Reagan Economics - 1,646 words
The election of the Regan-Bush Republican ticket of 1984 brought many unprecedented and controversial policies to the US economy. Many of these policies,including Reganomics still affect our economy as a whole and are still major points of debates today. Reganomics was not solely based on economics, but rather the included a sense of having moral foundations. Government intervention and regulation of the economy were seen as economically harmful and furthermore morally wrong. It was believed that economic affairs should be left to the wisdom of God and his guidance would produce a successful market and economy. The moral obligation together with extreme Kenseyan theories were the guide to th ...

Uganda - 1,477 words
The people of Uganda have had many types of governments during their long history, but until the coming of British Colonialism, there was no central government. Originally government was in the hands of the tribal groups who elected their own leaders and made their own laws, which all members of their group were expected to follow. Later some central authority was given to the kings of the various tribes, including the largest of these, the Buganda, whose ruler, the Kabaka, was considered the king and had ultimate authority over his people and their land ( Cavendish, 31). Mutesa II, whose full name was Sir Edward William David Walugembe Mutebi Luwangula Mutesa, was the Kababa of the East Afr ...

We all know that men and women are different in so many ways and this why what makes it so difficult for men to represent women in any form or way. So it is clear that the only fair and accurate way is for each grown person to have one vote, and to cast it to represent himself or herself. Back when women did not have the right to vote, there was a sense that their ideas or beliefs were not represented to the fullest of capacity. For instance why was it allowed for children to work in factories and it took some f ...

The microeconomic picture of the U.S. has changed immensely since 1973, and the trends are proving to be consistently downward for the nation's high school graduates and high school drop-outs. "Of all the reasons given for the wage squeeze - international competition, technology, deregulation, the decline of unions and defense cuts - technology is probably the most critical. It has favored the educated and the skilled," says M. B. Zuckerman, editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report (7/31/95). Since 1973, wages adjusted for inflation have declined by about a quarter for high school dropouts, by a sixth for high school graduates, and by about 7% for those with some college education.

People were able to travel greater distances in a shorter amount of time thus facilitating travel and communication greatly.

Mandatory Drug Testing - 1,880 words
It has become all too common for governmental institutions across the nation to pass rules saying that certain people are subject to random drug testing. The central question that is raised deals with the righteousness of being subjected to testing even when there is no overwhelming warrant. Under the protection of the unreasonable search and seizures, including bodily searches, in the fourth amendment of the constitution, certain people, such as students and welfare recipients, to name a few, feel that their rights as citizens and human beings are being violated when they have to submit to mandatory drug tests, but on the other side there are those who believe that if someone is willing to ...

After reading Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, by Mildred Taylor, many issues were brought to my attention. It was an accurate, and realistic portrayal of prejudice, discrimination, harassment, and cultural differences that were prevalent in the 1930's. I believe that this book is an excellent tool to help students connect with sensitive, and complicated human issues that are prevalent today in our society. Mildred Taylor, wrote several books, such as, Mississippi Bridge, The Road to Memphis, and several other treasures. These works, along with Roll of Thunder, are excellent tools to introduce multicultural issues into the classroom. The issues of racism, prejudice, and stereotyping, are an imp ...

Government Regulatory I Tervention In Canadian Business - 818 words
Government Regulatory Intervention in Canadian Business It is possible that Canada may be approaching the critical level where the economy is being strangled; where enterprise is re-strained and where entrepreneurship is stifled. But Canada could not dishevel itself that easily. Canadian business will not fall because it doesn't like a few rules. Canadian business will realize that Government regulations have a positive and effective role in society and should be commended, and not scrutinized. Public choice theory explains that the Canadian Government will always strive for pay, perks, and power, and there may not be much Canadians can do about changing the incentive structure of the regula ...

South Korean Political Parties - 1,002 words
Why have so many political parties existed in South Korea? We have previously discussed that the Chaebol is a prominent factor as well as is the existence of Koreas mixed-party electoral system. It is evident that a combination of these two factors creates the environment in which small minority political parties can thrive. Yet what would occur if these factors were to be manipulated? Would this in turn have an effect on the number of political parties? According to previous assumptions, the outcome of either government regulations on the Chaebol or a change in electoral laws would ultimately decrease the party numbers. Lets take a look at whether or not this is so. Two years ago, the Korea ...

The official infant mortality rate of 24.8 per 1,000 is tied with Costa Rica for the lowest in Central America, although actual rates are probably higher due to underreporting in rural areas. By the 1970's, Belize had eradicated malaria and dengue fever, but both diseases made a major resurgence in the following decade. By law, education is compulsory for children between the ages of 6 and 14, although access to schooling in remote rural areas is limited.

Polarization In The Political System - 1,150 words
On Tuesday, November 14, 1995, in what has been perceived as the years biggest non-event, the federal government shut down all "non-essential" services due to what was, for all intents and purposes, a game of national "chicken" between the House Speaker and the President. And, at an estimated cost of 200 million dollars a day, this dubious battle of dueling egos did not come cheap (Bradsher, 1995, p.16). Why do politicians find it almost congenitally impossible to cooperate? What is it about politics and power that seem to always put them at odds with good government? Indeed, is an effective, well run government even possible given the current adversarial relationship between our two main po ...

Security vs. Privacy in the Internet The question of privacy began when man uttered his first words. The question was raised again when the postal system began and then when telephones were introduced. Once again, we must apply the question to the new information superhighway, that is e-mail, telecommuting, online newsgroups, etc. The question is this: How important is privacy on the Internet? According to Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, privacy(1) is "freedom from unauthorized intrusion." It is an issue that always concerns people. Several forces determine privacy. The two primary forces - cultural principals and governmental regulation - constantly battle with each other to sati ...
