Throughout the history of mankind alcohol has been the right hand of many individuals from emperors to working class. It has won its place in daily lives through meals, medicines, religions, and exchanges. Alcohol has become the “nourishing and intoxicating” aspect of human life. In occasions such as the American Revolution and the Whiskey Rebellion, one drink has come above all to save America that’s whiskey. Its creation led to certain disputes but brought major benefits within the United States.
First off, jobs are created because someone must make, transport, and distribute the alcohol. Also, due to the higher than normal sales taxes on alcohol, it had a great tax revenue for the federal government. It’s a win-win situation: the Feds get money, while the people have fun and get drunk out of their minds! Alcohol also positively affected the economy because it heavily depended on railroads, telegraphs, and mechanical refrigeration. (The Brewing Industry) Railroads are gaining profit because alcohol producing companies are paying them to distribute their product to stores.
A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage is not the typical history read that one might expect. To some who find reading history books quite tedious and overwhelming, this book is for you. Standage divides his book into 6 main sections via beverages: Beer, Wine, Spirits, Coffee, Tea and Coca-Cola. These drinks, which all started as a form of medicine, not only have great affects on today’s social culture but have also affected the historical spread of technology, religion, exploration, trade, slavery, and noteworthy worldwide events that changed society. As Standage describes it, Beer was a representation of both liquid wealth and health during the early civilizations in Egypt and Mesopotamia.
As a woman, Meryl is suitable to advertise beverage (Mococoa) and kitchen appliance (The Chef’s Pal). Most men like to drink alcohol, and Marlon, as a man, is suitable to advertise beer. Uses of stereotypes and sexism in advertisements have become bolder to try to sell a product. Women are all the more frequently introduced in ads, because they are seen as in charge of making commonplace buys. Men for the most part advertise alcohol, vehicles, cigarettes, or business products.

The British Empire was a collection of countries around the world ruled by Britain, and each of the countries had valuable resources that could be traded with Britain such as wheat from Canada and tea from India. Also, like the slave trade, many ships were needed to transport these goods, which benefited the shipbuilding industry. Furthermore, many young people from other countries in the empire such as India came to Britain to find work, sometimes on-board ships. This gave Britain many new strong workers to do important jobs such as build railway lines or work in mines. Overall, the British Empire was an important factor in the development of the British economy in the 18th century.
People like to drink coffee when they shop. We make a lot of money from people buying cookies, brownies, and coffee. We sell fancy takeout picnic lunches for boat people,” (Wood, 94%). This quote clearly shows the success of the main character of my book, Perry, and how he has gone past what anyone thought he would become. His own family used to reject him and just see him as a burden that they would have to deal with later in life.
Beer has had a profound impact on western society. It is used during holidays, celebrations, and general recreation. However, what more westerners don’t know is that beer has also greatly influenced Asian countries--specifically Japan. Even though Japan has a culture known for drinking tea, beer has been a large part since it was introduced in the 1800s, and is still a large part of Japanese society today. However, it had a majority of its impact leading up to the interwar period in Japan (the time between World War One and World War Two).
Those options include beer, wine, and liquor. This has been the case for as long as we can remember, therefore the threat of new entrants when it comes to substitutions is very low. However, the threat of new beer entrants is higher than ever. Therefore, the threat of new entrants is medium or neutral. Lastly, Anheuser-Busch’s rivalry among competitors is high.
Throughout human history, many different things affected culture and history as a whole. From laws, to inventions, to technological advancements. One thing most people do not consider to be part of this list is drinks. In the book “A History of the World in 6 Glasses” by Tom Standage, six different drinks that heavily affected world history are discussed and analyzed. Beer and wine had an extensive effect on the world, but coffee is, without question, the most influential of the three.
It had -- and continues to have-- an effect on the political, economic, and social aspects of civilizations. Dating back to the world 's first civilizations beer has a huge influence on the economy. In Mesopotamia "…wages and rations were paid in bread and beer.." (Standage Pg.2) ; cereal grains were considered the base of the economy. To this day beer is still creating jobs and generating economic growth. However, even in the ancient times people disapproved of beer.
The caffeine found in coffee helped “scientists, intellectuals, merchants, and clerks” feel energized, “alert”, and “stimulated” at the beginning of the day and at the end of the night, allowing for more discoveries to be made and for more tasks to be accomplished. This led to coffee replacing beer as the morning drink of choice, as the general public preferred feeling energized, “alert”, and “stimulated” to feeling intoxicated and tired. The coffeehouse culture also possessed an intellectual and calm vibe, which still prevails today, that promoted scientific discoveries such as heliocentrism, the belief that the sun is the center of our universe, as well as the laws of physics. Coffeehouses were centers for not only the gossip and gaming mentioned in the previous paragraph, but also for several scientific
The book “A History of the World in 6 Glasses” by Tom Standage was a interesting book and view in to the history of the alcoholic drinks that helped shaped the world as we know it. The first to chapters assigned were beer, wine, and spirits, where each chapter had information that grabbed the attention of the reader. In areas that grabbed my attention was the history of how beer was discovered, where wine was discovered to have purifying properties, and where spirits were associated with slavery. There were also parts of the three chapters where I thought the author could have added more even information. In areas that could have had more even information were in the chapter about beer was mainly on how it was made rather than used.
“People who consume cannabis products may be more inclined to visit places that have legalized cannabis when considering vacation destinations” (Blackburn 2). There is a big business opportunity because of marijuana. It can provide jobs for people and it can also provide revenue from sales and taxes (Blackburn 2). The legalization of marijuana would be the goose that lays the golden egg to not only the people that use it, but to the government and the economy. The United States is trillions of dollars in debt and legalizing marijuana could over time help reduce that amount a little bit.
