Urbanization, a common phenomenon in recent years, has been in a hot debate. Critics argue that it requires the government to build roads on the farmlandbelonging to farmers. Owning to the sufficient compensation of government in expropriating their land, many farmers would abandon the fertile farmland to kill the time through all kinds of entertainment activities. As a consequence, the price of commodities has been increasing tremendously. A typical case is that the price of pork is so high that many citizens cannot afford it. There is no denying that the rapid development of cities will provoke some bad results, however, it’s advantages overweigh the disadvantages, hence I have a firm belief that the city’s fast development is beneficial for society.
To begin with, the development of city will provide more job opportunity so as to reduce unemployment rate. In order to build a prosperous and modern city, a large number of workers are required in constructing all kinds of roads, such as the turnpike, the highway, the skyway, houses as well as buildings like the skyscrapers, which will be in need of many blue collar workers. Later, when a city is developing, entrepreneurs will detect the business opportunity there and seize the chance to start a business there. Then a lot of work opportunity for white collar works will ensue, which will in turn stimulate the city to achieve rapid development. Everything will be in a virtuous cycle.
What’s more, from economic perspective, the city’s development will also stimulate domestic demand, so the GDP per capita will also rise. People’s living standard will also be improved. Taking my hometown Wuhan as an example, 20 years ago, it was nothing more than a capital of Hubei Province, well-known for its food. People from other places were reluctant to visit it since it was just a dilapidated small city. Nowadays, things are quite different. Not only has it become the most developed city in midland, but also one of the top ten cities in China. Consequently, more citizens are dying for purchasing a local apartment to live or to invest. Besides, the city has also become a tourism attraction. Both of which, in some way, increase local residents’ income and provide them with a affluent life.
Last but not least, opponents insist that the city’s development is at the expense of devastating the environment, but in my opinion, this view is partial and not persuading. Admittedly, some city governors does neglect the significance of environmental protection, and not give priority to taking care of the environment, but the fact is for the sake of building a harmonious and prosperous society, what we should do first is to accelerate the development of economy of a city. Only by this way, can people earn their daily bread and manage to make both ends meet. Pollution can be abated as soon as the science and technology could reach certain level. Therefore, taking everything into consideration, the city’s rapid development still plays a role in social development.
All in all, as the old saying goes, every coin has two sides. The development of city is bound to trigger some negative effects, such as pollution or the increasing commodity prize, but there are more benefits. Such as the higher employment rate and average per capita income, not to mention the abundant medical resources and educational resources, all of which can indicate the social progress. Thus it is safe to draw a conclusion that the rapid development of city indeed has a positive effect on social development.
