While others will argue back because they believe they earned all of the money and could be that some are stubborn and hard headed. So lets get on with this debate and you tell me your own opinion on why they get too much money or they earn every penny they get. So to start this debate we will go over the pro’s of getting paid this much money and why they do. For instance some believe they are not over paid due to the risk of injuries that could put them out of the sport the rest of their life giving the reason why they get paid so much money. Also some will say they deserve the check due to all the work they put into it, because when the season is over they are still training and getting ready for the next season.
They possess the money that they need to work with to invest and buy housing and are able to benefit from these rising asset prices because it makes their items worth more generating even more wealth. When the poor lose their houses, the rich are able to go in and take over their housing to make profit off of them while the merit of them rises. The investment of stocks is a big income maker as the price of them decays during the recession, then later on stabilizes and increases in most cases. The prosperous are the ones that can easily pay for post-secondary education to pursue a decent well-paying job. They do not have the financial stress to go along with the cost of their education.
Who is benefiting from outsourcing? Investor, shareholders, and American consumers profit from outsourcing. However, the countries that the jobs are outsourced to benefit the most, for example, housing jobs for foreign companies boost the economy by increasing employment at the expense of millions of American jobs. For decades, jobs have been moving away from the United States. James Park (2010,
Furthermore I also find it hard to believe the fact that a lot of the professional athletes complain to the world that they can’t support their families. How is that even possible when everyone else in the world finds a way to make it with just a portion of the money that the athletes make. The athletes just start out greedy and continue to get even greedier. But really they have nothing to get mad about they can buy a house that cost less than 10 million dollars just like anyone else can. Maybe they need a good slap to the face and we should not pay them what they want, so what if they said they won’t play because I guarantee there are people out there that will play for way less money.
Purchasing Happiness. Money is something that is needed for practically everything people do in life. People can’t get food without money, people can’t buy a car without money, and people certainly can’t go to college without money. In today’s society some people put more emphasis on how much money is needed and how much value is really placed on a dollar. Many tend to associate money with power while others may associate it as a cure for their problems.
Most of this overpopulation is taking place in poor countries where poverty is running rampant. Some countries are wealthy and overpopulated because they have a much bigger country and can function with the high population. When you have a small country that is already poor and u keep reproducing more and more children you will run out of necessities that are vital to living and success. 3. What does Hardin cite as the “tragedy of the commons”?
In fact, American society seems to base the whole concept of being successful primarily by how much money a person earns. But society’s definition has more to do with flash than it does with substance. For example, measuring success in business according to people's income, the floor their office is on, what kind of car they drive, and the clothes they wear is one. However, if your business efforts provide a substantial momentary reward but you don’t enjoy what you do, are you really successful? For example, Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, interviewed Carl Karcher, the founder of Carl's Jr. Carl stated that his philosophy is-“Never give up!
Arundhati Roy’s text “Excerpts from War Talk” and “Why the Rich are Getting Richer and the Poor Poorer” by Robert Reich are two texts explaining the major reasons of why in todays society rich people get richer while poor become poorer. Unfortunately, the society is very unfair. There is a system in place that is controlled by a handful of extremely wealthy people, who often were luckily born into the right families and never worked their way to the top. These people in power positions have the game rigged to continue to benefit them and to protect their heritage. Your future wealth is no longer depending on how hard you work; there are hardworking intelligent people and hard working less intelligent people in all groups of society.
Many may argue that the falling economy and the wealthy not wanting to share their shares is to blame for the raising rates of poverty here in the states. Poverty of course, has a lot to do with money and income but underneath that it is has a deeper story. Stories of how different people are suffering from it and how they are managing to live day by day. It almost seems as if it’s a foreign nation of its own and you only understand the concepts if you are in it. There is no doubt that here in America we are dealing with one of the greatest economic downfalls.
We live in a very materialistic world and one in which money is very valuable to us. The people of the world all have to rely on money to survive, because money is the only thing that let us obtain the sources of survival. Food and housing is often a problem in our society, but the reason it is so hard to obtain them is because of lack of money. Bertrand Russell explains in Political Ideas about his view of force. The force, which he speaks of, is the “[m]aterial possessions [that] can be taken by force” (Russell 9).
