Progressive Era Term Paper

… ¶ … Era

Theodore Roosevelt, America's 26th President, and Woodrow Wilson, America's 28th, both pursued a progressive political platform within their respective parties. Roosevelt's Republicanism digressed considerably from the party's platform prior to his election to the presidency in 1901. In the election of 1912, Roosevelt ran again with an offshoot of the Republican Party to emphasize his progressive politics. The Bull-Moose Party failed to attract voter attention, however, and Roosevelt's Democratic opponent Woodrow Wilson won the electoral vote. Wilson's stance on progressive issues such as anti-trust legislation did not differ as significantly from mainline Democratic policies or from Roosevelt's progressivism. Both Roosevelt and Wilson did forge new ground in Washington and initiated significant reforms with regard to the regulation of big business, public works,…. [read more]

Herbert Hoover Term Paper

… In other words, Hoover began applying the economic formulae planned over the past nine years.

Muhammad Ali in Egypt Thesis

… But they took away, for five centuries, the possibility of an independent Arab-dom, and Arab nationalists bore them considerable ill-will for it[footnoteRef:13]. The only 'Arab' state conquered by the Turks which was not in irremediable decay, was the Mamluk state of Egypt and Syria[footnoteRef:14]. The Mamluks themselves were a dynasty of Turkish slaves; and in any case they afterwards succeeded, as did all the North African provinces, in enjoying internal autonomy under Ottoman suzerainty. The claim that the caliphate had been transmitted to the Ottoman sultans was made only late in the history of the Empire. It was as Turkish rulers that they held their power, and only secondarily (if at all) as vice-regents of the Prophet. They preserved and even sharpened the distinction between…. [read more]

Women were still for the most part prevented from entering politics or getting corporate jobs, but they were being educated by new women's colleges and they used their education to engage in "association building" (they formed the Women's Trade Union League; the Women's Christian Temperance Union; and the National Consumers League).

China and the Economy Chinese Research Paper

… A pro-consumer policy can go a long way to alleviate this dependency. It will allow growth internally in regards to wealth and GDP. Instead of being reliant on foreign consumers, China can instead rely on its internal citizenry. In order to effectively accomplish this task, private enterprise must be allowed to flourish. In addition, through being a more consumer-based country, China is not subject to political and economic unrest within a particular country it exports to.

There are however, complications to this approach. For one, Chinese consumers are more apt to work for SOEs. Through friendship Chinese employees can rise to better positions faster as oppose to their smaller private enterprise counterparts. In addition, consumers believe that SOEs provide a better work environment as they…. [read more]

Industrialization, Immigration, Urbanization, and Transportation Research Paper

… Thus, it can be said that the industrialization helped the U.S. To receive sufficient and cheap labor force, and the immigrants to find a place of refuge and personal accomplishment.

History of Construction Technology of 12 Periods in Western Civilization Essay

… History Of Construction Technology of 12 Periods in Western Civilization

What makes humans different from other animals can be attributed to many things, but it usually begins with our conscious choice to explore the world and separate ourselves from nature through some mastery of it. With the advent of agriculture, humans were now congregating in population centers and living for both themselves and their gods. Religion has always taken a guiding hand through history and is intimately connected to the history of construction itself.

What pushes man to go beyond himself and create structures of immense stature and/or beauty? Only Gods can do that and have done that as evidenced in the still standing great pyramid of Giza and the Parthenon in Athens. Building these…. [read more]


Africa's Petroleum and China's Economic Research Paper

… The world oil market has recorded important trends. The global demand for oil is projected to grow by more than five percent by 2030 with the Middle East, China, and India accounting for seventy percent of the increase. China's oil demand is anticipated to expand during this period, and oil imports will grow. This implies that China will overtake the United States thereby becoming the largest world net importer of oil by 2020 (Bhaumik, 2009). It will reach approximately twenty-four million barrels daily net oil consumption by 2030. This suggests that nearly eighty percent of China's oil consumption will rely on imported oil. However, United States oil demand will decline or remain unchanged; thus, its oil imports are subject to fall to the extent that…. [read more]

Social, Economic and Political Results Term Paper

… This strike continued in one form or another from 1922 to 1928 (Davis, 1997).

While railroads aided big business, they also helped individuals, particularly small farmers. Railroads made it easier for settlers to get to new farmland.

All the Presidents during this era were aware that the country could unravel. They recognized that the South might eventually…. [read more]

Foreign Policy of China (Beijing Thesis

… But just as China (Beijing consensus)'s economic and military power does not yet match that of the United States, China (Beijing consensus)'s soft power still has a long way to go as demonstrated by a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll. China (Beijing consensus) does not have cultural industries like Hollywood, and its universities are not yet the equal of the United States. It lacks the many non-governmental organizations that generate much of U.S. soft power. Politically, China (Beijing consensus) suffers from corruption, inequality, and a lack of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. While that may make the "Beijing consensus" attractive in authoritarian and semi-authoritarian developing countries, it undercuts China (Beijing consensus)'s soft power in the West. Although China (Beijing consensus)'s new…. [read more]


New Zealand Council of Trade Unions (Ctu) Thesis

… ¶ … New Zealand Council of Trade Unions (CTU)

Many countries are experiencing a decline in union membership and some observers question whether unions are still needed given their diminished role in collective bargaining in recent years.

To determine the CTU's current status, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature to determine when the organisation was established, its membership, funding sources, its stance on political initiatives, and the view of the world it is attempting to promote. A discussion of some other organisations…. [read more]
