Gatsby comes from an unwealthy background surviving with barely anything and no one to rely on. Since he is motivated to finally have a chance at being accepted by Daisy, he starts his own bootlegging business and while discussing with Nick, Gatsby stands in satisfaction; “It took me just three years to earn the money that bought it” (90). Gatsby earned all his success in that little of time and all on his own. Although it was an illegal business, it still takes an enormous amount of work and stamina to earn that much money and make a successful living in a short amount of
As American industry began to increase, and the economy was prospering, the labor market became competitive as new technologies were replacing certain jobs that were previously needed. Ideas of labor and what a proper “American” work ethic was began to become extremely popular in society as labor competition increased. “The Strenuous Life,” was presented in 1899 by Roosevelt—right at the boom of the industrial and technological revolution. As Roosevelt discussed many ideas of what “real” American men and women were, he continued into discussing what an American work ethic should be, saying that he wished to preach “the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, or labor and strife.” This idealized American work ethic was not necessarily painted as being easy; it was one of perseverance, hard work, and strife. As these ideas were spread throughout the nation, they encouraged Americans to actively practice them.
Revolution is a rapid push for change within government, culture, and society. In this case the industrial revolution was a change in which materials were created obtained. The industrial revolution didn’t just add changes to the British economy, but it most noticeably changed the infrastructure of the country. Thousands of factories and railroads popped up all over the nation, such rapid growth pushed for a bigger demand for resources to maintain the factories, so a movement was created. A movement within a nation is a push for change based on the current necessities in a society.
“Their close relationship finally results in Nick 's decision to have Gatsby 's story told in the first place. His caring personality is very visibly reflected also in Nick 's first and last name” (Avsenak). Nick is the ‘carr’ taker of Gatsby; helping him during and after his life. Nick feels privileged to be friends with Gatsby since he does not have as much wealth as him. Nick came from the Midwest and lives in a nice house with a good job; there is really nothing special or exciting about him.
This let us exist in an epoch ‘when the walls started falling all around the world, and integration, and the backlash to it, went to a whole new level’ as what Friedman says in his book. In the international arena, globalization had undeniably become the soul of every state to maintain its connections to other states as evident but more than that, we can also see individuals being affected by this so called ‘world-changer’. As every individual become more curious and intelligent, they consider themselves to compete and share with others of different cultures, religions, philosophies, businesses, races, and even languages to all people around the globe. Obviously, we live in a world of competition. The indication alone covers us in accepting and going with the flow of the new
Starting at the bottom of the social classes, Rockefeller was able to finish high school, and took a single business class at a local college (Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica, 1999). In later years, Rockefeller would create his own company, which bought and sold food. Who knew that in the following years Rockefeller would become one of the biggest names in the oil industry.

As stated by Korte, the “fictional representation” of journalists “has unfolded in a wide range of modes”. It is the emphasize of “positive and negative stereotypes” this paper set its main focus on. The “figures with an aura of adventure, romance and heroism but also professional recklessness” (cf. Korte) get introduced through the characterization of Rufus and Zaq and maintained during the whole storyline. The two characters embody the conflict between the idealistic and disillusioned point of view on the human rights and environmental abuses as journalists since, as Korte states, “audiences flooded with images and news bites from wars all over the globe and on a daily basis seem to be in particular need of a personal interpreter” which Habila provides through these reporters.
He told Nick he inherited great wealth, but in reality, Gatsby gained his wealth on his own. Even though Gatsby lied, the fact that he made himself what he was makes him even that much greater. When Gatsby was still James Gatz, he had a dream of leaving his life on the farm behind and become part of the upper-class. Even Gatsby 's father knew when he said, "If he 'd lived, he 'd of been a great man." (Fitzgerald, F. S., & Bruccoli, M. J.
