The war had ruined the economies of the Allied nations, which had been limited to the production of armaments for the last four years. A terrible product to invest a nation’s entire economy, weapons could only be used during times of war, serving no other purpose than this, and so the Allied nations looked on at their weapon stockpiles and groaned at the money wasted, as their economies entered a period of decline. To make matters worse, the total death toll of the Great War and the Spanish Influenza that followed it numbered in the tens of millions, a loss of life that meant Europe’s economies had been robbed of the talents and brains of an entire generation of young men.

Obama had displayed hypocrisy during his presidency, when he had sent bombs overseas and after, when he insulted the nation’s wealthiest people, only to become one. Another example was that of Hillary Clinton offering to send troops to places she previously did not mention and using charity funds to fuel her campaign. In addition to her, Donald Trump had made an election promise to build a wall but has never gotten a plan to do so. Also, he launched missiles overseas, even when he had previously said he would boycott that method. These are just a few of the reasons former President Barack Obama, Former First Lady Hillary Clinton, and Current President Donald Trump are all prime examples of this generations political leaders and their stances on hypocrisy.
Cities around the world bid millions for the chance of hosting the world’s greatest athletic event: the Olympic Games. Tokyo, Japan spent $150 million to bid for its spot as the 2016 Summer Olympics host, but it ended up losing that bid and the millions of dollars (McBride 5).

dollars. Twenty percent of that goes to the Middle East, which should be an exceptionally great deal for them, but . In 2014, it was reported that all 3.1 billion U.S. dollars that were donated to Israel all went into military spending.
