On one of the most devastating days in economic history, the stock market crashed with the value of the dollar being useless. Many families were left without any warning, losing any of their savings placed in stocks. People started to worry, rushing to the banks to withdraw quickly whatever money they had left to make sure they didn 't lose anything else. Banks were closing faster than people could get to them, leaving people with nothing. The people who did grasp their money spent less on items that they needed because prices skyrocketed, which in return got people getting laid off from their jobs, worsening the economy and losing even more money.

For example, immigration reform has been being considered since past President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, as stated by The Washington Post (Nakamura, O’Keefe 4). In the past six years the progress in advancing immigration reform has been miniscule because the drastically different opinions on how severe the reform should be. Some people, mainly liberals, disagree wholly with immigration reform because it contradicts the American ideal of all people, no matter their race, religion or gender, being welcome in the country, as well as, the distinction between refugees and immigrants. Others believe that, to continue to prosper, America can only solve American problems and to take on the responsibility of more people is detrimental to America’s wellbeing. And despite immigration being considered a “national crisis”, the Senate still, through a vote, prevented the progress of a bill that
Healthcare is still a major issue today and seems to be prone to gridlocking. Now remember, most examples you will find a president involved but not always. In 2017, Republicans take on changing the health-care industry was for each senator to find the best solution for his or her state. The most perilous rift sits between Republicans from states that accepted the federal funding to enlarge Medicaid coverage to millions more Americans, and those from states that turned down that expansion. Earlier I mentioned how many do not look at congress as a business, but indulge in emotions to fix an issue.
The Western Roman Empire fell in the year 476 A.D, there were many factors contributing to the fall of the Empire, such as unconcerned citizens, population, expansion, religion, economic, slave labor, and the military. In Document 1 it states that people gave up on the Roman Empire and didn’t believe it was worth saving. Citizens weren’t allowed to take part in politics and were excluded from their own army. The government slowly lost support which increased the level of government fraud. Also, population decline was a big factor to the fall of Rome; it had decreased from 1,000,000 people to 250,000.
The Great Crash generally refers to the stock market crash (in America - Wall Street) on 29 October, 1929. It started on Thursday, 23 October when just before the 3:00 pm bell rang, the stock prices instantly fell. For the following week stocks fell lower and faster and changed hands so fast, the machines that kept track of these stocks seemed unable to cope up with the activity. All along while President Herbert Hoover reassured the people of America that the nation was “on a sound and prosperous basis”, more panic spread and because the uncertainty and risk was rising, people wanted their money back. In all this frenzy the United States Securities Regulation agencies could have shut down the market but they feared that would only spread more fear and could have led to a violent display of the emotions of the public.
This is portrayed in the Obama speech, “Believing in things unseen; believing in what this country might be; standing up for that belief and fighting when it 's hard.” People of all diversities unite for a common ideal shared within the American Dream. However, in the Ronald Reagan speech, “Countries across the globe are turning away from the ideologies of the past.” The quote says countries across the globe, this includes a wide variety of differences. Suggesting they are turning away from a common ideal or past
I expect to find there was a drop in tourists visiting New York after 9/11 as people were fearful another attack might take place in the city and I expect that tourist numbers to the city dropped in the months directly after before starting to pick up again. I presume this was a tough time economically for hotels and many of the shops dependent on tourism. I expect airlines suffered from large losses as people were afraid to fly until changes in security were made. I expect to find airlines had to drop the prices of flights significantly to attract customers. I also expect to see many similar things happening now in
