Argue the main factors in the growth of the American economy from 1877 to 1918.

3-4 pages, double spaced. RUBRIC IS ATTACHED! 

Industrialization heavily revolutionized the United States between Reconstruction and the first World War. Tycoons ushered in the age of Big Business, as inhabitants of United States became a labor force that transformed the nation into one of the top Economic hubs in the world. The drive to acquire natural resources and output manufactured products at phenomenal rates led to increased employment opportunities for internal and external migrant labor and achieved record profits for the leaders of industry.

Nevertheless, the new economic landscape stoked tensions between groups of different economic, racial, ethnic, and political communities.  As tycoons built monopolies, labor unions used both politics and violence to claim their share of the profits. Increase economic opportunities for Immigrants, African-Americans, and women occurred in this period, but these opportunities as some face restrictions for entrance into certain positions and unions. The effectiveness of Local, State, and Federal Governments in managing the influence of Laissez Faire Capitalism changed the role of politicians in economics.

For this essay, argue the main factors in the growth of the American economy from 1877 to 1918. Additionally, discuss how these factors affected changes in American society in this period.

This essay requires students to answer the prompt by choosing a factor in the US economy that led to America’s industrial growth in the late 1800s and early 1900s. There can be more than one factor. However, students must conclusively demonstrate why these factors are more important than other similar circumstances. Examples of factors include discoveries of natural resources or the development of a tycoon class.
Then, show how a chosen factor contributed to social or political changes in American society. Why did labor unions grow in membership or how the enforcement of anti-monopoly acts became politically important?

Solving China’s population problem?

  
China has been the world’s most populous state for many centuries, and during the population explosion of the 20th century it was also one of the fastest growing.  As a result, China embarked on a vigorous population-control program that imposed a one child limit per couple.  Enforced by sometimes draconian methods, this policy had the desired effect:  by the mid-1980s China’s annual population growth was down to 1.2%, and by 2012 the rate had dipped to just 0.47 % (less than half the worldwide average of 1.2%).
The one child policy had its desired economic impact, but its other results were less salutary.  China is a dominantly patriarchal society, where male children are much preferred; rates of female fetus abortion, infanticide, and abandonment skyrocketed, resulted in a gender imbalance that raises concern for the future.  What about future brides and mothers?
Also, China has an aging population as its proportion of youngsters shrank while the older age mushroomed.  Is there going to be a sufficient number of workers in the younger age groups to support the ever-expanding older population?  China might grow old before it grows rich.
As a result China changed it’s policy in 2015 and is now allowing couples to have up to 2 children.  

  How would you solve China’s population problem?  Would you limit each couple to have 2 children and mandate they abort any others above that number, go back to the previous 1 child per couple policy or risk over population and put no limits on the number of children you can have?
