1. Analyze the success and failures of the following types of diplomacy: Big Stick, Dollar and Moral Diplomacy. The end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century was known as the Progressive Era in the United States. Inside the country, social and economic reforms would come to define the period, but outside the country, America’s economic and military powers were being used in diplomatic negotiations to expand the country’s influence. The United States saw it necessary to keep up with European powers in Asia, especially in the Manchurian region of China and at the same time avoid foreign intervention or investment in Latin American markets.
America wanted to civilize them from the issues that is occurring. According to Document 4, “America is trying to show how the Filipinos that America can make their “dreams” come true erasing their problems with freedom, education, and justice.” The Filipinos wanted the independence, making US leader seizing the opportunity to control the Philippines by showing pull factors. United States didn’t really care about the issues going on in the Philippines. Controlling Philippines allows the United States a mid pacific port for trade purists. American wanted to control the Philippines government to get closer to China for trading.
It is a tool that the Chinese government employs to regulate information flow within the country as she opens her doors to the World. “China will become the next major player in geopolitics, making China a responsible member of the international community or an economic superpower that is capable of shaping the world” (Herrington, 2011). The dispute between Google and China has surfaced weaknesses in China’s authoritarian regime to control information. However, China, a state-controlled society for centuries cannot be forced to accept and adopt concepts like freedom of expression in similar fashion as Western societies have done. China cannot be subjected to hegemonic domination by Google and has to adopt it on her own terms and pace.
Harmony has a meaning similar to peace, security and equality as well as equivalent to the happiness of the Confucian perspective. Also, the concept of harmony has empowered with the imagination of prosperity. To some extent, there has distortion of unity due to political aims. This section will focus on the mutual relation between harmony and another similar concept to examine the conceptual manipulation of the notion of harmony. The idea of Harmony often connects with the idea of peace.
Countries act in ways that will best promote their power . In our current world, the best way to promote one’s own power is by aligning themselves with the hegemon, which is usually seen as the United States. One example of this would be the way the western world attempts to limit the rising power of Russia through economic sanctions. Ultimately, the Democratic Peace Theory does not explain why democracies go to war since it ignores that the potential for power and differing ideologies determine every regime type, including democracies, thus war is a possibility whenever ideologies are radically different and power can be gained through
Of course there are many more factors make the formation of the stock market bubble and burst. Reference factors summarized above, in my personal opinion, the current bull market in China, to prevent investors to buy stocks is not unreasonable, but to remember the following points: 1: To remember that we are hard to beat the house retail, and just remember to leave when you make a profit, remember not to use excessive leverage risk to stocks 2: Do not blindly stocks, If you want to make money in the stock market,you need knowledgement and courage, and lose money is normal, to maintain a good
Politically, in many ways, they are correct. John P Walter, the former director of The White House Office of National Drug control policy, points out that failure to fight against drug legalization in the country works against International anti-drug efforts. This could then weaken ties with Nations that have been strong trade partners and political allies, thus weakening our country's position in the world. In opposition to this point, some argue that the weakened trade alliances could benefit our country by encouraging businesses to remain in the United States rather than outsourcing their businesses
Thus, the United States entered into the Chinese Civil War to restrain the growth of communism in China and to defend United States country to balance its power with the Soviet Union, so that the Soviet Union could not become the most powerful state. United States is a country that has a super power after World War II with the Soviet Union, but in the Chinese Civil War United States lost this war when siding with China nationalist party. And in this case I assume that with the resignation of the United States while helping the Chinese nationalist party, because if the United States increasingly help Chinese nationalist party, the faster growth of the Chinese Communist Party. This is because the Chinese communists will continue to expand the territory of the continuing war between the Communist Party of China with the Chinese nationalist party. And it makes more and more followers of communism in China.
Some believe bailouts are critical to stop the domino effect in the financial sector and the loss of employment ”Bailing out Wall Street bankers is necessary to keep the US economy from crumbling even further and taking American workers down with it.” (Barack Obama, US president, 29 September 2008). But also state that banks can find a new equilibrium without government intervention Bailout is not necessary “The banking industry can handle this mess internally and does not need subsidies.” (Bert Ely, a leading expert on banking and finance in the Washington policy community, 24 September 2008). In my opinion I believe that government intervention that in theory government intervention is necessary to stop the domino effect on the innocent citizen. However I think that the for government intervention for example in wall street is bailing people and company out who reaped the rewards while they were successful and supply a safety net to them when they fail as is stated in Dam and Koetter Bank Bailouts and Moral Hazard: Evidence from Germany
First Obama tries to hide his intentions that might not appeal to the general public, and also hide the unwanted truths about the war on terror in order to provide a feeling of safety for the electorate. When Obama addressed the country 's economy, he uses phrases such as “investment” instead of government spending. Due to the negative connotations of ‘spending’, such as lavish and immoderate, he chose to use investment due to its opposite connotations so the audience believes that the tax money is used for a positive outcome. When advocating an increase in taxes he stated “revenue enhancement”, and “making spending reductions in the tax code,” to make tax increases more satisfactory to an overtaxed electorate. It makes the electorate unaware of the government 's actions, which cuts down the amount of citizens fighting against Obama and his decisions.
After taking office, Wilson repudiated his predecessors Dollar Diplomacy, although he supported private American investments. Wilson also withdrew the government’s encouragement of an investment scheme in China because endorsement implied
People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned. Imperialism can not be seen as a horrible thing all the time. These countries often do get protection from us, if ever threaten. My intent for American imperialism is for America to be put on the map. Some of my tactics will help America to do just that.
I believe that the US has done a relatively decent job the forward thinking of presidents like Nixon, Truman, Roosevelt and Johnson cemented the US position on the global stage. However the inability to stop the takeover of the Defense industry and industrial influence in our political system as Eisenhower warned is troublesome. I believe that the shorted sightedness of our leaders led to deregulation that benefited the leaders of industry and that will only get worse as the expansion of US industries into third world countries, this expansion will give each country a small say in policies as presidential candidates are financed by industry leaders. Thus preventing elected leaders from implementing regulation that will control or prevent global economic crisis or military engagements in order to protect industrial interests in foreign
Federalist leader Alexander Hamilton’s financial plan was fought with opposition from the Republicans. Though Jefferson and Madison opposed, the financial plan was approved by congress. “The central government assumed all debt regulates and the National Bank provides and regulates currency” (Class notes). Taxes were places on imports and whiskey which caused s whiskey rebellion in 1794. “The Federalists saw the economic future in manufacturing, but not political role of “common man.” Little faith in democracy.” “Republicans saw political future of “common man” participating in republic, Faith in the new democracy, but failed to see that farming was not economic future.” (Class notes) Each group had ideas that needed support from one another.
When people want to against and start to create anti-political corruption campaign, they have to think what strategy to make their nation strong. They believe in small government that people have more personal freedom. They want privacy to let out the government control. This is the reason why corruption is happening because if they can limited big government, they can support a new stability. For example, Ayn Rand argues that the great creator - the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors - stood alone against the man of their time (Rand, 1972: 665).
