Sociology

Even though it can be difficult to assess the benefits of growth in some cases, I think there are also cases where some types of growth seem better than others. Growth that brings permanent jobs and higher wage jobs is generally better for cities economically and fiscally, even if there are still some downsides associated with this. This type of growth sounds more like the “knowledge-intensive” industries we discussed earlier in the course. The Glaeser reading this week suggests that a key to growth for many cities is having a highly educated and skilled workforce—what Glaeser refers to as “human capital”. This sounds similar to Florida’s concept of the “creative class”, as discussed in the lecture notes. Are there things cities can do to attract these people or increase their “human capital”? Can “innovation districts” do this, as discussed in the lecture notes? Or are there other ways that cities can attract “good” growth, especially if they are unable to attract a “creative class”?

Select three (3) of the insurgencies addressed by Castells book; compare and contrast them in terms of their major characteristics, and especially in terms of their use of the internet and social media.

The insurgencies are the events that occurred in the book and they are listed under the notes from class I will upload. The insurgencies you can choose from (in which you need to pick 3) are listed under Readings with the subheading INSURGENCIES…which is at the bottom of the page. Any 3 can be chosen. The information listed directly above INSURGENCIES is Castell’s opening and brief discussion of the book- this is not what the paper is about…the paper is about 3 insurgencies. Castle’s book is the only source needed for this assignment and the essay must reflect information ONLY from this book.

Sociology

During class on Friday, April 24th, we watched a documentary titled, “Fast Food, Fat Profits” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViZQkCYfufk).
The documentary featured several people implicated, in one way or another, with the fast food business or with the so-called obesity epidemic in America. The documentary channeled its materials through several frameworks (Goffman), which were employed in various ways from the beginning to end.

Your assignment for this week is to (1) identify at least two frameworks through which the documentary filtered its materials, objectively laying out how the documentary’s message was crafted into a cohesive and unitary whole. Please do not editorialize or make evaluative statements. I simply want you to identify what the frameworks are. Then, once you have objectively described two frameworks, I want you to (2) utilize “radical doubt,” which means you do not accept what is communicated at face value, that you assume the documentarian and the interviewees in the documentary have concealed information or they are providing a faulty representation of social reality. In other words, I want you to assume there is strong incentive to lie, mislead and evade.
It should be mentioned that practicing radical doubt is absolutely necessary for the growth of knowledge, in the generic sense, and for your own sociological growth, in the more specific sense. There are good reasons to practice radical doubt. For this assignment, your task is to show me what those reasons are. What is the value added of maintaining a cynical, doubting stance toward an author, authority, professor, expert, etc? Are there limits to the practice of radical doubt, of framing social reality through radical doubt?

Write 800-1000 words in a Microsoft Word document. And, as usual, submit to EEE. Due May 1st, 9am. Please follow the formatting requirements as stated in the syllabus. Failure to follow those requirements can result in a grade reduction.

Sociology

cities and suburbs often need to focus on economic development and growth in order to expand their tax base and revenue, partly because they are so dependent on property and sales taxes, and especially property taxes. However, attracting businesses and promoting growth can be difficult, and growth does not always deliver on the promises made by its advocates. In fact, it can sometimes entail financial costs and potentially hurt the “quality of life” in cities.

I’m curious what people think about growth and economic development for cities. What are some of the pros and cons of economic growth? How should cities try to judge when attracting businesses and promoting growth is beneficial? You might think about the Native American casinos (Foxwoods and the Mohegan Sun) and the impacts they have had on local towns and the economy of the region. What have some of the pros and cons been, and is this “good” economic development?
