One interesting part of the economy that is illustrated by the graph of employment and GDP growth listed below is the rise in part time employment since the recession.

Mental Health Policy Issues Essay

… This seems to be the purpose of most local mental health agencies.

This is also true of the professionals who provide the services needed by people with mental illness, or even those who have temporary conditions that resemble a mental health diagnosis due to a traumatic situation. The needs of a community can be encased in the overall offerings of a larger, either national or international, organizations, but there have to be local agencies that understand the needs of the people who are located in that particular area. For example, in North Hollywood, the Center for Individual and Family Counseling provides all of the services common to agencies around the country, but also provides sessions geared to individuals who live and work in the area.….

George W. Bush Administration Policy on Syria Essay

… Syria

An Analysis of the U.S.-Syrian Conflict

This paper will analyze the G.W. Bush Administration's justification for conflict with Syria and show how the disparate reasons of internal organs within the White House and those offered to the public by way of the national press suggest that an ulterior motive much broader in scope and ideological in nature was (and is) actually the basis for justification. In doing so, this paper will utilize Conflict Theory to help bring into perspective the opposing rationales that are presented throughout the analysis.

The Bush Administration had very clear reasons for initiating conflict with Syria, outlined by such neo-conservative think tanks as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) (members of which were highly placed in the Administration…. [read more]

Students Complete a Policy Analysis Essay


Regarding the provision of healthcare, America is far from the envy of the world. "50% of U.S. personal bankruptcies are due to medical bills...Great Britain, Japan, Taiwan, Switzerland and Germany -- spend roughly half as much on health care as the U.S. spends, and have better outcomes" (Swenson 2009). Not all countries are completely nationalized -- some have private insurers, but private insurance companies are prohibited from profiting from basic care. All have mandates that citizens must buy health insurance, and provide financial support for citizens who cannot afford to do so.

The U.S. stands alone in the design and the waste generated by its healthcare system, and cannot afford to do so. The ACA was a step in the right direction to expand…. [read more]

Germany West East Term Paper

… 9

In building the Weimar Triangle, Germany is engaging in what has traditionally been NATO. NATO has traditionally been perceived as a community of states where the cooperation is based upon the respect of the fundamental values of democracy and market economy. This is increasingly a cornerstone of Poland's Western European Union (WEU) efforts with its partners such as Germany and France.

As long as Western countries respect the fundamental concept of Europe's integration, that is of democracy and free markets, they can count on the Poles to climb on board efforts to extend Western efforts (German and French) influence there.10

The new politics in Europe is being played out in the East. However, it is a continually more marginalized game that Germany is playing,…. [read more]

Limits Have on the Behavior Research Paper

… ¶ … Limits have on the Behavior of the Members of Congress?

Over the years, the issue of term limits (on the national level) has been increasingly brought to the forefront. This is because there is a commonly held belief that those individuals who are allowed to serve in office will become corrupted by the special interests. This is when they will use their seniority to enact pork barrel spending projects in their own districts. What makes this issue so challenging, is that many advocates of terms limits will point out: how the President of the United States and 15 states are subject to these kinds of restrictions.

Commenting about the impact of these limitations is the President of U.S. Term Limits (Phillip Blumenthal). They…. [read more]

… Mental Health Counseling

Many commentators and psychologists believe that victims of any disaster face an uphill battle against depression and post-traumatic stress. The reason for depression could be shock and loss of personal or possession. The survivors of disasters, such as the Greensburg tornado would require mental health counseling (Blaikie et al. 1994)

The respondents of the study by Paul, Che, Stimers and Dutt (2009) stated that not a large number of the survivors needed mental health counseling. However, they conceded that mostly people older than sixty years old benefited from counseling. They also stated that the temporary shelters provided by the authorities had adequate resources to provide counseling to all those who needed it. Moreover, the individuals who received counseling expressed satisfactory perspectives regarding…. [read more]

Reagan Foreign Policy Term Paper

… Reagan Foreign Policy

Regan Foreign Policy (Paper 1)

The Reagan Administration's policies were focused on counteracting the Soviet Union's military buildup from the 1960s into the 1980s. In retrospect, some of his supporters such as Steven Hayward claimed that Reagan's real intentions were to win the Cold War (although this was never mentioned during his presidency). He advocated a policy of "Peace through Strength" and increased military spending on conventional and nuclear weapons. (Hayward, 2009, pg. 99). Essentially, the Cold War was a central them to Reagan's worldview. Regardless of the new threats were emerging at the end of his second term.

Elasticity of Demand Elasticities Essay

… As the prices rise, the consumers tend to reduce the quantity of good that they demand. A drop in the prices leads the consumers to increase the amount of goods that they demand. There are several measurements for elasticity. One of the measurements is the consumer's change in the level of consumption in a similar period when a price change is noted. The other measurement of elasticity is the consumer's shift in consumption levels across various time periods.

A price elasticity of demand indicates the percentage of change in the amount of goods demanded that arises from a one percent (1%) increase in the prices. Demand can therefore be said to be elastic in a relative sense, relatively inelastic or even unitary elastic.
