WU Post Independence Economic Transfiguration in South Africa Proposal Discussion

Waldorf University

Question Description

Help me study for my Economics class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

you are supposed to write the proposal/outline which will make the framework for the final term paper!

the attached instructions file is for the final term paper, but you don't have to write that now!

just choose a topic based on the instructions and write the proposal/outline in 700 words (not counting the references list)

also make a list of 7 references that will be used for the final paper, based on the topic you choose!


write a proposal:

A proposal, which may be in the form of one or more questions, is a typed outline that includes the sources that you propose to consult, and is not a summary—you haven’t yet written the paper!

What topic should you choose?

I require you to describe and evaluate the progress or failure to develop economically of a country or region over a period of time. The country or region may be any one in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. (You may not choose Britain, Ireland, or a country in continental Europe, or the U.S. or Canada, or Australia or New Zealand, but you may write about Russia or Japan.) Your writing should focus on how and why economic development proceeded—rapidly, slowly, or not at all, as the case may be. You should select a period of time, shorter or longer as you see fit. (A paper on the economic development of a colony before it became a sovereign nation is an appropriate topic, e.g., the Gold Coast under British rule before independence as Ghana in 1957.) If you are in any doubt about what would make a suitable country and/or time period for your term paper, contact me.

ECON 112: ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INSTRUCTIONS AND ADVICE REGARDING THE TERM PAPER (Revised—Sunday, March 15, 2020) This assignment requires you to write a 6-10 page paper on the topic described below. The proposal earns you up to five points, and a hard or soft copy is due by 10 PM on Monday, March 23 (when DMH closes that evening). A proposal, which may be in the form of one or more questions, is a typed outline that includes the sources that you propose to consult, and is not a summary—you haven’t yet written the paper! The paper itself earns you up to twenty points, and is due by 10 PM on Monday, April 20. Together the proposal and the term paper itself are worth up to 25% of your final grade. What topic should you choose? I require you to describe and evaluate the progress or failure to develop economically of a country or region over a period of time. The country or region may be any one in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. (You may not choose Britain, Ireland, or a country in continental Europe, or the U.S. or Canada, or Australia or New Zealand, but you may write about Russia or Japan.) Your writing should focus on how and why economic development proceeded—rapidly, slowly, or not at all, as the case may be. You should select a period of time, shorter or longer as you see fit. (A paper on the economic development of a colony before it became a sovereign nation is an appropriate topic, e.g., the Gold Coast under British rule before independence as Ghana in 1957.) If you are in any doubt about what would make a suitable country and/or time period for your term paper, contact me. How to research the topic To get you started, look through the case studies in our textbook, Todaro & Smith 2015, and then consult the following resource: The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Living Edition (2019- ) online at https://link.springer.com/referencework/10.1057%2F978-1-349-95121-5 (Your library registration gives you access to this and other online materials.) Visit the sixth floor of the King library, especially in the HC class, where you will find many books on this and related topics. If the university library doesn’t have a particular book, you may find that either another CSU library (CSU+) or your local public library has a copy of the book. And if none of those do, you can order the book through Interlibrary Loan or Link+. http://library.sjsu.edu/services/csu-interlibrary-loan-and-other-resources And bear in mind that it’s okay to use discriminating and thoughtful use of websites containing worthwhile material (but be sure to cite correctly what you find—full URL and date visited). Instructions for writing the paper The paper should be typed in Times New Roman 12-point font (and use italic, bold or underline sparingly), double-spaced (like this sentence), and with one-inch margins, top and bottom, left and right. The paper (not including the cover sheet and the bibliography and/or references) should be 1500-2500 words in length. You should deliver a hard copy to my office (DMH 144—I’ll check the envelope attached to my office door several times a day). Papers that are too short lose points. And papers that exceed 2500 words had better be worth reading! SJSU—SPRING 2020—ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT—MARK BRADY—TERM PAPER PAGE 2 Instructions for writing the paper (cont’d) You should write your full name, “Econ 112,” “Spring 2020,” and the word count (not including the bibliography and/or references) on the cover sheet. Large, clearly labeled diagrams may be used where appropriate (but don’t include them in the word count). A bibliography and/or references typed in a consistent format should be included at the end of the paper. A 1500-word paper without a cover sheet, diagrams, and bibliography would fill 5-6 pages depending on the spacing between paragraphs. A hard copy of the paper itself is due by 10 PM on Monday, April 20 (when DMH closes that evening). You will lose points if you are late in submitting your paper. The paper itself counts for up to twenty points toward your final grade for the course. (And the proposal counts for up to five points.) PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS. Deadlines You are welcome to discuss your proposal with me, and run a draft proposal by me at jmarkbrady@gmail.com. You are also welcome to run a draft of your paper by me. Any draft that you wish to submit for my comments is due by 11:59 PM on Sunday, April 5, (that’s three weeks’ time) to be returned by Friday, April 10. This semester I will accept a draft that is an MS Word document (but not a pdf) and emailed (with your name and Econ 112 and “Draft Term Paper” as the name of the file) to bradytermpapers@gmail.com. (Any other inquiries should be sent to jmarkbrady@gmail.com.) And be advised that I won’t accept drafts that are faxed. Help is available! If you experience any difficulty in completing this assignment, please do not hesitate to ask me for help. I am available most every day Monday through Friday 9 AM – 5 PM (and sometimes after 5 PM) by appointment (please suggest a couple of times). But I advise against dropping by without an appointment. I much prefer meeting in person to email correspondence unless you just want a simple question answered. The SJSU Writing Center is also here to help you: http://www.sjsu.edu/writingcenter/ COVID-19 Update (3/12/2020): As SJSU has moved in-person classes to an online environment due to COVID-19 concerns, Writing Center in-person operations (events, workshops, and tutoring) will be closed for the remainder of March (through spring break). Online tutoring will continue and has been expanded significantly--we now have additional appointments available! Click on the "Schedule a Tutoring Session" button below to book your slot. Honor code The university regards cheating and plagiarizing as serious offenses against the honor code and I shall not hesitate to enforce the rules. Students are recommended to consult the appropriate section of the honor code.

ECONOMIC TRANSFIGURATION

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background of the study
Economic transfiguration entails the over the whole shifting of labor as a factor of production
from low productive activities to high. The basis of economic reformation and change
productivity is economic growth and poverty reduction (Du Toit & Neves, 2007). Therefore, for
economic transformation to be fully effective, factors of production such as land, capital, and
entrepreneurship need to be utilized, thus gaining fully their rewards, which promotes economic
growth. For any economy to experience full economic transfiguration, irrespective of its placing
in the global market spectrum, it needs to incorporate sustainable production and consumption in
its corporate strategy (Du Toit & Neves, 2007).
Power transition in South Africa took place in 1994, despite them attaining independence in
1961. During the power transition period, South Africa was considered Africa's economic hub,
with an annual GDP of 3.2% (Jayne, Chamberlin & Benfica, 2018). However, during that period,
the social and economic transformation struggle remained an ongoing concern posing a
contradictory legacy. After the transition of power, the country was characterized by two parallel
economies; the first and second. The first modern economy is attributed to bulk wealth
production and global economic integration, while the second economy is attributed to
underdevelopment with little GDP to show (Tleane, 2018).
