Karl Marx was born May 5th 1818 in Germany. The economic ideas of Karl Marx were specifically that he did not believe in people having great ideas to change the economy but rather that all people needed was to be able to live a decent life, meaning that they had food to eat and a home.

The document of Madison’s federalist 39 was created about the same time as the American people won the revolutionary war (pollack 2013). Madison did not believe that a Bill of Rights was necessary, he wrote one to calm the fears of the people that believed the federal government was too powerful (Krutz 2016).” Madison’s Federalist number 39 was about the government getting all their powers from the people and run by people as well. These people who serve are also appointed by the people as well. what Madison is talking about with this form is from my understanding is that the people should be the ones with the power, so they don’t go back to how it was before winning the revolutionary war. I would have to say that I agree with Madison’s
In order to pay such debts back, Hamilton created the federal bank and convinced the Congress to issue federal bonds.

“When the British Parliament turned to its next attempt to tax the colonies, this time by a set of taxes which it hoped would not excite as much opposition, the colonial leaders organized boycotts” (A People’s History of the United States, 1492-Present 62) is an example of how the colonies disobeyed England.

He supported civil disobedience with England, but not with the US because he felt that people had a voice in their government unlike the people who had a
Catholic social doctrine states that “The economy must serve people, not the other way around” (“Seven Teachings”). Through the ideas of “survival of the fittest”, a free-enterprise system, and unregulated capitalism, Social Darwinists do not support that belief. They believe that the dignity of a person comes from the success they obtain in the workplace. However Catholics stress that dignity of a human person cannot be given or taken away, it is something all humans are inherently born with. Supporting Social Darwinism supports the separation of God’s people, who are called to unity and solidarity, and that separation will not aid the development of a just society, but rather weaken the moral standard of the world’s economy.

The source is in favour of a capitalist economic system. A supporter of this type of economic system would be Adam Smith (introduced the idea of capitalism). Adam Smith was considered a classical liberalist just like the source, he wanted basic rights for individuals and democracy but he did not want governments to intervene in the economy.

The Supreme Court said no to the actions of the state by finding that the Federal Government held implied powers under the Constitution, it exercised by creating federal banks. Chief Justice Marshall wrote the Court’s opinion, referring to the political concept of the social contract to build the power of the Federal Government as given by the Constitution. Marshall saw that the Constitution couldn’t really address all of the certain ways in which the Government would fulfill the jobs to which it was generally obligated, but rather implied the functions which the government might take on to
