Lofstock believes that Cumberland Farms, Inc. has strengthened their position in the northeast with the acquisition of 200 more stores. Gulf Oil will also get the distribution rights to the Exxon- branded fuel. This is a joint venture between Cumberland Farms and Gulf oil that will be a win –win situation for both companies. Cumberland Farms sees it as a way to get there products and services, under their brand, to more customers. Lofstock, J.
On the overpass leading into Yonkers is a large sign which states "GENERATION Y" short for generation Yonkers. After some research I found out that this was a plan to revitalize Yonkers. Mayor Mike Spano has approved for one billion dollars to be used fix up downtown Yonkers, focusing on the riverfront, in order to attract young business men and women. The idea in itself is wonderful. Not only are they fixing up dilapidated buildings, they are also bringing in new businesses that will stimulate the economy.
The new jobs will help many people in the country come out of poverty, which interests not only our country, but the economy also. While building the pipeline, the demand for metals, pipes, valves, pumps and anything else needed, will increase. Cities can also make hotels, restaurants, and other facilities to help the pipeline workers, therefore creating more jobs.This will help local cities economy. Along with creating new jobs, the Dakota Pipeline transports crude oil. We should continue construction of the Dakota Pipeline is to increase production of crude oil.
After reviewing the information that has been provided about the Tennessee Valley Authority vs. Hill court case along with additional findings about the primary purpose for the construction of the Tellico Dam, it has made the questions that are ask in this week’s post much easier to answer. Although, there are some key factors that must be taken into consideration before we choose either side. These factors included that the TVA project was approved to start construction in 1967, David Etnier discovered the snail darter in 1973, this small fish was declared an endangered species in 1975, the Tellico community expected the dam project to generate power, and benefit their economic resources. Also, we have to think about the fact that the snail darter was downgraded in 1980 to a threatened species simply because it was found in other areas of the Tennessee
Nicolas D. Loris, who is an economist at the Heritage Foundation, claims fracking helps create new jobs “for geologists, engineers, rig workers, truck drivers, and pipe welders”—such as a plant located in Pennsylvania that will generate about 10,000 new jobs—and also helps create more business for hotels and restaurants (“Fracking is not a Public Health Risk,” Chemicals). Using this method of wastewater injections, says Loris, also generates over “600 trillion cubic feet of natural gas… [which] is enough heat to 15 million homes for one year” (“Fracking is not a Public Health Risk, Chemicals). He continues his argument by saying that, with the creation of new jobs, hydraulic fracking increases the U.S. economy and makes natural gas available for vital things such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and fertilizers (“Fracking is not a Public Health Risk,”
Many people against raising the minimum wage argue it would raise the unemployment rate. Many argue companies wouldn’t be able to keep the same amount if workers, and half a million jobs would be lost (Minimum wage). This is not true, the extra money in customers hands would raise the economy enough to cancel out the extra costs, and actually create more jobs. Jobs might initially be lost, but in the long run, they will recover with a vengeance. In the end, when people say raising the minimum wage would lose jobs, it is a temporary loss that will recover within a year or
The Progressive Movement, occurring between the 1890s-1920s, arose to ameliorate the deficiencies of the Gilded Age. Although the Gilded Age was a prosperous time for the U.S. economy, the wealth was not distributed evenly. Yes, the Progressive Movement failed to address racial equality, but there were milestones in remedying political corruption, making the free market less monopolized, and improving the quality of life for the population which made the progressive movement overall-effective. Prior to the Progressive Movement, during the Gilded Age, the U.S. was plagued with corrupt politicians. These corrupt politicians, who went hand-in-hand with corrupt businessmen, spurred the economy forward but built their success upon the suffering
While some citizens believe that a $15 raise will help the economy, the author comprehends the negative consequences of any federal minimum wage increase on the economy. Holzer also defends the idea of a massive increase on in not only unemployment rates, but common household items, as well.

Hydraulic fracturing has helped the economy in some ways. For example fracking has created over 60,000 new jobs such as drillers, pipe fitters, electricians and engineers for our communities. In Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Texas together have enough natural gas to power the entire United States for 110 years because of fracking. In some ways fracking is good for the economy like for example, it gives all Americans a clean, inexpensive source of fuel, and helps the growth of the economy. Keep in mind fracking has also caused earthquakes, pollution and health issues for humans, but in the early 1980s, there was so much natural gas that all gas prices were reduced.
This has been proven to be false; and in actuality the elimination of the penny may result in a net gain for consumers. With the elimination of the penny prices will be rounded up in some cases, however in other cases they will be rounded down. This will ultimately equal out and will not cost consumers more money. Also, it will result in a net gain for consumers because based on a study conducted in 2006, the time that will be saved in handling the pennies is worth about $730 million per year. (6) Furthermore, the studies that have shown that the presence of a rounding tax will increase prices are a myth.
Governor Florio mentioned the state would pay with the $200 million surplus from the 1993 budget, or from the $150 million surplus in his budget proposal for 1994. According to the Spring Lake mayor, the town will save almost $120,00. As you could imagine the beach fees will still have to be raised, but not as much, due to the savings of Spring Lake. There were many towns, mostly along the New Jersey coast, that had local tax increases to pay for the restoring of damages. To prevent these high damages from happening again the state was focusing on shore protection, and reform laws.
The New Deal extended beyond economic stimulus by also providing Kern County with the opportunity to build levees to prevent flooding from the Kern River.3 Despite the differences in opinion on the success of the overall New Deal, most scholars recognize that it had far-reaching impacts that shaped future American economic policy.4 The New Deal set future policies of increased government spending during economic downturns for the coming decades. The Second World War confirmed these ideas to Keynesian economists when the country saw more government spending on a wider scale having a huge stimulus to the economy. The approach I’ll be taking in my research will be that the New Deal largely had positive outcomes for the valley. I’ll be using primary sources from local papers because papers like The Bakersfield Californian have opinion articles during the implementations of public work
