Like I said earlier America is a corporate country based upon cash. America is a superpower both military and politically.in the future I see America’s military being stronger than ever. It will have the power to do anything. Were pioneers in democracy and led on other countries to be democratic which in all cases is good. But America in my sense of the future since it already is a world power would be dangerous.
Nearly everything is outsourced from this country, we are 100 percent dependent on other countries to produce our items. Sure, we can blame China, we can blame the 3rd world, but the real problem is the corporations. It is big corporations that do not care about where the product is coming from but about maximizing profits as much as possible. Even companies that produce quality products are outsourcing to save money because it appeals to the shareholders, which all makes sense to a business person. There are some pros to globalization as Mike Collins states that, "supporters of globalization argue that it has the potential to make this world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated problems like unemployment and poverty."
Evan Osnos suggests that although Chinese people consider themselves more cautious than Americans, psychologically they are willing to take higher risks with their investments. Moreover, while in the most developing countries level of education of parents determine the income of children, in China connections of parents are the most decisive factor which impedes social mobility in the country. • Importance and contribution of the book to general literature. In his book Age of Ambition Evan Osnos looked at today’s China from a very different prospective. Through the investigation of life
At the beginning of the First Millennium The Romans and the people of the Han both extensively used technology to better themselves and eventually all of humanity. The Han empire in China placed more value on technology and technological enhancements then the Roman Empire did, proven by the constant concern of the Han dynasty over the indifference and almost disregard of the Romans. The Han were more accepting and open to technological advancements because they valued the farmers, and common people who they believed helped benefit society however, the Roman were only concerned with the upper class due to their dividing and conflicting social classes of Particans and Plebeians therefore their view of technology was that it was considered unimportant.
Michael Moore once said, “Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way too - if we just work hard enough.” Had Horatio Alger met Michael Moore, he would have agreed with his sentiments about greed being a dangerous force in a capitalist society. He also would have supported the fact that Americans are hard working, but Alger, in his book Ragged Dick, paints a more optimistic view of the “respectable core” of hard working magnanimous people who made his 1860’s society work. In Alger’s depiction, holding on to respectability and disavowing greed, in addition to hard
This is flawed because in developed countries like the U.S., the government can spend however much monet they want in practicality. Trillions of dollars of debt doesn't stop America from dumping more trillions of dollars into unecessary places like the milatary, specifically in this case fighter jets. "The F-35 project has been one of the most expensive military projects in history, and will cost upwards of $1.45 trillion by the time it’s over" (Wolff-Mann, 7 Amazing Things, Time.com). U.S. military spending dwarfs the budget of the #2 country – China. For every dollar China spends on its military, the U.S. spends $2.77 (www.nationalpriorities.org).
Emiliano Segura America has not always been the intrusive neighbor whose only goal is to spread the message of democracy and capitalism. In fact, America—for most of its early lifetime—played their role in the world as an isolated island far away from Europe’s reach: avoiding conflict at all costs. It was mostly a country of production, gaining most of their wealth from manufacturing and trading goods. Much like China, Americans were the producers of the 19th century. Moreover, America practiced what is known as isolationism—especially during the time of war; but as the U.S. grew in the 20th century, so did there want to expand their messages of liberty, economy, and government; which it did effectively through the means of war.
America had financial strength and they wanted to use it make peace with other countries. Both these speeches are conservative in regards to less government involvement in businesses, having higher tariffs, and lower taxes. Each of these speeches makes some kind of connection to these three points. The 1920’s were a time where there was lots of conservatism in the white house. It was a time where presidents wanted to use business to boost the economy as much as they could.
United States has always had a good government structural system and lead other countries in the world to do the same. Although we did have a point in time were slavery was a huge economic profit, it was not right. Just as Tocqueville stated “Thus it is in the United States that the prejudice which repels the Negroes seems to increase in proportion as they are emancipated, and inequality is sanctioned by the manners while it is effaced from the laws of the country. But if the relative position of the two races that inhabit the United States is such as I have described, why have the Americans abolished slavery in the North of the Union, why do they maintain it in the South, and why do they aggravate its hardships? The answer is easily given.
The American Dream is an idea that citizen has an equal opportunity to achieve success through determination and hard work. However, that ideal has given Americans a sense of false hope. America is one of the richest nations with having a high inequality than other developed nation. Inequality exists in income, wealth, power and education. Individuals who are socially poor in America will most likely stay in that cycle throughout their lifetime.
