How do the Brandt line, Walt Rostow's Modernization model, neocolonialism, and Wallerstein's world systems theory inform and intersect with each other when explaining economic development?

These models provide various explanations for the disparities in economic development. Wallerstein’s world systems theory divides the world into core, semi-periphery, and periphery nations. According to this theory, core nations are highly developed nations, semi-periphery are developing nations, and periphery are underdeveloped nations. This theory intersects with the Brandt Line model of economic geography in that most underdeveloped nations fall within the Brandt Line, which divides the world between the North and South, the North being developed nations. Furthermore, according to Wallerstein, core and periphery nations work together for their developmental needs. Yet, from a neocolonialist perspective, these core nations also once were the colonizers of the peripheral nations. As a result, they continue to dictate the underdeveloped nations' economies and trade, and subsequently, their independence. Economic growth is required for periphery countries to move from subsistence/agricultural economies to industrialization, as the Rostow Modernization model demands.

One student uses a flat toothpick as a mining equipment in a cookie mining lab. In your own words, explain how changing mining techniques or tools in a cookie mining lab could have both pros and cons and apply it to the real world.

It could have pros because it may be a better technique, and helps you get more of what you want, but it could also have cons, because it could give back less than what you got with the other technique. This is like if you have a job filing paperwork, and you have a good technique or tool to help you along quickly, but you decide to try something new, and end up being able to get things done faster. However, you might decide to change your techniques again, and you may find that it gets things done much slower. Hope this helps.

Would mountainous landscapes attract you to live in an area?I answered it attracts people in my geography test but apparently I'm wrong. I don't understand why.

From a geological perspective, living near a mountain landscape can offer a number of advantages that would be attractive.

Climate: Mountains can have a significant impact on the climate. Due to their effect on the weather, you can have a very wet climate on the side that blocks rain or a desert and dry conditions on the opposite.

Natural Resources: The higher mountain is, the colder it gets. Many experience abundant amounts of snow and ice formation. As the seasons change, the atmosphere around a mountain warms and cools. When it is cool, snow and ice forms at lower levels of the mountain. As the mountain warms, the snow found at lower levels of the mountain begins to melt and is captured in rivers and streams that originate from it. These streams and rivers can provide water to areas that are dry and sustain forests. The mountain acts like a regulator for supplying resources.

Mountains can also have a significant effect on weather phenomenon like Hurricanes and Thunderstorms.
