3. Which of the following would be the best example of consumer surplus? a. Jane does not get cell-phone service because she feels that it is worth less than the $30 a month fee. b. Sam pays $8 for a haircut that is worth $10 to him. c. Ralph buys a house for $104,000, the maximum amount that he would be willing to pay for it.
I don’t think Mama had too much of an education as most African American people in the 1950’s did not, because Mama uses the money to help her family and does not even think about investing it to make more. Granted in the era of this film $10,000 could go a long way, still she has no value for money, just what she believes to be best for her family. Mama buys a house for the Younger family and gives the remaining money to Walter to disperse for himself after putting a set amount in a bank account for Benethas schooling(again $10,000 went a long way in the 50’s). The dream that Ruth had was to move into a bigger and better house. Beneatha’s dream is the one that like Langston Hughes poem “Dream Deferred” it “just sags like a heavy load.” meaning that maybe you know that what you dream can never be anything more than just a dream, and it pulls you down that you feel you cannot pursue them.
The revelation of her poverty to the people she meets, who doesn’t exactly give her the things she needs, makes her feel mortified. There are countless needs for an individual in poverty, which they do not receive. When Parker sought for help she got it but it was barely enough for the necessities she and her children need. She uses logos to explain the cause and effect of the seventy-eight dollars she gets every month. She pays twenty dollars rent and the “rest goes for food.” This is the reason why she and her children can’t get the other necessities they need, including the children’s education.
Terry’s key performance areas are focused on the location of her store and the brand of upscale products to provide consumers in that location. So I believe her goal is realistic because she has researched on her products quality, the customer demand for the product in the area and considered the income range that would afford the products. Not only is Terry’s goal realistic but it will help her be successful in her business. Terry’s idea for her eyewear business will be successful because of her effective planning and well thought forecast on her financial objectives. Terry estimated her investment on the product should be 75,000 to 95,000 in inventory to begin with considering off peak times when customers are likely to buy.
To begin with, according to the Rosenbloom, we can’t be happy with making a lot of money and spending too much on things. Tammy Strobel was caught in what she calls a “work –spend treadmill” (qtd in Rosenbloom16). Ms.Stroble wasn’t happy with her luxurious life. Therefore, she search in internet to find happiness and she found it on living in a simple life. As a result, she and her husband donated most of their things and kept only 100 items.
One of the first problems that will cause a couple to fall out of love quickly is unemployment. Once there is no money coming into a house, love will diminish. It has been my observation that love does not conquer the fact that people are unable to pay their bills and enjoy the pleasures of life. I have witnessed firsthand the problems that occur with the lack of finances. My aunt married her high school sweetheart, and has said several times that he is the only man that she has ever loved.
The first stanza opens with quite a negative view of the journey as it highlights the physical struggles that each of the Magi had alonng the way: "A cold coming we had of it" The use of alliteration on the harsh sound of the 'c' draws attention to the cold and alerts the reader to what time of year it is. This can be considered an unusual image to be associated with jesus as the birth of christ is normally considered to be a joyous event. The fact that the first five lines are in quotes highlights the fact that these lines were actually taken from a sermon by Lancelot Andrews who was a
The majority of this story explains Della’s love for her husband, Jim. It is particularly apparent from the first paragraph the amount love and respect Della has for him. This is highlighted when Della sells her fantastic, long, treasured hair to buy Jim a gift for Christmas as she had only managed to ‘‘scrape’’ (p.2) $1.87 from her hard earnings. Not only had she worked tirelessly to earn enough money to keep them eating and living under a roof, she wanted to do more to surprise the man she cared for. At this point, I was sure it was Della that worshipped her husband and he was not so devoted to his wife.
