First, over 700 million dollars is being lost per year just because of the time wasted counting pennies! Imagine you want to buy a nice TV that costs a thousand dollars and you’ve been saving up pennies for awhile now and you think you have enough. You get to the checkout aisle and you sit there for 30 minutes counting all your pennies making a bunch of people angry because they have to wait in line behind you while you count them all. You could get out of that store way faster if you counted nickels or quarters instead of all those pennies. Also, according to

According to Source 4: Favor Abolishing The Penny? By the New York Times, The data shows 59 percent are for keeping the penny while an underwhelming 23 percent are for abolishing it. Conversely, the reason for the difference is unclear but, if more people were aware of the repercussions pennies are causing they arguably most likely would switch sides in the argument. According to Abolish the Penny by William Safire, “There is no escaping economic history: it takes nearly a dime today to buy what a penny bought back in 1950. Despite this, the U.S. Mint keeps churning out a billion pennies a month.” The complete waste of time and money spent producing these pennies just to be forgotten in the couch cushions is astounding.
Massachusetts Stove Company return on Common equity ratio has fluctuated from 224% in year 3 all the way 32.6% in year 7. This change occurred because of the companies change in capital structure leverage.

By comparing her voice to money, Fitzgerald supplements the fact that green represents Gatsby’s desire for Daisy because American money is green. Through this, he also creates the idea of significant wealth being the dream many wish to achieve. This is a relatively new idea because the industrial revolution had been the first chance at wealth and innovation for many in Europe and America, and it had only occurred a few decades before. Thus, extreme wealth had not been the primary achievement desired during the 1700’s, when the American dream first arose. Therefore, in Modern American society, what people desire most is significantly focused around frivolous and insignificant things such as superfluous wealth, but they are not willing to work hard to achieve

Roosevelt was an only child, and his family had been prominent for several generations, having made their fortune in real estate and trade. His family lived in Springwood, New York. First of all the Presidency at the depth of the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt, helped the American people regain faith in themselves.

Britain bought India's natural resources, such as cotton, cheaply, and would then use their Industrial machines to make exceptional goods, which they sold back to the Indian people at a higher price (Doc 2).This was extremely profitable for the British (Imperialism in India). The modern British industries destroyed the previous cottage industries in India because goods were made faster and better in Europe (Doc 11). This also stopped the growth of new industries which could have lead to more jobs and a wealthier
Although the movie did have some interesting additions and removals, the book was far more appealing to a general audience than the movie. One of the first reasons for why the book is better than the movie is because of the characters. In the movie, they removed Yitzchak and Reuven. These are very important characters in the story. They even replaced Gitl with Aunt Mina, who did not play as big of a role compared to Gitl’s.
