1: Tariffs encourage Americans to buy U.S.-made products. (Points: 13) I find this position to be valid. Tariffs are basically taxes on imports, thus making imported goods more expensive to buy (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2008, p. 75). Protective tariffs are designed to raise the retail price of imported products so that domestic goods are more competitively priced (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2008, p. 76). Therefore, if when a consumer enters a store and sees similarly priced products, one imported and one made domestically, they can choose a US made product without feeling as if they are overpaying for the same product.

However the directors try to imply polices which do not always maximize the profits their objective is to satisfy the owners by getting some profit and growing the company in order to receive bigger market share to influence prices and quantity produced. I think that the managers should firstly try to grow the company and work for normal profit and maybe in long run obtain super normal profits. In short run they try to achieve lots of other objectives regardless profit
Sometimes it hurts to say I’m American because we don’t always take care of our own. In closing us as America should find a way to to get this sistiuiation handle as much as possible because we they are only hurt the people, and the society we all leave in. The middle class is heading towards the exit doors. America can help every one else but little old America. The only thing we can truly do for America is
It is true that corporations and consumers receive the benefits of cheap labor, but to facilitate stability, taxpayers must cover the infrastructural cost. Notwithstanding all the negative ramifications, illegal aliens do raise the general effectiveness of the U.S. economy by adding profitable contributions via taxes and hence diminishes marginal cost for total product production. Though this topic is important, there are more significant topics (i.e. automation in manufacturing or the growth in global trade) that will have more impact on the U.S.

The purpose of Philip Slater’s book The Pursuit of Loneliness is to “reach some understanding of the forces which are unraveling our society” for his readers (xxii). It is a common conception that America is the best country, an idea which is substantiated by economic figures. However, Americans are not happy. According to Slater, “all societies frustrate certain human needs and satiate others (because) humanity and any particular society’s idea of what humanity should be is never very exact” (2). In America, the gap between reality and perception is growing farther and farther apart, at human expense.
Also, when America itself has problems, we should be more focused on correcting our own country rather than helping others. Not many people realize the fact that the U.S. really isn’t doing as well as we should be. Putting money into operations such as “Operation Iraqi Freedom” because of the fact that we lost an incredible amount of money on something pretty pointless. Iraq is still terrible and will continue to be terrible. Spending money on improving other countries isn’t always going to have a positive impact.
