My country of choice
My country of choice to research is Equador. This country is part of my parents decent. Particulary my fathers side. That being said it is more of a personal inquiry for me but I feel that since I was born in America and have very little knowledge of it , I am very interested in knowing about my ancestral culture, history and econimical relations with the U.S from a factual point of view, other than what has been taught to me by previous generations within my family. So far I feel as though equadorians migrate here for ecomonic exchange but I am sure as I do my research I will other areas that contribute to their migration, and relations with the United States. I have gone to wikipedia and found it provides many references and links that my guide me to cites that pertain useful information on inquiries being made for the topic of my choice. One link that I found to be useful was http://www.imf.org/ which particulary gives information on monetary funds such as financial analysis and crisis that are developing in other countries. So in my search of my country of choice Equador I was guided to IMFC statements including the most recent which can be downloaded to find issues on the meetings being held. I found this to be convinient and very informative. Those where a few things I was able to get .What it can't give me based on our discussion in class, is the perspective to my argumentive question. That, I will be able to develop based on the facts I obtain from sources such as Wikipedia and others that I will come across.
