Trickle-down theory hypothesized that if the government took care of the rich and powerful, the wealth would then begin to benefit the rest of the community. Instead of benefitting everyone, the rich just got richer and everyone else got nothing. Since the wealthy continue to be the only people to see these benefits, their version of the American dream has evolved into something unrealistic for a profitable economy. In the article, The Evolution of the American Dream, O’Mara quotes James Adams, a Pulitzer Prize winning historian who states, “It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages…” (2). Since the American dream has gotten out of reach from 90 percent of the population, the rich keep profiting while everyone else continues to lose hope in the idea of a successful life.
It sounds very sinister for me to even think about that, but it is true. Research shows that developing countries that have invested in family planning, smaller families and slower population growth have achieved higher productivity, more savings and more productive investment (IrishTimes). With little population comes stronger economic. This results in a chance for the poor to become part of the middle class that countries like the United States and Great Britain have. Poverty of course is a bad thing, but it can help control our population, that is also a whole other issue.
The Republicans allowed 'trusts'. Trusts were very large corporations, or businesses, which controlled almost all of a certain industry. Many people did not like these trusts as they did not want one corporation to control an entire industry, but the Republican Party said that a corporation would do business better than a politician. These trusts were very important in causing this economic growth. There were also problems with the policies.
Clearly there’s an imbalance basic human rights. The more assistance poor nations get from the wealthy ones the more labour they have to produce. Businesses and companies gain from this because labour with low salaries, no health costs or unions to protect them are involved. Overpopulation has brought about an imbalance socially, economically and environmentally. In some countries such as China and Iran, the government has tried to regulate their populations.
As stated in the text,”In truth, it is more than a coin—it is a piece of American culture.” Even though the penny has some culture, culture is nothing compared to losing money the losing money part is way more important than just being part of American culture. This shows how people can hold onto the smallest things for the dumbest reasons. Another thing stated in the text was,”Still, for many people, the penny's sentimental value remains the same.” Even though the penny may have some sentimental value the government is losing a ton of money minting new pennies because they cost more than they have in value. This shows that pennies may have value to some people but not enough to compensate for the money lost by the government for minting a penny. All in all some people believe that pennies are worth minting, but they are just of waste of
There are just few things that both people and companies want and that is to make money. Companies want to make a profit to survive and become stronger and grow. Then you have people or employees they just want to make money to provide for their families. The nations minimum wage right now is low and many people struggle to provide for their families, and then the companies they work for are getting richer and so are their leadership, but the employees are still low or at a minimum pay rate. Which side will win, many states and politicians want the higher minimum wage.
Abstract Motivation is an inner strength that motivates a person to move toward a personal or structural goal. There are pros and cons to everything, especially in business and having a manager position. Companies are willing to invest in motivating their employees because in the end it affects the organization. Therefore, the problem is organizations not being able to distinguish the signs of workers that are un-motivated and consequently know that something is wrong. Despite companies knowing the importance of having a motivated workforce, many continue to deliberately ignore it and as a result they pay the price Leadership and Motivation For various companies having a motivated workforce is not usually a priority because the expenses associated with it, for example bonuses or company outings.
• Capitalism Under the system of capitalism the rich become richer and the poor become poorer, this is because the rich use their money to improve their own lives and not give sufficient payment to the lower class. Thus this one of the main causes of uneven distribution of wealth in society • Religious point of view The inclination of people towards their respective religion is decreasing. Judaism, Islam and Christianity teach their respective followers that charity is an obligation and that it has great reward. But because people are becoming more modernized and their inclination towards religion is now less, only a few of them give charity. As all those who are privileged do not pay taxes and charity money, the states fail to distribute the wealth equally in society, because the money which belongs to the wealthy remains with them.
Disadvantages of Multinational Corporations: • Potential Abuse of Workers Multinational companies often invest in developing countries where they can take advantage of cheaper labour. Some multinational corporations prefer to put up branches in these parts of the world where there are no demanding policies in labour and where people need jobs because these multinationals can demand for cheaper labour and lower standard in healthcare benefits. • Threat to Local Businesses Another disadvantage of multinational corporations in other countries is that they have the potential to dominate the market. These giant corporations can dominate the markets they are in because they have the more renowned products and they can afford to even sell them at lower prices since they have the financial resources to buy in a much larger quantity. This can devour all the other small businesses offering the same goods and services.
Thus, more in-depth social engagement usually does not correspond to what shareholders expect manager to practice on behalf of the business but they rather want their agents to concentrate on profit generating. However, managers can decide as a person in their own rights to engage in societal valuable projects with their private resources. In their role as a manager though, they have to aim at profit maximization of the business and the shareholders (Friedman, 1970). Hence, companies will not comply with basic requirements of the principals if they invest in social projects without a clear
