They say our nation is in trouble with our security, although are are we in so much trouble we need to keep our troops overseas, costing our nation’s debt and our troops health. One reason why our military should end their overseas operations is because our government and citizens have spent too much of their money on things that we should be using for other, more important things. Taxpayers have spent more than $454 billion on the war in Afghanistan. That is enough to pay for the president’s jobs plan. (Haugen, David M).
The biggest challenge facing the United States is our national debt. As of right now America is in debt over eighteen trillion dollars.

The French revolution was the result of decades of social inequality, national financial troubles and radical ideas developing in Europe. For years, the lower 99% of French society was tormented by the inability to rise up from their status to become nobility or become wealthy. While the people seethed under the aristocracy, the French national debt soared from their financial support to the American Revolution. France needed to raise more taxes to sustain the economy and maintain order, but this required major changes. Three things needed to be done to prevent a revolution: all three estates had to be taxed and not just the commoners of the third estate; voting had to be done by population rather than by estate; the horrific leadership of King Louis XIV had to come to end.
Interest rates continued to rise in order to reduce inflation; this caused manufacturing and housing to weaken. The savings and loans industry suffered during this time. They experienced frequent account withdrawals, as depositors moved their money to higher-earning accounts offered by commercial banks. The savings and loans industry was already struggling, the recession only made it worse. High mortgage rates destroyed the value of mortgage-backed loans, which is the primary asset of the savings and loans association.
Over the past decade, the federal government has lost a considerable amount of money from student loan defaulters. This matter has raised countless questions about who should pay for these defaulted student loan amounts. Analysts argue that the tax dollars should be used to satisfy the losses since they will limit other students from accessing the same benefit (Rowan, 2013). Other individuals claim that using taxpayers’ money to pay in the event of student loan defaulters would encourage more defaults. This paper seeks to decisively discuss the pros and cons of whether tax money should be used to pay off loans backed by the federal government in the event that a borrower defaults on his or her student loan.
The USA is not a perfect place, and it isn’t even close to becoming on. With the Utopia act we’ll combat three areas of importance: Tax Rates, the absurd federal budget, and housing for the homeless. The ultimate premise of the bill is to get America in a Surplus, to a point where income is more than spending. We haven’t been in a surplus in almost 15 years, and every year things become all the more distraught. The major contributor of which is the wasteful budgeting of the Government.
He stated that the people were constantly changing in their attitudes and dispositions, and could not be trusted to make a sound judgement or do what was right for the nation. Hamilton would be the first Secretary of the Treasury, and proposed the First National Bank (Ulin, 2004). During his time as treasurer he worked tirelessly to erase the national debt brought upon by the Revolutionary War, and the United States’ need to borrow money from other nations to aid in its victory. One of his solutions to the debt problem was the implementation of a national tax program, and the proposition to create different methods of taxation. He also helped in the much needed establishment of credit with other nations, and founded the United States Mint (Green,

In addition, Germany had to reduce their army, so they couldn’t ready for the next battle. Because of those terms of the Treaty of Versailles Germany hated it a lot.

Decadent and incident denationalization processes turned over the major stately owned firms to politic "oligarchs", which has left equity ownership highly concentrated (Economy.gov.ru). Yeltsin's program of radical, oriented market reform is called as a "shock therapy".

One issue the Articles of Confederation had, was the major money issues inflicted upon the union which harmed the coherency of our country. During this time, the United States was millions of dollars in debt, and couldn’t find a way to compensate the money that had been borrowed.
