There aren’t many ways to justify these laws except on the ground of paternalism. We will also discuss how these laws can either be truly paternalistic or are they simply rules to keep you safe. Cars have grown more and more complex over the years. They have gone on and on from metal to plastics the reason being that it makes cars safer and it makes a greater crumble zone. This is where the real money goes.
Yes, It's the great importante for many company to minimise the impact that their products have on the environment ,but it's totally unacceptable for companies to make false claims. Many consumers think that a lot of companies pretended to be green just to charge higher
The current P-plate laws are extremely affective in reducing accidents on the road.This is because they deal with many of the dangers p-plate drivers face while driving, including distractions, driving speed, peer pressure and driver safety. To begin with, the current p-plate laws are affective in reducing accidents while driving because they deal with the important issue of distractions. An example of a distraction that is dealt with by the current p-plate laws is mobile phones. Mobile phones cannot be used by p-plate drivers when driving or while the car is moving or stopped but not parked. This helps to stop accidents because it removes distractions from a p-plate driver so they can focus solely on driving.
The case Kia Motors Corp. v. Ruiz is a very interesting one, in which several legal concepts were applied and debated during litigation. As mentioned above, KIA Motors Corp. argued that they were not liable on a design-defect theory because they complied with the applicable federal safety standards. Also, they argued that being liable on a design-defect theory will create a precedent in which federal safety standards will be omitted in the
When collecting data every detail is important. Practicing proper ethic techniques while collecting data may prevent future lawsuits or other potential risks. Some of the potential ethical concerns concerning the data from the Whitner Autoplex are that small amounts of test subjects do not provide the most accurate information; the data may be inaccurate do to rebates not included in the data, and customer privacy. The data set is only providing information on Whitner Autoplex, and the customers who buy products for Whitner may only like certain vehicles. The data set would gain validity if more test subjects from different Autoplex were included.
The main reason that a government imposes a tax on fossil fuels is to try and correct for the negative externality (pollution) which is produced when they are consumed. Without the tax there would be a market failure as car owners would be over consuming petrol as they are not being charged for the damage to the environment. There are 3 key aspects to this question which are; those that lose from a reduction, those that gain from a reduction and finally at what level the overall price for petrol was before the tax reduction. The major argument for maintaining the level of taxation on petrol and diesel is to protect the environment. When the social costs of consuming a good are higher than the private costs, there is said to be a negative externality.
This seems like a logical assumption; fewer guns equal fewer crimes involving guns. However with a lucrative black market for illegal guns, in place all across America, criminals don’t buy guns from licensed dealers. Admittedly, greater restrictions on legally purchasing guns are just one of many proposed gun control regulations. The reason once again for the inability of these countless regulations to reduce crime is simply that people who intend to use guns for murder or other violent crimes don’t buy guns legally. With criminals buying guns nearly exclusively from the black market, stricter gun control policies might, in fact, encourage crime.
It is important to have agencies like the FDA to ensure the products we are using are safe. Regulations can be cumbersome and costly however, they are necessary to protect the public from harm’s way. Protecting our health is the most important job of the federal government. Without regulation and over site companies would be allowed to produce inferior and harmful products. Bibliography Andrea C.

In “What Matters in America” author Goshgarian brings up different issues in regards to materialism. One principle that is discussed is utilitarianism or the practicality of something. In my experience the practicality and extreme usefulness of purchasing a car brings about a lot of happiness; then again the pressure from purchasing a home and the sacrifices made in retaining it make it somewhat impractical. Author Goshgarian also quotes author Rindfleisch saying “ we operate with a duality” when it comes to material, this suggests we know that material doesn’t equal happiness however we sometimes are disillusioned by what material goods can actually bring to
To have the ability to do any of these tasks and many more, the consumer must have creditworthiness. Even if the consumer does not plan to use credit for the more popular scenarios, it is important to know that credit is also linked to other areas such as insurance rates and job applications. If the consumer has bad credit, a company may not look favorably on this and assume the individual is irresponsible behind the wheel of a car or may have a poor record of attendance at work. From these examples, it is apparent that credit is used to determine if a person is responsible and
