The success of the US economy lies within the consumer driven market. The economy works on the principles of consumer needs and requirements resulting in customer satisfaction. The growth in the US small business is not as much as that of in other countries where there is a bright future in the small business. In the American scenario there are no small health insurance businesses and because many people do not want to get into this small business. In small business, there is no social safety.

In the 1870s America was a land of small farmers and small businessmen. Their role was to sell off their products to local and nearby markets. They believed that by being the master of their own business gave them freedom. They provided with good quality goods at lower prices.

Thursday, 24 September 2009
This is one of the most important questions, especially these days. Why? Because the economic parameters have been raising slowly for couple of weeks, and the prices of real estate properties have been raising to normal continuously in the past 2 months.
Many specialists think that this could be the sign that everything will come to normal in a short period, from now on, due to the fact that in the above domains, there are played every week more and more amounts of money.

Though, even if the reality is a bit different-the unemployment rate got to 9.8%-, the specialists motivate these actions as the act of understanding what the real needs are, and how much money the entrepreneurs have spent in vain until these times.

Obama Stance on Afghanistan PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 20 September 2009
Right now, in this very moment, in Afghanistan, there are about almost 50 thousand military troops coming from, citizens of the United States. Yet, the Obama administration, even if US is having really big financial problems, would like to send 20 more thousand military troops. As the officials have declared, the war on terror isn’t over yet, therefore these 20 thousand troopers could be just the first wave, because other 20 thousand might follow them.

The president, Barrack Obama, declared that he isn’t very sure for what he is doing, but the war upon terror in Afghanistan is more than a necessity. The biggest problem, the one that is powerful enough to oppose, is the fact that more than 58% of the US population is definitely against the war, and won’t sustain the actual administration.

Tuesday, 08 September 2009
The American political party system is dominated by two parties. They are the Republicans and the democrats. These two parties date back to very old time and have continued to be the two major political parties of the US politics. The symbol for the Republican Party is elephant and for the Democratic Party is a donkey. These two parties are often compared to the parties in Britain and Germany, wherein one party is economically interventionist and socially radical as compared to the other party. The blue states in US are won by the Democratic Party and the red states by the Republican Party.

The powers of the federal government are defined in the constitution. Here each state has a legislature, executive and the judiciary. Under the legislature come the House of Representatives and the senate. The judiciary comprises of the courts. The court is present in each state. The US politics is a divided democracy in terms of separation of powers between the legislatures, executive and the judiciary. Secondly, the democracy is divided on the basis of division of power between the federal government and the state government to make the functioning in a proper way. The political party system is divided politically also on the basis of the social issues.

Solution for Economic Recession: Supporting Small Businesses PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 05 September 2009
Even if the personal bankruptcy of the small entrepreneurs got to 41% from the total, economic experts say that, the only solution for the US –besides reducing costs in all the sectors- is to support the small businesses.

So, in order to support that segment, a couple of measures should be taken, measures meant to encourage the appearance of small businesses. For the business/economic sector, that would mean new working places, some money to the public budget and so on. But, in order to do that, the health insurance costs should be reduced pretty much, the taxes for the first year of existence should be cut off to minimum and so on. And only by doing this, the US economy might redress sooner.
