Despite some criticisms towards capitalism, it is seen as the most successful economic strategy for a country compared to others such as socialism and communism, these successes can be highlighted by the economic development of Western countries and in which is soon becoming a global phenomenon. Capitalism has a negative geographical dimension, this is inequality. David Harvey writes in Spaces of Hope, 2000, that capitalism is “one national struggle between the classes” This highlighting that although capitalism aims to make individuals proposer, it is not a balanced concept at all (Harvey, 2000). This inequality is spatially manifested and therefore gives it a capitalism a geography. Capitalism’s economic inequality has led to a clear divide between urban and rural, this is evident in China.
Most of the work was done around the concept of how market economics worked and then later on further work was done on the classical economics and the concepts were updated and altered to answer the critics of the classical school of thought and this was called as the Neo Classical Economics, the word Neo means New. Adam Smith in his book “An Enquiry into the Wealth of Nations” – 1776 provided the start for this modern school of thought around economics which was termed as Classical Political Economics.
From beginning to end, Irving demolishes the credibility of the myth, with things such as the invention of the historian Knickerbocker to the judge. Irving points out the flaws that exist in America through the use of Rip. When he does not recognize himself this is synonymous with America’s inability to recognize or define themselves. The society is not in harmony with its thought’s and action’s which disillusions the purpose of the myth giving them a sense of identity. Irving plays off of various inspirations and his character Rip undergoes the typical heroic journey.
World’s System Theory posits that there are unequal political and economic relationships between countries in which certain industrialized nations and their global corporations dominate the core of the world’s economic system. According to this theory, there is a rigid level of hierarchy i.e. with core/ center countries as dominant and capitalist in nature characterized by a superior level of industrialization and urbanization followed by periphery countries who are dependent on core countries for capital and are generally less industrialized and urbanized (Lecture 6/13/16). Core countries like U.S., Japan etc., are capital intensive, have higher wages thus have a higher standard of living, are generally very high-tech, and have lower amounts of labor exploitation and coercion. Peripheral countries, for instance, low income countries in Africa and South America are usually agrarian, have low literacy rates and are not very technologically advanced.
Many know The Great Depression hit America at this time, leaving more Americans without money, however the supply had not changed, there was still the same technology and resources and it was clear to Keynesian Economic that a self adjusting economy would not cut it anymore. This theory is the idea that demand determines the amount goods supplied. The Keynesian Economists believed aggregate demand is influenced by both the public and private sectors; meaning they believed the government had a role in the influence of economic choices. The belief that the velocity was unstable and that the market would not return to potential output on its own was a large argument they had. As aggregate demand affects the supply (production, employment and inflation) they saw it as the government's role to build it back up using monetary and fiscal policies.
The United States uses a progressive tax system - this means that the more money you earn, the more taxes you have to pay. This is the reasoning as to why many cooperations and individuals store their money in places like the Cayman Islands - who are then affected positively by this issue of inequality. But, let’s remember that tax havens are never the only story because offshore exists only in relation to elsewhere. That is why it is called offshore. Citizen’s escaping from tax, must be motivated by staying wealthy, and even being wealthier than others - likewise, Rousseau argues that domination is motivation.
CONCLUSION The Monroe Doctrine: Empire and Nation in Nineteenth-Century America, provides a different insight of the document.

Smith is referred to as the father of present day financial matters is still among the most persuasive scholars in the field of financial aspects today.

The response to the latter question requires an elaboration of what a firm is entirely about and why it is natural to internalize activities within a firm. Hymer 's contribution has in effect predated most current extant theory. His contribution to the political economy of multinational capital, the focus here, is less known, yet of extraordinary insight and foresight. Hymer predates most important debates on what today is called ‘globalization’ and came upward with an analysis of the most eminent quality and predictions which in the main have stood the test of time. According to Hymer, he said that there are two things that should be consider about why an enterprise in one state should assume control over a society situated in foreign nations.
