She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.

In the article, What is a life worth, by Amanda Ripley, a tragedy that took place on 9/11 makes the government establish the amount of money a loss ' life is worth. Money isn 't going to bring back a loved one, but it does seem unconstitutional to others that one others loss is worth more than theirs. Victims families argue about how the amount of money given is not enough for their pain and suffering as "Others can 't help seeing the award as a callous measure of their loved ones value". Money was the only thing the government had to offer but they didn 't do it in the correct way. I don 't believe that a life should have a dollar value, since
The use of this rhetorical device (logos) helped Johnson force the mother to admit there was no reason why he should write the letter. He states “You ask me to solicit a great man, to whom I never spoke of, for a young person whom I never seen”. Johnson tone shifts and becomes harsher allowing room for the mother to think about her faults. Johnson feels that the evident faith the mother has for her son is not enough for him to recommend her son into the university. He then goes on to simply tell her that there is no accurate reason why her son deserves this position.
and if poverty was nonexistent things would have been different for them. In the story Lamar Loper’s First Case the moral of the story was that money can make all the difference in someone’s life.

Lamar could not believe people like this existed in the world and the only reason Simmie continued to do what he did was because his wife and son did not have the money to just up and leave.

From this it follows that Lady Russell is very protective of Anne and naturally only wants what is best for her in order to ensure that she has a good future. However, Lady Russell’s goodwill/favour becomes a danger to Anne’s happy ending since the best for Anne is actually what Lady Russell personally considers to be best and this view is not necessarily in accord with what would make Anne happy as the two women do not share the same basic set of beliefs: Lady Russell is presented as a wealthy (cf. Persuasion 7), “benevolent” (Persuasion 12), “charitable” (ibid.) widow (cf. Persuasion 7) who is, however, flawed in so far as she “had prejudices on the side of ancestry; she had a value for rank and consequence” (Persuasion 13).
This would cause world tension with their alliances. Not a good combination, but luckily these plans were not followed through by the president. If the world tension became even more serious and the US would have gone into debt, the economy would basically have another Great Depression except depression isn’t really great. This means that since your alliances have now become your enemies and do not support you, you will not receive any imports or any goods and you are already in debt. This may cause people in the states to receive lower income, creating total havoc.
Father doesn 't like the war that is going on, he says that is it nonsense.
