Dick Smith’s Population Puzzle Opportunity Cost Opportunity cost is the benefit that could have been gained from an alternative use of the same resource. In Dick Smith’s Population Puzzle, the main opportunity cost addressed is: that allowing immigrants into Australia will put pressure on resources, hence jeopardizing a sustainable Australia. From the transcript, it can be interpreted that farmers are being paid large amounts of money to plough producing crops back into the ground. At the same time, the same Government is planning on increasing Australia’s population by 60%. Consequently, the economic interdependence for food would be reliant on governments globally.
Most politicians and people look up to Theodore Roosevelt, and see him as a positive role model and a man who changed America for the better. All of the actions and decisions were made in a time period where things were much different than they are today. During this time the domestic economy mainly consisted of super corporations called trusts. These trusts controlled any raw material , food, metals sugar, and tobacco, etc by holding a monopoly, almost like “a huge Microsoft in every field” . On top of this, vertical integration put all the money and power into the hands of a few people that controlled whole industries and there was no attempt to regulate or try to monitor the system (Vries, 03 25 2003).
In my opinion, I believe that Australia did develop into an independent nation in the world during 1900-1945. Through the likes of federal policies in 1900-1914, WW1, 1920-1930’s and WW2 Australia increasingly became a more independent country. At the start of Australia’s birth; the federal government had placed many laws that would separate Australia from the world in terms of how they treated the working class. We placed many laws like the eight-hour day and basic wage. These laws protected the working class and we were the leaders throughout the world to place these laws in place.
While the white men were fighting, the slaves had to continue laboring on farms or supporting the South’s war efforts. The typical Southern slave owner had maybe one or two slaves, and the typical white Southern male owned none. The men of the slave states were either, artisans, mechanics, or more frequently, a small farmer. This reality is very important in understanding why white Southerners went to war to defend slavery in 1861. The fear of slave rebellion distracted both the Southern slaveholder and the Northern invader.
There was a people’s party known as the Populists that had sprung up sometime in the 1880’s however never really gained a following. This economic crisis allowed for this party to gain power because with the rich and elite all using the two main parties to their advantage the working force needed their own party to combat their workplace
Many years ago in the 1800s, there were a few significant companies known as “trusts.” The most famous of the trusts were U.S. Steel and Standard Oil. They monopolized the supply of their product and price. During this era, they were controlling the entire industry with the supply of steel and oil. With one company monopolizing the entire industry, there was no competition, the smaller business and people had no other options. The companies’ new consumers had no other options and the prices went sky high.
9. The Wall Street Journal did not publish the evidence by Markopolos because then people would take it out on them because they did not do the investigation and its because of them they lost there money. 10. I feel that the SEC did not do their job because they should have at least see these transactions and they should have caught him before everyone lost their money. Just because Madoff had good connections with the SEC they still have done some sort of an investigation and at least say they did not see anything than just ignore it because now people are mad at the
Therefore even though there were variances between the colonies (especially NSW) over free trade this idea and more notably the economic difficulties of the 1890’s, inclined that a federation might better organize commercial development. As well as these arguments that went for a Federal Government to bring together all the colonies in Australia there were also many arguments that went against this idea. The idea of federation brought fears to the smaller colonies, for if it continued and there was a constitution the larger colonies might dominate the rest such as NSW and Victoria. Queensland had only just become independent of NSW 11 years and South Australia was less than 50 years old. This was one reason that went against federation being brought around.
