According to (document d) , mortgages lenders had raised prices on mortgages across America. In result, Americans were are unable to afford the cost of the mortgage and the mortgage lenders cannot get repaid. Therefore the lenders and their consumers were both at fault. The government's response to this situation was to pass the Affordable housing act. This act benefits buyers and lenders because it allows the buyers who are looking for housing even low income families to find housing within their budget.
When Theodore Roosevelt saw that trusts, or monopolies, were cheating millions of Americans, he did not stand by idly; he aggressively utilized the Sherman Antitrust Act to break up monopolies, causing some to mock him as the “trust-buster.” When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was faced with the worst economic recession in American history, he did not utilize moderate, monetarist economic policies; he passed what many would consider to be the most aggressively liberal economic policies in American history in the New Deal, which created programs like Social Security and the minimum wage, even though most of the New Deal was controversial and parts would be struck down by the Supreme
First, tariffs worsened the Great Depression because increased taxes made it harder for people to buy products from out of country. According to document 7, the “Senate ‘Farm Bloc’ Starts battle for higher taxes”.

Poverty; a word that is commonly used so often when it comes to individuals being a low classed, low income, American citizen who struggle to find success and an efficient job that pays well. In Barbara Ehrenreich’s article It Is Expensive to Be Poor, published in the online news article company The Atlantic, on January 13,2014, she argues that those who are struggling to support their own family or find an efficient well paying job are obtaining no support from the self-centered government. Ehrenreich also tries to inform the readers that those who are in poverty are treated unfairly and unjust. Through Ehrenreich’s argumentative article, she tries to persuade the readers through reasoning, credible personal background and history, as well as emotional appeals. In Ehrenreich’s article, she starts off the article by informing the audience of a President named Lyndon B. Johnson who promised to create a better environment or economic help to those who are in poverty.
Which leads to the rebuttal of the argumentative piece, “Curiously, most members of Congress who take a hard line on immigration also strongly oppose increasing the minimum wage, claiming it will hurt businesses and reduce jobs” (Dukakis & Mitchell, 2006). Nonetheless the authors have an exception to this rebuttal, that is if “We want to reduce illegal immigration, it makes sense to reduce the abundance of extremely low-paying jobs that fuels it. If we raise the minimum wage, it’s possible some low- end jobs may be lost; but more Americans would also be willing to work in such jobs, thereby denying them to people who aren’t supposed to be here in the first place” Assuming that most american citizens are going to work, they would take up all the jobs provided out there, assuming that the minimum wage went up and they would be payed better (Dukakis & Mitchell,
As you can see, changing the Australian flag isn 't the best option for our county. By changing the flag, it would become confusing for people to recognise it because the current flag is all we know. It would be very expensive, and that money could be used on better things. And finally, by changing the flag we would be disrespectful to those who have fought under it so that our nation is what it is today. As the Sydney Morning Herald states, "A flag is meant to be a symbol that endures even as the nation changes.
Firstly, the banks hugely increased the market for synthetic CDO’s. This is borderline illegal and should be illegal but isn’t. These were a huge contribution to why the housing market collapsed. Secondly, mortgage brokers are seen giving out multiple million dollar loans to anyone and they were actually targeting people they knew couldn’t afford it. This is illegal and very unethical.
This would have cost them lots of money to rebuild everything again and would have taken a long time to regrow the environment to how it was before.

Example, Malaysia is a country with growing economy and general rules which effect Maybank would be interest rates. It would be difficult for the loaners to pay back the money if the interest rates is set too high. Then, most of Malaysian people bankrupt due to paying loans with high interest. This will not benefit Maybank because the money has been loaned out has not return in. So, Maybank is now giving out loans to boost the export activity for exporting activity.

People believed that the new parliament would be costly to set up to it would be too expensive, making taxes higher for the people. Others were only fond of people in their own colonies and not of others from a different colony. Similarly, people from smaller colonies were afraid that states such as New South Wales and Victoria would take over their trade relations and affect their trading routes. On the other side New South Wales and Victoria were also worried that if Australia was to become one then they would be burdened by the financial problems of the smaller colonies. Although some believed that Federation would help keep the non-white immigrants out of Australia, others believed that if Australia were to be united then the law would become looser on the non-white immigrants and it would allow more of them into Australia.
There is a need for a review of the entitlements system of Members of Parliament. There needs to be an independent review into the extravagant and full-of-flaw entitlements system. Members of Parliament should not abuse their privilege as the representatives and servants of the Australian people in the Australian Parliament. The review must suggest and try to enforce changes to the system such as: reducing the salary of parliamentarians, reducing the extravagance of entitlements in general to be within the public expectations, limiting the number of flights MPs are entitled to and downgrade the flights to economy class, making changes in other areas of travel expenses, reducing the pension of former MPs to an acceptable level, and scrapping the Life Gold Pass. The politicians who have misused the entitlement system and ripped off Australian taxpayers of millions of dollars must be prosecuted and punished in the manner appropriate for fraudsters.
This lack of being able to work together to make benefiting legislation lead to the deadlock of congress. This deadlock hurts the countries in many ways. For example, Congress and President Obama is not able to come together and figure out a way to help the economy through an infrastructure initiative. The country’s infrastructure is crumbling, and the energy infrastructure is outdated (Atlantic) Passing legislation to improve our country 's infrastructure will have a large amount of unemployed construction workers, employed again. This in turn stimulates the economy.
Minimum wage should not be raised because it is not an income that someone sold live off of. Minimum wage in the country is currently $7.25 but some states have changed it in a way that is way too much. For example Washington state currently has the highest minimum wage at $9.32 that’s a $2.07 increase to the current amount minimum wage. Seattle is currently considering to raise their minimum wage to $15 it’s understandable that the city is very large and things cost more money but if they raise minimum wage to $15 that will only bring inflation causing things to cost only more money than it already does. If there is one thing that should not be done to the country it is to cause inflation.
To some, the American Dream seems unimaginable. In fact, many believe that it is quite improbable that anyone could experience their own American Dream due to government restrictions that may seem to prohibit their growth. In a survey conducted by ORC International, around 6 in every 10 Americans believe that the American Dream is no longer available to them (Lubhy). Restrictions that make those surveyed feel as though the American Dream is impossible include the worsening economy and the rising costs of college tuitions (Lubhy). To be more specific on the economic concern, many believe that most of the American government’s money goes
