The Alliance For Progress: Policy Continuation Or Actual Reform?, Mario Mion Apr 1967

The Alliance For Progress: Policy Continuation Or Actual Reform?, Mario Mion

Honors Theses

The Alliance for Progress appears to falter within its own objectives. As such this is not unique to this aid program; other programs have encountered difficulties in their operation. However, the extent of the Alliance's failure to meet its stated goals raises the question of the efficacy of the program itself and, what is more significant, of the intent of the Alliance as a program of aid and as a tool for reform. In fact, the operational or mechanical difficulties per se are not surprising considering the obstacles Involved. Traditionally divergent economic and political patterns and social attitudes, here ...

Typical of the problems is the erosion of the local tax base, a loss of population, an increase in crime and delinquency, and persistent demands by fringe area residents for extensions of municipal services.

An Examination Of The Concepts And Critics Of The Theories Of Mass Society, Jeffrey Stephen Margolis Jan 1966

An Examination Of The Concepts And Critics Of The Theories Of Mass Society, Jeffrey Stephen Margolis

Master's Theses

Introduction

The quotations above are representative of the three prominent problems entertained by the theories of mass society; that is, freedom in the polity, freedom in the community, and inner directiveness, or freedom with one's own self. This series of problems involves the totality of existence.

Traditional philosophic speculation, the realm of the totality, demands an examination of man's concept of what he is, and what he is not, of what he sees, and that which he does not see. For the prescription "Know thyself" is not only a panegyric for introspective soul seeking; rather, it is an ...

An Exploratory Investigation Of The Indifferent Pattern Of Accommodation To Work-Related Organizations, John E. Blissick

Indifference is a phenomenon which occurs among almost all major groups of workers to some degree, but it has been observed most often and in its most intense forms among blue collar workers. In various forms it has been called apathy, noninvolvement, and un-affectedness. It has ...

Planning And Democracy In France, Larry G. Massanari Apr 1965

Planning And Democracy In France, Larry G. Massanari

Honors Theses

In the beginning of 1962, France launched its Fourth Plan to cover the period 1962-1965, and entered its sixteenth year of economic planning, Parodoxically, France which has so frequently seemed determined to demonstrate to the world an absolute incapacity for self-government has at the same time carried out a complicated experiment in economic planning, the results of which have frequently been brilliant; this is not to suggest that through planning the French have found answers to all of the many difficulties which still face them. It was immediately after World War II that France embarked upon their experiment in planning ...
