Which of the three economic systems (market, planned, and mixed) do you believe address the issue of scarcity the best? Give two examples of why this system is superior to the other choices.

[ad_1]

Scarcity is the fundamental challenge that all individuals and nations must confront. Everyone faces some limitations, so we all have to make choices where we limit or allow ourselves to something. 

Economists generally recognize four types of economic systems traditional, traditional, command, market and mixed.

A traditional economic system is shaped by tradition. The work that people do, the goods and services they provide, how they exchange resources… all tend to follow a pattern. The traditional system is bad at addressing scarcity because scarcity is formed off of new requirements people have through the ages and a traditional system would not evolve just as our requirements would.

In a planned economy, the government controls the economy. The state decides how to use and distribute resources. The government regulates prices and wages; it may even determine what sorts of work individuals do.
Socialism is a prime example of a planned economy. Socialism does not work because it is not consistent with the fundamental principles of human behavior. The failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores incentives.

Market economies allow all economic decisions to be made by individuals. The unrestrained interactions between individuals and companies in the marketplace determine what happens to all the good and resources.Individuals choose how to invest their personal resources and individuals decide what to consume. Within a pure market economy,  the government is entirely absent from economic affairs.

A mixed economic system combines elements of the market and command economy. Many economic decisions are made in the market by individuals. But the government also plays a role in the allocation and distribution of resources.

If scarcity is looked at on a macro level, the best economic system is mixed because it allows the government to also plays a role in the allocation and distribution of resources, while the individuals still stay happy because they have some control. The only problem is the eternal question of what the right mix between the public and private sectors of the economy should be.

There is no point to look at it on a micro level because almost no country is small enough to be considered on that level.

The key issue concerning new forms of radio technology, such as satellite radio, is whether listeners will:

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:54 AM

I think the answer is if listeners would devote some of their time to listen and if they would pay for an amount to have premium accounts so they can further have more features and gain privileges on songs that they wanted to hear. Another concern is if they had the right design and strategy to gather enough or more listeners on the radio station so they can maintain operation.

When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

The pattern of increasing public interest in an issue after media coverage followed by waning media attention and public interest after government attention ot the issue is known as the

[ad_1]

You didn’t provide answer choices, but the most likely answer is:

Explanation:

Thomas Hobbes pointed to the social contract as the source of a government’s authority, saying that a ruler got his power from the people over whom he ruled, not directly from God. But Hobbes’ argument still supported a strong monarch style of government for the sake of a country’s security and stability.  Whoever was put in charge of government needed to have absolute power, in his view.  Thomas Hobbes published his political theory in Leviathan  in 1651, following the chaos and destruction of the English Civil War.  He saw human beings as naturally suspicious of one another, in competition with each other, and evil toward one another as a result.  Forming a government meant giving up personal liberty, but gaining security against what would otherwise be a situation of every person at war with every other person.  So once the people gave power to a monarch, then that ruler needed to have absolute authority in order to maintain security and stability in the social order.

1. The answer is “C”.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.  

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

2. The answer is “A”.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

The cartoon below titled “Where the Blame Lies” was created in the late 1800s: A political cartoon shows Uncle Sam standing on a platform. A man stands next to Uncle Sam and points out to a crowd of people. They appear to be entering the United States after exiting ships in New York Harbor. The people seem to be walking in a wild manner. The Statue of Liberty and the American flag can be seen in the background. © The Granger Collection/Image Quest 2012 Which political issue does this cartoon illustrate? the effects of unchecked immigration the health effects of the factory system the effects of low American wages the effects of prohibiting alcohol on society

[ad_1]

The correct answer is A) the effects of unchecked immigration.

The political that this cartoon illustrates is the effects of unchecked immigration.

The cartoon describes a situation of immigrants. So, it illustrates the effects of unchecked immigration with so many people entering the United States with no order at all. The situation shows the risk of a lack of immigration policy could have on the country and the possible consequnences of such a few restrictions to enter the U.S.

The sign that says “Baggage the only Requisite”, showed how easy was for people to enter the United States. And the pice of paper on the floor, besides Uncle Sam, with the names of “Mafia in New Orleans”, “Anarchist in Chicago”, and “Socialist in New York”, is an example of the strong journalism critic of that time.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

      For some people, global warming is a myth. For people familiar with the facts, it is no myth. It is hard truth that demands hard answers.
     Over the past 50 years or so, automobiles, factories, and power plants have poured many thousands of tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is whats called ” a greenhouse gas .” It traps the suns radiation and increases the global temperature. During the past two decades, we have seen some of the hottest temperatures ever recorded. Also, the hottest summers have happened in the past five years. Unusual weather patterns have soaked some parts of the United States with rain. Meanwhile, the western states are fighting over water as lakes and rivers are drying up. Most shocking of all is the steady melting of the Arctic ice caps. Ice depths that were 300 feet are now closer to 100 feet. Ice has retreated northward into the Arctic Sea for hundreds of miles. 
     What can we conclude from all this ? The answer seems to depend on your point of view. Senator Mike Blevins was quoted as saying, ” Global warming is an unproved theory. We can’t afford environmental regulations that hurt the economy.” Expressing a different opinion, Senator Morton Giles commented, ” We’ve made a bargain with Satan. We’re trading short-term profits for the misery of future generations.” As arguments rage over the reality of global warming, most scientists agree on the following : global temperatures are rising, ocean temperatures are increasing, and climate patterns have been altered. Many scientists also feel there’s a real threat of sea levels rising as the polar ice caps melt.
     What can we do to control global warming ? Proposals include the following : improve automobile mileage, develop alternative energy sources, and reduce American dependence on foreign oil.

Holden takes issue with the shallowness of society. In what ways does Lillian Simmons represent the shallowness of society? Who else represents shallowness to holden?

[ad_1]

Mr. Antolini had married an older woman who shared similar intellectual interests. When he arrives at his apartment, Holden finds Mr. Antolini in a bathrobe and slippers, drinking a highball. Holden and Mr. Antolini discuss Pencey, and Holden tells how he failed Oral Expression (debate). He tells Holden how he had lunch with his father, who told him that Holden was cutting classes and generally unprepared. He warns Holden that he is riding towards some kind of terrible fall. He says that it may be the kind where, at the age of thirty, he sits in some bar hating everyone who comes in looking as if he played football in college or hating people who use improper grammar. Furthermore, he tells Holden that the fall that he is riding for is a special and horrible kind, and that he can see Holden dying nobly for some highly unworthy cause.

He gives Holden a quote from the psychoanalyst Wilhelm Stekel: “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.” He finally tells Holden that once he gets past the things that annoy him, he will be able to find the kind of information that will be dear to his heart. Holden goes to sleep, and wakes up to find Mr. Antolini’s hand on his head. He tells Holden that he is “simply sitting here, admiring” but Holden interrupts him, gets dressed and leaves, claiming that he has to get his bags from Grand Central Station and will be back soon.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

In Chapter 24, Mr. Antolini is the third consecutive person whom Holden encounters who forces him to confront his difficulties. Like both Carl Luce and Phoebe, Mr. Antolini senses that Holden suffers from serious problems, and definitively tells him that he is headed for a fall. However, where Mr. Antolini departs from the previous two confrontations is that he grasps the seriousness of the situation. His observation that Holden will end up having contempt for nearly everyone he meets has been made in different forms by others, yet only Mr. Antolini senses the mortal seriousness of the situation. When he quotes Wilhelm Stekel, he implies that he expects Holden to commit suicide as a form of foolish martyrdom.

Mr. Antolini is perhaps the only adult in the story whom Holden can trust and respect; Holden even does not derisively call him “old” as he does with other adults, instead referring to him by his proper title. However, like all other adults in the story, Holden feels that Mr. Antolini betrays his trust. When Holden awakens to find Mr. Antolini touching his head, he immediately concludes the worst, suspecting him of “flitty” behavior. However, Holden is a notoriously unreliable narrator, coming to Mr. Antolini’s apartment inherently suspicious of all adults and perhaps still drunk from the evening’s escapades.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

Answer:

Georgia didn’t send representatives to the First Continental Congress, for although Georgians opposed British trade regulations, many hesitated to join the revolutionary movement. They were self-sufficient, and a growing colony. And they thought they needed the protection of British troops against a possible Indian attack.

Explanation:

The First Continental Congress was a delegate convention of 12 of the thirteen North American colonies held on September 10, 1774, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to send a written letter to King George III and Parliament calling for an end to the sanctions imposed by the Metropolis (England).

All colonies formed their association to ban trade with Great Britain.

Georgia did not send representatives, for although Georgians opposed British trade regulations, many hesitated to join the revolutionary movement. They were self-sufficient, and a growing colony. And they thought they needed the protection of British troops against a possible Indian attack.

Georgian delegates met at a provincial congress in Savannah on January 18, 1775, to discuss whether they should join the Association and elect representatives for the Second Continental Congress.

Those who were elected refused to go to Philadelphia. St. John’s Parish, acting alone, sent Lyman Hall.
