Effectiveness of our system of Government

Some say the U.S government system is not effective, but I beg to differ. From my perspective, our government is one of the most effective worldwide, for example our government guarantees: civil rights, social programs, and our stable economy. A very important function the U.S government provides us with is our civil rights. Jonathan Smith of the constitution law review states “ The U.S guarantees that all citizens of the United States regardless of sex, race, or, religion have the same equal rights under the law.” Wherever you come from in America all citizens have the same equal right. Our civil rights protect personal liberty, guarantees us our equal access to public services, and It also ensures us the right to vote. Voting gives us the opportunity to be heard in our government our freedom of speech which is part of the 1st amendment gives us the right to say whatever is on our mind without being punished. Our civil rights have created Americas government system stable and powerful. Besides this the U.S government is also stable in social programs for citizens. Not only does the government provide us with our civil rights, but it also provides us with social programs. Social Programs include: welfare, housing ( section 8), health care, and federal deposit insurance. Stated by David Broder from the Ashes of The New Deal “ In the united states has developed a variety of social programs that meet the needs of our citizens, students, the unemployed, the homeless and those considered beneath the poverty line.” Many civilians don't have the money to to fund their family or are not able to buy food. The government provides people with welfare who are in need of money to fund their family. Welfare is the financial support given to people in need and the government…...

The Misinformation of Our Education System

...The education system in America lacks the communicational connection. In the essay “The Banking Concept of Education,” Paulo Freire relates his personal experiences of oppression in his native country. Freire argues there are two types of conceptual tools; Banking concept of education and problem posting method. In the tradition type of education, however, the teacher stores the information the student listens. The goal of banking education was to immobilize the student within the existing structure, conditioning them into memorize the materials. I felt the ability to overcome the fear of memorize lessons. In a sense, we all are a result of “banking” education. Freire concept of education, he conveys the student do not think for themselves. I feel a student should have the initiative to ask questions until they receive a greater understanding then the knowledge is learn rather than just delivered. He also writes on the problem posting method when the student listens and the teacher are the narrator. This method leads the student to memorize the teacher content. I feel, the more engaged the teacher is about the material the more the student is also engaged. The education becomes a “communion” between participants in a dialogue; rather than a one sided opposition. The oppressed must test their own internalization or the oppressed will not think for them. Students can’t learn much just by memorization and repeating what they see or hear. Freire used the example “four times......

Economy, Efficiency and Effectiveness as Performance Indicators in Government Agencies

...Economy, Efficiency and Effectiveness as Performance Indicators in Government Agencies Table of Contents Executive summary 3 Introduction 4 Economy 4 Effectiveness 5 Efficiency 6 Conclusion 7 References…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..8 Executive summary Evaluation of performance is part of managing performance. Public agencies use economy, effectiveness and efficiency to determine performance. All these three parameters relate to inputs and outputs of the agency (Cutler, Cutler & Waine, 1997, p. 98). However, measurement of inputs and outputs presents some challenges. Thus, during measurement of performance of a public agency one has to make a choice of what to measure among the three parameters in order for performance to be evaluated effectively. For instance, economy relate to input, efficiency relate to input and output while effectiveness relate to output (Chai, 2009, p. 45). Thus, the effectiveness of these concepts in determination of performance depends largely on the methods adapted to measure indicators of these parameters. Introduction The process of managing performance involves setting social outcomes and strategic plans that entails focusing strategic plan on social outcomes, identifying value drivers, focusing managerial attention on activities...

Effectiveness of Employee Counseling at the Local Government Unit

...EFFECTIVENESS OF EMPLOYEE COUNSELING AT THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNIT OF DIFFUN, QUIRINO I. THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND The Importance of Developing and Preserving Human Resources Counseling programs geared specifically for employees in or near their work settings have grown steadily in recent years in the Philippines, primarily because employers have come to recognize the importance of developing and preserving valuable human resources. Managers have begun to listen to the ideas of people like Peters and Waterman, whose best-selling book on corporate excellence exhorts, Treat people as adults. Treat them as partners: treat them with dignity; treat them with respect. Treat them - not capital spending and automation - as the primary source of productivity gains… In other words, if you want productivity and the financial reward that goes with it, you must treat your workers as your most important asset (1982). In general, counseling services for employees can be divided into two major categories, namely, those dealing with personal problems and those dealing with career development. The employee counseling programs that deal with personal problems will focus on employees’ mental and physical health and deal with personal problems that might, even indirectly, affect job performance. Those that deal with career development programs will use assessment, counseling, planning, and training to help individuals make and act on career decisions within the context of the......

U.S. Citizenship and Government System

... I have never really been interested in government until now. I have always felt government was just full of people wanting too much power and corrupt. As I got older I started being more interested in what is going on in our government. I started to feel like if I expressed my views openly somehow it would make some kind of difference. I soon found out that my views did not make a difference at all. So I never voted until this last election for Obama. I only voted because my family insisted that it was important that I voted. When I was eighteen years old I helped some community people hand out voting information the only citizen involvement I have done. Honestly, I do not know if our government system can change. Change is a very strong word. I think it may be able to evolve with participation of voters. All it takes is time, never impossible. I feel that all the donations for campaign should be limited. If the person running for office is good they should not need so much money to prove they are worthy of the position. The campaigns should be able to be done on television without all the holding donations from celebrities and wealthy people. Politicians should always be reminded they are Americans before democrats or liberals. I believe no one has any influence on government policy or practices. We as people may voice our opinions on policies, but are we really heard. Of course they tell us we are heard, but not at all. Government may have us vote on different bills.......

Effectiveness of Accounting System in Legazpi City

...CHAPTER 1 The Problem Introduction Small-scale business, small-scale industry and small-scale entrepreneurship are used interchangeably to mean a small-scale industry firm. Its deliberation was to refer to the operational definition. Therefore, small businesses are common in many countries, depending on the economic system in operation. A reasonable number of business establishments for instance, small-scale enterprise of different sizes and nature in Nigeria at large and Benue State in particular have accounting system of recording their business transactions. There is no universally accepted definition of small-scale enterprise (S.S.Es) because; the classification of business into small or large scale is subjective. Rather, each country tends to define this category of enterprises depending on the scope and range of activities covered by them and the amount of capital required of them to finance their operations in a particular market economy they are set up particularly, the level of a country is development largely determines the scope and range of activities and the capital base requirement of the small-scale enterprise operating therein. In countries such as Nigeria, United State of America, Britain and Canada, small-scale business in defined in terms of annual turnover and the number of paid employees. In Nigerian for instance, the definition of small-scale enterprises has varied from time to time and according to institution as in other countries. Also,......

Our Economic System

...Our Economic System Prior to describing which economic system is best suited for handling a crisis of epic proportions (hurricane, flood, blizzard, forest fire, etc.) one needs to specify for whom exactly it is supposed to be “best suited”. If the answer is “for the greatest number of people” regardless of socio-economic status, race, etc., than it is certainly a centrally planned authoritarian economic system (such as socialism, communism and other Leftist derivatives with a strong government role in economy). The reason why the “socialist” system is better in countering crisis is because it is created under the notion of socialist justice or the “to each according to the need, and from each according to ability” principles. The capitalist system on the other hand focuses on the notion of “to each according to one’s investment” principles. In practice, in an abstract capitalist system, a crisis of epic proportions (hurricane, flood, blizzard, forest fire, etc.) is a true windfall for some people and a nightmare for others. For instance, if you own the only gas station that got left after a hurricane why not increase the price by 10 times? Or maybe even by 100 times if you also know that all the food stores were also destroyed and people would either pay your gas price to drive to the nearest store or die from starvation (Welch, 2007). Such behavior is absolutely normal and encouraged under the capitalist......

State of Our Healthcare System

...THE STATE OF OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM VIEWED THROUGH THE EYES OF A HEALTHCARE LEADER SAMANTHA CHERY KAPLAN UNIVERSITY ABSTRACT Our healthcare system has changed dramatically throughout the years. Many concerns are about the quality of services given to the patients, as well as the direction in which our system is heading today. One important issue that is very evident is that, the kind of services given to patients and community in our healthcare facilities is a reflection of the kind of leadership and management that it contains. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the great accomplishments of healthcare leader, Ronald G Spaeth. The paper will also highlight on how his philosophies and leadership methods have contributed to the success of his career and the impact that it’s had on the healthcare system today. Ronald G Spaeth is a pioneer in the health care industry. He has dedicated his life works to creating, ensuring an effective system for its employees and community. Spaeth obtained his education from Western Reserve University in Ohio where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Following his undergrad studies, he went on to pursue a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Chicago in Illinois (Grazier, 2005pg. 144). After completing his education Spaeth advanced full force into the work field, building up a very extensive and impressive resume. He worked for Evanston Hospital from 1972-1983 serving various types of roles......

The Systematic Breakdown of Our Economic System

...When I look around and see the general direction the quality of “living” is going I find myself constantly asking what the f*ck is happening here? From what I have come to understand is that the economic system that has been set up is set up in such a way to help the few that rest towards the top of the proverbial pyramid maintain a level of wealth; all the while ensuring those in the middle and at bottom struggle to stave off bankruptcy and poverty. Sadly the system affects more than just financials, evidence of this can be found virtually anywhere from the supermarket to the car dealership. The quality of the products that are being produced now-a-days is crap and becoming crappier which in turn is causing the quality of life for those that are not towards the top of the proverbial pyramid to sink to new lows. I intend to “follow the money” as far as I can possibly can without ending up with a three inch thick book and determine not only how but why the quality of life in our given society is becoming progressively sh*tty. What I am seeing is that our ever lowing standard of living can be attributed to the ever worsening unequal economic gap between the top1% and the middle - low class. Taking a look back to the economic situation in 1928, and comparing it to the economics of 2007 you can begin to see a pattern; what happened right after 1928? the market crashed, and in 2007? Another crash; and of course one cannot overlook the fact that 1928 and 2007 were the two years......

Competitiveness and Performance Effectiveness for Health Care It Systems

...Competitiveness and Performance Effectiveness for Health Care IT Systems Ahnna M Atkins HSA 315 Health Information Systems Dr. Andrea Strayer Univerity Competitiveness and Performance Effectiveness for Health Care IT Systems Characteristics and Roles of a CTO and a CIO Information technology (IT) has seen many improvements and this means that all organizations have to embrace these technologies for them to remain competitive in the market. In order to improve services in health care institutions, majority of organizations across the world have embraced the use of IT in their operations. IT enables organizations to make their work easier because of the improved systems of communication. Communication between employees and the management has been made easier, this means that information could be in real time. Health care organizations have priorities, which must be met at all times in order to ensure that patients and other stakeholders are happy when dealing with the organization. Health care institutions' managements must avoid responsible people who would run all IT processes for the organization. Although many people frequently confuse the roles of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO),they each have well defined roles which he or she must perform in order to ensure smooth running of the health care organization (Rothfeder & Driscoll, 2013). A CTO It is worth noting that......

Government Infringement on Our Bodies

...Government infringement on our bodies “Colorado pulled in $2 million in taxes related to the sale of recreational marijuana… in January 2014 alone. Combined with taxes on sales from medical marijuana, that number jumps to $3.5 million (Phillips par.2).” Let that sink in for a second, 3.5 million dollars in one month. Think of all the uses that money could be put towards, Education, Prevention, Treatment, the possibilities are endless. That number doesn’t even include the amount of money we would be saving by not criminalizing non violent drug offenders. Federally marijuana is still illegal but states are starting to take the initiative by legalizing on a state level, and it’s clear why. The recreational and medical use of marijuana should be federally legalized and taxed. 48% of all federal inmates are a drug offender that’s 94,600 people. That’s only the federal numbers, if we were to take into account people in prison state by state for drug charges the number is 330,000. Of the federal inmates, only 7.4% are doing time for violent crimes (Alcyone par.1, 5). The mandatory minimum sentence for a first time nonviolent offender caught with 100kg of marijuana is five years, a second time offence is ten years, and the third offence means life in prison (Families against…). We’re talking about nonviolent people going to prison potentially for life, for the possession of marijuana. Aside from the moral aspects of that issue, let’s address how much it costs tax payers to keep......

...CONSTITUTION AND SYSTEM OF STATE POL/215 11,17,2011 EVINNA DAAN CONSTITUTION AND SYSTEM OF STATE To begin with, U.S Constitution was written by a number of people, more than 200 years ago.

Corruptio and Its Impact on Growth, Business and Government Effectiveness

...Corruption and its impact on Growth, Business and Government Effectiveness Ivo Dimovsky Managerial Economics – Empirical paper EMBA - American University of Bulgaria April 4th, 2012 ABSTRACT Corruption, like an infection, has co-existed with human society for a long time. Corruption has received significant attention among economists and international financial institutions during the last few decades, given its impact on economic growth both in developed and developing countries. There is an increasing volume of literature on the relationship between corruption and economic growth, and the general conclusion is that corruption slows down the long-term growth of an economy through a wide range of negative post-effects. It hampers economic growth, disproportionately burdens the poor and undermines the effectiveness of any investment and aid. Some theoretical studies suggest that corruption may counteract government failure and promote economic growth in the short run, however in recent years this studies aren`t anymore valid given the clear message from the negative effects on society and the economic system. In this paper we will analyze and present: First, we will describe and list a number of causes and consequences of corruption, derived from recent international studies from worldwide organizations trying to fight corruption. Second, we will introduce a regression model that can help explain the negative relationship between corruption (Corruption Perception......

The three levels of government are executive, legislative and judicial. The framers wanted them to be separated in so that they could perform on different levels while still and yet not allowing one branch is more power than the other. The framers knew that in order to provide the people with the type of government that they were trying to build; they would have to put into place a system in which each branch would be held responsible for their actions and/or decisions. This is how the check and balance system came into existence. Each branch functions on its own and has certain responsibilities. Each branch even tries to have more power than the other however; with the checks and balance system that the framers put into place prevents this from......
