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.
Ronald Reagan is a leader by nature since he observed this kind of model by trying all the possibilities that innovated ways in changing and improving ways in which the organization and the state played.

The American Dream The American dream is an opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination and initiative, no matter who someone is or what their background may be. Some are born into wealth; where there are riches available from the start. Others have to achieve and work a bit harder for the success, but the American dream is available to everyone. The Great Gatsby was set in the 1920’s. In this time in history, people were generally materialistic and focused on getting the things they wanted instead of focusing on the things they already had.
The American Dream that is present in our lives today is fundamentally the same dream that people had in the 1920s, but many would argue that these dreams differ greatly. While both of these dreams have the similar ideals of becoming successful, the metric that they use to measure success differs greatly between the two. The idea of success that we have now is for one to be better off than one’s parents were, in each case slowly climbing up the financial ladder, while in the 1920s the idea of success included unimaginable wealth and fame. We can see how these definitions of success have been defined by the generations that these dreams belonged to. In the 1920s, it was possible for anyone to accumulate wealth, regardless of their social status.
In the story “The Upside of Income Inequality”, Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy effectively express’s the importance and need for income inequality in our society. Furthermore, Holly Ellyatt’s newspaper article Income Inequality: Is It Good For Everyone? serves to also point out that economic success and greater productivity is linked to “income inequality”. Although it may seem extremely unfair for someone to make up to two hundred and fifty times as much money as someone else, this notion of “income inequality” actually benefits the society as a whole by encouraging others to work much harder in life and better themselves and their education. For example, the increase of income inequality in the 1980’s greatly increased the education for both women and men and other races such as African Americans.
Kennedy uses repetition to stress how relevant "…their unusually good labor contract, their foreign competition and their increase in production and profits..." And how these things could be more efficient if the money was rerouted from the steel companies to the economy. John F. Kennedy also presents a counterargument in the second to last paragraph of the speech to show that he understands the other point of view. In this counterargument, Kennedy expresses that he understands that price and wage decisions are left up to the companies to decide but that American citizens expect companies to show them respect. The very last sentence in the speech states "In the last 24 hours we had their answer" in this sentence Kennedy refers to himself as part of the American society in one last attempt to further his
In ten years the livestock population decreased by 16 million. As a result of the Five-Year Plans the industrial output was 5.8 times larger than in 1913 in 1937, and the Soviet Union was the first European country with that volume of mass production. In 1940, there were 9,971,000 industrial workers, three times the amount in 1928 before the Five-Year Plans. This meant that the working class was

Finishing college is a great deal.
"Throughout the last 40 years, the American imprisonment rate has increased from a fairly stable rate of about 100 prisoners per 100,000 members of the population in the early 1970s to about 500 per 100,000 now". A family unit contains the father, mother and the children. The children may have
Elderly are one of the fastest growing fragment in the population. According to the study conducted by Dychtwald (1990), he stated that “One out of every nine individuals in United States of America is now age 65 or older”. In 1900, about 4 percent of the population, which are 3.1 million people were aged 65 years and older. And by 1990, the number of elderly had reached to 31.2 million which are about 12.6 percent of the population and this development is mostly expected to be continued until at least the year of 2040, where the elderly total quota of United States population could reach up to 22.6 percent (Clark &
