- Post Soviet Russia - 484 words
Post Soviet Russia In December of 1991, the Soviet Union disintegrated into fifteen separate countries. Its collapse was hailed by the west as a victory for freedom, a triumph of democracy over totalitarianism, and evidence of the superiority of capitalism over socialism. It was a relief for many to watch the Soviet Union brake down, finally bringing the cold world to an end. This day made history as the whole world reformulated its political, economic and military alliances. What where the causes of the break-up and who was to blame for it? By the time the Soviet Unions last leader came to power in 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev, the country was suffering severe economic and political problems. Hi ...

... hree ingredients to their meeting places near the fork of the Chicago River (Growth 52). Opening in 1851, the first mill was the North Chicago Rolling Mills. In 1865, it was the first mill in the nation to produce steel rails. This industry was so well suited for Chicago that by 1875, Chicago rolled more rails than any other American city (Berger 157). Like the raw materials shipped by train for steel, grain became a resource that Chicago needed for storing large quantities for use in the livestock industry. The first steam-operated grain elevator was built in 1848 on the lakefront and in just four years, railroads accounted for the majority of grain received in Chicago (Martin 166). By ...

In actuality, workfare is a contraction of the concept of "working for welfare" which basically refers to the requirement that recipients perform unpaid work as a condition of receiving social assistance. Recent debates on the subject of welfare are far from unique. They ...

- The Jungle - 782 words
The Jungle The Jungle is one of the most famous American novels ever written. Most people associate The Jungle with the federal legislation it provoked. Americans were horrified to learn about the terrible sanitation under which their meat products were packed. They were even more horrified to learn that the labels listing the ingredients in tinned meat products were full of lies. The revelation that rotten and diseased meat was sold without a single consideration for public health infuriated American citizens. They consumed meat containing the ground remains of poisoned rats and sometimes-unfortunate workers who fell into the machinery for grinding meat and producing lard. Within months of ...

... depending on how they earn their income. The family that earns a larger share of its income from labor will pay a higher personal tax than the family that collects more of its income from interest, dividends, and capital gains (Hamond 1). Those in favor of the flat tax would rebut with the fact that all capital income is already taxed at the business level. One of the most debated topics on the flat tax is whether or not it increases economic growth. Proponents of the flat tax claim that the flat tax would allow Americans to keep more of the money they earn, creating the desire to work more, and to save and invest more (Mitchell 1, 13).
