Analyze british

W3 kevin

We need the support of Britain and we need to support Britain! A strong unified British Empire is good for everyone. If we continue to support Britain through taxes and trade, they will continue to protect us here in the Colonies. The reason the French and Indian War was fought was to protect us, why should be not be taxed for the service of our mother country.  The colonies would be weak without the support of Britain, without their support we would have to worry about invasion from other countries. The money we are being tax is going to support the British economy that was depleted during the French and Indian war. Though we are paying taxes, we continue to profit from trade with England. They are….

Despite its vast oil wealth, Nigeria has struggled to achieve economic development.

While Nigeria enjoyed a successful democratic transition in 1999, in recent years, the

country’s economic woes have been complicated by struggles with political violence

rooted in ethnic and religious divisions.

Imagine you have been appointed as a special advisor to President Muhammadu

Buhari. You have been tasked with outlining a political and economic plan to stabilize

Week of March 29 The Economy and Babies Boom

Truman’s administration and most Americans feared the Great Depression returning with the end of World War II. Economists remembered the recession that hit after the troops returned at the end of World War I and many predicted a repeat. It turned out however, the US economy boomed in the aftermath of war.

book review

1. Papers should be at least three pages in length, 12 point, using a standard font like Times or Calibri or something similar.

 Roughly half of your  Discussion grade (40 points) comes from making an original thread post of at least 300-words. This post should feature your answer to the question(s). It should include at least a thesis statement, and two or three relevant pieces of evidence from the primary source documents to support to support your argument.
