Luke Troutman Mrs. B.L. Honors English III September 30, 2008 Wealth Overcomes Love In The Great Gatsby; Tom, Daisy, and Myrtle’s desire for wealth prohibits them from developing substantial relationships. Living a lavish lifestyle, with constant happiness keeps them from actually loving a person for who they are, not how they live. This shows a want for happiness in men, or women, and how they forget about love to obtain happiness and worldly possessions. Since he was a child Tom had always been wealthy acquiring everything he desired causing him to act childishly always wanting his way and to become wealthier.
The fact that people would travel West and have a new way of life using the new technology and at the same time being able to have land that was all their own.

TRUNG NGUYEN ENGLISH 190 MONICA BARRON Oct. 18, 2012 Has the American Dream Died? “The American Dream” has many different interpretations, but the most popular one is that of James Adams in 1931: “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” (The Epic of America). In general, “the American Dream” is an ideal life in which each and every American will have freedom, equality, opportunity, personal happiness and material comfort. But the realization of this Dream has been questioning since the economic developments as well as government policies have created a big gap between the upper-class and the middle- and lower-class in America’s society. This gap has led to the decreasing of education’s quality, and the inequality in residents’ income.
Ted Turner exemplifies the American dream. The American Dream is defined by people immigrating into America to make a better lifestyle for themselves and better lives for their families. America has many more job opportunities to offer than most other countries, and the demand for jobs is high (Washington Post). This was the exact same way with the pilgrims coming to the “New World” to make a new life for themselves. They came for new job opportunities, to make names for themselves in the new world, and to establish themselves and their family’s lifestyles.
All of these issues helped to shape the American nation and its people. After the Civil War, the development of improved industrial methods and the arrival of masses of immigrants eager for factory jobs launched a new era of mass production in the United States. The nation turned its efforts toward economic recovery and expansion. America's abundant supply of natural resources, such as coal and oil, encouraged investment. Much of this investment came from already industrialized countries like Germany, Great Britain, and France whose business owners looked for new investment opportunities in the United States.
In the 19th century thousands travelled to America for a better life these people could have been anything from the Irish to the Germans, they all went to America in the hope of making their life better and achieving the ‘American dream’. A lot of people immigrated to the US in the 19th century because they thought it was the key to getting better jobs and wages. The US’s industry is more advanced at the time than any other place so being able to work somewhere which was producing something on mass scales and that would have nee more man power so it could operate, these business were thought to earn you more money and give you a better style of life. So people in the 19th century immigrated to the US because they were in search of a better life which they would be able to have jobs with decent wages. The people who had immigrated to the US wanted decent wages to buy or rent houses with so they would have some where to stay while working, the accommodation in the US was seen to be better because you would be able to live in places where you would not be persecuted fro your religion or ethnic origin.
NATIONAL COMMISSION ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP WHITE PAPER EMBRACING INNOVATION: ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND AMERICAN ECONOMIC GROWTH America’s booming entrepreneurial sector is responsible for much of today’s economic prosperity. Entrepreneurs take advantage of new wealth-creating opportunities that arise daily from constant change. This phenomenon – creating opportunity from change -- has been part of the American culture since the 19th century Industrial Revolution. Today, an entrepreneurial renaissance is transforming American business and society. And its very success creates new challenges and opportunities for American policymakers.
Isn’t today’s “American Dream” to also be comfortable with elaborate and fancy material possessions? Both decades had many concepts and techniques towards accomplishing their dream, but they were both aiming for the same goal: to live the high life prosperously. In the 1980s the incomes for many middle-class people stayed stagnant, but high prices began to rise. This affected families financially. Wealthier families could afford to pay the rising prices, but the middle-class society started to have problems with ascending rates.
Companies fought the government and the courts for the right to become incorporated and to reap its many benefits. Capitalism has adapted in order to continue making profits. Capitalism was the primary reason for the shift from Fordism to Post-Fordism, as Post-Fordism was a more efficient model of production meaning greater profits. Capitalism requires ever expanding markets and constantly evolving methods of production, lest it cease to exist (Marx & Engels, 1848). In order to achieve this a production revolution of sorts took place in many advanced economies, countries shifted from Fordism to Post-Fordism.
