For the progressives, the reason why they might get involved in society is to create or enforce social and economic equality and to push for social modernity. For progressives, they view in part the human nature of Locke, Rousseau and Marx. Marx is mentioned, since progressives want a bigger government to enforce social and economic equality for all. For Locke and Rousseau they both have an optimistic view of human nature, Rousseau believes humans can have unlimited improvement and for Locke government can help humans by enforcing laws to protect them and their property. Progressives believe like Locke that the sole purpose of government is to protect the rights of its citizens.
The focus is on increasing the national income of a country and the trade-offs between environmental protection and accumulation of wealth and maintain inter-generational equity are tackled with market prices that is used as a corrective mechanism for social, distributional and environmental concerns. This growth model is a means to a larger end that is- human development and how people can aspire to what they wish to be exercising their real freedoms. This model puts people before the market economy and revolves around the development of the individual to its full potential. According to Dre`ze and Sen, “In recent years, development economics has been also taking a more inclusive view of the nature of economic development. One way of seeing development is in terms of the expansion of the real freedoms that the citizens enjoy to pursue the objectives they have reason to value, and in this sense the expansion of human capability can be, broadly, seen as the central feature of the process of development ” (Dre`ze & Sen,

To understand this theory, we first have to understand what cultural goals and the institutionalized means of achieving them mean. In the modern society, the common cultural goal is to be ecnomically successful. And by successful, we mean attaining wealth that will enable us to afford at least the basic neccessities that we need to go about living our daily lives, like food and shelter. The more successful a person is, the more wealth he attains and hence, he is able to afford more than just neccessities. To put it simply, the more wealth a person has, and then he is considered to be economically successful.
Enforcing specific labour standards can help this economic stability through protecting workers, avoiding strikes, and paying the people more money. In turn, workers will not only better their quality of life, but will also boost their country’s economy through spending. As suggested by the International Labour Organization, “…international labour standards are an essential component in the international framework for ensuring that the growth of the global economy provides benefits to all” (“Introduction to International Labour Standards.”). International labour standards will provide a more equal distribution of wealth as well as indirectly boost the global economy through stabilizing individual economies. In conclusion, regulatory labour laws will not inhibit the growth and development of the global economy, despite the claims made by companies presented in Kernaghan’s video.
The American Dream is Alive The American dream is part of the American psyche and in order to keep it alive, there is need to save and plan for the future which is only possible through savings and enacting of policies which will see to it that there is sustainability in economic growth but it is also important to interrogate some of the factors that affect its viability. Is it a state of the mind and something that is being used to cloud the actual failings of the state in providing a conducive environment for citizens to prosper? One thing that has always been ignored is the element of non-economic components that might lead to a person not making it into the middle class (Shapiro). It is assumed that having ‘drive and ambition’ are enough
And it is key to economy because only in a stable environment can the economy achieves sustained growth. Moreover, it points out a goal for the whole society to achieve, which gives a direction of the future society. Therefore, the development will be on purpose and more
Economic growth may be achieved when economies of scale is realized; this is usually attained through specialization. Specialization enables human capital to be concentrated on the task in which people have developed special skills. Hence through such efficiency time and money could be saved while production levels increase. With specialisation and economies of scale, production is bound to be on the rise. Cassen et al.
