John McKnight author of the article titled “Why Servanthood is bad” describes what service means to him and his dislike on the concept of serving. In his article he talks about the dangerous actions of those who are considered “servers” of the community. One of the negative actions of serving is constantly stealing money from the poor. Half of the money that corresponds to low-income communities is stolen and given to the federal, state even county officials. A great example of this is tax money each person considered low income has to pay taxes and most of the time the government own these people money that they never will obtain back.

The authors bring out the emotion sympathy when they say, “Many families have exhausted their savings, and children are forced to work menial jobs instead of attending school” (“Refugees,” 2015). People feel bad for children in terrible situations because they are not yet fully grown and often do not understand their circumstances. In
Raymond Chandler’s cynical view, as shown in The Big Sleep, is that people will do whatever it takes to get money, and not many people can be trusted. This draws a parallel to the time period in which this novel was written in, The Great Depression. During this period, people were desperate to do whatever it takes in order to get money. Throughout the novel, people have shown the principle flaw in this view, doing anything to get money, even if it is considered illegal. This can be seen at various points where people attempt activities such as blackmailing the General, murdering Geiger for his business, and other forms of crime.
Germany went through a great depression, the government tried to make more money to make the depression go away but this was the worst thing the German government could have done.

People took advantage of their desperation, struggles and of their high hopes and dreams of a better life.

In Grapes of Wrath, money is a very important theme, that shows up in important moments in the book. The economic downfall, also known as the Great Depression, was a huge bellwether for how people acted in the 1930s. The fear of the inability to provide for oneself and his/her family drove the families to this struggle.
One of the main reasons socialism failed is because of the mentality of the community and the high percentage of illiteracy in which most of the community couldn 't read or understand Nyerere 's policies. According to this situation it 's obvious that the main aim of the government is the eradication of illiteracy. To be able to do so it’s apparent the government doesn 't have the means and the resources to educate its people, however the help of an external power will decrease illiteracy greatly which as well will end up reducing poverty in the country for thus countries help in educating they can get the privilege of investing in this country by building factories which will supply the community with jobs.

The stock prices decreased which caused people and businesses to lose their money. Seeing how the economy was so shaky, people began to lose confidence.
Little did anyone know, everything they did was gradually setting the country up for economic demise. 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.

At the time of The Great Depression, the US president was Herbert Hoover.
