Your job is to summarize a special report from The Economist published in last 3 years (2020, 2019, or 2018). The
special report you choose must be about globalization, trade, or any international issue. If you’re not sure, choose a
report and email me. To get started, do the following:
- Visit http://www.economist.com/printedition/specialreports and scroll through the special reports, choose one
report about globalization, trade, or any international issue.
- Read every article in the report. If you don’t have a subscription to The Economist, then you’ll only be able
to access a few articles a week. This is why it is crucial to start printing and reading the articles in the report
as early as possible.
- Write the paper as follows: Your paper should have three sections: Introduction, Summary and Analysis and
should be 1500 words (that’s about 5 pages).
In the Introduction (150 words) you should outline the importance of the topic and what issues the report talks
Introduce the report (title, date of publication, and publication title) and provide a brief motivation of why
this is an important or timely report. Why is this interesting not only to economists, but to individuals, or
institutions? Discuss the big picture and the report’s general direction or opinion on the matter.
Twentieth century psychoanalyst Erich Fromm defined humans as, “the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve” (Fromm, 1947). This “problem” has been constantly defined or reinterpreted from biological, philosophical, evolutional, and sociological perspectives. However, the key factor linking these varying viewpoints together is the presence of a linguistic system that allows us to even form these differing perspectives. This essay will suggest that the complexity that exists within our language- our syntax, grammar, design, symbolism, and semantics- divides and elevates the human species from non-human animals (NHA). Human language is perhaps one of the most distinctive behavioural adaptations on the planet as it has differentiated itself from the idea of simple communication between organisms to a prerequisite for the development of human culture. There is a biological basis to the complexity of human language- the Forkhead box protein P2 gene (FOXP2) in humans contributes to the ability of fine control of the larynx and mouth needed for articulate speech production (Enard et. al, 2002). FOXP2 has been shown to regulate language-like behaviours in birds, mice, and chimpanzees. These vocalizations aid in providing a communicative structure to social groups, such as identifying members, facilitating group movement, or signaling danger, but lack in grammatical or syntactic complexity. When human and chimpanzee lineages diverged 4.6-6.2 million years ago, the substitution of two amino acid changes in humans, from those in NHA, appear to contribute to the human ability of normal spoken language (Enard et. al, 2002).>GET ANSWER
