The Nascent and the Prophylaxis of the Foreclosure Crisis: An Economic Prospective

- During the 1970s, the Carter Administration implemented the Keynesian Pump Priming in attempts to stimulate an economy shocked by petroleum prices. Commissioning public works projects, he injected liquidity into the market as had been done through the 50s and 60s. It resulted in uncontainable stagflation (stagnation and inflation). It provoked stagnation because the Keynesian stimulus requires the government borrow an extensive amount of liquidity, which pushed the demand curve for financial loan market forward, raising credit prices....   [tags: economy, foreclosures,]

The Bill Of Rights : The Rights And Well Being Of Individuals

- The rights and well-being of individuals has been a heated grand topic of debate dating back to our Founding Fathers. They laid the groundwork for those rights to be paramount and are to be protected by the government. The Bill of Rights, which are the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, were created to protect the individual rights of citizens. Although there is more flexibility in managing a group of people, I feel that individual welfare should rate higher than the general state of society....   [tags: Individual rights, Individual, Plessy v.

The Implications of Sickness in Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar

- Although times are changing and people are becoming more accepting, sickness and disability are still signs of weakness in modern day America. No matter the seriousness of the ailment, society generally associated it with a person’s lack of strength, even though they cannot control it. In addition, people regularly use sickness to cover up other emotions, such as guilt or anxiety, or to get out of doing something they do not want to do. Often, authors use illness in their works to demonstrate different aspects of the plot such as showing a character’s emotions or reflecting on the themes of the text....   [tags: weaknesses, emotions, feminism]

Sacrificic Sacrifice In The Iliad And Iphigenia At Aulis

- One of the most important aspects of a sacrifice is that it should serve to remedy an error made by another person. Within The Iliad and Iphigenia at Aulis, there is a sense of a sacrificial character, in which a character dies for the greater good. The character that is “sacrificed” (Iphigenia and, in a sense, Patroclus) exhibits characteristics that compensate for the tragic flaw of another character, in both cases, the one that essentially causes the death (Agamemnon and Achilles.) Iphigenia willingly gives her life in order to appease the gods and relieve her father of potential consequence, while Patroclus dies for the sake of the Greek army and thus inspires Achilles to join the war, d...   [tags: Trojan War, Iliad, Achilles, Agamemnon, Helen]
