A Feminist Reading of Cheever’s The Five-Forty-Eight - A Feminist Reading of The Five-Forty-Eight The short story "The Five-Forty-Eight" by John Cheever concerns the issue of a woman scorned by the inhumane treatment she has received by men, most notably that of Blake, whose oppression serves as the turning point in her life.

She deviates from conventional wisdom, which says that gender roles have been largely detrimental to only half the population, which is simultaneously confined to working in the domestic sphere and prevented from participating in the public realm. Her theory says that Americans subscribe to a "sexuo-economic system" which reduces men to "mere earning mechanisms" and forces women to "become parasitic wives" (6, 4)....   [tags: Barbara Ehrenrech Gender Equality Essays] 938 words

Japan's Economic History in the Last Forty Years - ... The Japanese population has historically saved a lot and consumed little.

These funds were used to build and expand the country’s industrial infrastructure (Okimoto, 2004). Conversely, after the asset bubble burst, the economy slowed down because consumers started saving in excess (Kuepper, n.d.). One reason for why people saved more is the deflationary expectation that encouraged people to wait for their money to increase in value before spending it....   [tags: admired economies in the world]
