The first 12 pairs of shoes are $80, the next 12 pair are $72, and so on. The customers, like in discrimination of the 3rd degree, are grouped together in the corresponding tiers so to speak, and since the tiers all pay the same price, the marginal revenue is constant within each tier and its purchases.

Discrimination Of Sex - 600 words
Discrimination is a word which can be applied to a multitude of life-learned situations; for it is arguably a part of human nature to discriminate. Whether it is the color of ones skin, judgement pertaining to the aesthetic value of ones countenance, or the type of jeans one wears, it is something that reasonably every human being has displayed or encountered. And according to a majority of the population, there is no better setting for discrimination than when pertaining to that of sex. Men and woman will undoubtedly be engaged in a timeless argument of which sex is better; which is more qualified for the job, which is more athletic, which is more responsible. The list of quarrels is appare ...

Affirmative Action Reverse Discrimination - 396 words
Affirmative Action = Reverse Discrimination We are all aware that discrimination took place over 50 years ago. What some might not be aware of is that because of the actions of our ancestors, we, white males, are held responsible and are penalized because of these actions. Affirmative action is a way to help minorities in sex and race to get accepted into colleges or get hired for jobs while the white males suffer from what took place over 50 years ago. Affirmative action is reverse discrimination. It is unconstitutional, and America has come a long way since 1964. Since affirmative action started taking place, white males are indirectly being penalized in the educational and job fields toda ...

Discrimination Against German And Irish Immigrants - 1,459 words
The Declaration of Independence states, All men are created equal,, but, taking a look at our nations history, we can clearly see that this statement is not valid. This was not accepted by the thousands of slave owners based in the South and the people who enforced oppression upon womens rights as equals. The nation's relatively newly-established independence, escalating prejudices against blacks, differing viewpoints regarding slavery, monetary inflation, and antagonism to womens basic rights created an uncomfortable, unstable time for minorities and a colorful history for our nation. During the Revolutionary War, people from diverse backgrounds and religions fought for freedom, liberty, an ...

Afirmative Action Or Positive Discrimination Misc - 1,471 words
Affirmative Action or Positive Discrimination Two people went to an interview for only one job position at the same company. The first person was just starting out in the field and seemed to lack the education, ambition and vision that was required of the job. The second person attended a prestigious and highly academic university, had years of work experience in the field and, in the mind of the employer, had the potential to make a positive impact on the companys performance. Adoption of the social policy known as affirmative action turns a relatively easy question, into a no win situation. After the United States Congress passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, it became apparent that certai ...

Immigration And Discrimination In 1920s - 530 words
Immigration and Discrimination in the 1920's Beginning in the early nineteenth century there were massive waves of immigration. These "new" immigants were largely from Italy, Russia, and Ireland. There was a mixed reaction to these incomming foreigners. While they provided industries with a cheap source of labor, Americans were both afraid of, and hostile towards these new groups. They differed from the "typical American" in language, customs, and religion. Many individuals and industries alike played upon America's fears of immigration to further their own goals. Leuchtenburg follows this common theme from the beginning of World War I up untill the election of 1928. If there was one man who ...

Subject: Personal Experience Paper Sun., August 6, 200011:57:12 AM MDT From: Debi Slaughter (view profile) Being from an upper middle class white family, I never thought that discrimination would become a part of my life. That was before I realized that my so-called upbringing was not what it had seemed. I was born and raised in Albion, MI. Little Detroit as its been called by some. In school I hung out with all races of people. The color of ones skin was never an issue with me, I only saw people for who they were, not what was on the outside. My family had raised me to believe that all people had the potential of being good or bad, not to judge by the color of their skin. When I was 19, I h ...

Affirmative Action - Discrimination Has Turned The Tables In The U.s. - 753 words
Affirmative action in theory and in thought is intended to promote the welfare of this countrys minorities by supporting the idea that individuals are equal and should not be judged by race or sex. Therefore, in situations like job and university applications, we should consider minorities to be as feasible a choice for hire as a white male candidate, taking into consideration their background. In short, it tries to give minorities that have been at a disadvantage their whole life, an advantage they have never been open too! All things considered, this does not happen. Instead, quotas are established and the discrimination that was once placed on the minorities now turns the other way. Lets ...

Gun Control: A Racial Discrimination - 1,192 words
Gun violence is one of the most serious problems in the United States. Each year in the U.S., more than 35,000 people are killed by guns, a death rate much higher than that in any other industrial nations. In 1997, approximately 70 percent of the murders in the United States were committed with guns. However, ironically, the United States also is the country that has the most gun control laws. Gun control laws generally focus on passing legislationby local state, or national governmentto restrict legal ownership of certain firearms. Seemingly, gun control laws may decrease criminals access to guns, but in fact the same laws also have their negative effects. Thus, the controversy over gun con ...

Racial Discrimination In America During The 1920's - 1,170 words
The motto of the United States of America is E Pluribus Unum meaning Out of one, many. It neatly recognises that although America may be a single nation, it is also one originally made up of immigrants who arrived not only from Europe and Asia, but forcibly as slaves from Africa and of Native Americans. Its population is the most racially and culturally diverse in the world and for that reason is often referred to as a Melting Pot. During the 1920s, racial tensions in American society reached boiling point. New non-protestant immigrants like Jews and Catholics had been arrived in their masses from south-east Europe since early on in the century. Together with Orientals, Mexicans and the Blac ...

However the quota systems did not place any restrictions on immigration from the Western Hemisphere, and consequently from immigration from Mexico and French Canada soared during the 1920s. The fact that the US Government was now officially acting on the wide spread fear and dislike of those from ethnic backgrounds reflected the national mood of the twenties. During the 1920s the Federal Government did little to alleviate poverty and socio-economic disadvantage amongst its ethnic minorities. However at this time few Americans would have expected it to int ...

Discrimination Of Adolescents - 606 words
The discrimination of adolescents has steadily increased over the years. Adults and media of modern day society discriminate all adolescents behavior based on a small minority of teens. This is due to the behavior of adolescents, the medias perception of teens, and as a result, the only way to end this madness is a compromise. First of all, the behavior of adolescents is a main cause of discrimination. Adolescents want attention from society by acting inappropriately and claiming it as individualism. The new generation of adolescents acts differently mainly because they have too much freedom; there is no one to discipline them. In the past, when adolescents did poorly or behaved inappropriat ...

Discrimination is any situation in which a group or individual is treated differently based on something other than individual reason, usually their membership in a socially distinct group or category. Such categories would include ethnicity, sex, religion, age, or disability. Two types of discrimination my essay will include are Womens Rights and Indigenous Australians and the One Nation Party. Womens Rights Until the second half of the 20th century, women in most societies were denied some of the legal and political rights accorded to men. Although women in much of the world have gained significant legal rights, many people believe that women still do not have complete political, economic, ...

Racial Discrimination In Mamet's 'american Buffalo' - 556 words
Fire is best fought with fire. That is to say, ill innate thoughts and attitudes are best fought with other thoughts and attitudes, and such is the ultimate purpose of literature. Thus, it was impressive to deal with the theme of racial discrimination in Mamet's 'American Buffalo.' Most probably, Mamet made Bob an African-American so as to tackle the problem of racial discrimination. A high percentage of African-Americans are, indeed, regarded as a lower class that does not get proper education. Even the American media usually associates them with incompetence, obscenity, especially that of language, or crime. Similarly, Mamet introduces the character of Bob as 'Don's gopher.' The reader soo ...

A New Age Of Discrimination - 1,143 words
Many upcoming high school graduates have aspirations of continuing his or her education at a major university. In order to become accepted into a college of ones choice, he or she must dedicate time and efforts to obtain the grades required. People have been taught that through hard work and dedication comes the reward of a better future. Although this seems to be the ideal and just situation, our nation has made the effort to give more equality to the minority groups through affirmative action. At the time when affirmative action was first introduced, it may have been the most plausible reparation; however, many Americans in both majority and minority groups are feeling the repercussions of ...
