American Government
Chapter 2: Part 1
GOT EXAMS BACK
CLASS THIS WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY AND NEXT MONDAY
Domestic Policy (Ch. 13)
Poverty Alleviation
Money is an Issue
Redistributive policies (takes money from one person and gives it to someone
else) causes conflict
Means Testing – want to make sure you are broke (different poverty
thresholds in different areas), faulty because if you make even a little more
than the threshold, then they won’t help you, can act as a dis-incentive, can be
avoided by graduating the program, re-distributing, and better testing
No one wants to be rich
Groups that benefit
Elderly – entitlement
The Middle Class – Tax Code (property-owners), can save more and
benefit from the system
Wealth is inter-generational (goes from one generation to the next)
Retirement programs will eventually bankrupt us
Foreign Policy (Ch.14)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
