The capability of the arsenal is also increasing…” Furthermore, according to the article, the US intelligence community predicts that by the mid-2020s, China could more than double the number of warheads on missiles that are capable of threatening the United States to well over 100. This is a reasonable security threat that presents the United States with a few options. First off, it is important to understand why states acquire nuclear weapons and what the purpose they serve is. Geopolitical goals, including national security and possible expansion or coercion are important. Norms and identity also play a huge role.
The protection of the people should be in high priority of the government. The government is there to serve the people and make life better for everyone. If they don't protect the people then there is no point in the government. Union is important as well. I don't feel that it is as important though because if all the other aspects of government are effective then there should be no problem keeping a body under the government together.
Essentially, these programs budget some government funds so that domestic small businesses can research and develop potential technology for commercialization. There are many advantages and disadvantages to these programs. A big advantage is that these are not loan programs. Like Venture Capitals, the government does not expect the founder to pay back the capital even if the business fails. Another reason to use one of these programs is that these are not equity investments.
In essence, can overpopulation and economic disparity be separated? Southwick discusses this, but gives no decisive verdict on how the two are actually related, while Dolan claims that the issue is of less urgency than commonly perceived. Furthermore, both authors are failing to include rather important viewpoints into their arguments that ultimately results in the weakening of their chosen position. Dolan argues that population growth when coupled with the technological progress will eventually level off and the problem will more or less disappear. He is claiming a tech fix is inevitable, but ignores the problems with applying this tech fix to the lesser developed nations that are being most violently effected by the population boom.
Subjective Well-being and Money-making Motivations According to scientific research, there is a strong correlation between materialism and subjective well-being (SWB), and three aspects of materialism are the most accountable for decreasing or increasing SWB (Dittmar, 2008). They are value conflicts, money-making motivations, and levels of income. Though several researchers could argue over the significance of each factor in determining the trajectory path of SWB, it is not possible to define any factor as superior to others because they are interdependent. Money-making motivations cannot be isolated from other factors because analyzing only motivations does not include important cultural values and background which define and interpret motivation formations. However, money-making motivations can be considered an essential factor for understanding SWB and its correlation to money.

Economic development of a country can be accelerated using state of the art technology as a catalyzer. But if we rely only on brute power Research and Development, the technology will win war, but not peace. And that is exactly what the cold war has misshaped on us, and why such a war couldn’t have occurred.
We as the people give the government this power and ultimately, they decide to use it on military spending. Things such as nuclear warfare as mention earlier are necessary for the future, but if it is consider a last resort, why is there a need to keep continuously increase nuclear program’s budget. The problem with military as well is that it is now consider an overburden because an economy is supposed to provide for the material well-being of the population as a whole (Dumas). To fix this we need to cut back on military funding and give them to programs that does improve the economy such as the Department of Education and the Department of Housing and urban areas. If we get better education, there will be more job opportunity available for people.
Even though FDI has positive effects on the host economy, it is not crucial in the development of the host country with the governmental policies of the recipient state being the key factor that leads to development.

The Cold War Project Group Online claims “the advancement of technology during the Cold War was greater than that of any one time period” (“The Arms Race”). The war developed nuclear missiles and many other technological advancements taking the world into a new era, the Nuclear Era. It was estimated at one time the United States and the Soviet Union could nuke the world seven times over; the governments realized the pointlessness of so many nuclear missiles and turned their attention toward other ways to get an upper hand in the conflict. Tensions ran high during this time; without military confrontation, research and resources were redirected towards other fields of technology such as detection systems, surveillance equipment, and underwater technologies. The North American Aerospace Defense Command, other wise known as NORAD, is a series of radar stations in North America that were built in 1950s.
This article states the importance of funding for national defense. It hopes to inform the reader about how the budget cuts in basic research have left the country vulnerable. In order to defend against the three major national security threats of nuclear proliferation, weapons of mass destruction, and breeches of information technology infrastructure, Congress will need to supply appropriate funds in science and technology (Dietz 34). In writing this article, the author hopes to gather enough support to lobby for more funds. The argument contains all three parts of the logic triangle.
