(Before)

Somebody asked us, if we remembered seeing the Statue of Liberty as we pulled into the harbour. To tell you the truth we didn’t care too much about it. The Statue of Liberty was important to white European immigrants, it was a symbol to them. We knew, it wasn’t meant for us. On that first visit we could not get over the size of New York. Dad had been there once, and had tried to describe it but it was beyond our imagination. In New York there were so many different kinds of people from all over the world. There were Irish people German people Jewish people Italian people and so on. They all ate different foods and, you could smell strange things cooking when you walked by people’s apartments. We loved New You. When we returned home we talked to Dad about us moving to New York to attend college. After we moved to New York City, we had to find an apartment which was very difficult, The apartment, that we shared with our brother Lucius, was too small for all three of us.

장하준의 경제학 강의를 읽고

38621348

사놓고 계속 머뭇머뭇 거리다가, 2주일이 채 안되는 시간동안 출/퇴근 길에 빠르게 읽어내렸다.
내용상으로 크게 막히는 부분은 없었고, 내용 상으로 상당히 신선한 부분이 많았다.

첫 번째로, 경제학을 바라보는 관점이었다. 언제인지 기억은 안나지만, 통일에 대해 고민하는 나에게 있어 처음에는 경영학만을 바라보다가, 이를 위해서는 경제학이 필요하다고 느꼈고, 이를 공부하였던 적이 있었는데, 그 결론은 어이가 없게도, 정치부터 바꿔야 한다는 것이었다. 그런 관점에서 경제학의 중요한 부분은 정치라는 것에 상당 부분 동의하는 바였다.

두 번째로, 경제학이 바라보는 범위에 대해서 체계를 다시금 세워주려고 노력했다는 것이었다. 어느 순간 시장에만 집중해서 숫자만 바라보는 경제학을 보면서 여러 번 다시 같은 내용을 훑어보기도 하였고 이는 마치 고등학교 시절 수학정석을 펼치면 집합만이 여러번 손댔던 것과도 같은 것이라…

글쎄 장하준 교수님과 장하성 교수님, 두 분다 지인의 친척으로서 그 환경이 부럽기도 하지만, 다른 어떤 것보다 이런 학문을 연구하시고 이렇게 자기만의 길을 가고 있다는 것은 참 멋지다.. 🙂

다음 책은 무엇을 읽을지 다시금 고민을 해봐야겠다.

Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 20.58.38

The table illustrates the number of tourists and their total spending in five countries-France, USA, Spain, China, Italy. The period covered is from 2012 to 2013.

Beginning with the number of tourists, in most of nations, except China, the figure has increased more slightly in 2013, compared with the previous year. Particularly, Spain showed the highest increasing percentage more than other countries with around 5.5%. On the contrary, the figure of China decreased from 57.7 millions in 2012 to 55.7 million in 2013. Irrespective of the percentage of growth, France ranked the number one country the most number of tourists visited in 2012, followed by 2013. the country the least number of visitors have been to is Italy. 46.4 millions of tourists traveled to Italy and the figure is almost an half of that of France in the same year. And the trend was true as well in 2013.

In terms of their total spendings, their each amount have thoroughly different pattern. USA ranked the second country in the number of tourists showed the overwhelming spending amount more than that of Spain and France combined. Even though, France and China have show the much more gap between the figure of visiting people, their spending amount is almost same in the consecutive year.

All in all, it is clear that spending amount and then number of visitors has been increasing gradually, except the case of China on the number of tourists.
