Canadian History: Pre-Confederation is a survey text that introduces undergraduate students to important themes in North American history to 1867.\u00a0 It provides room for Aboriginal and European agendas and narratives, explores the connections between the territory that coalesces into the shape of modern Canada and the larger continent and world in which it operates, and engages with emergent issues in the field. The material is pursued in a largely chronological manner to the early 19th century, at which point social, economic, and political change are dissected. Canadian History: Pre-Confederation provides, as well, a reconnaissance of historical methodology and debates in the field, exercises for students, Key Terms and a Glossary, and section-by-section Key Points. Although this text can be modified, expanded, reduced, and reorganized to suit the needs of the instructor, it is organized so as to support learning, to broaden (and sometimes provoke) debate, and to engage students in thinking like historians.\u00a0Written and reviewed by subject experts drawn from colleges and universities, this\u00a0is the first open textbook on the topic of Canadian history.","image":"https:\/\/opentextbc.ca\/preconfederation\/wp-content\/uploads\/sites\/22\/2020\/03\/OTB077-01-canadian-history-pre-confederation-2018-COVER-STORE.jpg","author":["@type":"Person","name":"John Douglas Belshaw","slug":"john-douglas-belshaw"],"editor":,"translator":,"reviewedBy":,"illustrator":,"contributor":,"about":["@type":"Thing","identifier":"NH","name":"History","@type":"Thing","identifier":"1KBC","name":"Canada","@type":"Thing","identifier":"HISTORY \/ North America","@type":"Thing","identifier":"HISTORY \/ Canada \/ Pre-Confederation (to 1867)","@type":"Thing","identifier":"HISTORY \/ Canada \/ General","@type":"Thing","identifier":"HISTORY \/ General"],"publisher":"@type":"Organization","name":"BCcampus","address":"@type":"PostalAddress","addressLocality":"Victoria, B.C.","datePublished":"2015-04-13","copyrightHolder":"@type":"Organization","name":"John Douglas Belshaw","license":"@type":"CreativeWork","url":"https:\/\/creativecommons.org\/licenses\/by\/4.0\/","name":"CC BY (Attribution)","code":"CC BY","description":"\u00a9 2015 John Douglas BelshawThe CC licence permits you to retain, reuse, copy, redistribute, and revise this book\u2014in whole or in part\u2014for free providing the author is attributed as follows:Canadian History: Pre-Confederation by John Douglas Belshaw is used under a CC BY 4.0 licence.If you redistribute all or part of this book, it is recommended the following statement be added to the copyright page so readers can access the original book at no cost:Download for free from the B.C.

Water scarcity, and the societal risks it poses, is one of the primary challenges faced by the world today. Over two billion people still live in countries experiencing high water stress, while four billion people experience severe water scarcity for at least one month a year. Poor water quality exacerbates the issue, with 80% of waste water globally being returned to the environment untreated, while 4.5 billion people still lack access to safely managed sanitation services. The "Water scarcity: Addressing the key challenges" report, published by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, calls for action to be taken on a coordinated global basis.
The tenth anniversary edition of the Global wealth report published by the Credit Suisse Research Institute is the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information on global household wealth. Global wealth grew during the past year by 2.6% to USD 360 trillion and wealth per adult reached a new record high of USD 70,850, 1.2% above the level of mid-2018 with Switzerland topping the biggest gains in wealth per adult this year.
The ninth edition of the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Emerging Consumer Survey examines eight major emerging economies with Thailand added as a new market replacing South Africa. The report provides unique bottom-up insights into specific end-markets, products and brand preferences, alongside overall barometers of confidence. With Asia at the center of the emerging consumer theme, India still tops our "scorecard" retaining a bright structural outlook, whereas global political tensions appear to be weighing on Chinese consumer behavior. Latin America's largest economies Brazil and Mexico show a newfound optimism among consumers in the aftermath of political ruptures whilst the continuing economic fallout from weak currencies and political risks in Russia and Turkey have led to reduced consumer confidence.
The ninth edition of the Global wealth report published by the Credit Suisse Research Institute provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information available on global household wealth. During the twelve months to mid-2018, aggregate global wealth rose by $14.0 trillion (4.6%) to a combined total of $317 trillion, outpacing population growth. Wealth per adult grew by 3.2%, raising global mean wealth to a record high of $63,100 per adult. The US contributed most to global wealth adding $6.3 trillion and taking its total to $98 trillion. This continues its unbroken run of growth in both total wealth and wealth per adult every year since 2008. Unsurprisingly, China is now clearly established in second place of the world wealth hierarchy. The country overtook Japan with respect to the number of ultra-high net worth (UHNW) individuals in 2009, total wealth in 2011 and the number of millionaires in 2014.
