During World War 11, Australia became very vulnerable with the threat of being attacked by Japan. We must “Populate or Perish” was the thought of the era, as the threat of invasion from the more populated areas of Asia seemed real to Australians of the time. To increase its population Australia increased its industrial development to attract people and a mass migration became the result. This time other Europeans such as the Dutch, Italians and Greeks were included, but no Asians.The unforgettable lines stated by an Immigration minister, “Two wongs do not make a white” say everything about t
Individuals need goods and services to survive in this world. Goods such as food and shelter, and services such as health and education are examples of goods and services which we depend on in this day and age. Goods and Services may be essential, basic needs for human survival but humans also want other goods and services that would improve their quality of life (i.e. Needs are the basic necessities of life such as food, shelter and clothing and Wants are materialistic, non-essential items of request from individuals or the community).
The economic problem is due to individuals having finite needs and infinite wants and there are only limited, finite resources to satisfy them.
Their wants are unlimited- as soon as they satisfy one want, another want to be satisfied would arise. Factors which effect the number of wants are due to: Recurrent wants (wants which individuals satisfycontinually; example food and newspapers), Complementary wants (wants that naturally follow the initial satisfaction of another want; example CD player and CDs) and time (as we grow older our wants change due to age, income, technology and fashion; example a 5 year old boy would want a scooter but when he is 25 he would rather a house).

Any person who has ever used the services of aircraft companies and had an opportunity to observe common procedures and processes that usually occur inside and outside the terminals while waiting for the flight will agree with this fact without hesitation. Taking into account the fact that every international airport usually has several hundred departure and arrival flights per day, it's possible to imagine what a high level of accuracy is needed in order to make this system function properly, without delays and mistakes, for a mistake in this situation can be a risk of human lives. Recent tragic events caused by terrorist attacksshow that there is still a lot to be done to improve the system in order to make it perfect.
An airport can be viewed as a complex multi-level mechanism, proper functioning of which depends on correct work of its sub-mechanisms, which in their turn divide in their own mechanisms. As in any mechanism,...
