Exploring Tax Morale

- The question of why people pay taxes is as old as taxes themselves. Allingham and Sandmo (1972) provided the main theoretical model based on the economics of crime approach (Becker [1968] 1974) where individuals would evade taxes as long as the payoff from tax evasion outweighs the costs of being caught evading. Increasing the costs of cheating – more audits, and stiffer penalties - should reduce tax evasion. Unfortunately, over time that theoretical approach has shown its limitations. First, it cannot explain why observed levels of tax compliance in empirical studies and in experiments are higher than the model’s theoretical predictions based on probabilities of detection and penalties....   [tags: Tax non-compliance]

This is evident through the representation of the fairy-tale heroine at its center, de Beaumont’s Beauty, juxtaposed with Disney’s Belle. IT is quite clear that de Beaumont’s tale uses Beauty to express female “socialization according to male oriented requirements” (Zipes, 24). Conversely, Disney’s Belle might be seen as a “nineties heroine” (Cummins, 23) and a “new kind of female protagonist who thinks and learns” (Cummins, 23)....   [tags: disney, beauty and the beast]

Christian Principles in Langland's Works

- Christian Principles in Langland's Works Many regard Langland’s work as a variation on the classic ‘Pilgrim’s progress’ story for the fourteenth-century Christian. The poem is often called a spiritual autobiography; but this is a simpliste description, the ironical result of the very vividness of Langland's presentation of his dreamer. The poet records a spiritual crisis that he experienced after a disputation with friars in later years. The poem, like Dante's, is certainly in one sense a Pilgrim's Progress--but hardly in Bunyan's sense; it describes not so much a spiritual journey (and journey was the dominant sense of 'progress' in Bunyan's day) as an unfolding, a development, stage by st...   [tags: Literature Religion Christianity Poems Essays]

Parental Decision-Making

- ... Context of the Ethical Issue The discussion of parental decision-making for minors is not a new concept to the world of ethics. Historically, the age of ‘majority’ was twenty-one years until the year 1971, when the 26th amendment to the United States Constitution was passed, allowing eighteen year old men and women to vote, make contractual obligations, and consent to medical treatment without parental knowledge or approval (Weir & Peters, 2004). Even with this provision, there has remained much debate about the point in time where a minor becomes mature enough to make competent decisions about his or her health....   [tags: health sensitive medical care decisions]

Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky are the two theorists who are closely linked to the development of constructivism. Over the past decade, education has seen an alarming increase in the number of students who are qualifying for special education services as well as students who are being labeled as “at risk” students.

Perspectives on Human Nature in ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Moby-Dick’

- Romantic literature, at its very essence, attempts to deal with the subject of human nature (Wang, 2011). Both Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ and Herman Melville’s ‘Moby-Dick,’ being Romantic texts, each offer their own perspective on the true essence of humanity. While their perspectives are largely similar due to the era they originated in, with both reasoning that humanity possesses an excessive pride in the desire to exceed its limits that is capable of immense devastation and corruption of others (Penguin Group, 2011; Ross, 2001), they are also somewhat different when it comes to the ability characters possess to recognise the damage they cause (, 2010; Macmillan Publishers Ltd...   [tags: Literature]

Kubla Khan: A Miracle of Rare Device

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem “Kubla Khan” is a masterpiece of ambiguity; from its inception to its meaning. “Kubla Khan” is a poem of abundant literary devices; most notably these devices include metaphors, allusions, internal rhyme, anthropomorphism, simile, alliteration, and perhaps most of all structure. But the devices that Coleridge used to create “Kubla Khan” is at the very least what makes this poem provocative; Coleridge’s opium induced vision and utopian ideals combined with his literary genius form a subjective yet imaginative dreamscape of a pleasure-dome in Xanadu ruled by “Kubla Khan”....   [tags: Literature]
