How can contemporary China and Cuba be compared and contrasted?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The Great Leap Forward was a campaign of economic, social and political measures implemented in the People’s Republic of China between 1958 and 1961, during the presidency of Mao Zedong, with the aim of transforming the traditional Chinese agrarian economy through rapid industrialization and collectivization.

The main changes of the rural regime included the creation of the popular communes, the prohibition of private agriculture, the promotion of intensive-labor projects and the policy called “walking with two legs”, which combined small and medium-sized industrial initiatives, with the great undertakings, thus moving away from the Soviet model.

The predominant point of view in the Chinese Communist Party after the seizure of power by Deng Xiaoping, argues that the Great Leap Forward was a failure, caused largely by political errors led by Mao Zedong, which caused the death by starvation of large numbers of peasants, estimated between 15 million and 25 million

When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

“The Green Revolution” refers to Green Revolution refers to advances in agricultural practices that began in Mexico in the 1940s, and spread from there to other countries around the world in the 1950s and 1960s, The Green Revolution had a huge impact on developing agricultural economies, enabling significantly increased production per acre.

The beginnings of the movement, in Mexico, had support from not only the Mexican government, but also the U.S. government, the United Nations, and other organizations and foundations. A key figure in spearheading new approaches to agriculture in Mexico was Norman Borlaug, an American scientist with a PhD in plant pathology and genetics. He had begun agricultural research in Mexico in the 1940s, developing disease-resistant, high-yield wheat. In 1961, when India was facing the potential of massive famine, Borlaug was invited to India to help with renovation of agricultural methods there.

The high-yield IR8 variety of rice was developed in the 1960s in the Philippines. The Republic of the Philippines government, along with the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, established the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). IR8 rice was introduced in 1966, and had an enormous impact not only on agriculture in the Philippines, but then India and China and elsewhere also.

The correct answer is A) countries with universal education showed greater economic progress that countries without it.

The introduction of universal public education affected the economies of the United States and Europe in that nations with universal education showed greater economic progress that countries without it.

Universal education promotes the principle that everybody deserves an education and regardless of its race, sex or nationality, they should have equal access to an education opportunity. Universal education implies that all children have the obligation to go to school, to elementary school, and to secondary school. Their parents do not need to pay for the education of children at these levels.  

In countries such as Mexico, universal public education is granted until college or university level, where students pay nothing or a minimal amount of money every semester to cover a basic registration, such as is the case of The National Mexican University, UNAM.
