Isenberg 1 Russell Isenberg Dr. Kowalski English 125 22 November 2005 Need? What is a need? In today’s society, one might argue that needs have been blown out of proportion. While this is true, what these people do not think about is that society has changed, along with the definition of a need. The dictionary definition of a need is a “necessity” or “a condition or situation in which something is required…” (Need). While this is the dictionary term, people do not realize that the definition changes over time, especially so in our generation. The definition of a need has been severely changed for our current generation, ages 10-20. One major element that is not included in the argument is that the definition of a need is partially based upon a person’s income. If a person makes more money, they will be more likely to spend money on things they now consider needs, instead of wants. Given the happiness index involved in economics, when a person’s real wage is larger than expected, they are likely to spend more money. These new objects that they spend money on are going to be newly turned needs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
