The Economic Growth of the World

4 Comments »

March 29th, 2018 Posted 11:58 am

The issue that I would like to focus on isn’t necessarily the one that is causing the most problems but it is the one I am most interested in which is the economic growth. One of the main beliefs I have about this is that it will be the most beneficial if solved. With poor or countries growing stronger, they could contribute to technology and many other aspects of peoples life making them better; On the other hand, say by getting rid of poverty, it might help us in the long long long long run and a tremendous amount of effort would need to be spent on it whereas, by improving the economy of weaker nations, we could gain their assistance in many things.

My question would be, “How do we make a difference to weaker nations economically by using less resources?”

The message that I would like to send to the world is that doing this would not only be good for the poor countries but also for the greater good of the world.

The feedback I would like to receive is about if my claim is specific enough to be answered and if there are any weaknesses to my plan.

The French Revolution in First Person

No Comments »

March 17th, 2018 Posted 5:48 am

Morgan Frenchman is a man with a very strong sense of justice and cause. The start of the French revolution began when he was 29. He played his part in the French Revolution by standing up his strong believe that the monarch was wrong. He fought bravely for his belief of what was right even if it caused his life at the very end.

The French revolution has had tremendous change on the society, politics and economy of France. But some things always stay the same such as the economy still remained disastrous after the revolution. This is due to the many losses during battles and sieges. There was still the voting system and there were still a lot of starving peasants. Most changes were good like the fall of Robespierre. After his death the revolution had basically stopped. Life was slower and calmer than before. Now there was less society difference. The Church had its power and wealth taken away. All noble titles were abolished. Men were to be born and remain free and equal in rights. After the revolution, the king was ripped of his power to make laws. Laws were now made by the Legislative Assembly. The assembly is elected by active citizens of France and gave about four million men the power to vote. The new government was kind of a democracy but there were still limitations to who could vote. A lot of people had died, but at least they have left the people still living a legacy of equal rights and a stronger voice.

Overthrowing an ancient regime of monarchy to the start of a new France.

  • There were many crucial causes to the French revolution and these led to the important events that shaped the future of France from a state monarchy to a republic. Almost all of these causes fit into three categories, social causes, economic causes and political causes just like any average revolution. The first and most important cause was that the third estate had the burden of paying almost all of the taxes and was starving. This is definitely the main cause of the revolution because it is what lead to the tennis court oath and without it, there wouldn’t be group of people united by the same goal but separate people with the same goals. Another event that lead up to the tennis court oath was the third estate representatives leaving the estates general during the meeting. If they haven’t chose to leave, they wouldn’t get a chance to swear an oath. The revolution still might’ve happened but some time after. If only the king was strong but because King Louis XVI was a weak leader, the people of France did not look up to or fear him and felt especially distasteful towards bringing France in debt by spending the nation’s money on jewellery and other expenses. By being a soft leader, the third estate stormed the Bastille and got no punishment after. This boosted their confidence and led to more rebellions. The king’s vile spending habits led to debts and more taxes on the third estate. The people were starving even more. This also led to tennis court oath during the estates general. But France can’t blame all their debt on King Louis XVI because France contributed a vast amount of supplies and resources when they assisted the Americans fight for the American revolutionary war. Finally, King Louis XVI was in debt with the first and second estate for a very long time and had no plans to return any money which was not putting himself in a necessarily amiable position with the first two estates. This made the first and second estate hesitate in supporting the Monarchy during the revolution and made it easier for the third estate ti succeed in overthrowing the King.

 

Undressing the Dismal Science, Naked Economics

Why would poor countries continue to plummet in economy, technology etc. While, rich countries never fail to grow in almost all aspects? The answer is simply human capital. Human capital is the value of a person based on their knowledge, skills, influence and other abilities that affects their value to a community. From the book Naked Economics, we can learn that human capitol can effect a community as large as a country or small like a city. Even just from this we can tell that human capital is definitely decisive to any society.

Human capital is really important because it affects everyone no matter what type of country you live in, rich or poor. It is influential to countries in ways such as “Poor countries in the world will continue to stay poor” (Wheelan 54). This is certainly because poor countries will not be able to gain a substantial number of human capitol. Because most people, even if it’s their own country that is facing poverty would still rather go to a wealthy country such as America to work and possibly become rich. Because the exclusive option is to stay in whatever of a poor country they came from and face a most likely dim future. To a flourishing nation, human capital is also undeniably important because it is one of the few things that improves a country. However, only affluent countries will get the chance to profit from it because only “Advanced countries will continue to improve through human capitol” (68). This is because rich and advanced countries act like a human capital magnet with its newest technology and superior economic status while poor countries act like a human capitol repellent with lesser technology and a failing economy. Because human capital is attracted towards rich countries and away from poor countries, rich countries will continue to develop in all aspects while poor countries will not offer any positive changes while continue to decay in economy and many other important factors to a community’s wellbeing.

Human capital is, influential and crucial in a countries success. However, countries without or with an inferior supply of human capital will do anything but quickly improve. Because human capital is so significant in a nations fate, it itself must be without a doubt in a high degree of importance. How else will any country improve without the support and assistance of many capable people?

THE FACELESS ONES ARE RISING

Skulduggery and his partner Valkyrie Cain faced the dangerous task of preventing the return of the faceless ones. The faceless ones have near to infinite power and were once looked upon as gods. However, with the cunning, strength and skills of the skeleton detective Skullduggery, there is a chance to stop them. The author used action and dialogue to show the action being propelled along. I chose the dialogue, “Are you going to tell me where he is?”“No, I’m not” (Landy 270); because by refusing to tell Crux where Skullduggery was, he couldn’t send any man to hinder him from setting up defenses to stop the Faceless Ones. If he were to send men to stop Skullduggery, the heroes of this story would not have put up a fight and be easily crushed by the Faceless Ones. Another example of a dialogue used by the author to propel the action is, “There’s a bomb!” “Where?” “Guild’s Jacket” (311). By warning Skullduggery there was a bomb, Skullduggery was able to respond fast and shoot Guild’s legs preventing him from getting any closer and saving the lives of everybody on that bridge. If Guild was to reach Skullduggery, then there would have been no fight with the Faceless Ones with the protagonist dead. The author also used action such as, “She smiled as the floor gave way beneath her (299) This action allowed China to escape. By escaping, she was able to join in the fight against the Faceless Ones. Without her assistance, Skullduggery would have failed to stop the faceless ones. Another action in this book was, “Sanguine took Krav and the Grotesque down and away” (150). This is really important because if Sanguine failed to steal the Grotesque, then the Faceless ones would never have a chance of returning. The Author of the faceless ones Derek Landy, did several other Skullduggery pleasant novels such as “The Scepter of the Ancients” and “Playing with Fire”. I chose this book because it is full of action and dark humor.

The faceless ones have near to infinite power and were once looked upon as gods. However, with the cunning, strength and skills of the skeleton detective Skulduggery, there is a chance to stop them. To hi-light the theme of the story, sacrifice is necessary to achieve a goal, the author used action and dialogue to show what the protagonist needed to endure; For example,“and they’re going to bring the Faceless Ones back and we’re all going to die(pg 157). This shows that the character knew the dangers that they faced but still didn’t hesitate to help save the world which makes a foundation to develop the plot. As a Fantasy/horror novel, the dark, thrilling and panicky setting filled the story such as,“It has been a long time, since I spilled the blood of a living being.’He moved suddenly and quickly’.”(page 229); This leaves readers thinking whoever said this is craving for carnage. “Suddenly and quickly” create a nervous and dangerous setting to guide the action further along. The Author of the faceless ones Derek Landy, did several other Skulduggery pleasant novels such as “The Sceptre of the Ancients” and “Playing with Fire”. I chose this book because it is full of action and dark humour, and because of the spirit skullduggery has shown in sacrificing to save the world; Just as in my life, I would be willing to sacrifice my free time to help other percussionists by giving them guidance in how to practice for something they don’t know how to play.
