In concern of the movement, not everyone is happy and Wall Street embraces deregulation, undoing many of the rules put in place in the wake of the Great Depression to limit banks’ riskiest investments. The limits on interstate banking are gone; down came the wall separating commercial and investment banks. Wall Street did not respect people; they had only themselves in mind how they could become richer and the common people poorer. Their virtues are in question, Wall Street should have a professional code of ethics these are the roles that are supposed to govern the conduct of members of their given profession. Which Wall Street did not have in place or this would have never happen.
The legitimacy of the Occupy Melbourne protests. Living in the democratic society in which we do, protests are not uncommon. The recent spread of the Occupy movement, an international protest against corporate greed and power has dominated media headlines and gained attention worldwide. As of October 15, the movement has spread to around 951 cities and 82 countries, raising the question whether peaceful and purposeful protests are a key component of a democratic society? The Occupy Wallstreet movement which started on September 17 has ignited copy cat movements across the world.
Many people try to place blame on one person for the economic downfall. “Pill continue to show that Americans believe that President George W. Bush is to blame for the failing economy” (Patterson, 2011). There are many different reasons that people believe former President Bush should take the blame for the failing economy. He made many policy changes that caused people to question his authority. People were mad about the changes that he made and choose to blame him because he was the President.
Figure 3 shows the changes of global economic power over time. There are many reasons for the shifts in economic power such as the Second World War and the collapse of the British Empire. In 1913, Britain had a GDP almost twice the size of The USA's and made up 37% of the world's economy. By 1950, Britain's economic influence had decreased, its GDP now making up only 7% of the global economy. During this period The USA had become the world's largest economic power, making up 27% of the world's economy compared to the 19% in 1913.
They express alarm over the fact that capitalistic principles were violated by the bailout and that the federal government overstepped its bounds. They condemn the fact that irresponsible business practices were rewarded by a government handout. Finally, they further their argument by proposing that the natural flow of a free market economy, which relocates resources to where they will be most productive, was stemmed at the cost of the advancement of new, innovative businesses. These vastly different views have been well articulated and argued extensively by their proponents; however, this question still calls for a definitive answer: was the auto bailout in the best interest of America?

The fact that the new laws were passing allowing taxes to occur was frightening to Dickenson. He believes that they should do whatever it takes for America to pay the taxes. He thinks it is wrong that they are getting away with not paying. He believes sitting back and not doing anything is counter productive to the cause. Dickenson and Franklin are on opposite sides.
Mao criticised Khrushchev for his policies such as de-Stalinisation and his secret speech. He was also very critical of the policy of Peaceful Coexistence as he believed it was a way of being friendly with the United States (the enemy) and also Mao saw it abandoning millions of comrades struggling to free themselves of capitalist and imperialist oppression. This, therefore, made the USSR an ‘enemy’. How could two countries work together if they had such differing beliefs about how to run their countries? This problem had a big contribution to the split as they couldn’t agree on anything, and if they did, it was because their national interests were at risk.
They feared once these principles were established they could be extended to ‘soak the rich’ and even out the unfair distribution of wealth in Edwardian Britain. The land taxes were especially controversial, as they would not actually produce a great deal of tax revenue. The Lords denounced this proposal as a ‘class war’. The Lords believed it was their duty to restrain governments from making sweeping changes the electorate had not voted on. A final less important reason was that the Lords believed that it was the fault of the poor that they were destitute in the first place.
The protest was held in Zucotti Park, a part of New York City’s financial district (“Occupy Wall Street” 1). The protests were suggested by the Adbusters Media Foundation through their anti-consumerist magazine Adbusters (Kaste 1). Other US cities joined the movement in early October. Later in the month the movement spread to Europe, South America, the rest of North America, as well as a few Asian countries, making the movement a worldwide phenomenon. (“Occupy Wall Street” 1).
