As America entered and went through dark economic tensions, President Kennedy strived for stable prices and wages. After the largest steel companies raised steel prices by 3.5 percent, Kennedy gave a speech in response. In the speech, Kennedy calls out the steel companies for actions that were “wholly unjustifiable” and “irresponsibly defiant” to the American people. He appeals to the audience’s emotion, uses repetition, and applies logic to achieve his goal in persuading the companies to lower steel prices. Kennedy appeals to his audience’s emotions by relating to the average American, and by guilting the steel companies.
Hence, Nozick believes in historical principles of justice that hold people’s past actions can create contrastive entitlements to things (Nozick, 1974: 155). Nozick contrasts his entitlement theory with end-state principles and patterned principles in arguing that these principles are inconsistent. A principle of distribution is patterned if it holds that a distribution of goods is just only if it meets a particular pattern (Nozick, 1974: 156).
Equality, respect and greatness hold so much in the master-slave morality debate. On the other hand, good, bad and friendship are of less significance.

In economic discourse, economic imperialism has started to be discussed after Becker claimed that each and every aspect of life could be understood through economic analysis. While his followers support Becker’s position by asserting that individuals constantly make a cost-and-benefit analysis and come up with decisions accordingly, the others argue that the understanding of Becker is invading/colonizing other social disciplines in some way. In this paper, I will discuss Becker’s position in the discipline of economics through his way of conceptualizing noneconomic activities. First of all, I will briefly present the theory of prostitution studied by two followers of Becker. Then, I will mention some critiques from different alternative perspectives to challenge the fundamentals of Beckerian understanding.
For instance, a student could be given a lot of homework and not all students have the time to get it done. They could have other extra curricular activities to do, like sports, chores, practice of some sort etc. It is found that too much homework could cause too little sleep. In this case, the average school hours for most districts are about 8-9am till 2-3pm. Usually, most kids spend about 6.5-7 hours of school from monday-friday, not only are students in school for many hours but for 5 days and homework just adds more hours at home.

Causes of brain drain can categorized into push factors and pull factors. Push factors are negative characteristics of the home country that forms the impetus for intelligent people migrating from Lesser Developed Countries (LDC).

Pull factors are the positive characteristics of the developed country from which the migrant would like to benefit.

(According to Facts to Help Parents Identify the Pros and Cons of Year-Round School) Also Many schools already struggle to pay teachers a competitive wage, making it hard to keep high quality teachers. The cost of teaching as a full-time endeavor may not be feasible either locally or federally. So if if you lose your high quality teachers the students won’t learn as much and it cost to much money.
Not everybody can go to school and learn, there are thousands of students who want to study but lack of money became a hindrance. Poverty is one of the main causes of the country’s poor education record and has affected participation in education in more ways than one. Even with the “zero tuition” offer of the government, poor families are hindered by lack of employment and short income. Meanwhile, since the establishment of the institution of higher education in the Philippines three centuries and seven decades ago, the demand for higher education cost has continued to increase. This results to average Filipino parent to go through great sacrifices and self-denial to be able to send a child to school, knowing it would mean half of the family’s annual income a year per child.
Research shows that it may not be the grades you get but the subjects you take that matter to your future earnings over this I get to know that grades had great value for them to just get higher wages, instead of wondering that which subjects can give you a well paid job we should more focus on the skills gained from those subjects and the main problem here lies in how poorly advised A-level students are as teachers and mentors commonly say that “oh, just do what you love doing the most”, instead of advising them to study subjects that are not only going to get them into their chosen degree course, but also open some doors afterwards.
