Please respond to the following:

  • Go to https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ and review the countries located there. Select one (1) country to base your discussion posts and written assignments upon throughout the course. It should be one that has special meaning for you and / or one that you are interested in learning more about. Once you choose a country, you will not be able to change it so give it some careful consideration. Only one (1) student per country!
  • Explain why you chose this particular country. Why is it important to you (e.g., nationality, origin, and travel experience). Paraphrasing the CIA World Factbook or other reference, describe your country by giving a brief background of its location, a demographic profile that includes population and age structure, and a brief economic overview from 2013 to today.
  • Week 2

  • Week 3

Discuss the amount of the tariff you will have to pay.
