The events leading to this notable and heavily debated “bailout” are varied and disputable. Beginning in mid 2008 there were several important indicators worldwide foretelling a likely economic crisis. Some indicators included high oil prices, which led to both high food prices (due to a dependence of food production on petroleum and using food crop products such as ethanol and bio-diesel as an alternative to petroleum), global inflation, a substantial credit crisis leading to the bankruptcy of large and well established investment and commercial banks in various nations around the world, increased unemployment, and the possibility of a global recession.

The war time excesses in production transformed into prosperity during the next decade which would watch America seek continued isolation despite the mounting global challenges. The Great War and the resulting Versailles Treaty left Europe in a rather deprived and devastated state where the Europeans continued to seek cultural and economic assistance from their cross-Atlantic neighbors. With new job opportunities, progressive ideas, an air of liberalism had developed around the American continent. This openness and jubilance was most evident in the arts, entertainment and economic sectors of the economy.

The telegram and the excessive sea warfare definitely played a part in America going to war, however, there are additional possibilities, if not definite reasons, that lead the U.S. into war. Because of possible economic collapse according to the Glider Lehrman Institute of American History, "By 1917, American loans to the Allies had soared to $2.25 billion; loans to Germany stood at a paltry [measly] $27 million." If not anything else, this would be a huge reason to go to war. Two and a quarter billion dollars is a large sum of money, and if the United States were to lose this money, it would have more than likely been catastrophic and it would've brought about economic collapse in America.

Mr. Kinsley even gives credit to former President George W. Bush Jr. making a “huge increase in public sensitivity to anti-Muslim and anti-Arab prejudice”, a primary focus after the terrorist attacks. Although it took many years for the general population to accept Muslims into society again, it happened. A large contributor to the reintegration of Muslims was the airport securities transition from “racial profiling” spot checks to random spot checks. That being said, and it now being twelve years later, this article does not make for a strong, effective argument.

Reflection on A Government Ill Executed Paul Volcker begins the foreword of the book stating, “Nothing is more certain in American political life than complaints about the performance of the federal government. At the same time, there are insistent demands for government to do more—to provide more security, personal, national, and financial; to improve health care; to protect the environment; to build transport systems; not least to build a strong and independent judiciary.” We have come to expect much of our federal government, yet at the same time we are often critical about its performance. The size and scope of government has drastically increased over the last century, and with that came an increase in the potential for inefficiency and ill execution. Paul Light addresses this issue in the context of Alexander Hamilton’s argument in Federalist No. 70, which warned of the dangers of an ill-executed government.
