The Last Major Overhaul Of Theu.s Tax Code

- The last major overhaul of the U.S tax code took place over twenty-eight years ago as part of the Tax Reform Act of 1986. President Ronald Regan’s Treasury Department proposed a tax-neutral reform with the definitive duty of simplifying the overall code. However, the absence of any reform since then greatly reflects the United States current condition, in that “The United States provides a good example of an uncompetitive tax code” (Pomerleau & Lundeen, 2014). The following will examine two features of the tax code, which together create a disadvantageous environment for any American business in the international playing field....   [tags: Taxation in the United States, Tax]

Imperialism in South Africa

- During Imperialistic times South Africa was a region of great resources that was greatly disputed over (Ellis). Europe’s main goal during these times was to compete against each other and played a “game” of which country can imperialize more African countries than the other. Imperialism was a curse to South Africa, because many wars, laws, and deaths were not necessary and would not have happened if South Africa were not imperialized. Imperialism is the domination by one country of political, economic, or cultural life of another country or region and occurred during the 1800’s in Africa....   [tags: British Empire, Dutch/Zulu territories]

The Concept Of National Integration

- In order to understand the concept of national integration, one must first look at the definition of state and nation building.

To expand on this broad definition of nation building, it can be described as the politic surrounding the national integration of two significant processes that occur within a state and are important in its creation....   [tags: Nation, Nationalism, Ethnic group, Race]

The Civil War Of The United States

- In the times of the civil war the United States was a divided country between the North states, trying to spread liberalism to the enslaved African Americans and the South who thought it was against their rights for the government to abolish slavery.

Because of secession, liberalism could not be spread as easily if it was a unified Nation.

The 1945 Truman Proclamation relating to the right to explore and exploit resources of the sea bed

President Truman issued a proclamation in favour of the country to explore and exploit these minerals under United States policy (Frazier 2009, p.3).

As far as the legal concept of the continental shelf was concerned, its main characteristics were established as a natural prolongation of the state’s land territory (Currie, Forces & Oosterveld 2007, p.403)....   [tags: American History, Environment]
