Chicago was not a rich city to begin with, and the harsh conditions of weather, crime, and just living conditions took a serious toll on the inhabitants. It was an area on the rush of becoming what it is today, but during the time it was no place to live peacefully. The Fair in was built primarily by people who needed work desperately; however, once the Fair was built, the work was gone and the conditions of these laborers remained the same. The contrast is between the extravagant White City which the world came to see and the city around it which was still dirty and miserable. All the glorious innovations displayed at the Fair promised a bright future; in contrast was the deprivation of the then current
The condition of the working class in the US at the beginning of the 20th century was extremely challenging since workers had to struggle for survival on the daily bases that can be clearly seen from The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. However, in the course of time, the situation did not change in principle because the US did not conduct systematic socioeconomic reforms that would eliminate conditions for the exploitation of a large group of people by a few for the benefit of the few, while the large part of the population remains at the risk of economic disaster. At this point, the recent economic recession is the best evidence of the lack of such reforms. This is why just like a hundred years ago, the US still faces the problem of the social injustice with the severe exploitation of employees, whose only source of income is scarce wages, while a few families concentrate in their hands the lion share of the national wealth and have a considerable and determinant impact not only on the US economy but also politics. The Jungle by Upton Sinclair does not just show horrors
Cabela’s has many strengths and opportunities for its future success in the outdoor supplies and apparel market. However, Cabela’s has several shortcomings and weaknesses as well. First, Cabela’s has the disadvantage of its limited locations throughout the nation. CEO Tommy Millner says that going fast and racing to open stores is not their style. He says “By growing too fast, you get into a rat race in retail where you’re just hiring somebody with no expertise, and that’s a bad outcome for us” (Adams).
Based on the concept of integration, trade diversion has always been the focal argument. As many feel that because third countries (those of which have lower opportunity cost than member countries) are excluded by the import tariffs, it causes consumer surplus to decrease because of integration. Others make the argument that the trade creation will exceed the trade diversion, Despite the economic and political arguments from both sides, integration has never been and will never be easy to achieve. The fact is that though economic integration benefits the majority, it has its costs. While expanding business in Canada might benefit from a regional free trade agreement, expanding in others could be
Besides, Detroit suggests public transit for reducing traffic congestion and decreasing oil consumption. Even though Detroit 's points are considerable, I strongly disagree with his argument. Detroit made a huge mistake when he assumed that the bus is the "cure-all solution" because it causes more issues than it solves such as wasting time, providing
One is of the opinion that giving money to panhandlers only contributes to a bigger problem. In order to assist with the problem of panhandling requires the assistance of city government and citizens; thus assuring the money given will help those in need. Panhandling has been a problem in the city of Memphis for years and is a growing problem in many cities (“Say No to Panhandling,” 2017). In order to deal with the growing
Detroit is now starting to suffer in these recent years. The unemployment rate has sky rocketed and the quality of education in the citizens is poor. When Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was introduced I was worried about it having too many side effects that Detroit is already suffering from. Although when President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration was put on the table I know this could change things. I would only fund President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigrations in hopes of lowering unemployment and raising the quality of education.
The conclusions of gentrification has shifted in recent years, whether it stands for its moral or corrupt. In the course text from the Sharon Zukin’s article, “Naked City: The City That Lost Its Soul”, argues that gentrification is often detrimental to low income/longtime residents, destruction and the end of old authentic neighborhoods. Zukin argues, based on the facts on white-collar men and women have taken up all space, development of new residents and creating a cultural/economic barrier between rich and poor, young and old. Vice Versa, according to recent studies and new formulas of gentrification, it is an effective urban planning strategy because it minimizes the growth of slums, prevents crime and causes growth in the economy. Therefore,
Why do you think that gang problems are somewhat stubborn in large cities but not in small cities, towns, villages, or rural counties? Why may gang activity vanish in smaller jurisdictions? Why may gang troubles become progressively serious in some cities but not in others? Gang problems in larger cities are tenacious because of the economic conditions of the residents in larger cities. Very few small cities or and rural areas have the necessary population base and extremely deprived community circumstances to support gangs.
I know that people are set in their ways of different races, but times are changing and there are benefits when it comes to having an integrated society. People have to realize that life will go on and you cannot live your life in denial and showing disrespect to the other minorities. I have always wondered which city is the least integrated city in the United States because you cannot talk about something that is so widely known but yet no one wants to talk about the issue. As I began to research this issue the Huffington Post showed that Detroit Michigan is the least integrated city in the US and Priceonomics showed that collectively that Oakland California is the most integrated city. When the data showed me this result I began to look at the why factor and how come these two cities could be so different.
