Carnegie company was one of the richest ever and it couldn’t afford to give poor men and women a small pay raise. Also, they created a horrible situation by sending in the Pinkertons to do their dirty work. The amazing thing is that Frick had a huge mansion ten miles away but he still had to starve families.

If they are caught before the event, they are not allowed to compete. If they are caught after the event, they must forfeit their medals and their records are erased. Sometimes, countries are banned from the Olympic.

On the overall, the host country does not necessarily benefit from tourist influx due to Olympics as the other tourists planning to visit these locations are turned away due to the crowding of the host city. "According to The Economist, Beijing and London both attracted fewer visitors during their summer Olympics in 2008 and 2012 respectively than they had in the same period a year earlier" (McArdle).

Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped. With the wall comes its high costs like the cost of materials to build it or the money paid to the workers that are building it. When President Trump was doing the presidential campaign, he predicted the border was going to cost about twelve billion dollars, but that turned out to be untrue. Vanda Felbab-Brown herself writes, "... A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) internal report in February put the cost at $21.6 billion, but that may be a major underestimate.” Most of this is due to the size of the wall and all the fees that come along with building the wall on other territories. You would think that Trump would pay for it all himself but, that is simply not the case.
