To make matters worse, the total death toll of the Great War and the Spanish Influenza that followed it numbered in the tens of millions, a loss of life that meant Europe’s economies had been robbed of the talents and brains of an entire generation of young men. In addition to this, the Allied nations owed the United States $30 billion worth of loans that had been used to finance their war effort. The United States had raised $20 billion from the sale of Liberty war bonds to support the Allied cause, complemented by an additional $10 billion raised from taxes on wealthy individuals and corporations. Furthermore, the American economy had just experienced the
Zebra mussels are a big problem because they cost the economy lots of money, eat up almost all of the plankton, and they hurt aquatic life. My first reason we should rid of the zebra mussel is because they cost the economy lots of money. According to the article Zebra Mussels by MNDNR, “Zebra mussels can be a costly problem for cities and power plants when they clog water intakes.” They cost America 5 billion dollars a year just to replace things this small mussel has ruined. My second reason that we need to remove the zebra mussels
But an epidemic of aggressive medical care treatments such as too many procedures,too many blood tests provided by hospitals or clinics are costing our nation 's healthcare system billions of dollars each year. Despite being recognized to be harmful to patients and their loved ones, “aggressive care” is still administered to the majority(75%) of patients, concludes a study done by the American Society of Clinical Oncology(Johnson,2016). After watching the videos and reading the article on medical care my stance on aggressive healthcare is it is unnecessary and I am against it. What people don 't realize is that if we keep providing aggressive health care treatments to individuals suffering from serious illnesses or people living through the end of life it can take a human toll in pain, mental or emotional suffering, severe implications and even death. Most people prefer to die peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones and want care to focus on comfort, but that is not always the case for many patients who die in hospitals hooked up to hospital machines in pain and suffering to hold on for their dear lifes.
You see a giant machine in the middle of the water and you realize that the golden red color isn’t from the sun, it’s from oil in the water. You realize that the wind turbine did this and you are horrified. The U.S is in a 16.3 trillion dollar debt, a hole that is very hard to get out of. The CWP will only add more debt to the country and the people. The project will cost 2.5 billion dollars, causing many businesses to fail.
Many people are forced to not buy the drugs they need to survive, which can result in deaths. Even some people that can afford their medicine have a very hard time finding a way to pay for their prescription. The government needs to change it, whether it be importing drugs from Canada, or enforcing price controls. The prices are far too high, and that is why millions of Americans do not take their medicine. Millions of people not taking their prescription is way too many, in fact one person not taking their medicine is too many.
Athletes Are Overpaid Athletes have always gotten more money than they deserve. As a result, athletes are overpaid and sources say “more money causes more problems.” Athletes get paid unnecessary amounts of money each year that they have no clue what to do with it all so they spend it on stuff they don’t need! For example, this pro athlete has 8 cars and he is complaining he needs money to pay for his ferrari that is just ridiculous if they have that many have that many cars! To add on, 60-85% of athletes go bankrupt within 2-5 years or retirement or they end of having financial problems and can’t afford stuff they claim they need when they clearly don’t. Also, when athletes get paid, some athletes, make way more money than an average family could make in a lifetime!
Invasive species are said to be one of the most expensive problems being faced by the government. This is why people want the government to stop spending billions of dollars on this management, when it could go towards making more jobs for citizens. Monica Dawson, author of Pythons: 8 Facts about the Exotic Pet That 's Ruining the Florida Everglades, wrote, “What most people do not know is that these Burmese pythons can still cost the government money even when they are not removed by employees of the invasive species management program.” Faine Greenwood, The Global Post noted, “ that it costs over $93,992 every year for the feeding for one Burmese python and continued efforts to decrease the overpopulation of the species would greatly lower the
It is a US $125 billion industry! The typical cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease. Chemotherapy drugs are among the most expensive of all treatments, many ranging from $3,000-7,000 for a one-month supply. The cancer industry spends virtually nothing of its multi-billion dollar resources on prevention strategies, such as dietary advice, exercise, and obesity education. Instead, it pours its money into treating cancer - chemotherapy drugs, radiotherapy, surgeries, and diagnostic technologies.
His picture did more justice than his conviction. By the 1985 245, 200 more were victims to the justice system. During the 80s, a drug epidemic was considered the worst economic crisis.

The cost for the US to keep fighting and still keep the Philippines under their control was $4 million (USD). The US had sent 100,000 soldiers to fight and over 3,000 people died during the war. The fact that the US spent millions of USD was outrageous because they were already in a state of economic depression due to the Stock Market Crash of 1902. The US was so greedy for power that even after the success of winning The Spanish American War of 1898 and gaining allies overseas. It still wasn’t enough, they still wanted more power and because of this, they decided to annex the Philippines.
