History 121 Jay Wendelberger February 12, 2008 Assimilation of Immigrants I think these people can become full American citizens. There are couple reasons why I believe these people can assimilate to full American citizens. First of all, these people came to America to have a better life and to prosper. Most of these immigrants want to start a new life and forget about their past. Secondly, these people were persecuted in their homelands, so their way of life in America is way better than the life they had in Europe or wherever else they came from.
If we do not buy imported goods then they will not buy ours and without export revenue and foreign investments we would not be able to function financially. When exports increase so does the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). GDP is the dollar amount of all goods and services produced within the United States. When the GDP is high it signifies that our economy is healthy and stable. When companies can produce more due to demand they are able to hire more workers, which can lower the unemployment rate.
There is a clear division line separating the north and south which displays the difference in development level of nations. The north is predominantly more developed than the south, with massively wealthy nations like the America; consequently there is less poverty in the north and people generally have a higher standard of living. In comparison, the south is dominated by poor countries which have low levels of development. Most of the people in the south have a lower standard of living due to high poverty rates; however there are some exceptions to this trend like Australia. Evidently there is an unequal relationship between the north and south, which could be mainly due to the fact many of the southern countries were owned by the north in the past.
In particular, they want to be respected, powerful, viewed as successful and live and surround themselves in an elite social class. Therefore, the more material possessions they acquire, the more prestigious they feel or as some say: “I have made it”. Such as in the 17 century, a person’s obesity was a sign of their prosperity. However, as we know today, those views hold some opposition. According to an article in Slate On, the poor and low income people in our society are more overweight than the wealthy.
That means the other 88 percent of beneficiaries “include a wide cross section of families with children, couples, and others” (Furman, 2012, p. 1). The value of the minimum wage adjusted to inflation is also about 20 percent less than it was when Ronald Reagan first became president in 1981 (Furman, 2012). Currently, 19 million people are working for less than $10.10 an hour, while nearly 50 million are living below the poverty line (Furman, 2012). The minimum wage isn’t properly adjusted to inflation, therefore putting much more of a financial burden on minimum-wage working citizens. With rent averaging roughly $1,230 a month, you wonder how people could possibly live working for the current federal minimum wage (Glink,
It is said that in areas were ethanol is produced people will save up to 20-30 percent each gallon. But it become increasingly expensive in areas away from were ethanol is produced, for example on the coasts. It is expected that on the west cost people will pay 20% more for a gallon of ethanol than gasoline. Because this issue has arisen relatively recently, prices for natural gas have gone up at a faster rate than was
dollar relative to other currencies also affect employment levels. According to Economist Christina Romer wrote in May 2011: "A weaker dollar means that our goods are cheaper relative to foreign goods. That stimulates our exports and reduces our imports. Higher net exports raise domestic production and employment. Foreign goods are more expensive, but more Americans are working.
They can compare their cash flow forecast with the actual situation shown in the statement. If you look back at their forecast on page 71, you will see the received more cash inflows in December than they expected - £16,700 rather than £16,300. Their cash outflows were just a little higher (mainly due to spending more on wages than forecast). As a result, their cash outflows for the month were only £20 higher than their inflows. Consequences and solutions to cash flow problems Factor | Why It Causes a Cash Flow Problem | Low profits or (worse) losses | There is a direct link between low profits or losses and cash flow problems.
We are an immigrant nation, immigrants are humans just as we are here in this nation; many of us forget this country was built and begin populating by immigrants looking for a better life. By immigrating it’s an opportunity to make their dream come true because they’re able to fulfill their dreams and go along with their work ethic that they have. I couldn’t see this country without immigrants. Most people support immigration because of what they have seen done in the past until now by immigrants. Some of the brightest ever have moved here for our freedom and opportunities.
In the book Outsourcing America: Wages in developing countries such as India and China are 10 to 20% of comparable U.S. workers, and there is a nearly endless supply of educated underemployed workers in those countries. And it is much cheaper to live in the developing countries. For example, the cost of living in India or China is one-fifth that of the United States. (Hira
