It was necessary to create a federal bank because of the benefits they oversaw would be achieved in the future. The analysis made by Gordon in his book is consistent with arguments made by to have a bank that would be effective in the utilization of the powers authorized from the government as was implied in the constitution . In his factual analysis, Gordon asserts that the Congress or the politicians in general had presented failings and they could not be trusted with controlling the federal deficit. According to Gordon, the problem is not the size of the debt.

Commonly understood as a political economy committed to rolling back the state, neoliberalism has characterized a decade of challenges and reforms. Both in the US and in the UK, the neoliberal thinking upset the previous political ideas ascribable to the Keynesian Era. Ronald Reagan spearheaded neoliberal policies in the US during his presidency, lasting from 1981 to 1989. The US political context shaped and constrained his ideas, leading this country to a unique neoliberal revolution (Jacob, 1985). A limitation of the power of trade unions, a huge process of deregulation and a relatively slight economic growth had to face, however, an increasing government spending, thus debunking the so-called ‘Reagan myth’ (Krugman, 2008).
(Bowie 2013, 42) Therefore one could believe that the reason for why economics is a foe of ethics, is mainly because of the classical equilibrium economies, in which the economy is formed by the behaviours of individuals and firms.

Whether it is because there are poorer and richer people or because it seems difficult to resist and protest against capitalism. The fact that the topic of resistance in a capitalist system has always been a topic is shown in these two stories which have a time span of more than 150 years between each other. This comparison also might be a
Since 1979 the Conservative government, which came to power, was led by the energetic M. Thatcher, who proposed an entirely new economic development program radically different from all previous programs. Such economic development strategy in history was known as neoconservatism. She rejected all strong state regulation of the economy, i.e. the idea of Keynesianism. The new government analyzed the accumulated economic problems and came to the conclusion that in order to exit the country from this situation it is necessary to eliminate in the social and economic system a number of shortcomings.
He attacked Berlin and Brussels’ policies, saying that they constituted a “straitjacket” and wondering why the economic recovery had come in the US much faster than in Europe. “I think that it is not easy to change Europe, when you are alone,” said Tsipras, adding that “we saw that there is no other way. Our European partners and Germany was very, very hard.” … “From now on, my job as a prime minister will be to apply what I consider the wrong medicine, hoping that my country won’t explode, becoming more attractive to private investors and regaining its national

In fact, Modernism evolved as an artistic reaction to dramatic changes in politics, culture, society, and technology. In social context also, in science, there was a remarkable shift away from Newtonian science and toward Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Moreover, in the second half of the nineteenth century, Darwin had questioned the idea of Genesis, leading to the dilemma of faith and doubt. Similarly, Marx had debunked the idea of a man in God’s image by showing man as an economic being.
However, it proved to be otherwise for a country like Nigeria. The emergence oil and the economy turning into a mono product economy in no time gave rise to what is commonly referred to as the Dutch-disease. A situation where the there is a sudden decrease in the manufacturing or the agricultural sector despite increase in the exploitation of natural resources. The economy of Nigeria is constantly exposed to oil price shocks and market vulnerability since oil contributes to over 90% of the total revenue.
