Although we may not have conclusive scientific evidence of a cause - effect relationship, ample anecdotal evidence establishes a significant correlation.
The classic example of pure competition occurs with a commodity, like wheat or corn, that has so many producers that no one of them can control its selling price.
Moreover, both common sense and our experiences with children inform us that people tend to mimic the language and behavior they are exposed to.
Numerous psychological studies show that different colors influence behavior, attitudes, and emotions in distinctly different ways.
Just as not every Japanese is hardworking and deferential to superiors (长者、上司), not every Chinese is devoted to family, not every American is ambitious or patriotic - or even unsophisticated.
While individuals have primary responsibility for learning new skills and finding work, both industry and government have some obligation to provide them with the means of doing so.
In sum, it is in our best interest as a society for the government to censor broadcast media for obscene and offensive language and behavior.
Requiring businesses to provide complete product information to customers promotes various consumer interests, but at the same time imposes burdens on businesses, government, and taxpayer.
Whereas other societies look to the past for guidance, we cast our nets forward even these days, when not all progress seems positive (nuclear weapons, air pollution, unemployment, etc.), the belief remains that for every problem there is a rational solution. Even these days, when all progress seems positive, the belief remains that for every improvement there lies a potential threat/ pitfall.
In a society that changes as fast as ours, experience simply does not have the value that it does in traditional societies.
When half the population goes to college, one cannot expect the colleges to maintain the same standards as in countries where only the elite attend .
It has taken a long time to convince the public that( free enterprise does not mean that a company should be free ) high economical improvement does not justify the behaviors to pollute the air, foul the rivers, and destroy the forests.
No one could seriously think that anyone who grows up poor, lives in a bad neighborhood, and attends an inferior school has an opportunity equal to that of someone more favored.
When the demand for something is greater than its supply, producers and suppliers will sense the possibility of making a profit - the excess of revenues over expenses is the profit.
In conclusion, I agree that appeals to emotion are more powerful tools than arguments and reasoning for promoting products.
The argument simply equates success with movie ticket sales, which is unwarranted.
The lesson here is that advertising, in itself, probably will not achieve as great importance as art.
Women differ fundamentally from men in childbearing ability; related to this ability is the maternal instinct - a desire to nurture - that is far stronger for women than for men, generally speaking.
In America, there are no such expressions such as in china where “the fat pig gets slaughtered,” or in Japan, where “the nail that sticks out gets hammered down.”
It is the belief (necessity of …./ possibility of…..)in a brighter future that gives us optimism.
In consumer - driven industries, innovation, product differentiation, and creativity are crucial to lasting success.
The evidence suggests that, on balance, people today tend to concern themselves with only practical matters that are related to their life.
This freedom from the group has enabled the American to become “Economic Man”-one directed almost purely by profit motive, mobile and unencumbered(不受阻碍的)by family or community obligations. Equipped with the money, one can acquire the taste, style, and ideas that mark each class and launch a quick ascent of the social ladder.
Americans may not have achieved equality, but at least they aspire to it, which is more than many other nations can claim.
世界大同 盲目崇拜 现代社会
In many countries, when jobs become available for young people in distant cities, when television begins to dominate home life, when ready - made foods appear in the markets, the culture appears more “American” - although the resemblance could be entirely superficial.
While I doubt that buildings determine our character or basic personality traits, I argue that they can greatly influence our attitudes, moods, and even life styles. presumptuous
破题 AB之争。。。 是。。。。之争
The extent to which the broadcast media should be censored for offensive language and behavior involves a conflict between our right as individuals to freely express ourselves and the duty of government to protect its citizenry from potential harm.
Those who advocate unbridled individual expression might point out that the right of free speech is intrinsic to a democracy and necessary to its survival.
A monopoly occurs when one company alone offers a particular food or service and therefore controls the market and price for it.
Current wisdom says that (当前流行的看法认为)if you want a successful product, you need first to perform detailed market analysis, ensuring that there are plenty of people who need the new product and that your entry into the market will be able to gain a significant share of that market.

The mere fact that ticket sales in recent years for screenplay-based movies have exceeded those for book-based movies is insufficient evidence to conclude that writing screenplays now provides greater financial opportunity for writers.
In any event, the advertisement provides no justification for the mutually exclusive choice that it imposes on the writer.
The argument fails to rule out the possibility that a writer engage in both types of writing as well as other types.
The author assumes that physical capabilities are the only attributes necessary to operate a motor vehicle.
This assumption presents a false dilemma, since the two media are not necessarily mutually exclusive alternatives. Common sense tells us that a photographer can succeed by working in both media.
The argument ignores the factors - such as initiative, creativity, technical skills, and business judgment - that may be more important than the choice of medium in determining success in photography.

This assumption overlooks other criteria for determining a bridge’s importance - such as the number of commuters using the bridge, the role of the bridge in local emergencies and disasters, and the impact that bridge closure would have on the economies of nearby cities.
