Sebastian Ocampo The 2012 Presidential Debate The current presidential debate was a long and arduous battle between President Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney. This seldom event occurred at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. The moderator of this event was Jim Lehrer executive editor of the PBS News Hour. There were a few moral issues discussed in the duration of the debate that most Catholics would concern for the benefits of the US economy. The economic tone of the US had set the overall tone on the 90-minute discussion.
I will be focusing on just a few key areas that have been struck due to the recession for President Obama and the Great Depression for President Roosevelt and how each man either fixed the problem or is attempting to. Here is just a short list of issues: unemployment rate, financial institutions and the stock market. Just like President Roosevelt, President Obama hit the ground running with his uncanny ability to act upon the economic crisis that was yet again effecting the American people. Obama scored major points with the people since within his first hundred days in office he was able to get congress a much needed stimulus package for their approval that would take care of the financial crisis the American people were facing with major businesses and financial institutions declining at a very fast pace. However, Roosevelt was facing a much worse scenario with an unemployment rate of nearly 25% after the stock market crash of 1929.
I seems that the most heavily weighted subject of the auto bailouts is the concern about the enormous numbers of jobs that would be lost if a bailout is not approved. The Nation talks in depth about the dire need of passing a bailout because of job losses, estimating the potential number of those to be unemployed if it is not passed at three million (20). The Pew Research Center actually lays out in detailed numbers the weight that the auto industry carries for employment. This publication states that 1 in 10 jobs rely on the auto industry, equating to 2.3 million Americans, or roughly 2% of the workforce. Although both publications indicate the large number of jobs to potentially be lost, The Pew Research Center article provides much greater clarity of the impact.
Barack Obama became the United States of America’s first African American president in 2009. He delivered his acceptance speech for the Democratic Party’s ticket in August of 2008 in Colorado after a close primary campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton. His audience of 80,000 was Democratic supporters looking forward to his vision of hope and change for the United States, which had seen a severe downturn in the economy along with the never-ending war in the Middle East. His rhetorical intention was to inspire and lead the audience toward a new America that was based on the Democratic ideology of supporting the majority of the population not just the wealthiest people and corporations’ best interests. Barack Obama included his background as a young boy of middle class parents and eventually a single mother.
How difficult a challenge did Welch face in 1981. How effectively did he take charge? According to the Harvard business case “GE's Two Decade Transformation Case Analysis”, Jack Welch assumed as CEO of General Electric year of 1981, he had the task of stimulating the competiveness and prolific capability of the corporation.

“Man” Of The House After the recession in 2008, the economy faced extremely high unemployment. This caused Hanna Rosin to write the article “The End of Men.” In her article, rhetor Hanna Rosin, writer for The Atlantic, Slate and The New Yorker, expresses the many reasons as to why women surprisingly became the higher employed gender in our society. Rosin claims that economic changes in the past few years caused employment to shift towards women because the demand for labor that requires male traits such as physical strength and stamina are not nearly as important as jobs that require female traits such as communication and thinking. Rosin believes that males are unable to adapt to the economic changes, resulting in female labor being more popular than it has ever been. Rosin wrote this article for educated men and women to inform them of the economic shift causing higher unemployment for men.

The United States is currently digging its way out of the worst recession in recent history. Government spending and deficits have reached staggering highs while the current tax system has had both sides of the isle up in arms, and calling for reform. The US needs a means of generating enough revenue to begin to truly tackle its mounting deficit, while at the same time encouraging growth in the private sector and catering to a public still hurting from the economic downturn. The solution may lie within the value added tax. The value added tax or VAT is a consumption based tax that is widely used throughout many industrialized nations.
