Loss of resources reduces the availability of the Dream, however because the dream only offers possibilities, there are no guarantees. The right to success only works for those who succeed. Those who may be most disappointed are those who believe in absolute success, but as opportunities diminish, expectations become more realistic and focus moves from absolute success to relative success and on to competitive success, changing the mood and political climate of the nation. Sacrifices made by those that are highly successful, sometimes take a toll on their psyche, especially when they realize that success may not be worth the hype, but failure is infinitely more painful in part because people tend to be judged by that failure. It also serves as a reminder to the successful that they had better hold on, because failure is equated with poverty which in turn is equated with death.
Motivation or socially acquired need to fulfill personal goals is a complex concept. Organizations or firms are set out in order to achieve certain targets or goals and those goals are impossible to achieve without motivation. For managers, motivation of employees is considered as one of the most important aspect as well as being difficult to achieve. This is because there is often a misalignment between the firm’s and employee objectives. Firms may have the objective of profit maximization; it would be hard to find an employee who shared the same objective as the firm all the time.
Impact of Economic Inequality Economic Inequality undermines the productivity and morale of working people, and limit the number of people who could participate in the market and thus a country deprives itself of the contributions the lower section of its society could make to its economic development. Inequality of incomes leads to some other very serious economic and social consequences: (i) Class-conflict & Political Abuse: It has created two sections in society—the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-not’s—which are ever on the war path. This has resulted in ever mounting social tensions and political discontent. The rich dominate the political machinery, and they use it to promote their own exclusive interests. Political equality is a myth without
It appears that the view of social inequality as it would to the functionalist perspective is greatly dependent on economic rewards and status as being the only motivators for people wanting to gain a higher position within their culture. They do not take into consideration that people may have been born into distressed conditions and received below average education, making it impossible for them to maximize their skills and talents. A society must dispense its members among the various positions in that culture and these people also have to be motivated to fill certain locations and perform their responsibilities. Not all positions are equally pleasant, equally important, or equal in terms of required talent and ability. Stratification, or unequal distribution of rewards, confirms that the most talented and trained individuals will achieve the social roles of greatest importance.
In a developing nation, there is no sense of lifestyle yet and there is insufficient money coming in and it’s not enough to make a successful trade exchange. There would be more sacrifices made and in the end, there would be no improvement
By viewing this response with a utilitarian theory, no action being taken would be the least beneficial because employees are not being paid properly and the government would be losing money in taxation. This results in the greatest amount of good for the owners and managers of the business alone, so the lack of action would be morally incorrect when
People deserve more from a full-time job than simply the requirements for survival. Capitalism has never been good for the majority of humanity, and to recover its virtue, the current condition of jobs, profit, and earnings should be fine-tuned. Prosperity has been bought by depleting natural resources and exploiting people particularly from developing nations. When living in a country knowing that masses are afflicted with poverty and starvation, such a situation should enrage any caring person enough to revolt. Any system which promotes the combination of greed and deceit is immoral and should not be so eagerly worshipped.
All the money in the world cannot teach respect or courtesy that only comes with good teaching and a strong concern for the feelings of others. Money merely detracts from the pursuit of success by providing distraction, temptation, and corruption. Therefore society claim that having money determines success is illegitimate and cannot be synonymous with the true meaning. Like the pursuit of money, popularity and fame should not be synonymous with success.

I assume parker was referring to people living in less fortunate countries, more than likely outside of the United States. She tells the side of poverty that most Americans don’t see. According to Joe Goodwin Parkers article poverty is not fair and opportunities are limited which makes seem that all odds are against you. She says the governments won’t help, there are no jobs, and not enough resources. If government economics would change giving all people their necessities, then opportunities for growth will be promoted not suppressed.
The people in the country are hungry and in need of jobs but we cannot be responsible for their welfare. We cannot make them dependant on our handouts they need to become educated and learn to support themselves within their borders. United States foreign aid is a bad thing because it hurts their economies, creates over-population, and we spend money that could be used closer to home. United States aid hurts Third World countries because we blanket them in security and their economic problems remain hidden. Their failing economic system will not collapse as long as we keep feeding them money.
