This is a contradiction because one of the inspectors involved was really stupid and showed it in the way that he got angry when Jamal used big words or said something he didn’t understand. So, not all upper class people are smarter. Latika had it worse because she was poor and female. In most third world, or less developed countries, women are seen as inferior and permanently unintelligent. The gangsters in the film all believed this about Latika and all made choices and decisions for her without her consent because she was “weak” and an
It was believed that poverty was the individuals own fault, due to their own personal defects and moral failures. The poor were treated like inferior criminals. There crime being poverty. Norman Pearson who was voice on the topic at this time believed poor people living in poverty were “seldom capable of reform”, they tended to be “made of inferior materials… and cannot be improved” and the poor should be prevented from breading as the poor were poor “in their blood and their bones”. People became concerned about the percentage of the poor living in poverty and the extent of poverty in which they were living.
Welfare, a controversial topic in the United States, is defined as “a governmental agency that provides funds and aid to people in need, especially those unable to work.” (dictionary.com) It was first introduced in the United States after the Great Depression of the 1930s “to ensure that the health and hope of the country’s people would not be crushed by an impersonal economic system” (welfare is the best way….CITE) While some think welfare is abused, when used correctly it is a very necessary tool in the United States. It prevents the cost of living from raising, provides funds for families with low income, and is only provided after several qualifications have been met. At any given time, anywhere from four to eleven percent of the United States population is unemployed. Only a small portion--averaging four percent of the population--of these unemployed citizens receive welfare. These numbers are less than half the number of families receiving welfare before it was ever reformed.
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.
In other words, the cost of raising fund is the firm’s cost of capital. Estimate a firm’s cost of capital is important because can help conclude required return for capital budgeting projects. Usually, the investor only picks up the project which provides higher return and lower risk on investments. Since the cost of capital is the minimum return required by investors, manager should invest only in projects that generate returns in excess of the cost of capital. Cost of capital can help define the acceptability of investment opportunities.
Immigrants and low class citizens have been treated poorly by the upper class American. In the film “Bread and Roses,” we see the exploitation and the low wages of the immigrants in their jobs, the rights to freedom of speech, and the respect to people’s job. Maya and the other janitors work very hard, harder than most high paid Americans, and get paid little to nothing. “The lucky sewing company workers got so angry when the boss’s daughter called the police on us because we wanted our back pay. They are the ones that owed us money, but they still used the police to kick us out!” (Ching Yoon Louie 50).
This decentralisation of government through the aristocracy was also inefficient and chaotic. It meant that Louis had little idea how much money he was spending (and therefore how bankrupt the country actually was) government was so chaotic that 'budget' was a term unknown to French officials, and Louis' government ended up in a deficit spiral (where the interest on loan repayments is greater than tax revenue) which in turn led to even high taxes. Economic mismanagement meant that people went hungry- and as Lefebvre famously argues, the revolution began with the hungry peasants of the north. added to this economic mismanagement was Louis' image problem. Whilst the people starved, he continued his sumptuous (and very expensive) living at Versailles.
This is in line with the normative usage of human nature... adverse judgment upon social conditions which fail the very needs common and intrinsic to humankind... One of Marx’s criticisms of capitalism is that millions of people’s most basic biological needs — let alone higher needs such as the need for creative fulfillment — are not met. 1.02 billion People in the world suffer from malnutrition , and 1 billion do not have access to clean drinking water . Socialists condemn such shocking failures precisely because people have needs and potentialities that are being abused or left unfulfilled. All of these problems “have an irreducible human-natural component”... “of general and basic human needs, in this case unsatisfied, disregarded, thwarted, sometimes
Wage gap is seen throughout history as a negative aspect as most individuals would think that women work as much as men, maybe even more, yet tend to have a lower salary and worse living conditions. Most of the community however never thought about why wage gap is a good thing but rather accuse firms and governments by pointing out sexism and the suffering of women worldwide. Many studies on the gender wage gap tended to focus on whether sexism is the reason for the wage gap, or if the gap is driven predominantly by the difference between both genders’ human capital attainment.
Firstly an argument for compulsory voting in Britain is that in all democracies around the world, voter apathy is highest amongst the poor and uneducated. These are the most poorly represented people in society as they are intimidated by politics and feel that their one vote would make no difference to their situation so feel that voting would be a waste of time. However, because these groups in society such as the unemployed do not vote, political parties do not create policies to meet their needs. This means that a vicious circle begins and the unrepresented go on being unrepresented because they do not vote. If voting was compulsory these groups in society would have no choice but to take a greater interest in politics and by voting or talking to their local MP their situation may be improved by the introduction of new policies.
