  • Absolute Government
  • Dictatorship
  • Communism

Migration

We learned that there are different reasons for migration. Sometimes you move because you want a new job, or that the houses are better there, or that you will be closer to family. That's a pull migration. When you have to move because of a tornado, or a flood that forces you to move, then that's called a push migration.
