Agriculture tended to be inefficient and backward, particularly in the South where the ‘latifondi’ dominated. The industrial development that did occur did so exclusively in the North and this reinforced an existing economic divide between North and South, as the North was developing economically and the south remained backward and deprived of industry. Poor economic conditions resulted in large-scale emigration particularly to North America. Therefore, the basis of the division within Italy was economic failure, and as the economics of a country is fundamental to its success, the north-south divide in relation to economics was a significant attribute to the weaknesses of the
Not only were shops greatly affected but feudalism was as well. The serfs started to not work in the fields, causing the lords of the manors to do their own labor. With the constant threat of death all over Europe it forced people to isolate themselves, creating an economic
The wars meant it had expense and disrupt in trade. Example of this was the west coast ports depended on trade from West Indies and American colonies which was disrupted during the war time. This affected France because due to the lack of trade and industries got disrupted and the workers income was affected by this. These problems were multiplied because the end of the war was followed by economic depression. The political impact of France was the main factor that spread ideas.
It spreads the risk making the cost per person less. It is natural for one company to put all its employees in a group so they can all get insurance at a reduced cost than if they bought insurance as individuals. At 3/05/2012 10:19 PM, ws4whgfb said... Why single out medical care? Food is more essential to life than medical care. Why not exempt the cost of food from taxes if provided by the employer?
Unhealthy calories come from unhealthy farms. The system we currently follow is obiously tweaked, and Pollan calls out for a change, but that change must come from the eaters themselves. The food system we currently follow is focused on supplying large amounts of food for a cheaper price, and that usually means that it is not the healthiest. Our plummeting health is the price eaters must endure just to save that extra dollar, or to get a “buy one get one free” product. Never have I seen a bag of spinach or a head of broccoli that was advertised as “buy one get one free.” This is due to the fact that if all of a sudden healthy foods were as cheap as unhealthy foods, people would “vote” differently.
Food shortages were a key problem in Russia as it meant the people were starving and desperate. It has consistently been a problem to the rulers of Russia such as the Provisional government. The people wanted change but they also wanted grain to feed themselves and their family. It was important that the food crisis would be solved by the Bolsheviks in order to gain the support of the people; however, due to Russia’s poor transport and little fertile land, it was simply an impossible job for any party or rulers of Russia especially due to the high demand of the huge populace. The demand for food has always been high in Russia which meant that no matter what reforms or radical changes a party can bring in, if they can’t feed the people there will always be bitterness which can and did result in opposition to Lenin and his Bolsheviks.
This meant trade to other countries went down bringing the economy to yet another low and this lack of agricultural workers meant a lack of food across Russia, especially in towns and cities where there was no easy access to farms; and as is with most things in demand, the prices went through the roof, leaving peasants starving on a mass scale. The only short term fix that was established for this whole issue, was a series of loans from Russia’s allies, Britain and France; these loans are especially important when it comes to the provisional government’s role in the second revolution in 1917. The other major issue that was gained from the World War is the amazing show of incompetence from Russian military leaders, most notably Nicholas II. This led to a decreasing
Strikes by workers crippled some parts of the nation when the grain and livestock couldn’t reach the market place. Factories shut down due to lack of coal to power them. Unions that went on strike used violence as their way of protest, and federal troops had to be called in to quite the violence. At this time in history, the citizens were supporting the unions even if they were young in their infancy. However with all the riots and violence, they lost the support of the public In 1890, law after law was passed in the Republican Congress, massive spending towards grants and appropriations.
They think raising taxes on junkfood will help obesity becuase not as many people will buy it. This is a bad idea, let me tell you why. The government has already tried this with tobacco products becuase they thought if they raised taxes on tabacco people would quit using them because they were too expensive. It didn't work though people just paid the extra taxes. Here are a few more reasons why its a bad idea.
“BLOODY SUNDAY WAS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CAUSES OF THE 1905 REVOLUTION” To what extent do you agree? Although Bloody Sunday marked the breakdown of the Tsar and autocratic government, there were many other long and short term causes that provided the build up of tension and ultimately led to the revolution of 1905; Bloody Sunday was the final straw for the peasants and the other groups in Russian life, rather than a key cause. The most significant causes were mostly long term. Firstly, there was the terrible work and living conditions of the peasants, alongside the low wages they received. The lack of usable land in Russia and the subdivison of land between families both resulted in an incredibly low income, especially for larger families.
