This law increased custom duties by nearly 50% on imports of more than 20,000 types of goods. Many countries, as a retaliatory measure, also increased their import taxes.

The tariff also increased living costs, limit exports and hurt investors as the high tariffs would make it harder for debtors to pay off loans, continuing to weaken banks.
The powerful words, “We stand for our people, for our nation. We stand for our brothers and our sisters. We stand for water, for life”(Urban Native Era), are chanted by protesters as the fight against Energy Transfer and its construction of the Dakota access pipeline ensues. According to MSNBC, this $3.7 billion dollar project in the making is half completed and will run through four different states including, Iowa, Illinois, South Dakota and North Dakota.

According to a study released last year by the Pew Hispanic Center, as of 2008, 11.9 million illegal immigrants lived in the United States, more than triple the 3.5 million who lived in the country in 1990 (Izumi). Immigration throughout the years has become a major issue in the U.S because of too many immigrants entering the country year after year. The U.S has come to a point whether they should deport the immigrants back to their country. Believe it or not, these immigrants are a big contribution to the U.S. If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now.
My perceptions regarding Alaskan drilling have not changed, I believe that the Alaskan Wilderness should not be drilled for oil. My decision rests on the fact that the Alaskan wilderness is an irreplaceable natural resource and the possible oil resources it may or may not yield, are not worthy of its destruction. Viewing this situation as a dispassionate observer, there is no overwhelming motive for the U.S. to drill in Alaska. Scientists have largely stated that the oil reserves in Alaska may not yield the amount or quality of oil once believed, therefore it does not warrant the expenditure of time, money, and resources to disrupt the environment. Advocates argue that drilling would decrease fuel prices, create new jobs, and end our foreign

During the Great Depression the unemployment rates were at 25%, which is extremely high for that time, and the rates for the Great Recession was 9% which is comparable to then because there are more people in the world than there was at the time of the Great Depression. This unemployment rate affect many people causing them to lose their job and find new work even though it was hard due to the economy being bad and this makes things get worse and a worse till something comes along and changes the outcomes. Also both of the declines in the economy had warning signs that either the government or people who knew the stock market backwards and forwards knew that something bad was about to happen and there was no way to fix it because it had already gone too far in the hole for them to fix it without having a catastrophe of some sort.
