Findings from assessments should always serve as a basis for decisions for actions or non-actions towards the program. This may cause program maintenance, improvement, alteration, or termination – either of this should ultimately render some positive benefits such as improve social conditions. (Rossi et al.,
During the industrial revolution, leaders of industrialism were brilliant, innovated, and ambitious men who rejuvenated the American economy decades after the Civil War. Andrew Carnegie is one of these industrial leaders who had a positive impact on society. He is considered to be a true “captain of industry” (Shi, "Robber Barons") , not just because of the businesses he developed, but because of his desire to better society for all people and not just for himself (Shi, "Robber Barons"). Carnegie believed that those of mass wealth should make a moral choice to make it their responsibility to share their wealth for the utilitarianism of society. 1.)
They set up the country to become, financially speaking, the largest beneficiary of World War I as the U.S. supplied much of the material used to fight the conflict. It transformed the United States from a debtor nation into the world’s largest lender in a few years. Looking back, the development of the U.S. after the Civil War was inevitable, but the course that it took to get there was not. The Captains of Industry revolutionized their chosen industry and created an economically strong nation that was capable of meeting the challenges of the next century. Were it not for these men, history would have turned out very different for the United
Reading through RIP, the Middle Class: 1946-2013, it became fairly obvious that the author, Edward McClelland, was presenting a thesis idea that consisted of promoting the middle class through examples of its prime time when middle class thrived. McClelland made the point clearly as he repeatedly provided examples ranging from the glory days of the assembly line industry that had provided high paying jobs for many people, to presidents who attempted to keep business within the United States to promote home grown jobs. He was especially focused on the point that the middle class was shrinking due to a large discrepancy between the wealthy and the rest of society as capitalism achieves its goal of padding the wealthiest and keeping the middle
Also, during this time, the economic industry was booming, advancement in technology, farming influence, politics, businesses, natural resources, transportation and railroads. By the end of 19th century, the middle-class Americans, were known as trusts. Trusts were known as people who controlled competition in the industry. In the late 19th century, the first major trust was John D. Rockefeller, who controlled a substantial part of the oil industry. Andrew Carnegie was another major trust, that controlled the steel industry and stated in the Gospel of Wealth (1889), that if a person consumed wealth, they’re supposed to live frugally and use the extra money to help people in need (Foner, Voices of Freedom, II, 28).
The various effects made during the late 19th century were the wage reduction, American Revolution, Civil War, nights of labor, World War I, New Deal, World War II. This sustained trade union organizations among the American workers. The operators of business firms— the management—seek to achieve the greatest profits possible by increasing production through the most efficient use of materials and labor. This is called the profit motive. The profit motive, in and of itself, is a good thing.
Philanthropy is the desire to promote the welfare of others. It is especially shown when individuals donate money to good causes. Philanthropy gradually improves farmer’s wages and factory workers working conditions. There were many great examples of this in the Gilded Age, one being, Andrew Carnegie. He was one of the most influential philanthropists in the Guiled Age.
Centuries ago, fathers were primarily the main income earner, teachers of moral values and religious education to their children. This was the norm in a society that was largely based on agriculture and males worked in their fields. However, industrialisation and urbanisation has revolutionised the work force. Consequently, fathers started working outside of the home and factories emerged in major cities which became the source of employment for most fathers. In a more recent history, the changing economy alongside the rise of feminism and the breakthrough of birth control, resulted in the swap over of gendered household duties.
The governments also need to integrate the industrial and agro-industrial sector and establish trans-border development basins. To enhance regional average yields, the governments need to invest in agriculture thereby ensuring food security in the region. To strengthen the processing capacity of the agricultural industry; government should provide subsidies inputs and fertilisers. Schiller, (2009 p334) confirms that the easiest kind of growth comes from increased use of our productive
For most people, success means obtaining a specific object such as building wealth, launching a million-dollar business or being in a perfect relationship. However, some of the most significant successes have been as a result of the worst failures (Hines, pg15). Success is dynamic, and it differs from individuals depending on their goals. The ability to achieve a particular goal is what defines people’s success which is a life-long process and not a one-time achievement. For many young people, starting their lives is a difficult situation that is faced with many challenges, for example, being born to neglectful parents.
