Trump uses sufficient statistical evidence and personal facts to support his claims during his speech. Halfway through his Presidential announcement, Trump states that he wants to lower the national debt. Trump explains to the audience how good of a businessman he is to make his statement believable. Trying to win over the audience with his expertise in business and the amount of money he has accumulated, Trump states, “But here, a total net worth of — net worth, not assets, not — a net worth, after all debt, after all expenses, the greatest assets — Trump Tower, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, Bank of America building in San Francisco, 40 Wall Street, sometimes referred to as the Trump building right opposite the New York — many other places all over the world. So the total is $8,737,540,00.” When Trump states his net worth after all debts are deducted, the audience is amazed at the amount of money he has accumulated over these past years. It makes the audience think that if Trump can make this much money running his businesses, he could lower the national debt. Trump also uses appropriate personal facts to support his claims. Half way through his speech, Trump states, “Ford announces a few weeks ago that they are going to build a $2.5 billion car and truck and parts manufacturing plant in Mexico…an I would sat if I was President, you’re going to take your cars and sell…

    ivy league school; but this can often be a facade or a sign of privilege. An example of an impressive trait often admired by Wall Street recruiters is people who are deemed as “smart”, which can be related to the idea of being impressive in terms of knowledge or education. But this smartness can be fabricated by people who look or dress “smart”, but aren’t necessarily more knowledgable than the rest of society. The manufacturing of such an appearance highlighted by Ho, who claims that “smartness…

One example is Herman Melville and his novella, Bartleby the Scrivener. This story encompasses an older lawyer working in Wall Street with fellow oddly named workers such as “Turkey,” “Nippers,”and “Ginger Nut.” The lawyer hires another quirky worker named “Bartleby,” who proves to be quite a challenge for…

    confrontation with J.P. Morgan and the heads of the Episcopal church, Moore realizes that the string of murders were resulting in an immigrant population that was “angry enough to stop showing up on Sunday and coughing up what little money they have. (Carr, 300)” Rather than trying to comfort the immigrant population as churches usually do in moments of hardship, the Episcopal church leaders tried to silence the population with bribes and threats to keep their income flowing. In some ways, the…

    New York City's population increased from 124,000 in 1820 to 814,000 in 1860. The population growth resulted in a rapid rise in real estate prices that created a market for tall buildings like those that hem in the lawyer's office. The high cost of space in lower Manhattan also forced workers to search for cheaper housing elsewhere, thus creating the story's austere Wall Street setting that during evenings and Sundays is virtually devoid of human life. The building that houses the law office,…

    The article I chose, written by Shan Wang for Nieman Lab, focused around paywalls, specifically centered around the Wall Street Journals and their paywalls. A paywall is when an online media outlet charges a fee for access to their news content. The article discusses how paywalls are negative because casual readers are at a disadvantage. They are unable to test out a news source before committing to a payment. The article then describes two types of paywalls: hard and soft. Hard paywalls allow…

    With USA Today debuting in 1982, it has continued to focus on innovative avenues for continued success and growth as the preferred news source. Personally, I am a very visual news consumer; therefore, what I enjoy most about the USA Today newspaper is the visual and eye catching content it has embedded within the paper -- digital and print versions. The vision the stakeholders had prior to the launch of USA Today was to have a unique approach to an audience and provide more news in less time…

First guy that I saw was Belphegor, who immediately tried to eviscerate me. I get nicked on the arm, and stab him in the chest with one blade, and the forehead with the other.

    “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.” So preaches Michael Douglas in his Oscar-winning role as immoral businessman Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. Stone’s follow-up to his Best Picture winner Platoon¸ Wall Street does not have quite the reputation Platoon does. I have not seen Platoon, but it seems that this makes sense because Wall Street is not a very entertaining or interesting movie because, although greed may be good, Stone forgot that clarity is good too. The plot of…
