While critics may object to the criticisms presented, many of Hardin’s empirical claims have been proven untrue. The world does not operate as a zero-sum game – increases in efficiency, the limitless potential of materials as resources, and decreasing populations have created a scenario of ever increasing wealth across the world. Over the last thirty years alone global poverty has fallen by 30% (Qui, 2016). Hardin’s article is an interesting historical artifact, but it should not be used to describe the world as it exists

The fee of $ 550 million was as meagre as letting go of a two week profit for them. Even though it was the largest ever fee collected from the Wall Street, for Goldman Sachs it was just a soft pinch.

Introduction: The copper content of U.S. pennies has declined over the years due to rising prices. The expensive metal makes up just 2.5 percent of one-cent pieces minted in 1982 or later; nickels, dimes and quarters, on the other hand, are mainly composed of copper. Still, today’s pennies cost more than their face value—an estimated 1.8 cents each—to produce. In this lab, we analyzed penny mass to determine patterns between the masses. We came up with 30 different pennies and split them into trials.

Today if you ask most Americans their view on capitalism and whether they think it’s good or bad, majority of them will tell you that capitalism is good. Why, because capitalism is how most Americans make their money, capitalism is what drives the economy to grow.

Personally, I feel that capitalism is not a good economic system, and that it will always be a burden to the environment around us.
