- ... If an individual does not know the basics of financial literacy, they cannot pass on their knowledge and encourage others to budget. Through this then the individual becomes a group, and this group then has a negative impact. Such inexperience becomes more widely spread as fewer people budget. A poll done by Gallup in 2013 of one-thousand and twelve adults over the age of eighteen showed that only a little over one-third of those adults budgeted their expenses and income (Jacobe, 2013). This became only twenty-six percent when the adult had a high school education or less, which is twelve percent less than those who had completed college (Jacobe, 2013)....   [tags: High school, Education]

In these respects, The Tall T, though produced in 1957, is representative of the great mass of simplistic, histrionic films which constituted the majority of the Western genre output during the 1920s through the 1950s; the film is perhaps even an exemplar of the subgenre, as director Budd Boetticher most likely drew upon the most typical of the accumulated conventions of the B-Western for inspiration....   [tags: Movies, Cowboys ]
