Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

The economic costs involved in the measures taken up for reducing carbon emissions outweigh the economic benefits that India would get from rapid industrialization. Thus, there is a moral dilemma that India faces to sacrifice one for the other. It can incur heavy costs to mitigate climate change and delay its development or not care about climate change and focus on its development.
This paper analyzes this dilemma and also the rationale behind taking up carbon reduction measures when there are other more fundamental issues to be dealt with in the Indian economy

We all know by that human capital and knowledge is valuable in bringing new ideas to an economy and retaining that knowledge to further increase economic development. I believe a parent’s greatest investment is the education they give their kids. If the kids get properly raised and educated, they not only help themselves, but also lift their parents out of poverty and help the wider society. For example, a family that migrates to a city from a rural village will most likely push their kids to get a good education.

An economy or economic system consists of the production, distribution or trade, and consumption of limited goods and services by different agents in a given geographical location. The economic agents can be individuals, businesses, organizations, or governments. Transactions occur when two parties agree to the value or price of the transacted good or service, commonly expressed in a certain currency.
In the past, economic activity was theorized to be bounded by natural resources, labor, and capital. This view ignores the value of technology (automation, accelerator of process, reduction of cost functions), and innovation (new products, services, processes, new markets, expands markets
