Fitzgerald reveals the idea of corruption in the American Dream through conditions such as wealth and materialism, power and social status, and relationships involving family and affairs. He uses examples of this corruption to show the reader that people are willing to lie, betray others, and commit crime to be able to live a ‘better and fuller’ life. The need for money and materialism throughout The Great Gatsby shows the decay of the American Dream.
If a citizen turned in a perceived runaway slave, he or she received compensation from the government. Burns fell victim to both the racism and greed in a person resulting directly from the immoral law. Just as Anthony Burns’ life was ruined by an immoral law, criminals have their life terminated as a result of capital punishment. Although criminals should be properly reprimanded based on the severity of their crimes, the death penalty is a highly immoral solution passed to deliver such punishment. Convicts are wronged by this law because they are forcibly murdered for their actions rather than making efforts to reform their lives.
Legal tolls were placed on vessels carrying tobacco goods as a form of tax, but some officials like Captain Crofts placed illegal tolls on vessels to make extra money. “It was the force of government that enabled the royal treasury to collect a legal toll and officers like Captain Crofts an illegal toll on tobacco trade” (Morgan 204). The corrupt royal navy officers and Virginians serving in colonial government exploited their authority and found ways to make easy money from the tobacco trade. The corrupt officials imposed illegal taxes, which not only affected plant owners but also the farmers and other lower class citizens involved in the tobacco trade. This shows that people during the colonial times were greedy and exploiting each other for money that came from the tobacco market.
He defines fraud as willful deception and believes it to be one of the worst sins. He says, “Since fraud belongs exclusively to man, God hates it more and, therefore, far below, the fraudulent are placed and suffer most.” (XI. 25-27). Dante does not name any specific souls in this circle but does claim that many bankers are in this circle. It can be assumed that these bankers committed fraud in some way that allowed them to profit.

In this paper I am going to explain and describe the three perspectives described in this prompt. Perspective one “ Individuals could not possibly hope to solve problems as large as the ones we face today. Only large governments with sizable resources can help.” This is basically saying that the individuals can not solve any of the problems we have today but that only the government is able to fix these. The person that has this perspective thinks that the people and their communities can not do anything to help poverty along with all of the other issues. They think that only the government can help to fix these issues that we have.

The company Pfizer was found guilty of making illegal payments through subsidiaries “to foreign officials in Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Serbia to obtain regulatory approvals, sales, and increased prescriptions for its products” (“SEC Charges Pfizer…”, 2012, p.1). Not only were they making these payments secretly, but they were obtaining business without letting competitors know, which is a monopoly being formed through information asymmetry. There is also the case of Alliance One and Universal Corporation, where they were found guilty of making secret payments as well to Thailand to illegally get tobacco sales (“Sec Charges Two Global Tabaco Companies…”, 2010, p.1). This is a case where negative externalities are causing a monopoly. The introduction of monopolies through information asymmetry or negative externalities cause market failure for the Unites States, because it is hurting society and competitors are unaware of other firm’s doings when making their decisions.
