Moreover, the German Ludendorff offensive, which is a colossal German attack on the Western Front, also had a huge role in the initiating German defeat. Furthermore, these reasons coalesced to induce the German defeat in WW1. The figure above (Figure 1: Germany Troops, 1918) shows
Thomas Friedman’s argument for the “flat world” fundamentally claims that the third phase of globalization has leveled the world playing field. According to Friedman, the first phase, Globalization 1.0, shrank the world through “countries globalizing for resources and imperial conquest” (Friedman 2). Then Globalization 2.0 shrank the world further when companies globalized world markets, labor, and resources. Finally, Friedman argues that we are now in Globalization 3.0, in which the world is not only being shrunken down further, but also flattened. Unlike 1.0 and 2.0, the driving force behind Globalization 3.0 is individuals and small groups.
America today is faced with its fair share of problems. There are low employment rates, debt, and inflation everywhere, riddling the economy with issues. There is absolutely no reason that any American citizen should want to pile upon the problem. Yet, some believe that it could be done by raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour.

The Scottish philosopher Adam Smith, who is renowned as the father of modern economics was an early and influential argument for the free market system (Blenman, 2016). Many people during Adam Smith's time believed that the alternative to the guild system was economic chaos.
Cohen describes the effects of job elimination, layoffs, less working hours, and lower pay for these groups. How employers and ethnic supports groups could not support the mass relief efforts. She describes “how Chicago’s factory workers, who had been isolated from the federal government and unorganized on the eve of the depressions, came to hold the view that a strong state and strong unions could remedy the failure of capitalism so glaring in the Great Depression. She accomplishes this by “outlining how and why workers turned to the federal government” and “the way they (workers) became invested in a national union
(Gooijer, 2007) The economic argument and the ideological argument. According to the economic argument the global competition motivates the employees to minimize the labour cost as much as possible. (Gooijer, 2007) This leads to a shrink in the welfare state. The ideological argument combines the two beliefs of neo-liberalism and individualization further legitimizing the need to shrink the welfare state.
