Wealth and the Distribution of Wealth across Nations I. One of the primary obligations of any nation is the creation of wealth When nations fail, it is often because they have not been successful in generating the wealth needed to sustain the country. II. A second obligation is to design policies that distribute that wealth across the population. This includes both tax and social welfare policies. III. Nations make a lot of different decisions about distribution and welfare Examples: A. Communism B. Socialism C. Unregulated capitalism with little or no social welfare system or concern about the distribution of income and wealth. D. Moderately regulated capitalism with a modest welfare system, and little interest in the distribution of income and wealth.

    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.
