Likewise, this is the case when David Brooks defines our current economic standing. “Is Our Country as Good as Our Athletes?” By David Brooks provides why our economy is just as dominant compared to our athletes. The persuasive article educates the American people when Brooks uses examples of logos, rhetorical question, and tone to explain how our economy is thriving similarly to our Olympic athletes who are bringing home the gold.
These children have no more time for themselves or with their families. Going along with the children’s families, the parents of these young athletes are spending large amounts of money to make their kid the best and go onto the professional league. The families of these children not only spend hundreds of dollars, but also are one of the top reasons youth sports have become so intense. They have been more involved and effect the child’s performance. These sports programs are causing mental and physical damage for these developing kids and the intensity of parents and coached have made it even more overwhelming.
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

Why collegiate athletes should get paid. Collegiate athletes should get paid. This has been a problem many people are bringing up for discussion. Some do not believe collegiate athletes should get paid because it takes away from the “purity” of the sport or because it wouldn’t be quite “fair” and we would then have to pay high school athletes. What a lot of people do not realize is that a college sport is just the same a pro sport but with students.
The NCAA is understandably satisfied with the continuous growth of its’ revenue each year, yet the problem they face of having people accept that “student-athletes” are just amateurs is growing as well. “More money, more problems” by The Notorious B.I.G is seemingly fitting in this exact situation. Amateurism took its role in the early 1900s when the NCAA was formed to protect student-athletes from the potentially dangerous and exploitive athletic practices during that time in history (NCAA, 1906).

The third reason why college athletes should get paid is because they make a ton of money for the college because if they perform on the court they will get more people to attend their games which makes the school more money. “Football programs generate so much money for the university.” “Alumni are so much more generous during years when sports teams win.” These quotes just show that when the athletes perform on the field or court they really are generating more money for their college. Some people believe that college athletes should not get paid. College athletes go to college to learn not to get paid. “Using the inability to distribute the funds equally as an impediment is an excuse.” “Of the $174 million distributed from 5 bowl games, 83.4% went to six conferences.” These quotes show that there is really no excuse for not paying college athletes but that people just want to sit back and complain about how life is not

People know that doctors and firefighters save lives, while athletes play a game to make money.
The businesses took advantage of their workers by extending work hours but also leaving their wages the same. They were trying to work them for every penny they could not caring who they were hurting in the process. The people also disfavored the new political system they did not agree with politicians no longer listening to the opinions of the people, they felt that they were being silenced and they could do nothing about it. The corporations may have lowered the costs of a few accommodations but it was outweighed by the unfairness the people had to deal with. The growing of large businesses in size, number, and influenced changed the United States severely.
The debate of compensating student-athletes for their time, skill, and revenue brought in, has been growing in discussion over the recent years. College athletes have consistently brought in large quantities of profits for their schools and the NCAA and they don’t see a penny of that money.

Title IX has had a huge effect on public school education. In fact the impact is so great I could not list them all. For the sake of time I will list the biggest one and that is the impact on women’s athletics. In 1971 only 15% of the athletes in college were women. In 2012 that number is 43%.
Some of the athletes get hurt and they are out for the year because they can 't pay for the injury, but if they get paid it will help them pay for their injuries.
