The second article is by Julie Irwin, “Ethical Consumerism isn’t Dead, It Just Needs Better Marketing.” This article is a complete opposite from the first however it still seems that these customers still have their own idea of what is right and what is wrong. The first article, “Black Friday: Consumerism Versus Civilization” is arguing about Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Andrew Leonard states, “ I am not opposed to vigorous sprees of retail spending. For the sake of the U.S. economy, I would love to see a robust Christmas shopping season and I plan to d o my part. I find the notion that we should “occupy Black Friday””(Andrew Leonard’s “Black Friday: Consumerism vs. Civilization”).
As this will be a very lucrative offer for consumers, who stay far from your outlets in their area or those who order a lot of things to eat at once (that will increase the amount they spent on the order). When around 95% of your orders get paid on the busiest days of the week regularly, you can afford to give away 10% of your orders for free for one Football Saturday this will not affect the sales of the restaurant as a whole. In fact, the consumers who got the orders for free would tell their friends and families about it. This will be a free mouth to mouth marketing. And when the friends and family try to buy from your restaurant they will be trying the luck on 3% to 10% of the
The number of commuters willing to pay exceeded that for not willing to pay just by 4 responders which was negligible for total count 1102. Hence, even UNLV decide to implement the fix compulsory transportation fee per semester, the cost should not be more than $30 per semester. Because, the number of commuters who were ready to pay the cost in range of $15 to $30 was 22%. However, the 8% commuters who were willing to pay more than $30 could be also included in this range. If possible, the cost range should be in between $10 to $15 per
What do you do when you run out of gas in your car? Will you stop using your car? or Will you go to the gas station and refill your tank? Natural gas that has been pumped up from fracking nearly fuels 40% of the U.S. energy consumption. Without fracking, the price of gas would have a drastic raise from $3.25 to $11 per gallon, so consumers would have to pay about $130 or more to refill their gas tank.
Argument Response to James Suroviecki’s “The Pay is Too Damn Low” In the New Yorker magazine on August 12, 2013, James Surovwiecki’s article “The Pay is Too Damn Low” was published. He lays out a good argument on the benefits of raising the minimum wage, but fails to address the complicated connection between low-cost goods and services that Americans have come to demand and the low minimum wage. If companies such as Wal-Mart, and McDonalds were to have to pay $15 an hour for their lowest paid employee’s, it stands to reason the added costs would be passed on to consumers. Would Americans revolt at the idea of paying nearly double for a “happy meal”, or a coffee maker? Yes, I believe they would.
According to Cadie Thompsons article, “ commuters worldwide could save a combined 1 billion hours everyday once autonomous cars go mainstream.” This is big for people that have a job, and are always busy. With this we could read, look at your phone, and do so many more things without driving dangerously. In the article titled “ Ten ways that driverless cars will change the world,” by Matthew Sparkes, it says that “ people would be able to work or do other activities behind the wheel while the car is driving itself.” This is big because a lot of people around the world are pressed for time everyday for multiple reasons, and this would help them manage their time
The United States is trillions of dollars in debt and legalizing marijuana could over time help reduce that amount a little bit. Also these days unemployment is a national problem and legalizing marijuana would cause people to open up marijuana dispensaries which would mean more businesses and more jobs, so it would also cause the unemployment rate to go down. Marijuana and marijuana oils have too many qualities that can benefit most people that it should be available to everyone. The value of the dollar is not very high right now, people are always trying to save as much money as they can and marijuana joints will be much cheaper than buying medication that will do the same thing. Many people in today’s society don’t understand why marijuana hasn’t been legalized everywhere when you look at the economic benefits.
Some 1,100 lives would be preserved, and the economic costs of automobile accidents would be reduced by more than $20 billion.” This means that even if 10% of the car is replaced by self-driving car, it can save many accidents from happening. From the figure 2, we can see the comparison of accident caused by a normal car and a self-driving car. Accordingly, the accident caused by the car drove by people are 23% more than of that self-driving
For starters, practically every driver speeds. Perhaps if there are enough autonomous cars on the road, the speed limits can be reworked to allow driving faster, decreasing commute time and saving time. Secondly, if cars are redesigned, people can be productive during what is essentially wasted time. With this extra time gained, which can be used for working, relaxing, or resting, people will be much happier. Actually, according to forbes.com, switching to autonomous cars as a country “would imply a time savings worth $99 billion every single year.” In other words, every year the United States could save enough money to buy the company Nike and still have a little cash left.
You should never give away more than you can afford because everyone has to live somehow. However, if you are someone who has spare money and would like to help the poor instead of spend unnecessary money on a really expensive car just for the hell of it then I think that's great. The first thing you need to do to donate a car to charity is jump online and do a Google search for any vehicle donation service. These services are surprisingly popular around the United States -- and far more popular in the United States than other parts around the globe. There are over 300 charities across the US where a person can choose to donate a car or motorcycle.
The argument that four-year college graduates are “drowning in debt” is reasonably valid, but the argument that going to college is not worth the time or money is invalid. Even if a graduate does not get a job right away, going to college enhances one’s character and builds on their own intellectual status. Moreover, according to Source F, adults who graduated college believe they are making $20,000 or more due to their degree, whereas adults who did not attend college believe they are making $20,000 or less for not have attending college. Attending college and earning a four-year degree is worth it immediately, and it pays for itself overtime. A large deterrent from college is the cost of tuition.
