The Captains of Industry were certainly one of the most important factors in the development of United States in the period directly after the Civil War. While there is some merit to the argument that the industrial leaders were Robber Barons that did more harm than good, their contributions to American society clearly outweigh those negatives. The Captains of Industry quite literally revolutionized the American way of life that gave the U.S. the highest standard of living in the world prior to the outbreak of World War I. This was made possible due to the emergence of corporations in areas such as finance, steel, oil, and railroads. When these men combined with other factors, such as the mechanization of agriculture, immigration, migration,
When compared to the exorbitant rate that Mansa Musa gave the tradesmen of Cairo it clearly indicates his massive wealth and provides testimony to the fact that he was indeed the richest man in history. Moreover, the actual rate may have been even higher as the book, Medieval West Africa, says that Mansa Musa “paid them back amply” (p.61). Many may say that Mansa Musa was wrong to give such a high rate, however, we clearly see the benefits of it from the accounts in the book given about him. Those who cam into contact with Mansa Musa praise him highly and that praise, prestige, and wealth would have been extended to his people and kingdom as well. Therefore, the kingdom of Mali would become better known around the world and start to appear on more maps.
This means buying property at a discount and then selling it to you at a higher amount, of "flipping" the property, often for a hefty profit margin. Following that, the turn-key company can make an additional profit by managing the sale or rental of the single-property property for you. One thing to remember about this drawback, though, is that turn-key companies often have a marketing machine running at all times and can find incredible deals in their market, allowing them to give you a great deal even as the company makes its
Although many citizens viewed capitalists as “Captains of Industry,” they can also, just as easily, be seen as “Robber Barons.” Even though railroads were beneficial to society, they were not without corruption, as shown by the Credit Mobilier scandal. This was a railroad company that paid itself huge sums of money for small railroad construction. In fact, it received twenty-three million dollars in profit. Moreover, the railroad industry could be seen as completely insincere and dishonest because of its monopoles. Another broader view of industry was that the poor was becoming more impoverished and the rich were gaining more fame.
1 Bernard Ebbers leadership is charismatic and transactional leadership.

However, my argument stays that fracking is a great practice for economical growth as well as having abundance of clean energy in the U.S. if practiced correctly. Fracking offers the U.S. an incredible source of natural gas and domestic energy. Since the introduction of fracking, natural gas production has increased. Through this increase of natural gas, the U.S. has been able to gain greater energy independence and has also supported the U.S. economy with growing natural gas firms and Fracking drilling
When we raise money up to the point of idolatry and convince ourselves that it is the key to happiness we can always find a way to justify the worst of actions. Most of the wealthiest people in our society have probably had to do some questionable deeds to stay wealthy. Our society seems to view this as a necessary evil to rise to the top, but that is justified in the end. President Trump has been continually praised for his dealmaking and financial success, while his questionable morals have been repeatedly justified as a result. This is just one example of how success has come to be defined by how much money you make, no matter how you made

As a daughter of immigrant parents, I know first hand about how dedicated immigrants are, and the difficulties it would cause to send them back to their former country. Illegal immigrants should be allowed to become citizens. Not only do they boost our economy greatly, they cost too much money to deport, and they take the jobs that many of us don’t. It is important that we allow legalization for the illegal immigrants that come to this country because it benefits our economy, it is too expensive to deport them, and they are responsible for many of our labor intensive and unwanted jobs. To begin with, granting illegal immigrants with citizenship will boost our economy.
