Furthermore, this counters the argument that Immigration lowers American job opportunities. Those who are coming into America are raised in different job markets, so the jobs they are going for aren’t even jobs that Americans are working in. If Immigration creates jobs, lowers unemployment, and apply for jobs natives aren’t currently working, then what is such the Controversy about the subject? All claims critics are saying are automatically disproved by simple statistics. Immigrants who are coming to America to obtain citizenship should be allowed to stay.
Pare government social services” (Leopold, p. 93). The idea behind the model was to inspire the wealthy people of the United States to invest, which would create more jobs in order to raise incomes for everyone working.

But there is no reason why a competitive socialist system should be in a better position to avoid crises and unemployment than competitive capitalism.” Lemann’s article, on the other hand, implies that Federal Reserve Chairman Yellen believes the U.S economy is capitalistic but is leaning towards becoming an oligarchy (ruled by the few elite). Yellen is quite concerned about the income inequity in society today. “The Fed, not the Treasury or the White House or Congress, is now the primary economic policymaker in the United States, and therefore the world. Everybody is watching.
• Standard of living tells how fine or how unwell an individual or group of people lives in terms of having their needs and wants met. It includes the factors like income, employment availability, class disparity, inexpensive housing, literacy, political stability, poverty rate, and all factors like that. • Economic growth helps in increasing consumption, improving public service, reducing Unemployment and Poverty which leads to indirectly increase our living standards. • Economic growth is measured by increase in GDP or GNP. Economy can grow by two methods one by using more resources or by using same amount of resources more efficiently or effectively.
Share the benefits of economic growth through an emphasis on more widespread employment. The phenomenon of jobless economic growth that increases income inequalities and generates too few jobs for low income groups poses a serious threat to the well-being of many nations. Government policies should consider not only aggregate economic impact but also the distribution of employment. Socially responsible venture capital and microcredit initiatives can foster employment-generating businesses that complement the local culture and
However, the best possible solution in this case-scenario, is to expand the minimum wages and create new jobs for unemployed people. If this measure was put through, millions of people with low wages would be lifted out of poverty. Actually, “raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, would lift more than 4 million people out of poverty” (AmericanProgress). As well as creating new jobs, this would have played a major role in the fight against poverty. These measures, along with other economic measures would ensure a growth of the middle-class, and a decreasing of the poor.
The introduction was an effort to lift the country out of the deep recession of that time, commonly known as 'The Great Depression'. The enforcement of a minimum wage encouraged workers, gave them a better sense of security and spurred consumer spending. The economy saw an instant boost and started to feel the benefits of a standard living wage. The country, financially, went from strength to strength. With each leap, the minimum wage was subsequently increased to reflect the inflation of that time.
This act only benefited 1.2% of the people while 98.8% didn’t benefit. Many people believe why Clinton was successful due to the long-term effects of the “trickle-down theory.” Its possible to say both played a major role in Clintons major success in recovering America economically, Reagan on the other hand didn’t receive much attention for the his Page 3 of 4 3Nader “trickle-down” economic plan.
Authors adds threshold values of total credit to the private sector and deposit money bank assets, above which the total effect of remittance on growth is positive. Azam and khan (2011) Running the linear regression of two remittance receiving and same features countries i.e. Azerbaijan and Arminia.

Recommending to formulate the policies and encouraging to utilize more efficiently in order to improve society living standard.
In the case of Angola, the introduction of oil did cause inequality to go up but even years later inequality still remained at large and was still due to oil. According to the Kuznets curve, the introduction of oil would have caused inequality to go up, peak and then lower again. This would be due to more skilled labor in the oil industry. Due to corruption being part of the resource curse, inequality is not falling at the rate that it should be.
At the time, an uniform health care system and increased minimum wage could bridge the gap between poor and rich. Without assistance to the middle class and poor, the gap cannot be bridged. Krugman’s ideas for improving income equality can improve overall social equality. Raising the minimum wage allowed the lower class to finally have a chance in society to survive and not on the streets. More unions would allow better pay and job security.
In the first chapter of Jonas Pontusson’s book Inequality and Prosperity: Social Europe vs Liberal America, he raises an important question regarding if we are caught in a situation in which governments can no longer do much to improve the economic prospect of low-income workers and their families. Although the answer to his question varies in different countries, it is clear that the U.S. government CAN improve the lives of low-income citizens, but it often neglects to do so. The United States is a capitalist driven country. However, its quest for economic prosperity has come at the expense of those unable to reach the standard income. As much as Ronald Reagan have proclaimed the U.S. as the poster-boy of democracy and economic prosperity, the reality today is that many people are still deprived from the “American dream.”
Hillary Clinton, a democratic candidate, touches on her ideas of the economic classes today. She plans to “give working families a raise, and tax relief that helps them manage rising cost,” (Plan to Raise American Incomes). She also wants to “create good paying jobs and get pay rising by investing in infrastructure, clean energy, and scientific and medical research to strengthen our economy and growth,” (Plan to Raise American Incomes). Her ideas are what lower class people want to hear, but because they have been lied to so many times they do not know who to trust. The lower classes does not know that if we were to raise the minimum wage it would it possibly make them pay more than they already do in taxes now.
“We control every other species except our own.” (The Fresh Quote). Overpopulation is a big issue in society today, an issue that isn’t talked about as much as it should be. Everyone should be informed on the impacts they have on the planet we live on. In order to make people more aware of overpopulation, everyone should be more aware of the resources they use, how fast they use them and the affects they will have on the future.
