Here's a ton of cash, why don't you have some?" Eventually FDR was able to create a Hollow Economy, a state in which the economy appears to be flourishing, but in reality, the rich are getting richer, and the poor poorer. Although the WPA and NRA both did a great job of decreasing unemployment, they also did a great job of taking our riches. So how does all of this affect us? Well, it's simple.
Meanwhile, the richest Americans continue to expand their wealth. The middle class in this country is dying, while the millionaires and billionaires prosper. More and more people are slipping into poverty, while many Republicans oppose tax hikes for the “job creators”. Paine also describes America as a place free of conflict, and as place where “every difficulty retires and all the parts are brought into cordial unison.” This not only does not hold true today, but it contradicts one of the fundamental characteristics of America: the fact that as Americans we are entitled to disagree with each other and argue endlessly about any given subject. Argument and disagreement are huge part of what makes his country great.
Many people believe that the trickle-down theory is just an excuse to justify favoring the rich financially and the benefits keep going to those richer people. This may have begun with Reagan, mostly. But I think this problem did not just happen suddenly. This was something that started as a small justification for reasons the economy was looking horrible to the majority. But, it took years for us to create the mess America is now seeing with these theories in place.
Over the course of the war new weapons, vehicles and armor were created and for those who it protected or helped were the ones that most likely survived to fight another day. With the creation of these new technologies also can relief for the economy because the war economy took place where the normal economy was failing because the US was buying these new technologies from companies that were in the US which put money into the economy (war economy). The war itself cost the US $22,625,253,000 and it cost the Allied Powers in total all together $125,690,477,000. All of that money is what went back into the economy of failing countries and brought the US out of the Great Depression. There were about 35,000,000 uniformed people who were killed, wounded, or POW [prisoners of war]
Initially as they become elected with the most altruistic of intentions it seems as if they sincerely believe that they are on the side the people, but the machination of Washington politics tends to slowly exact its toll while they serve their term in office. What drives this machine is money and lots of it, as the amount to run and keep their position is growing exponentially every year. In order to preserve their job while in congress concessions must be made and at the heart of these concessions is basically condoned bribery. In So Much Damn Money: the Triumph of Lobbying and the Corrosion of American Government, author Robert Kaiser quotes Democratic congressman Leon Panetta saying that “ legalized bribery has become part of the culture of how this place operates[ todays House and Senate members] rarely legislate; they basically follow around the money”. Keep in mind that congressman Panetta was referring to his term in office that ended in 1997 which reinforces how ingrained the practice of money pandering has become within congress as well as showcasing that this practice is not new by any means.
He was advised that market busts were just a part of capitalism, which had the therapeutic benefits of cleansing the system of unproductive firms. The business culture vehemently apposed federal aid to the unemployed and prompted individual citizens to “tighten their belts” as a way to escape the turmoil. The Hawley-Smoot Tariff made the economic situation worse by raising the cost of imported goods but more importantly received reciprocal treatment for the obvious protectionist action. American products became increasingly more difficult to sell around the world. By 1932, Hoover admitted that voluntary actions on the part of businessmen were not capable of lifting the country out of the recession.
They also thought that having a large empire would help to make them richer and more militarily powerful .People were greedy to get their hands on the colony for the sake of the money they can get. The idea of imperialism started after the Industrial Revolution. Many countries seen the new inventions and thought that they needed it to make their lives easier. So they gathered all the raw materials they can get and make those inventions to benefit them at their life. The other countries began to start feel jealous, so they did the same.
The movement has most of its protestors as the unemployed graduates who have loans that they should pay. In their expedition to fight for equality, they have created awareness on the many issues that are affecting the society at large. This has resulted in many voters being keen during the presidential debates so as to hear who is offering better policies that will reduce the inequalities. As a result, it is clear that even though the movement might fade away, it has affected the politics and the society’s
Many people I believe would rather work hard for their achievements rather than hurt those around them to get ahead. Human society is generally full of capitalism and greed. With the continual growth of business and economy, there are people and corporations that may stoop to low levels to bring themselves ahead of others and to be more profitable. In that regard, Macbeth
This is another reason for the American taxpayer to look down on upon welfare recipients. Our national economic situation is going create a longer list that will to have to go on welfare and it will not get any better if something is not done to fix it. Although some people who defraud the system are caught, too many more people get away with it. There are millions of Americans that use welfare as it is intended, they get off of it and become more productive members of society. It is up to our leaders to do what is best for the entire nation by passing new Welfare Reform legislation that will punish those more harshly and get the financial aid to
