In America, 2.3 million people are in prison. American has the highest prison population in the world. This is due to “tough on crime laws” that have been enforced since the 1960’s. Although these laws do help keep crime off the street, they have done more harm than good for our country. Mass incarceration is a major issues in America, it leads to poverty, broken families, money wasted, and many other problems.
They would not only cover basic contracting services but also completely manage and operate entire prisons. In the last three decades, states struggling financially to operate prisons turned to private companies for help under the auspice that private companies can operate prisons more efficiently and “eliminate wasteful bureaucracy that often characterizes government” (Brickner, et al, 2011). The assertion is that outsourcing the responsibility of running a prison to a private contractor, and states only paying based on occupancy, meant states could significantly reduce their costs. In 1984
Distilleries were being shutdown due to the ban of production of alcohol. Railroads lost products to distribute, therefore, profit was lost. Stores where alcohol was sold had less product to sell, therefore, money was being lost. Since alcohol had a high tax, the tax revenue decreased tremendously, which caused more government spending.

Zach Bova Professor Leguizamo Core LLC: Human Behavior in Perspective 20 October 2015 Summary of “The New Jim Crow” In Michelle Alexander’s book “The New Jim Crow” she analyzes how there is a pattern of young black men getting incarcerated because of the war on drugs, and how the policies that have been set by the federal government are discriminatory. She is suggesting that law enforcement is abusing their power in black communities and that the war on drugs is actually giving them the right to do so. With these policies set in place police are allowed to stop and search a person if they believe that they look suspicious in any way.
Where for example if a wealthy person gets into a fight usually they say “well oh boys will be boys”. If we were to see that happen with a poor person specifically from the hood he would then be seen as a “thug”. People in society tend to think that these type of things are okay and they become the norm. These types of things are not okay and makes one realize how important money really is and how much it can contribute to certain situations.
If there was ever an unethical company, Providian is it. Providian defrauded millions of dollars from its customers. If I recall this correctly, in the film it had two entrepreneurs with a business called “People First Recoveries”. The two buy bad debt from all over the country in hopes of one day making huge profits and for them to attempt to collect their money they have peoples’ personal information they use against them. That’s another thing I found unethical.
Just as Roosevelt did, it places the blame for the Great Depression on the dynastically wealthy. However, the comedic approach is not as direct and is not taken as serious as Roosevelt’s attack. It even makes the viewer somewhat sympathetic towards the Ball family. The patriarch of the Ball family, J.B. Ball is one of the richest bankers in America. During this time, bankers were hated by most Americans.
In The Great Gatsby there are two kinds of wealth, old money and new money. Those with new money often times “earned it” illegally by bootlegging alcohol to towns and cities throughout the United States. The wealthy with old money inherited it from past generations of oil salesmen, factory owners, or inventors. Whether they inherited the money or got hold of it illegally they 're all the same. They waste it
The United States Government spends a lot of money($75 billion) on locking people up and helping big businesses than helping prisoners. Many prisoners probably spend hours, days, or probably months in solitary confinement. Once they get out of solitary confinement the prisoners behavior changes like they won’t talk to no one and they just rather be by themselves cause they can’t be around big groups of people cause that 's what solitary confinement does to the mind of people. Haney’s research has shown “that many prisoners in supermax units experience extremely high levels of anxiety and other negative emotions.
Factories were producing more than people could purchase, therefore losing many materials and money. Plus the government was giving out loans that people couldn’t pay back, which gradually brought debt throughout the country. Political wrong-doings, unhealthily high productivity rates, unequal distribution of America’s assets; these were all things that seemed good at the time, but proved to be more bad than good as it led America into its darkest time: The great Depression. At the time of The Great Depression, the US president was Herbert Hoover.

All of them were in it for the money and only cared to give back at the end of their lives when they didn’t need it anymore. They justified this under Social Darwinism and the Gospel of Wealth, but the general public didn’t see eye to eye on their
Warren G. Harding’s inability to generate an opinion led to his poor presidency, and it should have been clear to both his political party and the public that he was not the right man for the job. It was not just his indecisiveness that made him ill-suited for the job, however, his reliance on delegation allowed his cabinet to take advantage of him. Along with that, his pro-business policy only ushered in economic prosperity for a short amount of time, but inevitably caused an economic depression so terrible that an entire decade was decimated by it. Most importantly, however, what made him a terrible president was his lack of interest in the job, and because he was unenthusiastic about the presidency, he was unable to understand the importance
Coates saw the system and not the individual as responsible. Ta-Nehesi Coates ability to make the reader feel these events and emotions makes a psychological impact on many as it did the author himself. Living through the words of the author and feeling the experience. All these events make the reader question, what kind of country is America that it can make a reasonable person like me live in perpetual fear for my life, and for a better future alongside the thought whether that future can be obtained. Between the author and reader’s self-examination and critical interrogation of the world, concerns with questions as much as the answers do as
