The 1930s The Good Times and The Bad Times
The 1930’s: The Good Times and The Bad Times The decade of the 1930’s can be characterized in two parts: The Great Depression, and the restoration of the American economy. America had been completely destroyed due to the Stock Market Crash of 1929. It was up to the government and people of the 1930’s to mend America’s wounds. One man stood up to this challenge, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He promised to fix the American economy, provide jobs, and help the needy. During The Great Depression, th

Monasticism in the Middle Ages
Monasticism in the Middle Ages During the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the monasteries served as one of the great civilizing forces by being the centers of education, preservers of learning, and hubs of economic development. Western monasticism was shaped by Saint Benedict of Nursia, who in 529, established a monastery in southern Italy. He created a workable model for running a monastery that was used by most western monastic orders of the Early Middle Ages. To the three vows of obedience

Sexual Harassment
Sexual Harassment
Sexual Harassment Just 20 years ago, in most states a woman could not sign an apartment lease, get a credit rating, or apply for a loan unless her husband or a male relative agreed to share the responsibility. Similarly, a 1965 study found that fifty one percent of men though women were temperamentally unfit for management. There can be no doubt that we have progressed a long way from these ideas in the last three decades. However, it is also unquestionable that women in the work force are sti

Adam Smith
Adam Smith Adam Smith, a brilliant eighteenth-century Scottish political economist, had the advantage of judging the significance ol colonies by a rigorous examination based on the colonial experience of 300 years. His overview has a built-in bias: he strongly disapproved of excessive regulation of colonial trade by parent countries. But his analysis is rich with insight and remarkably dispassionate in its argument. Adam Smith recognized that the discovery of the New World not only brought weal

The soaring volume of international finance and increased interdepende
The soaring volume of international finance and increased interdependence in recent decades has increased concerns about volatility and threats of a financial crisis. This has led many to investigate and analyze the origins, transmission, effects and policies aimed to impede financial instability. This paper argues that financial liberalization and speculation are the most reflective explanations for instability in financial markets and that financial instability is likely to be transmitted glo

Over the past twenty or so years, great wealth and improved economic and social conditions have been promised to the communities that have embraced legalized gambling. However, with twenty years of experience it is time to look back and analyze whether this is true or not. It could easily be said that gambling is as American as apple pie. Gambling has shaped American history since its beginning. Lotteries were used by The First Continental Congress to help finance the Revolutionary war. Many of

As many Federal departments and agencies lurch into an era of running without funds, the leaders of both parties of Congress are spending less and less time searching for a compromise to balance the budget, and more and more time deciding how to use it to their advantage on the campaign trail. Meanwhile money is easily borrowed to pay for government overhead. In an attempt to change this, on June 29, Congress voted in favor of HConRes67 that called for a 7 year plan to balance the Federal Budget

The Great Depression was the worst economic slump ever in U.S. history, and one which spread to virtually all of the industrialized world. The depression began in late 1929 and lasted for about a decade. Many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; however, the main cause for the Great Depression was the combination of the greatly unequal distribution of wealth throughout the 1920's, and the extensive stock market speculation that took place during the latter part that same decad

Our concept of a bill of rights is American in origin. The prior existence of the English Bill of Rights tends to obscure this fact. Except for the name, the two have very little in common. The American notion of a ‘bill of rights’ includes guarantees of personal freedom in a document which defines and limits the areas of the legislature’s action. In this sense, the Virginia Declaration of Rights of 1776 was the first modern bill of rights, since it was the first to use a written constitution t

What is welfare? According to recent polls, most Americans consider this nation’s welfare system “a failure and a disgrace” (LeVert 10). Most people use the word “welfare” to mean income support or public assistance programs designed to help people who are already poor. Although it is geared to poverty-stricken people, families, and children, most people have benefited from government aid or assistance programs, in other words, “welfare.” Poverty in America is a disease for which there is plent

A member of congress chooses to vote for or against a law due to a number of reasons. With an issue that is very controversial and publicized a member of congress has to be careful of who he alienates. This will ultimately affect his or her reelection chances. The member of congress also has to be concerned with what he believes is the right decision to make.

The Great Depression Its Causes and Cure
The Great Depression Its Causes and Cure
The Great Depression: Its Causes and Cure. The economy in the United States during the 1930s was at its worst. In a normal economy, there has to be a circular flow of money. One's spending becomes part of someone else's earnings, and vice-versa. However, this circular flow can falter. People tend to spend less money when times become tough; but times become tougher when everyone starts hoarding money. This breakdown in the circular flow of money in an economy results in a recession. To get this
