Whistler (1834-1903) is known as a primary leader of the Aesthetic Movement in England. The movement, influencing all forms of the arts, was a call for reform in design, and occurred at the turn of the century in reaction to the booming Age of Industrialization and the restrictive Victorian Age. Whistler energized the movement, attracting attention by commanding the press with words of controversy, thus stirring a revival of aesthetics that influenced how art and its values are perceived and appreciated.
AN ASSESSMENT OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF A CENTRAL AMERICAN ECONOMIC DEBACLE ON THE U.S.
Edgar Aguirre CLU (Business, Dr. Damooei)
The International Monetary Fund will assist emerging economies of Latin America in containing the damageof the Asian contagion, and will affect macro-economicpolicy in the United States. Latin America is a huge market for U.S. goods and services, and a debacle in the region, initiated by the seeming collapse of a titanic Brazilian economy, could have adverse effects on the U.S. export sector. Coupled with the high value of the dollar, a trade deficit could lead to contraction of economic growth. This paper analyzes the current situation in the region, assesses what the current predictions for the future are, and formulates a cohesive hypothesis about how U.S. macro-economic and monetary policy might be affected and/or react.
