However, I do not think that lobbyist should provide favors to politicians, so that the politicians will vote on a bill in the lobbyist’s favor even though lobbyists go after those politicians that have no position on an issue. I just think that it is immoral and should be considered cheating because the REAL job of the lobbyist should be to persuade the politician with their presentation of ideas, not by money. Not only this, lobbyists should go after the politicians, with ideas and
However, businesses that make their fortunes using government-sponsored rail lines seem to be disinterested in paying for the lines they use. Perhaps the best way to cut down on accidents on rail lines is to treat them as a private utility. Local governments and businesses could come together to decide whether it’s worth spending corporate money to have a rail line or not, and average taxpayers could stop funding an outdated mode of transportation. At this point, investment in rail is just a bad investment. As trucks become more reliable, safer, and self-driving, trains will continue to be a less sensible investment, but governments still pour billions into rail lines that barely see use.
Ever since the Great Depression, the minimum wage has been in effect — in order to reduce poverty and solidify that employees are paid a reasonable sum. Although the minimum wage can be beneficial and advantageous for individuals and to our economy as a whole, it can also be detrimental to our nation’s finances. The federal government should not allow this to pass, but rather they should increase the citizens’ knowledge of the pernicious consequences and complications that will arise with a higher minimum wage, especially one as high as $15 per hour. Some of the resulting conflicts that will occur if this possible raise in the federal minimum wage takes effect are: job loss, business failure, higher consumer prices, and a lower demand for uneducated employees. Although it may appear as if increasing the federal minimum wage will help to lift families out of poverty, in
While the political risk is companies gauging whether the government that is in place would be of benefit to them and they could do business in that country. The political risk would measure if the government would be sustained for a long period of time. Including if the government would become viol ant would maybe attempt to take over their business as well as change policy that may not be in the best interest of the

Politics and Leadership have a lot of effect on us as a country. We all have different opinions. Some people feel like their vote doesn’t matter, others show up to the polls to demonstrate their ideals, their are those who believe that one person can’t control the outcomes of ordinary life, and some may think new leaders bring new opportunities or challenges for an average person. In all reality anything can cause a change rather you vote or not , not voting can cause things that is unwanted to happen. The best solution is to =show up to the polls in every election to demonstrate their ideals.
The implication is that overall productivity of the team declines which will cause a turn down in productivity and therefore the profit margins will suffer (Blinder, 2011). Consequently, the use of employee ownership schemes has been considered as a possible solution to this free rider problem. This is because ownership schemes help in creating a culture of teamwork that consequently overrides the free-rider
When people know that they have a choice to help a good company and still receive the goods that they want, they will buy from that good company. It would start a vicious cycle. More and more people will buy from the humane industries, giving them more money. When more people buy from the good companies, that means that less people will buy from the bad companies, and those companies will lose money. Ultimately, either the inhumane industries will go out of business or cave in to the demands of the people.
Analysis Paper 4 This week’s readings presented analysis, evaluations, and critiques of retrospective voting, an alternative theory of democracy which suggests that voters can “exert control over their leaders by assessing the performance of incumbent officials, rewarding success and punishing failure” (Achen and Bartels, 91). Achen and Bartels argue against the theory of retrospective accountability (voting), supported by some scholars because it fundamentally underestimates the limitations of voters to accurately assess changes in their own welfare and the limitations of democratic accountability (145). However, Achen and Bartels do not suggest that the theory should be dismissed entirely. This paper will analyze the critiques presented
By eliminating unnecessary cost hopefully will increase funding so that layoffs will not be my only option. Other options that I would consider is cutting hours during the slow hours of the day. Instead of denying services to a community or a group of people that usually depends on our services I may cut back on certain services that we normally offer. As this is very serious I believe the community would be happier that we stayed open and offered less over closing down several sites. Even after cutting back and there was still a need to close down a site I would determine which one of the sites has the most and least impact on the community and close the one that impacts the community the least.
Under this type of government one groups interests are always expressed, and consequently, there is always a perpetual loser. This is not what Madison had in mind when he wrote Federalist 10, instead he argues that as long as there are multiple factions competing, the control, and therefore interests of the government should be moderate, as well as changing. He goes into more depth, arguing that a representative form of government is ideal, due to the representative’s ability to effectively represent smaller populations, such as states. He continues to explain that factitious leaders might be able to “kindle a flame”, but would be unable to progress their movement throughout the states due to a series of checks and balances. He describes to the reader that each branch of the government would have some control over the other, balancing out the governmental power, thus keeping the effects of factions to a minimum.
These extremist candidates help to discourage education of the intricacies of individual issues because voters are forced into accepting how the party views the issue, due to either voting due to the candidate 's party affiliation, or being forced into choosing the extremist that comes closest to their own personal beliefs. Finally, by limiting voting to two extremist choices allows the private entities that are the republican and democratic parties to control American politics based on their party views and not the views of the American
A few common arguments are that immigrants steal the jobs from Americans, they don’t pay taxes, and they are more costly to our states than they contribute. We have all heard these claims at least once before. On the other side of the spectrum, we have some experts who say the immigrants contribute to our GDP and make Americans richer. Those
Another reason it is important that we partake in elections is because it allows people to decide who they want in their government and who decides their country, city, or state’s issues. One person in every state not voting could affect the outcome of an election and if you don 't vote you might not get the outcome you were hoping for. This is another reason people should join in on elections.
