Governments in NIC (newly industrialized countries) have tried to lure TNC to their countries. One way they have done this is by keeping the land prices artificially low; this is so the TNC can build factories and other building for less money. They also have a relaxed attitude to environmental laws so the TNCs do not have to pay out for expensive treatments for their waste so it complies with strict laws like the ones they have in the US, UK and Japan. Another thing that attracts TNCs to NICs is the cheap labour cost, weak unions and lack of minimum wage. This means that the TNC can pay workers less, not worry about providing good working conditions.
Free labor would promote better competition for businesses, thus arising in new businesses and companies. This will keep cash flow constantly going. During this time we should increase our knowledge with new technology so that we as humans can create an easier living for ourselves. With the slave system this reduces the need for technological advancements and defeats the purpose of why we should invent machines to make our jobs easier. Slave owners can lower the price on their products, but in the long run that can cause the farmer financial ruin.

Why the Bush Tax Cut Is Beneficial for America Currently the US government has over a 5.6 trillion-dollar surplus, with it expected to only get bigger(Fineman and Thomas 20). This means that the government is taking in a lot more money than it is spending. What’s the primary way the government takes in money? Taxing the people. If the government is taking in more taxes than it needs, what should be done?
A 2004 study in the Journal of Human Resources by economists William Wascher, Mark Schweitzer and David Neumark determined that lower-wage union workers typically see a boost in employment and earned income following a mandated wage hike. Never mind the corresponding drop in jobs and earned income for nonunion minimum-wage workers. They may have been priced out of the jobs they need, but that is not the union's concern—its members have landed higher wages and reduced competition for jobs. Such considerations are worth keeping in mind when contemplating the president's wage proposal and the fervent Democratic support for similar and often more ambitious measures, such as Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin's bill to raise the minimum wage to $9.80. Labor unions spent an estimated $174 million on the 2012 election, with 91% of the money going to Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
No reducing the size of our footprint will not reduce our quality of life; we can still have a quality of life but by reducing our footprint will better our life. 7. Are there ways of enhancing quality of life while lowering impact? Yes we can begin by driving a higher mileage car, generating less waste, saving money by using more-efficient
Producing cars that are more efficient and improving gadgets in the buildings help immensely to reduce the power consumption. Simply turning off computer monitors every night saved the United Technologies Corp. $100,000 in just one facility. Using sensors to turn off lights also can save energy consumption by 5%.These would also help so that our reserves can stay exactly that, reserved. Our dependency on other countries causes us to be less responsible with our reserves. Lessening our dependency on oil will help us to leave the reserved oil alone.
