As the antebellum era came to a close improvements where made economically to growing America. The canals and roads set forth by Henry Clay’s American System where vastly improved and expanded by elongating and smoothing out the passage ways. The railroad system spider webbed out from more cities connecting people all across the continent. As the improvements spread, new immigrants flooded in from the old world looking for jobs. They looked to build and support their families in the steadily increasing American industrialism. They looked right away to the powerful transportation field. Due to the ease and growth of travel jobs in factories became more accessible to everyone. This increase in employment positively led to an increase in economic growth.
Set up by Henry Clay in in the early 1800s the American system provided transportation all throughout the United States. Shifting over to the gilded age these roads became paved, more accessible and easy to use. Roads spread from more and more cities, shortening the distance between the people of the nation. Railroads began to connect the major cities of San Diego and St. Louis or New York and Houston, making travel much faster. These commodities allowed for citizens to commute to job opportunities in other cities and take their families with them. The spread of people and likewise increase of employment helped to increase the prosperity of the nation.
All through the middle 1800s America witnessed a boom of immigration from all corners of the globe, looking for a new start to earn more money. Upon arriving in the industrial America, specifically the railroad companies welcomed them with open arms into their factory production lines. The corporations hired these foreigners for cheap wages to do high risk jobs. This increase of hands led to an increase of production which in turn led to the increase of revenue to the factory owners, increasing the prosperity of the America.
The factory system of production is the outcome of industrial revolution
in England during the last quarter of the eighteenth-century. Changes
in the methods of agricultural and industrial production, transport and
communications, overtime led to commercial orientation of society world
wide with emphasis on production of goods and services for market,
and not for self consumption, exchange of goods and services for money,
existence of profit motive, specialisation and division of labour, and
marketing activities in terms of buying, selling, and risk bearing. The
growth of capitalist enterprise in India started with mining and plantation,
followed by manufacturing industries. It was the factory system of
production which brought about a gradual development of the organised
sector of manufacturing industries in India.

Central American Common Market (CACM), association of five Central American nations was formed to facilitate regional economic development through free trade and economic integration. Established by the General Treaty on Central American Economic Integration signed by Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua in December 1960, its membership expanded to include Costa Rica in July 1962. It was one of four regional economic integration organizations created during the Latin American export boom of the 1960s. The CACM is headquartered in Guatemala City . The Central American Economic Council, the group’s chief policy-making organ, meets every three months. Composed of economic ministers, it coordinates regional economic integration. The council elects...
...and contrast Toyota’s manufacturing system with a conventional mass-production system.
The conventional mass-production system advocates that by producing a limited product line in massive quantities, companies can reach efficiency as well as gain economies of scale. However, this can create a large amount of extra costs such as the warehouse rents for the excess inventories. Moreover, the extreme division of labor and long production runs increase the probability of getting defects, which will eventually lower the profit of a company.
Toyota, on the other hand, applied mass production system differently in order to minimize the loss mentioned above. Firstly, auto parts were produced in small batches instead of a large amount on the purpose of reducing extra inventory costs. During this process, Toyota successfully reduced the stamping time from days to minutes, which increased the efficiency and decreased the manufacturing overhead. Also, due to the reduction in quantity, Toyota was able to expand their product diversity. Secondly, the labor division changed under this new manufacturing system. Workers were no longer responsible to a single task; they were asked to work together and seek out the errors during the production process. In that way, the inspection costs would be lower. The group work allowed workers to gain experience and skills; in other words, this is beneficial to the intangible...
American Native Nursery
American Native Nursery (ANN) is a relatively small, growing company located in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania that competes in two separate but complementary industries. These two industries are the nursery industry and the landscape services industry. ANN has formally been in business for nearly three and a half years. However, the company’s founders, Iveta Gigova and Mark Brownlee, have only applied their undivided attention to the company for the past one and a half years. While the company has seen fairly consistent revenue growth from year to year, there is still significant potential yet to be tapped.
Soon after beginning operations, ANN ran into an issue that many small businesses suffer from in the early years of their lives. The necessary management of resources and financing that allows a small business to start up winds up stripping the business of all capital before it can even begin making money. This issue has put a severe damper on ANN’s ability to grow and develop. ANN has not yet begun actively seeking investors. When ANN does eventually have capital contributed by outside investors, the resulting increase in production capacity and improvement of organizational structure will allow them to be more competitive with the major players in both industries that ANN competes in. Although ANN has seen...
The American Criminal Court System
June 7, 2014
Some say that crime is increasing, while others argue that crime is decreasing, in any event, it is not stopping and the Criminal Court System plays a crucial part in ensuring the safety of the American people and the communities they live in. The purpose of this paper is to examine and evaluate the development of the different court systems, their purpose and how they interact with each other to keep law and order in America today. This is an explanation of how the early legal codes, common laws, precedents, rules of jurisdiction and interpretation of the law impact the courts of today. In addition, this article will explain the dual court system and what role it plays in today’s criminal court system. Finally, a review of the new concepts in technology and how those concepts will assist in criminal investigations, court proceedings, the apprehension of criminals, as well as the assistance in freeing the thousands of innocent people incarcerated in our prisons today. Finally, an examination of how these new technologies will free the court systems from the overwhelming workloads they face today, so as the court becomes more productive in protecting the public, as well as helping to resolve the challenges the system has faced for...
...1. Describe the economic system known as the AmericanSystem.
2. Describe the changes that took place in American politics during the first decades of the 1800s, and explain reasons for these changes.
“AmericanSystem was a program for economic development (McNamara, R. 2012).” With the way that America was changing you had a younger generation that was eager for change as well. American politicians had gained a better trust from the people. Henry Clay and John Calhoun two Democratic-Republicans had embraced Jefferson’s vision for a small federal government. “Together, they advanced a vision that the federal government should encourage economic enterprise by internal improvements, develop a secure economic institution, and provide for the security of America’s economic interests (betheluniversityonline.net, 2012).” Internal improvements would be the building of roads and canals. Congress refused to help the First National Bank before the war it caused many banks to be created. These various banks created their own currency and credit, which caused lots of problems. Part of the AmericanSystem was the creation of the Second Bank of the United States. “Calhoun and Clay also supervised the passage of the Tariff of 1816, which taxed all incoming goods at the stiff rate of 25 percent (betheluniversityonline.net, 2012).” This would limit the...
...The American Prison System
The American Prison system is home to many of the nations criminals. The ever-growing population is due in part to incarceration, where an alternate punishment would suffice. The sustenance of the inmates is drawn directly of of society's pocket, in the form of taxes. I believe that we, as a nation, should focus on providing more sensible, economical ways for criminals to pay off their debt to the community.
There is no doubt that America is one of the world's largest and most formidable countries. Therefore, the prison system must follow accordingly, abiding by the government regulated rules and guidelines of equality and fairness. Unfortunately for the unsuspecting citizens of the United States, the statistics speak otherwise.
The prison system in America is undoubtedly the largest in the world, claiming the freedom of roughly four hundred and eighty six for every one hundred thousand Americans, on average. (Federal Bureau of Justice Consensus) The amount of inmates rises annually. At last consensus, midyear 2004, there were 2,131,180 inmates in the prison system, an increase of 2.3%. This increase was slightly less than that of previous years (3.5% since 1995) but is still an increase regardless. In fact this steady incline in total number of inmates has been increasing for over a decade.
Many people have never been to prison....
...Athens of ancient Greece had perhaps the most advanced system of government of the ancient world. The system of Athens was called a Democracy. That is, every citizen voted on everything. People have claimed that the United States is also a Democracy. This is not true. The government of the United States is a Constitutional Republic (Every). United States citizens vote for representatives, who then vote on the laws. They themselves are limited by a constitution. Democracy is a flawed government system. The Constitutional Republic is also flawed, however, it is better at safeguarding individual rights, when applied correctly. Therefore, a Constitutional Republic is a better system than a Democracy.
Athens was one of the largest Greek city states. (Stockton, 4). It was about one thousand square miles (Stockton, 4). Athens was founded in the 8th century BC (Muller). It was at first ruled by the college of archons. (Muller). After a term of one year, the archons became members of the Council of Elders (Muller). The people had a voice in the popular assembly, the Ekklesia (Muller). However, it did not have real power until 600 BC. By then, it was an established institution of Athens (Muller). It became the central policy making body in the 5th century. There were two main governmental bodies, the Assembly and the Council. (Acropolis). The Assembly was responsible for policy making. (Acropolis) The Council was responsible...
