      Citizens who wish to vote would first have to pass a test of their knowledge about current events and the platforms of the candidates. As the economy has grown more complex, statistics also reveal over the last century a sharp long-term trend away from self-employment toward working for others. On the whole, however, governments tend to go for large, sweeping changes by altering the monetary landscape. A major motivation was to keep California in the Union. Free enterprise refers to a set of legal rules regarding commercial interaction.

The railroads were at one time vital to national security and merited subsidy for that reason alone. It provides welfare and unemployment benefits to people who cannot support themselves, either because they encounter problems in their personal lives or lose their jobs as a result of economic upheaval; it pays much of the cost of medical care for the aged and those who live in poverty; it regulates private industry to limit air and water pollution ; it provides low-cost loans to people who suffer losses as a result of natural disasters; and it has played the leading role in the exploration of space, which is too expensive for any private enterprise to handle. Capitalist ideology has proclaimed that the market's "invisible hand" will best advance the interests of historical progress, that taxes on the rich and regulations on big businesses must be reduced because only the "risk-takers" know where resources can best be allocated, that any sort of government intervention to improve the living conditions of workers, the poor, the elderly and jobless youth creates a "climate of dependency," that government cannot simply "throw money" at problems, etc. As defined by historian Greg Grandin and economist Immanuel Wallerstein, the destructive nature of capitalism moves beyond workers and communities to natural resources, where the pursuit of growth and profits tends to ignore or overwhelm environmental concerns. Fortunately, the government only uses its ability to protect the most systemically essential industries like banks, insurers, airlines, and car manufacturers.

      What can be learned from our own history? On these questions and others, classroom materials are not only shaded by politics, but are also helping to shape a generation of future voters. The idea still has its supporters inside and outside Congresswho argue that space is now too important to lack a dedicated military branch. The role, reach, and impact of government is directly affected by a range of factors: 1. Get the Facts.

Proponents of capitalism espouse competitive and free markets and voluntary exchanges instead of the forced exchange of labor or goods. A similar argument raised by supporters of capitalism, and therefore often by critics of socialism, is that competition considered a basic human trait cannot be legislated away without undermining the will to achieve more, and that without proper compensation for one's efforts, the incentive to do well and be productive or more productive is taken away.
