    CONCURRING OPINION: We concur with Justice White's interpretation of Tennessee State law.

He insists that the police act reasonably by evaluating whether the felon's interest in life outweighs the state's interest in seizing the felon ...

    Topic: The Classical Gold Standard between the period of the early 1870 s until the first world war, what was wrong with it and the collapse of the standard. I have picked this topic as it is of great interest to me. The reason being that South Africa was a big contributor to the way the Gold Standard played out in world finance. This was because of South Africa being one of the leading suppliers of Gold in the world As a result of its huge mining interests. This is important to me as I feel it...

'Trusts' (or holding companies) were created to bring together all the firms in a particular industry - The S...

  • Imbalances In International Trade
    811 words
    In classical economics imbalances in international trade were rectified automatically by the gold standard. A country in deficit would have to pay its debts in gold thus depleting gold reserves and would therefore have to reduce its money supply. The resulting fall in demand would reduce imports and the lowering of prices would boost exports; thus theoretically the deficit would be rectified (Rockwell, 10). In practice however this could seriously destabilize the economy of countries which ran a...

    Traditionally, the gold standard was not limited to one or two countries; it was an international system. With gold as money, international trade was conducted much more smoothly than it is now.

This also means that in a worldwide gold or specie standard, poor countries are not at the whim of international currency s...

Rockefeller's stake in the oil industry increased as the industry itself expanded, spurred by the rapidly spreading use of kerosene...
