Since people tend to pursue things they don’t possess, a mature appearance could become a possible pursuit for adolescent. For instance, when I shop in the Oak Wood Mall in Eau Claire, I can see a large amount of children dressed in beautiful mature outfits and shop with their mothers. Their outfit is nice and eye-catching. Similarly, the adult-style underwear from A&F are marketed as a fashion of maturity. The sexy words “eye candy” and “wink wink” grab people’s attention, and the products are not bad because they are in fashion and feel comfortable.
Witte tried to change this with a series of projects, to help the economy and industry of Russia. He tried many different things such as building a huge railway system called the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia (7000km). This helped Russia modernize by greatly improving infrastructure in the country. He also exploited Russia’s vast quantities of natural resources to sell them/use them in their own economy.
