Slavery and the Capitalistic Premise of the United States

A 5 page discussion of the importance of the institution of slavery to capitalism. In the U.S., however, the issues surrounding slavery lasted long past the time where the institution was becoming extinct in other regions of the world. This long life can be attributed to the relative age of the U.S. during the time when we most depended on slavery and the extent of the resources which we had at our disposal. Effective utilization of these resources demanded that we rely on the institution of slavery. The contention is presented that whites in both the north and the south recognized this dependence and even at the time preceding the civil war northern whites were largely in support of slavery as long as it didn’t expand past those regions in which it was already ingrained.

War Stimulates Economy

The costs of war almost always increase the budget deficit and spur a downturn in the economy. Short, well-run wars such as World War II and the first Gulf War, provide a springboard for economic growth after completion because budgeted capital, earmarked and just joining the war effort, is suddenly thrust back into the normal business sector.

Bush’s Dilemma: The Cost of the War on Terrorism

A 3 page paper arguing that George W. Bush has no clear idea of how long the war against terrorism will last, how much it will cost or when he will need to raise taxes to pay for the effort. The bottom line is that there are too many unknowns for the Bush administration to be able to provide any firm picture of total cost of the war effort or when it will be “safe” for the economy for the administration to raise federal taxes. Without knowing how long the war effort will last, there is no way to firmly predict what the final cost will be. Without knowing that bottom-line figure, neither can tax increases be predicted. All hinges on how effective allied forces are able to be in inhibiting terrorists’ ability to act at will. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

The Israel Kibbutz: Communal Child Care Verses an Emphasis on the Nuclear Family
