      1. Socialism is a way in which of organising a society in which major industrys own and are controlled by the goverment rather then being orgainsed by individual people or compaines. Also can relate to a soceity or group living in which there is no private property. Capitalism is an econmomic system in which trade and industry are privatley owned and sometimes can be a profit organisations or a non profit organisatiin.
      2. Five most popular captilism countries-run countirse are:
      Japan
      India
      China
      United States
      Germany
      3.it is controlled by one person which means they have all the money and are rich. This effects the poor as they have to pay money to the rich.
      4. 1912- in 2 years the first world wR would start and There were strong distinctions between the upper and lower classes.
      1945- As a result of the wars, women had earned a more valued and Class distinctions had been greatly reduced as a result of two world wars.
      5. Class distinctions are used to describe someone’s worth or wealth in social structure.

        Sam – good research this. Are you clear about Capitalism and Socialism? Could you define it to a Year 7 if they asked you? Try and rephrase in basic English for a positive (you may need to look it up again to do so…)

  2. mrdettman Post author

    Hi Karleigh,

    Please make sure to answer each question to get the Positive. I want you to spend TIME on the Research part of this HL. Only then will you make real progress. I want this to be the best HL you’ve completed in school yet! I know it will be – show me what you’re capable of; I have high hopes!

    p.s. Have you got a book this year? I want to make sure your spellings make the most progress this year – for that you need to read. Want help with a book suggestion?

    The First World War would start in two years. Birling’s optimistic view that there would not be a war is completely wrong. The Second World War ended in Europe on 8 May 1945. People were recovering from nearly six years of warfare, danger and uncertainty.

    There were strong distinctions between the upper and lower classes. Class distinctions had been greatly reduced as a result of two world wars.
    Upper and lower classes
    Women were subservient to men. All a well off women could do was get married; a poor woman was seen as cheap labour. As a result of the wars, women had earned a more valued place in society.

    The ruling classes saw no need to change the status quo. There was a great desire for social change. Immediately after The Second World War, Clement Attlee’s Labour Party won a landslide victory over Winston Churchill and the Conservatives.

    Priestley deliberately set his play in 1912 because the date represented an era when all was very different from the time he was writing. In 1912, rigid class and gender boundaries seemed to ensure that nothing would change. Yet by 1945, most of those class and gender divisions had been breached. Priestley wanted to make the most of these changes. Through this play, he encourages people to seize the opportunity the end of the war had given them to build a better, more caring society.

    Socialism is a social and economic system by social ownership and/or social control of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy, as well as a political theory and movement that aims at the establishment of such a system.and the other one is an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state. and they are the two definitions of the economic and social words but i think it is important to have both of these in your life and i also think that social ownership will get you pritty far in life and in the futer and yes sir i do have a reading book thank you for asking

    Capitalism

    Socialism

    Equity Capitalism is unconcerned about equity. It is argued that inequality is essential to encourage innovation and economic development Socialism is concerned with redistributing resources from the rich to the poor. This is to ensure everyone has both equal opportunities and equal outcomes.
    Ownership Private businesses will be owned by private individuals The State will own and control the main means of production. In some models of socialism, ownership would not be by the government but worker cooperatives.
    Efficiency It is argued that the profit incentive encourages firms to be more efficient, cut costs and innovate new products that people want It is argued that state ownership often leads to inefficiency because workers and managers lack any incentive to cut costs
    Unemployment In capitalist economic systems, the state doesn’t directly provide jobs. Therefore in times of recession, unemployment in capitalist economic systems can rise to very high levels Employment is often directed by the state. therefore, the state can provide full employment even if workers are not doing anything particularly essential.
    Price Controls Prices are determined by market forces. Firms with monopoly power may be able to exploit their position and charge much higher prices. In a state managed economy prices are usually set by the government this can lead to shortages and surpluses

      Elleesse – your answers on this subject today show that you really looked into the topic thoroughly. Accurate research, but look next time to avoid copy and pasting – I appreciate you FOUND it yourself, but to really learn something, process it, and rephrase it in your own words. More will stick that way.
