The Gilded Age was the period in America between the 1870 through 1900. The term Gilded comes from a book written by Mark Twain. Twain thought of the word Gilded to be described as “glittering on the surface but often corrupt and economically unbalanced underneath”. No other words could be used better to describe the Gilded Age. The rich and the poor were well separated and the government was extremely corrupt. Political machine was being used for votes and workers had no rights. Despite all the negative effects that the Gilded Age brought to the United States, several positive things came out of it, such as, the growth of unions and developed fair railroads.

Executive order 9066 was prompted by President Franklin Roosevelt, on February 19th, 1942. This was an order to move over a 120,000 Japanese Americans into camps on the West coast. These Japanese were called Nisei, for America born, and Issei for immigrants.
The American Industrialization was in the late 1800’s making many things to improve the economy. The American Industrialization was caused by multiple factors, some of the factors included a growing population, a willing work force, high tariffs, among many more. These effects made people willing to work at lower wages so they can get jobs and buy American made goods. There were many outcomes of the Industrial Revolution, both positive, like improving people's lives, and negative effects, like exploitation of workers.
How did the Great Depression affect the people in America? Many people were poor and out of work because of this. It changed the way Americans lived.

When it comes to the thought-provoking question of what is limiting economic growth around the world there is no definite answer. Dean Kamen is the founder of SlingShot a water purifier Kamen in the documentary not only identified the problem he proposed a simple solution--clean drinking water. Resources contribute to economic growth and water is a resource unfortunately many countries don’t have access to clean drinking water. How can you have economic growth when half of the population is sick and not don’t have the ability to work because of the water contamination? Although, we are currently on macroeconomics this was shown on a micro level with the Flint water crisis.
Thought experiments can be useful scientific tools for attempting to understand situations that cannot realistically be tested for a variety of reasons. They have served as the basis for many scientific revolutions, from Galileo’s refutation of Aristotle by deducing that all objects must fall at the same rate to Einstein’s thought experiments which contributed to his formulation of the theory of relativity. While it may appear that such experiments use nothing more than cognition to arrive at facts about existence, they can in fact be decomposed into arguments. In this paper, I will demonstrate that although the Roman philosopher Lucretius’ thought experiment regarding the infinity of the universe appears at first to derive truths about

The two words deficit spending doesn’t sound like a positive meaning, when the two words are used together in a sentence. Deficit spending is when government’s purchases surpassed the original amount that they were obligated to spend. The government has a strong tendency to over spend on what they actually have in their bank accounts, because it helps balance the budget. When the government helps balance the budget by exceeding government spending, this in return aids the government in generating a budget deficit. Budget deficit and deficit spending are exactly the same, which is exceeding the amount that was previously put in place to spend. I know for sure there are repercussions for individuals and families who tend to live beyond their
Francis Aguilar (1967) is the first known reference to the origin of the PESTEL analysis. In his study known as Scanning the Business Environment, he studied the environmental factors that affect business environment and come up with the first acronym ‘ETPS’ which meant the Economic, Technical, Political and social factors (Aguilar, 1967). Later Arnold Brown (1967) focused on the study and came up with a new perspective towards the study of social-technical, economic, political, and ecological (STEPE) factors. In 1980, Porter among other authors scanned the business environment and came up with the current acronym PESTEL meaning political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental factors (FME, 2013). According to Collins (1997),

The Industrial Revolution was a significant time period in the shaping of today's society. Between 176 to 184, Britain industrialised by the introduction of mechanical production and manufacturing methods.

A rise in the capacity of an economy to produce goods and services, compared from one period of time to another.
