How did the Communist government intervene in family life during the Cultural Revolution

The Communist Government intervened in family life during the Cultural Revolution by not giving its people the right to decide where they want to be placed in society. Families are assigned roles so that Mao Che Dong during that time period would be able to remain in full control of his country. Therefore, people were segregated to industries and were led to believe that in order for their country to be great, they also need to serve their country. Such practice became a limiting factor for families to become coherent.

Crises like the Great Depression were predicted by Adam Smith. c. The Great Depression appeared to disprove the classical theory that demand and supply could return to a healthy equilibrium through market forces alone. d. The issues of the Great Depression had no connection to classical economics.you guys took to long I answered correctly, it is C

The correct answer is C.

The Great Depression generated refusal to classic economic theories, which supported no goverment intervention in the economy and claimed that the free interactions of economic agents in the markets led to the most efficient market outcomes.

This refusal grew specially after President Roosevelt implemented the New Deal in the US. This was a package of measures that aimed to restore the economic conditions by using an intense schedule of goverment interventions in the economy, that sucessfully increased public spending to create job positions and to boost GDP levels.

Select the three reasons that some of the colonists gave for NOT supporting the Revolution. PLEASE HELP A. England could not be defeated. B. England had agreed to some of the colonists demands for self-government. C. The colonies needed the protection of British troops. D. The cost of independence would be too high in human lives. E. The boycotts had been effective enough that no war was necessary. F. American colonists refused to fight English troops, only Hessians.

Answer:

The correct answer choices, according to research, to the question: Select the three reasons that some of the colonists gave for NOT supporting the Revolution, are:

A: England could not be defeated. To the colonists of the time, between 1774 and 1776, when the War for independence was underway, and the Continental Congress and Army had been formed, there were still colonists who did not wish to support the revolution because they still believed England to be much stronger, and powerful, than they could ever be.

C: The colonies needed the protection of British troops. Because there was no organized colonist military forces, and the defense of these territories was still overly dependent on British troops, the colonists did not wish to undermine that protection by initiating a war against their motherland.

D: The cost of independence would be too high in human lives. During the First, and even Second, Congress, colonists were still worried that an armed conflict with Britain, without support from another power, would lead to the death of a lot of people, without reaching the final goal of independence. This is why it took a lot of effort on the part of the Founding Fathers, and other relevant people, to convince colonists outside of Boston, to stand up against the British.

Japan purchases oil from the Middle East. Since the price of oil rose in 1973, Japan has spent more money on oil than any other imported product. OPEC nations cannot use all of the products Japan needs to sell or trade for the oil it uses, so Japan must sell its products elsewhere. Japan and the United States are very important trading partners. However, there is an imbalance in their trade. Japan is using its trade surpluses with the United States to pay for its trade deficits with what organization?

The answer is OPEC as the more specialized a nation becomes the more likely it is to run a trade deficit with the nations that supply the inputs and to run trade surpluses with countries that buy the final products. This pattern holds particularly well for Japan. Japan buys coal and other raw materials from Australia and uses these resources to make high technology items. It can not sell enough of its finished products to Australians to pay for the raw materials it buys from them. So, it runs a trade deficit with Australia, which it pays for by running trade surpluses with other nations, for example, France.Japan and the United States are very important trading partners. However, there is an imbalance in their trade. This is part of the pattern mentioned above. Japan is using its trade surpluses with the United States to pay for its trade deficits with the OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Nations) nations.
