The correct answers are A) Food exporters can export as much wheat as they want, while in the past they were limited to 50 tons and C) Citizens working in foreign countries must send back a quarter of their income.

The government of a country has introduced a few economic policies for the current financial year. The policies John Maynard Keynes most likely to disagree with would be “Food exporters can export as much wheat as they want, while in the past they were limited to 50 tons and citizens working in foreign countries must send back a quarter of their income.”

John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) was the famous economist that developed the theories later known as “Keynesianism.” He encouraged government intervention to end with the economic problems of the Great Depression. He thought that during a recession, the private sector stopped investing and saving. He considered the government should intervene at that moment to reactivate the economy.

Which of the following statements is true of Missouri? a. admission as a free state would change the balance of power b. many of the settlers were slaveowners from the South c. the Tallmadge Amendment established slavery in Missouri

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct answer is B. Many of the settlers of Missouri were slaveowners from the South.

Explanation:

Missouri’s first settlers were slaveholders that had large plantations in the area.

Missouri, initially part of the Purchase of Louisiana, was admitted as a slave state on August 10, 1821 as part of the Missouri Compromise.

In the early years of the nineteenth century, although a slave state, Missouri was not a fiery defender of slavery, so the controversy on this issue was very broad. When Abraham Lincoln won the presidential election, the state government convened a convention to reconsider its relationship with the Union; In the voting, the secessionist delegates were defeated and it was declared that there was no cause to break with the Union.

Therefore, during the Civil War, Missouri was divided: some parts adhered to the Union while others joined the Confederate states.

Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

After congress agrees on a proposed amendment, it then must be

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct answer here is D: Make representatives more responsive to public opinion

Explanation:

The way that elections work in Congress, and especially the House of Representatives, as established by the U.S Constitution, in the Senate 100 Senators, two from each state, are elected and serve unlimited 6-year terms, while the House of Representatives has 435 members, which are elected from each district in the United States, and they serve unlimited 2-year terms. Around the 1990´s, many reformists proposed, including the Republican Party, to change this in the Constitution, and established limited terms of office for both Senators and House members, but the proposals never passed. As of today, changes have not been made to the way that Congress works. However, the idea of placing 2-year terms in the House, was to make members more answerable to their constituents, as their election depends on the decision made by voters of each district. And made every 2 years, instead of longer, forces House members to work diligently for the needs of their voters, so that they can be reelected for the next term.

The Civil Rights Act expanded the federal government’s power.

Further Explanation:

The Civil Rights Act was one of the most important civil rights legislation passed in the 1960’s. This law essentially outlawed discrimination in the work place and public places on the basis of race, sex, national origin, gender, etc. The passing of this law was thanks in large part to the Civil Rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. The goal of this law was to gain legal and social equality, especially for African American citizens.

Besides protecting the rights of African American citizens and women, this law also expanded the power of the federal government. This is due to the fact that the federal government now has the power to enforce this law and penalize individuals/companies who violate this law. Ultimately, this would help more African American citizens to join the workforce without facing discrimination.

Which of the following events marked the end of American military involvement in the Vietnam War? 1.) the Kent State shootings 2.) the 1973 cease-fire 3.) the surrender of South Vietnam 4.) the passage of the Twenty-Sixth Amendment

[ad_1]

Answer:

Prevent African Americans from exercising their right to vote.

Explanation:

The 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (1870) granted the right to vote to all Americans regardless of their race, for the first time, which included African American, who had been harshly discriminated and mistreated for decades. This was a big step to put a halt on discrimination and gain equality of rights. However, in reality, many white Americans, especially Southerners, fiercely opposed to fully include black people as equal in society. Consequently, they began to enact a series of acts that prevented them from exercise their rights.

Some of the many legislation that Southern states passed during this “Jim Crow era” to prevent African Americans from exercising their right to vote was to impose poll taxes, which sometimes black people could not pay, and to force them to take literacy tests as a requirement to vote, which, again, they often failed.

Moreover, the Affirmative Action prohibits the discrimination as recently there is development in it, the employment, education or contracting are also focusing on Affirmative Action and in my point of view, this right should be supported because there are equal opportunities for all blacks and whites.

Qualified Immunity Means
