This affected the nation significantly, as the population decreases, not much children would grow up to work for the nation, thus creating less income and therefore not increasing the nation’s GDP as much as it can. The numbers of immigrants accepted into Canada dropped to less than 12,000 in the 1935 from 169,000 in 1929, thats over 1400% loss in immigrants. The amount of immigrants accepted into Canada never rose above 17,000 for the remainder of the decade. The number of deportations, however, rose from fewer than 2,000 people in 1929 to more than 7,600 in just under four years. In addition to the deportations, approximately 30,000 immigrants were forcibly returned to their original countries over the course of the decade, this was predominately due to illness or unemployment.
In 2010, 15.75 million of America’s 70 million children were classified as living in poverty. Countries have attempted to end poverty for many years now but it seems that the numbers continue to increase.

Many think that the welfare system is only hurting the American economy.
From the beginning of time governments have been ruled by kings and only for kings while the people payed taxes and were never allowed to speak out in government. In 1776 this all changed when the Declaration of Independence was signed cutting all political connections to Great Britain and becoming an independent nation. Carrie points out that the government states that “Taxation without representation is tyranny” although women who also pay taxes are not allowed to have a voice in the government. The people’s beliefs are the foundation of the authority of the government. Carrie states that our government has failed to follow these two principles of democratic government.
He tells Blake that mixed blood is not respected by Native Americans. As child he was taken east to Toronto, Philadelphia and New York and finally to England by white people. There he received western education. Nobody is the one who sees in Blake the reincarnation of the English poet and painter William Blake (1757 – 1827, London (Bataille 67)) and also a killer of white men. These are the two forced roles that Bill Blake adapts in the course of the film.
In the article “The Crime Bust” by Gordon Witkin, it is introduced that in 1994, after a 9 year soar in crime rates, they began falling (1). According to preliminary figures released by the FBI, all across the board, the amount of crime committals were declining at a drastic rate. (Witkin 1). To determine the source of this sudden decline, several factors were examined, such as the economy, dismissed as “Robbery and burglary fluctuate with economic conditions--but murders generally do not…” (Witkin, 1-2) Prevention and domestic abuse were also discredited since “Studies show that prevention programs don’t work, and others may or may not be effective…” and “...in 1996, there were only 447 fewer ‘domestics’ than in 1993, accounting for just 9 percent of the murder reduction.” (Witkin 2) From there, Witkin begins to analyze the connection between the crime decrease and harsher prison sentencing and smarter policing (Witkin 2) As stated by Witkin, “Imprisonment...seems to be important, but not the underlying cause of the crime drop…” and while “...smarter policing was spectacularly decisive in some cities… it probably was not the key factor nationwide.” (Witkin 3-4).
During 1933, the average family income dropped to $1,500, less than 1929 which was $2,300 and many families lost their savings as a lot of banks collapsed (Bryson). “The Depression and World War II dramatically reshaped the nation’s income distribution: By 1944 the top 1%’s share was down to 11.3%, while the bottom 90% were receiving 67.5%, levels that would remain more or less constant for the next three decades”
According to Dadabhai Naoroji’s article, “The Benefits of British Rule for India”, the Indians/natives had no voice in the taxes, legislations, or were qualified to earn the position of a court judge or high-ranking government official. The society the British constructed blocked the Indians out, and openly disregarded their opinions and desire for change and equality. Some may claim that the British modernized their country by reforming the natives education system, and implementing new innovations and technological advancements, like railroads to improve transportation within the country. However, according to the article written by Professor Peter Marshall titled, “The British Presence in India in the 18th Century,” the majority of these systems primarily focused on English and Western ideas, rather than their own distinctive culture. The traditional ideas and beliefs focusing on theory and methodology, that were implemented into their previous education system, were then modified to a practical approach, forcing their pre-existing system to slowly descend into oblivion.
