The Australian Government - When you think of the “land down under” you don’t really think of the kind of government they have. I chose to write about the Australian government because I really don’t hear much about Australia. It currently has a pretty interesting story to tell when it comes to their government.

It offers practical methods for deciding the morally right course of action - “...an action is right as it tends to promote happiness, wrong as it tends to diminish it, for the party whose interests are in question” (Bentham, 1780)....   [tags: Government]

Cabinet (Parliamentary) Form of Government - “It has been said that one of the greatest political problems of the time is to reconcile representative institutions with good government.” With this problem in mind, the cabinet form of government, which is nearly synonymous with the parliamentary form of government, has been established to lessen the gap between representative institutions and good government or, if possible, make them one in the same through its unification of powers. Past forms of representative government have become extinct or severely troubled because of numerous weaknesses....   [tags: British Government]

Nigerian Government Officials - We are members of the emerging democratic Nigerian government. Although previously under a military dictatorship, we are trying to present a new face to the international powers present at the forum. Even with the change in government, we have maintained ownership of 55-60% of the oil extracted from Nigerian lands by the international companies Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil, Agip, Elf, and Pan Ocean (Bureau). This provides our country with $60 billion in revenue, half of which is divided up evenly and distributed to each of the thirty-six state governments for use (O’Neill)....   [tags: International Government ]

The Constitution and the U.S. Government - Introduction After the Constitutional Convention in 1787, the United States Government was reorganized under the Constitution.

Basically, the Constitution created three branches of government (Executive, Judicial, and Legislative) which would work together to run the government. To make sure that there was an equal balance of power among the branches, a system of checks and balances was devised so that each branch could limit the power of the others....   [tags: U.S. Government ]

Changes in the American Government - Throughout the lifespan of the American government, there have been changes to the different branches. One cannot simply claim that they are exactly as the Founding Fathers had designed them and pictured them; they have become so much more. Among these changes are the adoption of the 17th Amendment, the general surrender of control of power to the executive branch, and the centralization of power to a couple of congressional leaders in recent years. These are some of the most important changes that have altered the Congress and the American government in general....   [tags: U.S. Government ]

Machiavelli’s Views on Government - At first glance Machiavelli’s writings could be mistaken for evil and satanic beliefs, but in reality there are many good underlying points as to how to rule a nation. I believe that the New Yorker’s description of Machiavelli is the best example of his life and beliefs, because it not only touches upon the high points, but the low points of beliefs as well. The New Yorker goes into great detail about how Machiavelli came up from a mid level family to achieve a role as a government official/ “ambassador” just to be thrown in prison after years of trying to stabilize and unify an unstable country through means of war and fear....   [tags: Machiavelli, government, ] 644 words

Ideas of Government in The Prince - Modern-day society is corrupt. It is sad and unfortunate, but it is true. The global economy is suffering an international meltdown. Egypt is at war with itself.

Local Government and Healthcare - Regional-based IHNs arise from the devolution of health care management to a lower tier of local government, either a regional health authority or a municipality. In the first case, the IHN generally encompasses two health care tiers (first-line and hospital care), but that is not necessarily true in the second case as some municipalities may be too small to justify having a hospital with specialized care. In both cases, IHN populations are geographically defined. The enrolment-based IHN evolved in countries with a system based on competitive insurance markets (managed competition model), where consumers buy prepaid health care plans....   [tags: Local Government, government, Healthcare, argument] 780 words

Government Corruption - Over the last few years, the issue of corruption--the abuse of public office for private gain--has attracted renewed interest, both among academics and policymakers. There are a number of reasons why this topic has come under recent inspection. Corruption scandals have toppled governments in both major industrial countries and developing countries. In the transition countries, the shift from command economies to free market economies has created massive opportunities for the appropriation of rents, excessive profits, and has often been accompanied by a change from a well-organized system of corruption to a more chaotic and deleterious one....   [tags: Corruption in Government] 1150 words

Changes in Government Between World War I and World War II - A number of ideas change over a long period of time. However, some ideas change at a more rapid rate than others. This can occur when a significant event takes place and takes hold of people’s perceptions of that event. One excellent example of this principle is the progression of the ideas of government and its values from the First World War (1914-1918) to the aftermath of the Second World War (1939-1945). To understand how the perception of government at the time changed, one can examine the historical background of governments at the time of World War I, what caused groups to change hands, what groups changed, and how has these changes affected the events leading and affected World War II....   [tags: Government] 1169 words

Making of the New Government - After the victory over the British, each state had its own Constitution and Bill of Rights, but there were no centralized government. The Continental Government had a number of responsibilities that were not granted to them legitimately. They had created the Continental Army, printed money, managed trade, and dealt with the nation’s debt. They felt that they needed to legitimate their actions and realized that there was a need for a centralized government (Schultz, p115). In this report, I will compare and contrast the Articles of Confederation with the new Constitution of 1787, analyze the drafting of the Constitution and how the states compromised to draft it effectively, compare and contrast the debate over the ratification between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, and evaluate the success of the Bill of Rights in achieving balance between national and states’ interests....   [tags: American History, Government]
