Project #25396 - mega citiies of asia

Many large Asian cities experiencing rapid economic and population growth, also find themselves with an entirely economic system under the Western model of growth. The capitalist or free market system is familiar to western cultures, but for many in Asia this way of life is familiar only through the media. For instance, progress is measured by increased wealth like “advances in economic output per capita” (Rowe, 2005, p.19) and is demonstratedby the accumulation of consumer goods for luxury and convenience. These Asian cities do not have the same cultural and socio-political background as Western cities such as New York or London. This has led to significant departures (ordifferences) from tradition/Oriental ways of life and culture. The significant differences will be shown in a variety of views, such as housing, poverty,pollution, population, quality of life, sustainability, transportation, health,environmental elasticity (Rowe, 2005, p.29), etc.

Choose one megacity from the 16 megacities in a list of the city report assignment (see below), and discuss how this system under the Western growth model measured by economic growth might impact the megacity you choose. You can focus on either one or more views.

*A list of 16 megacities: Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi, Lahore, Shanghai, Tehran, Istanbul, Osaka-Kobe, Dhaka, Manila, Beijing,Jakarta, and Bangkok.

Note: Students need to refer to chapters 2-3 in the "East AsiaModern" (Rowe, 2005) you can download via electronic course reserve (ECR)and chapters 1-6 in "Urban World/Global City" (Clark, 2003) for assistance in completing this assignment. However, students are encouraged to refer to other sources to support your argument.

The essay should be 2 - 3 pages in length with proper paragraphs, standard APAstyle formatting (1” margins, 12-point font, double spaced), and adequatecitations.
