to counteract perceived threats and in the process perhaps exacerbating the problems these measures were designed to remedy in the first place.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
So generally speaking international free trade is a good thing. There are however problems which accompany this increased global flow of goods, services, ideas and people. Even though international trade benefits the vast majority of people in this world overall, there will at the same time be winners and losers. In a globally competitive market place some firms, those that have the most attractive products and services, will see an increase in business. While those with products and services that are less appealing to the consumer will see decreases in demand for their output and will be forced to improve, diversify or else go bust. Also the same is true for entire nations. Countries which have established entire industries in for example coal mining, car manufacture or certain types of agricultural produce, may find these sectors of their economies under threat in a world market. Other nations may enjoy competitive advantages in these industries which allow them to produce more efficiently, more cheaply or to a higher standard, thus enabling them to win out in the market place. This competitive pressure is often cited as one of the benefits as firms and corporations focus their efforts on making their products and services better. The winner of this process is the consumer on a local, national and international level. However there are limits to how far individual firms and certain industries of specific nations are able to compete and so inevitably firms will go bankrupt and countries may have entire industrial sectors decimated. This results in painful transitions and people losing their jobs. Sometimes the effects can be severe causing mass unemployment and serious social upheaval.
My names are Okoye Chinedu Callistus, from Anambra State, in the south-east part of Nigeria, known as the business region, I was born on the 14th August to Mr. and (Mrs.) Okoye Anadumaka Godfrey, graduate of Computer Science, of the Federal University Of Technology owerri in Imo state. I aspire to be a great Leader in the nearest future, an opportunity I will take to touch lives in a wide Society, I love traveling a lot, having visited almost 8 states of the 36 states in Nigeria, like Benue, FCT, Enugu, Lagos, Imo,Rivers, Abia and Anambra state. Benue have a very remarkable impact on me because it was where I spent virtually my youthful age (i.e my primary and secondary school life) before I left Benue state in Imo state in 2010 for my higher education. I love leadership programs but I have not held any position in various student bodies while in school, I was fully engaged in sporting actives during my schooling days, and was among the team selected to represent my department (Computer Science) in which we came third position in the competition and I was the captain during this competition. I love GOD and try to be simple and Honest in all I do. I welcome any opportunity to serve my fellow man which has endeared me to my friends, I love soccer, athletics, volley ball, swimming etc. when am not doing any of the said hobbies, I am either reading a novel (Fictions, Adventures) or watching movies, any movie or novel that builds my creative imagination gets my nod.
I have five (5) outlined reasons why I want to participate in this study program;1) Location: If you are already working, or there are other reasons why you might not be able to be present on campus to obtain a degree from a traditional university, then online education provides you with the possibility to follow courses from the comfort of your home.\r\n\r\n2) Flexibility: Online degree programs give you the possibility to combine independent learning with your work or family. The online courses are specially designed for self-study and are often personalized to fit the needs of individual students.3) Variety: With the growing need for online education, there has been an increase in available online and distance study programs, giving you a great choice of different programs to choose from.4) Easy access: Online universities sometimes have less or even no formal requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to access courses.5) Support: Studying online does not mean you are left alone in your self-study environment. Most online programs are designed in such a way that you receive great support from university tutors and individual feedback to keep you focused on your studies.
