Arising in the late Eighteenth and early Nineteenth Century, socialism developed as a reaction to the hardships caused by capitalism and industrial revolution.

  • Solutions To Many Persistent Social Problems
    460 words
    The issue that all nations must help in setting up of a global university is a controversial one. On one hand it may help in finding solutions to many persistent social problems that the world faces today.
