Walmart was founded in the summer of 1962 by Kingfisher, Oklahoma native Sam Walton. Although Walton’s original vision for the store was relatively modest, the half century since its founding has seen Walmart morph into one of the biggest companies in the world. Today headed by one Doug McMillon, Walmart boasts more than 5000 stores in the United States of America alone and employs more than 1.5 million people. Walmart is undoubtedly an American institution, yet each Walmart store feels like its own little country. Walmart seems to have its own laws and customs and the people who shop their on a regular basis appear almost primitive in their behavior as they go about raiding the store’s shelves and wrestling with fellow customers for discount flat screen televisions and bulk packages of two-ply toilet paper.
Paneras competitor would be Einstein Bros. Bagels. At both Panera and Einstein Bros. they have many different types of bagels. Panera obviously has cheaper prices like at Panera you can get a dozen bagels for $9.99 and at Einstein Bros. they are a whole $14.65. That is a $4.66 price difference for a dozen bagels. Einstein Bros. doesn 't have that big of a price difference for everything on their menu though.
If we are comparing junk food to eating healthy then yes junk food is cheaper. Going to McDonalds you can get two cheeseburgers and a large drink all for $3.25, while if you want a salad your total will most likely be over $6. Our society complains that too many children even adults are obese, but it’s not their fault. We can’t help that we would rather by the cheapest thing on menu than the most expensive. America wants their citizen to eat less junk food due to the increase of obesity today, they want us to be healthy and active but the healthiest items cost the most.

It is the second largest industry and makes around 186 billion per year. Since prostitution businesses are illegal, the government doesn’t collect taxes from them. However, with the legalization of prostitution US tax authorities can generate around $20 billion per year. In Germany, where prostitution is legalized the prostitution industry is worth 16 billion euros and the tax revenues is a major contribution to city budget. This money could be used to start programs, build parks, schools, and so much more.
The Canadians put tariffs on imported magazines since the 1920s. Most of the magazines are foreign, being just 11 percent of them Canadian. Any magazine printed outside Canada is considered foreign. However, in 1990 American Magazines sent their literary content to be printed in Canada and try to avoid those taxes. They offered lower prices in advertising affecting the local publishers that depend completely on the local market.
The American has average income spend less than $8 per person per day for their meals and beverages. Meanwhile, poor people just spend only $25 per person per week. This is a big gap in their cost of meal. The main cause is healthful diets cost more than unhealthful diets (Drewnowski & Darmon, 2005). Besides, America is the unhealthiest countries in the world.
It makes sense that a product out of the ordinary would be more expensive, however spending money on these products is useless. A study conducted in the Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice & Research actually found the average unit price for a gluten-free product was $1.71 and for the regular product it was only $0.61. One unit of the gluten free product is a little more than 2 and a half times more expensive than one unit for the normal product, which is absurd. Colombia Broadcasting System even states, “Overall, Americans will spend an estimated $7 billion this year on foods labeled gluten-free.” Money spent on these products is money that could be going towards medical care, mortgages, furthering education, housing those in need, not wasted on products which will cause one to gain weight and become unhealthier. A dietetic intern at Iowa State University researched the gluten-free diet as well and she formulated a bar graph to compare prices of gluten-free and non-gluten-free products.
Currently America is failing to help new immigrants seeking legal citizenship gain it and is not upholding its part of the deal. Although gaining citizenship seems like a simple thing on paper, it is truly more difficult. America gains the majority of its illegal immigrants from Mexico, totaling just under half, which is currently 5.4 million people ("5 facts about illegal immigration in the U.S."). If there were more attainable methods of gaining citizenship, this would allow these people to become bigger contributors to society. Even though illegal immigrants only make up about three and a half percent of America’s population, they are slightly over five percent of the workforce (Billups).
More precisely, people are purchasing food through the drive- through. So a greater amount of people eat calorie dense foods that do not give them energy, only a higher consumption of artificial sugar, greater than a single soda may have. For instance, a typical can of soda has thirty-nine grams of sugar, but a small size Refresher from Dutch Bro’s has fifty-two point grams in it and a small size McCafe Mango Pineapple Smoothie from McDonald’s has forty- two grams of sugar in it. Soda is far from the only thing that has sugar in it. In this day and age, everything has artificial sugar in it.
