Standage has found innumerable connections and insights into not only the histories of the beverages themselves but also their impacts on the larger human society.

It will be helpful for all students when writing their essays and gain more knowledge about our history that we should all know.
To help put the scene into perspective, Wallace explains this event as “less of an intersection” of the two industries, but more of a “deliberate collision” (1). The idea of a car crash makes you think of a mess. Car parts sprawled about the road, masses of people and emergency
In chapter 8, the core economic principle that displays itself often is The Consequences of Choices Lie in the Future. This principle presents the idea that what we are doing in today’s economy will have an impact on the future. Whether it is decisions on cutting benefits or raising taxes, any of these could cripple our futures economy. In the chapter, it discusses the fiscal policy and how it saved America’s economy after the depression. By monitoring the nation 's spending budget and taxes, so another depression or a recession does not occur. Before the depression, the government did not involve its self in the economy too much, which caused America 's future economy to become weak and collapse after the market crashed and many other problems. The fiscal policy was put into order to prevent the economy from collapsing and to stabilize it. The policy was used to plan for the future, which would have still been in a great depression for longer than
This drink was one of the starting points where a fare was offered to a god since it was believed to be a gift from the gods. If it was not have thought so, then religious ceremonies would be different because there would be no offerings nor sacrifices. For instance, the religious practice that the Greeks, Aztecs, Romans, and Egyptians did, would have greatly affected their civilizations since it was part of their daily lives. Journal #2.
A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage is not the typical history read that one might expect. To some who find reading history books quite tedious and overwhelming, this book is for you. Standage divides his book into 6 main sections via beverages: Beer, Wine, Spirits, Coffee, Tea and Coca-Cola. These drinks, which all started as a form of medicine, not only have great affects on today’s social culture but have also affected the historical spread of technology, religion, exploration, trade, slavery, and noteworthy worldwide events that changed society. As Standage describes it, Beer was a representation of both liquid wealth and health during the early civilizations in Egypt and Mesopotamia.
They encountered a man on the road that had been struck by lightning and was also suffering from starvation. The boy wanted to turn back and help the wounded stranger, but the man had to explain to the boy that they did not have enough of anything to share with him (McCarthy 49-52). They barely had enough to take care of themselves, and if they gave away anything that they had, they would be more likely to starve. It was a decision between their own lives and others’. There was also another occasion where the man and boy were on the beach and were robbed of most of their belongings (McCarthy).
The second case – controlling the market – is where the contrast between small firms and big business contrasts is most evident. The small firm lacks the capacity to influence prices, as both their market share and purchasing power are limited; however, big business possesses an abundance of both. Big business is able to exert their power by influencing prices because their decision to buy can be the difference between survival and failure for suppliers. Furthermore, Galbraith (1967, 30) suggests that the influence of size enables firms not only to control price but also quantity sold. Although Galbraith acknowledges that influence on demand is inexact; One should not discount its importance. Advertising, sales organization, and product design
In the early 1900’s, many immigrants moved to America with hopes that they could live freely and work to have a better life. The Jungle, written by Upton Sinclair, is about a Lithuanian family who worked in the Chicago Stockyards and discovered the true horrors of working in the meatpacking plants. The theme in Upton Sinclair’s book, The Jungle, reveals how much damage capitalism caused and the effect that capitalism had on people. As the main character goes throughout life, he is constantly being set back by capitalism. “Capitalism is an economic system where private entities own the factors of production”, says Amadeo. The book explains how capitalism is awful and how it affects the characters life and setting. Upton Sinclair is constantly reminding the readers that the unfair working conditions are due to a corrupt government. The Jungle is mainly about how capitalism has failed and how businesses have corrupted. Based on the book and how capitalism is portrayed, there are many examples to support the reasons why capitalism is corrupt. Upton Sinclair’s book, The Jungle, demonstrates how capitalism affected many U.S. immigrants and uses many examples in his writing to describe the correlation between unfair working
In chapter two of Money, Greed, and God, Jay W. Richards says that the federal government doesn 't appropriately distribute welfare to those who need it. In addition, Richards says that the government should simply stay out of matters this small because they could be better handled by smaller more locally run organizations. In essence, the federal government is “too big” to know how to help the needy. I completely disagree with this assertion. Although the federal government is big and oblivious to who exactly needs what, it is still a necessary part of the welfare distribution system because of the money it has and all the power needed to deliver said funds. Giving the money to the smaller organizations, especially Christian ones like churches,
The theme of “Highway: Michigan” is how dangerous driving and working in a factory has become. The workers entire lives revolve around the car. They work all day making them, then they drive home in them. They have no escape from them except death. “One driver, pinned beneath the seat, escapes the machine at last,” (Roethke).
The scenes of poverty were inescapable, evident on the faces of adults and children. It was extremely important to me to interact with the children as I would my sister or friend. To me they were not destitute kids; they were just kids, like
We never think of the other people in life who are struggling to buy their own food, having a hard time to support their families. In Night it explains throughout the book where people fight for food and water. That they try everything in their will to stay alive. “Dozens of men fought desperately over a few crumbs” (100). Our society has become immune to being better than those who don’t have what we have be started to ignore or forget about the less fortunate.
Should wealth be distributed to the poor and the public? Are heroes actual heroes? In “The Gospel of Wealth” Andrew Carnegie gave his opinion that when the wealthy die, the money should be spread evenly between the less fortunate and the public.(Carnegie 21) In “A Trumpet Note for Heroes” Dee Brown states that Custer did some awful things, when he died, he became a hero.(Brown 3) It is crystal clear that “The Gospel of Wealth” is a firsthand account, because Carnegie wrote the excerpt in his point of view by saying, “I believe I offer the true solution.” which made it that he offered a solution in his time period.(Carnegie 24) Therefore, “A Trumpet Note for Heroes” is the secondary source, because Dee Brown gave more of a novel and it did not give any evidence that Brown was the first hand account. Brown mentioned in the beginning of his article, “General George Custer led the 7th U.S. Cavalry Regiment…” this about what Custer did, not what Brown did.(Brown 3)
