Rockefeller’s impact on the United States cause the U.S. government to create new laws and acts to prevent unfair business tactics and promote the idea of capitalism. During Rockefeller’s time in the oil industry he at one point controlled about 90% of U.S. pipelines and refineries. Statistics show that Rockefeller was very successful, however, he was not the most ethical businessman. He created the first monopoly by unethical practices such as colluding with railroads and using predatory pricing to rid himself of competition and take the idea of capitalism away from other aspiring oil businessmen. In Rockefeller’s mind, however, he was not being unfair he; was rather just using effective business techniques.

Steve Jobs and Stephen King both employ the idea of death to inspire their audience to strive for greatness while taking chances and to give back money where it belongs, respectively; however, Jobs uses simple and complex sentence with formal language to convey his message with short, easy-to-remember business mottos while King balances mostly informal and formal language, with both complex and simple sentences as well to increase the effectiveness of their arguments. They approach their mottos in different ways but are both individually successful due to their backgrounds, as Jobs has a background in business, strengthening his business-like mottos and King has a more relatable background as an “everyday guy,” strengthening his informal mottos,
Loman vs Allaparthi: Opportunities Towards Success Despite the fact that my parents starkly differ from the Loman family in terms of our beliefs of achievement, they seem to embody Willy Loman’s desire for opportunities based on the multiple times my family has moved. Willy views achievement in a materialistic sense, one that involves him chasing after the idea of being able to secure wealth and establish a reputation through being a salesman. He was inspired by Dave Singleman to continue his efforts in the sale industry as he believed that nothing “could be more satisfying than to be able to go, at the age of eighty-four, into twenty or thirty different cities…. and be remembered and loved…” (Miller 81).
Remembering our past oversights was necessary in order to avoid repeating past mistakes over and over again. This saying originated from George Santayana’s famous quotable quotes, “Those who fail to heed the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them in the future.” Based on my own personal experience, I failed to listen with my father’s advice that education should have been my top priority when I was young. Then, he gave me the same old lectures when I was much older and was laid off from work multiple times. My father also provided me several warnings that technology will eventually take over my profession in the Travel Industry.
Furthermore, a business leader who increased productivity, expanded markets, provided more jobs, or showed acts of philanthropy were considered captains of industry. One example is John D. Rockefeller who combined his many oil corporations that he already owned into the Standard Oil Trust. Creating the Standard Oil Trust made Rockefeller’s products cheaper for the public, it provided many jobs to workmen and it “paid the best wages,” according to Document 2. While pursuing the gain of wealth, Rockefeller positively helped the country grow. Another example of a captain of industry was Andrew Carnegie.
Charismatic can be learnt. Uncle Lim had the ability to bring the people together.

These men wanted to stem off and make a land where they can feel free. These men were passionate about making a better world just like some of the immigrants today. In the article”Issue: Naturalized Citizens as United States Presidents”, it states,”The history of the United States is replete with scores of great and patriotic Americans whose dedication to this country is beyond reproach, but who happen to have been born outside of Her borders…. More than 700 recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor—our Nation’s highest decoration for valor—have been immigrants”(Document A). This quote show that immigrants are getting the same achievements as americans but they are not getting the rights to run for president.
3.3 Leading The founder of ZARA, Amancio Ortega is known for his leadership skills as that has contributed a big part to his success. His success depicts a leader with a strong vision and is clear about their purposes at all times. It is said that he was an autocratic leader first where the concentration of power was focused on him. But once his business ascended, and his reputation became superior, his leadership style transformed to a democratic way of leadership.
Leadership style When we talk about leadership, we must think about people who already success in their career.

I believe that the US has done a relatively decent job the forward thinking of presidents like Nixon, Truman, Roosevelt and Johnson cemented the US position on the global stage. However the inability to stop the takeover of the Defense industry and industrial influence in our political system as Eisenhower warned is troublesome. I believe that the shorted sightedness of our leaders led to deregulation that benefited the leaders of industry and that will only get worse as the expansion of US industries into third world countries, this expansion will give each country a small say in policies as presidential candidates are financed by industry leaders. Thus preventing elected leaders from implementing regulation that will control or prevent global economic crisis or military engagements in order to protect industrial interests in foreign

This shows the changes because in previous years the public would have been dead set against it because they would feel that it was moving closer towards communist ideas. There are other factors that show people 's ideals did not change like how FDR told people about the new deal. He was purposely vague about what the new deal would entail.
As soon as President Johnson refused to give federal money to segregated schools, the schools opened up very quickly. Eisenhower should have enforced that during his presidency. Had he chosen his words and actions more carefully, the country may not have been in such upheaval in the late 1950s and 1960s. (Urofsky, Seminar) The Supreme Court decision did not get at the root of the racial problem brought on by the Jim Crow laws.
