Imagine that a rent control of $600 a month is imposed for some of the apartments in the city where you choose to live. In 1 or 2 sentences, describe how this would increase your monthly personal income. Now suppose the rent control has also caused a housing shortage, and you cannot find an apartment to live in for $600. In 1 or 2 sentences, explain how this would affect your living conditions.

A rent control apartment is less expensive so you would have to spend less on housing costs and that means you get to keep more of your money.

If rent control causes a shortage of housing, your living standard will decrease; you will have to live somewhere you may not like just because there is not enough apartments available to choose from

What did President Roosevelt do to aid Panama in becoming an independent country?

Quoting an African proverb, Roosevelt claimed that the right way to conduct foreign policy was to “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Roosevelt resorted to big-stick diplomacy most conspicuously in 1903, when he helped Panama to secede from Colombia and gave the United States a Canal Zone. Construction began at once on the Panama Canal, which Roosevelt visited in 1906, the first president to leave the country while in office. He considered the construction of the canal, a symbol of the triumph of American determination and technological know-how, his greatest accomplishment as president. As he later boasted in his autobiography, “I took the Isthmus, started the canal and then left Congress not to debate the canal, but to debate me.” Other examples of wielding the big stick came in 1906 when Roosevelt occupied and set up a military protectorate in Cuba and when he put pressure on Canada in a boundary dispute in Alaska.

Why did President Theodore Roosevelt use the Roosevelt Corollary in the Dominican Republic? Answers: Roosevelt did not want the Dominican Republic to attack Haiti. Roosevelt was afraid American businesses would lose money if there was a revolution in the Dominican Republic. Roosevelt was afraid European countries would take action against the Dominican Republic if it did not pay its debts. Roosevelt needed to have military bases in the Dominican Republic to protect the Panama Canal.

Answer:

President Theodore Roosevelt used the Roosevelt Corollary in the Dominican Republic because he was afraid European countries would take action against the Dominican Republic if it did not pay its debts.

Explanation:

The Roosevelt Corollary was a substantial amendment to the Monroe Doctrine by President Theodore Roosevelt. In its altered state, the Monroe Doctrine would now consider Latin America and the Caribbean as territory to expand the commercial interests of the United States in the region, in addition to its original purpose of keeping European hegemony outside the hemisphere.

Roosevelt applied his variant to the Monroe Doctrine for the first time taking the customs of the Dominican Republic in 1905 to pay the foreign creditors of that nation. This event provoked a great indignation in the European leaders and in particular of the kaiser Wilhelm II.

Government help please! 1. The 10th amendment to the Constitution reads as follows: " The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." According to the 10th amendment which powers to the state have? select all that apply (I have to choose two) A. The powers not delegated to the United States B. The powers set out in the constitution C. The powers not prohibited by the constitution to the states D. The powers that the people want 2. Why did John C. Calhoun believe that nullification of federal law should be a power held by state? A. Because this Constitution does not expressly give Congress the right to control states B. Because he wanted the Civil War and was willing to push until it happened C. Because he was against states rights in all forms D. Because the Constitution clearly stated that nullification was justified 3. How did the earliest state constitutions differ from the majority of others created later? A. They did not include popular support B. They were handwritten by slaves C. They were not based upon their colonial charters D. They did not create a court system

1.The correct answers here are the options A and C.

Under the United States Constitution, the powers that the states possess are those that are not given to federal government and those that are not prohibited by the Constitution itself. This is clearly seen here in the 10th Amendment. The states are free to set forth any laws that are constitutional so this does not mean any powers people want. 

2.
The correct answer here is the option A.

John C. Calhoun believed as did some other prominent politicians that nullification of federal laws was justified as the Constitution does not expressly give Congress the right to control states. But nullification is actually not legal and not true because of the Supremacy Clause that states that the Constitution and the federal laws created in accordance with it are the supreme law of the land. Also,  Article III of the Constitution states that it is the federal judiciary that has the final say in the constitutionality of a law.

3.The correct answer here is the option A.

When the citizens of the United States think about  the Constitution they mainly think about the Constitution of the United States. But before the colonies came together to create the Union they already created their own individual constitutions and entered the Union as free states. But these have been changed after the establishment of the Union in order to more reflect the Constitution of the United States.
