Traffic and housing problem in major cities could be solved by moving large companies and factories and their employees to the countryside. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
这道题审题时要注意的小点比较多，大家注意这样几个关键词：traffic problem, housing problems, companies & factories & employees。如果要同意，我们可以写此举可以解决traffic problem & house problem；如果要反对，我们既可以从问题得不到解决的角度切入，也可以从对公司、工厂和员工带来种种不便的角度切入。
Some people argue that the dispersal of businesses is an effective method of easing housing shortage and traffic jams. Although I do agree that such measures will mitigate the problem to some extent, I think the compensation the companies make is too immense.
The mass exodus from city centers to suburban or rural areas will undoubtfully decrease the urban population density, which will ease the acute housing shortage and automobile congestion. When reside and work on the outskirts of a city, employees can enjoy a shorter commute, and generally do not need to enter the city centre, unless some scarce resources are needed, for example, those of medical care. The fewer companies and workers remain in the city, the more accommodation and traffic spaces are available, making the whole urban life more enjoyable.
However, when companies and factories are forced to relocate to suburban or even rural areas, they will find it inconvenient to perform their operations. Their customers may be left behind in central business districts, and the long distance between them takes a long time for a simple visit, which is vital for many deals. Moreover, commercial infrastructures, such as high-speed access to the internet, taxation, and other government services, are less developed in these areas, impeding companies’ development. To make matters worse, their remote locations, which lack attraction for talents who often prefer a colorful and comfortable urban life, make it harder to recruit employees they want.
In conclusion, though the relocation is effective in solving urban dilemmas, I do not think it is feasible since few companies and their employees are willing to make the move.
