But not only does Mr. Gekko, himself, go foraging for tips and insights, he manipulates his underlings to do it for him and pressures them to reveal any information they might have previously withheld. With the deontological perspective, greed for insight is morally incorrect because it’s only for self-interest and people are affected negatively. In the beginning of the movie, Bud Fox finally lands his chance to talk with his idol, Gordon Gekko. During the encounter, Bud Fox reveals confidential information concerning his dad and Blue-Stars Airline. From that moment on, Gekko grew interested in what Bud Fox had to
An initial reading of “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair might appear to be literary fiction, further analysis suggest that it is primarily a work of propaganda. Sinclair uses the protagonist of the story, Jurgis Rudkus to show the difficulties the family went through. In “The Jungle” immigrants were not treated right and Sinclair exposes the human flaws of people to show how the lower class society was mistreated. The family experiences this when “Ona was sexually harassed” (chapter 15) by an upper class, puppet to the capitalist society, Conner. This disgusting man took advantage of a poor immigrant girl.
The Man Who Would Be King is a depiction of Kipling’s experience with the British Empire when he was growing up in India.

The entire novella is a metaphor which compares Dravot and Carnehan’s actions to that of the British empire. In the beginning of the story, Kipling meets Carnehan and soon realizes that he is a conman and a very rude one at that.

Introduction Chapter 1 Aravind Adiga who was born on 23 October 1974 is an Indian-Australian writer and journalist. His debut novel, The White Tiger, won the 2008 Man Booker Prize. The novel studies the contrast between India's rise as a modern global economy and the lead character, Balram, who comes from crushing rural poverty. The novel provides a darkly humorous perspective of India’s class struggle in a globalized world as told through a retrospective narration from Balram Halwai, a village boy. In detailing Balram's journey first to Delhi, where he works as a chauffeur to a rich landlord, and then to Bangalore, the place to which he flees after killing his master and stealing his money, the novel examines issues of religion, caste, loyalty,

The best part about this film is that the story line is kept as closely as possible to the original story. One of the most priceless scenes of the film is where the murderer’s mother tells his politician father, ‘kuch bhi karo, mere Manu ko kuch nahin hona chahiye’. It speaks volumes about the murderer’s upbringing. This film makes you feel frustrated, enraged, frenzy and at the same time melancholic and desolated at the Indian justice administration system. But at the end it also leaves you with a little bit of hope that somewhere down the line the ordinary man can and must make a difference in this crooked country.
CHAPTER 4 The White Tiger (2008) is the debut novel of Aravinda Adiga who won the prestigious Man Booker Prize. The White Tiger takes the form of a series of letters to Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier, from Balram Halwai, the Bangalore businessman who is the self-styled “White Tiger” of the title.Bangalore is the Silicon Valley of the subcontinent, and on the eve of a state visit by Jiabao, our entrepreneur Halwai wishes to impart something of the new India to the Chinese premier. I think Aravind Adiga by this novel wants to give the message that poverty creates the monster, and the protagonist Balram Halwai is the representative figure of such type of monster. Aravind Adiga seems to depict the corruption and entrepreneurship. According to me poverty and corruption is the theme of the Novel Aravind Adiga, he wanted India to get free from poverty and corruption.
