They profited immensely, “and so it went, in industry after industry—shrewd, efficient businessmen building empires, choking out competition, maintaining high prices, keeping wages low, using government subsidies. These industries were the first beneficiaries of the ‘welfare state’,” (Zinn 257). And so began the first leanings of America towards a capitalist government. I was not entirely surprised by the events laid out in this chapter. This is getting into the Industrial Revolution, a time where big business controlled the way millions lived and worked.
Joan Lee Period 1, AP Us History 5 January 2010 Chapter 25 America Moves to the City 1865-1900 Through industrial revolutions, many Americans began to abandon their agrarian farm lives and grasp the life of the City.

The gods fear of being forgotten has them constantly threatening the lives of others. They yearn for attention and assurance from other people. Also, they are content on making their lives miserable because that way they can have the assurance of the mortals having constant thoughts about them. This obviously shows their lack of confidence they have in themselves and the mortals. The gods depicted in the Odyssey are shown as needy and sniveling beings.
Occupy Movement In this essay about the occupy movement I will be addressing my opinion about why protestors are making such a big deal about corporations receiving multi millionaire bonuses and if I think what they are doing is right or wrong. The protestors started off as just a handful of people in New York city. It wasn't long before it became more than a handful of people because it isn't just a few people that are being affected by unemployment, it is thousands of people. The unemployment rate right now is at its highest level since the Great Depression. The great depression was a brutal worldwide economic depression in the decade preceding World War II.
Michael chambers September 8th, 2012 ENG-106 Sandi Greene Immigration Control Immigration control does not mean no immigrants, in actuality it should read, illegal immigration control. This hot topic needs looking at carefully, because immigrants do a lot for this country and if they were to all be deported, then parts of the economy of this great nation would decline even more and quicker than it is currently. We hear many stories of how immigrants are taking jobs away from the legal residents and speculation as to how much better life would be for its citizens if those that are here illegally would not take all the jobs and send the money out of the country. From the surface, this looks exactly like that. The economy of the United States is currently in a recession, if not depression.

Architect Daniel. H Burnham designed Chicago to be a nurturing place insisting that the city’s seven miles of lakeshore be public space and free of commercial development.

This is another effect of the war and how it impacted America. With all of the people who lost their jobs, the unemployment rate went down drastically. It became very difficult for people to find jobs and even harder to these people to provide for themselves and their families. The economy crash and recession hit the United States very hard and the citizens of the states are still trying very hard to recover from it. With the help of the government and the president Barack Obama’s efforts to create jobs, the United States are slowly starting to recover from this huge
As the United States saw unprecedented industrial growth following the Civil War an unprecedented demand for labor, mostly cheap and unskilled, also grew. The vast majority of these "new immigrants" came here seeking work and the dream of going from "rags to riches". More so than before, this group of new settlers faced more of a hardship in terms of acceptance. There was a well-known group called the “Know Nothings” who were strongly anti-immigration.
