In 1610 When England enacted what was known as the Articles of Plantation. They transferred ownership of land from the indigenous people toimmigrants loyal to the Crown. (A similar situation as is taking place in Israel Loyalists from Scotland and England were "planted" on the best land, while the o…riginal Irish owners were forced to cultivate the rocky hinterlands, or into servitude. the Scots and English Planters were Protestants. The displaced Irish were Catholic. The Irish rose in rebellion in 1641, killing thousands of protestant loyalists leading to reprisals in 1649 by the English under Oliver Cromwell, when thousands of Irish were slaughtered. In 1689, there was a further rebellion with support from the deposed English King James II, a Catholic, with aid from the French. In 1690, the new English monarch, William of Orange, defeated the Irish rebels at the Battle of the Boyne. Loyalists still celebrate this victory, marching annually on July 12th. these marches are designed to stir relics sentiment , especially when routed through catholic communities. (MORE)
The main issue with Nigeria is the resource curse. The resource curse is where a nation or a state with a very valuable and plentiful supply of resources. It is also referred to as the paradox of the plenty because countries that seem to have an enormous amount of wealth tend to have less economic g…rowth and a lower standard of living than those regions that have a less wealth.. One explanation for this is that the government has no incentive to be accountable to its citizens. This is because the government does not need to tax its citizens in order to garner funds and therefore has no stake in creating infrastructure in order to improve the standard of living for its people.. Another factor contributing to the underdevelopment of Nigeria is the dominance of conflict and civil war in Nigeria. Wars cost a lot of money and the average African civil war lasts 10 years and cost 64 billion dollars. There is also a 50% chance that the region will go back into civil war.. In Nigeria there is a complex situation involving a myriad of parties including but not limited to: transnational oil companies, oil engineering companies, funders, banks, construction companies, military and private/public security functions. Nigeria gains 70-80 billion dollars a year and the government has shown that they are willing to take direct and indirect action to repress any movements that threatens the current Nigerian social structure.

it is relevant to the industry because it can be use to motivate the workers.
Industrial conflict is caused by a clash between employers and employees. Generally, the causes of industrial conflict fall into categories such as working conditions, wage demands, work practices, political disputes and social concerns.

The conflict in Ireland is over nationalism and unionism. As nationalists, whom persist of mostly the catholic community wanted a free Ireland, free from British rule and unionists wanted to obtain the united north of Ireland with the British crown. The troubles in Northern Ireland were a time of se…rious unrest with murders on both sides of the community, it was a terrible time indeed. Nowadays both sides of the community do try to get along but communities remain divided and the unfortune presence of loyalist paramilitary criminals leave both the protestant and catholic communities threatened. The real IRA also cause trouble nowadays as there are people who believe that the violent struggle for freedom should remain, these people split away from the IRA when guns were given up. Due to devolution after the good Friday agreement unionists and nationalist parties now work together in a shared government. (MORE)

That is a very complex question. It would take an explanation of 800 years of Irish history to answer it. It would also depend on your interpretation of this history. Different people have different perspectives of it. So there is no simple answer.
There are 1000+/- languages in Nigeria. So, English, or a form of it, is used as the official language and general lingua franca.
If you are referring to the recent meltdown in started only with financial services firms including banks. Economic meltdown is an unexpected but accelerated financial system failures resulting in drastic reduction in economic activity.
I will start by referring you back to any of the various violent occurances in the country in recent times.the age bracket of the people who carried the act were basically the youth who are so strong and energitic and looking for where to discharge the strenght.

ROLE OF INDUSTRIALIZATION IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY Industrialization plays a vital role in the economic development of an underdeveloped country. The historical facts reveal that all the developed countries of the world broke the vicious circle of underdevelopment by industrialization…. Pakistan being a developing country also wants to achieve higher standard of living for its masses. It has therefore, embarked upon various programmers of industrialization. The policies of privatization, deregulation and liberalization of the economy are being pursued. The role of industrialization in economic development is summed up as under. 1. Increase in national income. Industrialization makes possible the optimum utilization of the scarce resources of the country. It helps in increasing the quantity and quality of various kinds of manufactured goods and thereby make a larger contribution to gross national product. (GNP). 2. Higher standard of living. Industrialization helps in increasing the value of output per worker. The income of the labour due to higher productivity increases. The rise in income raises the living standard of the people. 3. Economic stability. Industrialization is the best way of providing economic stability to the country. A nation which depends upon the production and export of raw material alone cannot achieve a rapid rate of economic growth. The uncertainties of Nature, the restricted and fluctuating demand of the agricultural raw material hampers economic progress and leads to an unstable economy. 4. Improvement in balance of payments. Industrialization brings structural changes in the pattern of foreign trade of the country. It helps in increasing the export of manufactured goods and thus earn foreign exchange. On the other hand the processing of raw material at home curtails the import of goods and thereby helps in conserving foreign exchange. The export orientation and import substitution effects of industrialization help in the improvement of balance of payments. In Pakistan, the exports of semi manufactured and manufactured goods showed favorable trend. 5. Stimulates progress in other sectors. Industrialization stimulates progress in other sectors of the economy. A developments of one industry leads to the development and expansion of other industries. For instance the construction of a transistor radio plant, develops the small battery industry (backward linkage). The construction of milk processing plants adds to its line of production ice cream. cone cream plants etc.. ( forward linkage ). 6. Increased employment opportunities. Industrialization provides increased employment opportunities in small and large scale industries. In an agrarian economy, industry absorbs underemployed and unemployed workers of agricultural sector and thereby increases the income of the community. 7. Promotes specialization. Industrialization promotes specialization of labour. The division of work increases the marginal value product of labour. The income of worker in the industrial sector is therefore higher than that of a worker in agricultural sector. 8. Rise in agricultural production. Industrialization provides machinery like tractors thrashers harvesters, bulldozers, transport, aerial spray etc, to be used in the farm sector. The increased use of modern inputs has increased the yield of crops per hectare. The increase in the income of the farmers has given boost to economic development in the country. 9. Easy to control industrial activity. The industrial activity compared to agricultural is easy to control. The industrial production can be expanded or cut down according to the price cost and demand of the product. 10. Large scope for technological progress. Industrialization provides larger scope for on the job training and technological progress. The use of advanced technology increases the scale of production, reduces cost of production, improves quality of the product and helps in widening of the market. 11. Reduction in the rate of population growth. Industrialization leads to migration of surplus labour from farm sector to the industries mostly situated in urban centers. In cities improved facilities of sanitation and health care are available. People through the adoption of family planning measures, reduce the rate of population growth. 12. Increased saving and investment. Industrialization increases the income of the workers. It enhances their capacity to save. The voluntary savings, stimulate industrial growth and by cumulative effect lead to further expansion of industry. 13. Provision for defense. If a country is industrialized, it can manufacture arms and ammunition necessary for the defense of the country. A nation which depends on other countries for the supply of ammunition will eventually suffer and may face defeat. The two wars with India should be an eye opener for Pakistan. 14. Lesser pressure on land. The establishment and expansion of industries lessens the excessive pressure of labour force from the agriculture sector. 15. Development of markets. With the development of industries the market for raw materials and finished goods widens in the country. 16. Increase in the Government revenue. Industrialization increase the supply of goods both for internal and external markets. The export of goods provides foreign exchange. The customs excise duties and other taxes levied on the production of goods increase the revenue of the State. The income tax received from the industrialists adds to the revenue stream of the Government which eventually is spent for the welfare of the people as a whole. More: (MORE)

Six Sigma is relevant to all industries as it seeks to improve quality, reduce waste and reduce errors. The whole philosophy is based upon trying to understand how you existing processes work and then you are in a far better position to look at how and where you can make improvements. Improving qual…ity can help to stop delays or re-work (ensuring the quality of delivered materials such as cement is up to the right standard), checks that may need to be put in place to ensuring the footings are in the right place, understanding your supply chain and when the materials will get delivered to your site to stop unnecessary delays etc. Reduced delays helps to improve performance, ultimately increasing profits and staff morale, and leading to improved quality products being produced. They key will be to understand where and when you should and shouldn't apply it. You should consider applying it on a major issue that is causing you and the rest of the staff some big headaches. Once you have proven it works and then convinced the staff of the value, you will be surprised on where they will look at doing it next. (MORE)
Basically, the ruling protestant majority oppressed the catholic minority denying them jobs, housing and other important basic civil rights. In the 60's (possibly 50's I can't remember the exact date) the IRA was reformed and began conducting minor attacks on key installations like power stations, m…arking the beginning of their campaign of terror. In 1969 matters came to a head with the battle of the Bogside, where essentially, the RUC fought the catholics for 4 days and something like 900 were injured (police not civilians!). At this point, the army were called in. From then on it was a gradual escalation of violence, with key points being the introduction of internment (1971), Bloody Sunday (1972, which arguably sparked the massive rise in violence that year) and the IRA ceasefire in 1972 (or '73, again check dates). The splinter groups of the IRA formed and got set in for the "Long War" which is still being fought today. Essentially a campaign of unrest designed to make it economically unprofitable for the British to remain. I am not a history student but have a strong interest in the conflict (my father served as soldier for 5 years in Ireland). This is a very vague answer but the crux of the matter is the distreatment of catholics by the protestant majority. (MORE)

Discuss the importance of the entrepreneurial p…rocess to the growth of national income and economic well being of a modern European economy.? . List of cities in India? . What was the rationale behind attempts of MG Rover to forge alliances? Answer: Successive administrations in Nigeria, whether civilian or military, have felt the need to outdo the previous regime with extravagant plans to industrialize the nation. Once the hopes of the citizenry are raised to astronomical levels of absurdity, however, the plans repeatedly go unimplemented, and the administration quickly returns to business-as-usual of rent collecting. Many situations in Nigeria defy conventional models and ignore globally accepted norms to such a degree that they have become a travesty. In fact, numerous well-intentioned policies often end up implemented in such a way that they defy their original purpose. For example, law enforcement equipped with taxpayers' funds often malfunctions and becomes a threat to the very citizenry it was empowered to protect. The country's industrialization policies have similarly become distorted. In the history of industrialization throughout the world, there has been a discernable progression through levels of advancement. No matter the leap or spike in the industrial developmental indices, telltale markers have still been decipherable in their path toward industrialization, especially for emerging economies such as China or the Four Asian Tigers (Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.) These markers have served as invaluable keys to fine-tuning the industrial development strategies of these economies-a kind of Global Positioning System (GPS) for industrial development policy formulators. Like the rest of Africa, pre-independence Nigeria was structured to maximize the profits flowing north to Europe from exploitative commerce by the colonialists. Little thought was given to industrialization of the processes that yielded the primary products, as the companies were completely foreign-owned with little chance of technology transfer. Instead, huge department stores with finished products were introduced in a one-way street barter that saw Africans consuming finished products for which they had little or no understanding of their production processes. In an effort to reverse this consumerism trend in post-independent Nigeria, the nation christened its first discernable industrialization policy called the Import Substitution industrialization Strategy in 1961. Obviously, the euphoria of independence may have influenced the administration's capacity to notice the flaws in the strategy, which sought to substitute foreign imports with local production while continuing to rely on foreign raw materials and technology. Clearly, relying on foreign technology and raw materials to produce comparatively disadvantaged products was a policy that was doomed to fail, and, of course, it did. Going forward, policy formulators designed another industrialization strategy which must have been the result of substantial input from pan-nationalists since the resulting indigenization policy was more ideological than economic. The thrust of the Indigenization policy was the empowerment of indigenous entrepreneurs as decision-makers in key industries, thus reducing the overbearing influence of foreign interest in the industrial sector. To be sure, government always has a central role to play in the industrialization process, but it has become devastatingly obvious that the Nigerian government has been involved far beyond the call of duty. The incestuous tripartite relationship between government, business moguls, and ethnic considerations in formulating the indigenization policy has been very troubling. The result of this intercourse of economically adverse players has been bureaucratic corruption that has eventually matured into a systemic monster that refuses to be tamed. This explains why the Ajaokuta steel complex has been gestating for more than 30 years despite the billions of Naira invested, while similar projects have been completed in three to five years. The Nigerian administration has a tendency to delay serious proactive actions in policy formulation until its hand is forced. In fact, rather than a conscientious blueprint for progress, most industrial development plans are no more than countermeasures to correct perceived deficiencies in the economic sphere. Invariably, such knee-jerk policies are severely limited in scope and cannot sustain a framework for serious long-term industrial development. The Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) implemented in 1986 was meant to accelerate the country past a dependency on foreign imports and technology into localized self-sufficiency in materials, technology, and industrial development. While the jury is still out on the success or failure of this policy, many experts agree that its primary purpose of arresting the freefall of the Nigerian economy at the time was relatively effective. But there is little doubt that the limits of such ad hoc economic reactions may have ultimately pushed the government in the 1990s to d (MORE)

There could be a massive answer to that, as it affected so many things. Here are a few things. People died, so that affected families. Buildings were destroyed and jobs lost so it affected the economy. Trust between people got worse. People's fears increased. The reputation of the troubles in …Northern Ireland became greatly exaggerated and impacted it in many ways, like hitting tourism and international investment into Northern Ireland. It also impacted on individuals, with people being treated badly and with mistrust when they travelled, purely because they were from Northern Ireland. Society suffered. Political power went to London, so people had less say in their affairs. The list of effects could go on. (MORE)
