L). The banks were unable to do this because they barely had any money remaining which got the people very upset. This event helped create the Federal Reserve which gives money to those who did not get it because the bank ran out. The stock market for automobiles is doing very well because everyone is getting cars to get to places easier. But suddenly when everyone has a car the stock for automobiles goes down because people do not need a new car every month (Doc.
For example, building infrastructures, managing waste disposal, the use of natural resources and energy consumption cost a substantial amount of money. The destruction of landuses on the edge of city is also resulted from outer urban growth. Isolation of people and their increasing dependence on motor vehicle as well as pollution of environment also attribute to urban growth. In order to manage urban growth, different groups, individuals as well as government take responsibilities and actions. Urban consolidation is one of the most effective management, which promotes an increase in medium density and high density housing in suburbs that already contain infrastructures.
Accidents are on the rise, in fact in 2012 there were 3,921 people killed and 104,000 people injured in crashes involving large trucks. Fatalities in crashes involving large trucks increased by 4-percent in 2012 (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2012, DOT HS 811 868). This may not seem like a lot but it is. I think we can all remember times when we have been driving on the interstate and after seeing semi's on the road it makes you kind of nervous. These are monster trucks that are on the road carrying tons of weight and have the ability to cause a lot of destruction if they are not respected by their drivers.
Company Q references the high crime-rate areas of the two neighborhoods in which it served as the reason for closing those two stores. However, if you look further into the situation, it appears that Company Q mainly has only itself to blame for those store closings. Company Q cites that the two stores were losing money but gave no indication as to why they were losing money. Were they losing money because it took years to fulfill requests by customers for more health-conscience and organics products? Had those customers already found an alternative store that did provide the requested goods and in turn moved their business?
Wal-Mart is a large monopoly that is rampaging through the world economy in disastrous ways. Many small town family owned businesses lost everything when a Wal-Mart was built nearby. The Hunter family owned a family business for 43 years and they were doing well until Wal-Mart came to town, which caused them to go out of business. Don Hunter said “Wal-Mart forces people out of business [and] the value of [their] building decreased greatly” after the Wal-Mart was built near by (Wal-Mart). Another man stated that Wal-Mart “steals hometown quality in a business that they will never be able to get back” (Norman qtd.
Competency 310.2.1: Ethical Issues in Business Social Responsibility of Company Q Company Q has recently closed two stores in a high-crime rate area of the city because they were consistently losing money. The company has met its ethical responsibility to its stakeholders. However, by closing the two stores they failed in its attempt to provide social responsibility to the community in which the stores were located. A company's first priority is to make a profit for its stakeholders, but they do have a social responsibility to the community in which the company resides. Most owners of a chain stores are said to be only interested in a making a profit instead of supporting the local community.

Southern California tomato pickers made up primarily of legally immigrated workers were replaced by an influx of Mexican aliens who were more than willing to do the work for 65 cents less per hour (Immigrants and the Economy). After legal Americans lost their job, they were unable to easily find another job post 2008 due to the
This worsened the situation leading to less and less expenditures. Other causes of this worldwide crisis was the withdrawal of purchases; persons could not pay for installments and so goods were repossessed, unemployment levels remained very high for nearly 10 years and persons lost their jobs. In the 21st century, the Great Depression was commonly used as an example of how
You have to ask yourself is the government sincerely trying to make America a better place or look out for themselves, because it’s kind of hard to believe that America is benefiting from this law. It’s been a whole year since this law was implemented and there are still people dying of diseases, people are still unemployed, American’s are still polluting the nation, gas is steady going up and some Americans don’t pay taxes. Our economy is a mess with or without the illegal immigrants. We are just looking for outsiders to put it on. How could we better our nation by kicking out immigrants when we doing worst than they are in our own nation?
