The 1920s is viewed as a prosperous and glamorous time period, but F. Scott Fitzgerald tells us otherwise. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald unveils the reality of peoples lives in the 19 ...

The Industrial Revolutions Effects on Europe A great historian, J.H.

The assumption that the individual is in some sense supreme in the marketplace axiomatically leads to the conclusion that reliance on individual self-interest is the only requirement of the economic (and indeed the political) system. 17 But a free market assumes that people have equal access to information about what is taking place and that they are all ufficiently self-reliant to exist without buying or selling. This reflects a utopian situation, found only in some small communities (in which group cohesion is a central element of community structure). It has long been known by anthropologists, sociologists, and psychologists that in most societies, group behavior is ...
