See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end

Think what that money could bring
I'd buy everything
Clean out Vivienne Westwood
In my Galliano gown
No, wouldn't just have one hood
A Hollywood mansion if I could
Please book me first-class to my fancy house in London town
All the riches baby, won't mean anything
All the riches baby, won't bring what your love can bring
All the riches baby, won't mean anything

...Memorandum April 12, 2012 ------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT: Smart Couples Finish Rich Analysis Mr. I would like to follow up with your inquiry made during last week’s meeting regarding David Bach’s Smart Couples Finish Rich. I have since completed reading the book and will present and discuss several of the author’s major insights which I believe will be most beneficial to you. Bach presents the content of his book in a 9 step process which results in a financially successful future for couples. The book is part personal finance and part relationship counselor. It discusses how money can often be the root of many arguments for couples and how to avoid this problem by working towards a financially secure future together. I will discuss the following the three most important points in Bach’s book and why they can be so valuable to implement into your life: * Be open with your partner with regards to finances and work towards goals together * Small frivolous spending is what keeps many from becoming rich * Start early in building your retirement fund An early step in Bach’s process is “Plan Together… Win Together” long term planning with your spouse and developing a system which you can assess your goals. This entails keeping track of financials and establishing a common ground between the couple. This is very important so you can establish a benchmark system so...

Habits of a Rich Girl

...Assignment 1.2, “Facing Poverty with a Rich Girl’s Habits” by Kim: Revised Brionica Leary ENG 115 Professor Rachel Hays November 18, 2012 Suki Kim is the author of “Facing Poverty with a rich girl’s habits”, by Kim. In the essay she talks about how she learned to adapt to a new way of living after losing everything that her family once owned. She explains how she began to accept who she had become, and how her outlook on life changed after this transition had taken place. Kim realized that no matter where she was geographically in this world, that she was still the same person within her soul. Not only was she still the same person from within, but that her cultures and beliefs did not have to change because of where she resided in this world. Kim also came to peace with knowing that there were more people of her culture, who shared the same beliefs living in America as well. Kim’s main purpose in her writing was to explain to her audience that she had experienced a great deal of challenges adapting to different beliefs and cultures living in America, versus living in Korea. She stressed to her audience that it was challenging accepting a new way of living compared to what she had been taught, and was already accustomed to believing. Kim’s genre in this writing could be classified several ways. Overall, her genre was narrative. It was very explanatory. I would also consider it to be a memo. Her audience consisted of people of her race (Koreans), who......

...“Facing Poverty with a Rich Girl’s Habits” Ariel Terrell Professor Kimberly,Sinott ENG 115 January 25, 2013 “Facing Poverty with a Rich Girl’s Habits” By: Suki Kim Reading this essay Suki Kim examined about how you should never get adequate with your style of living because it can change spontaneously. She had to get a mindset that she was no longer going to live in a lifestyle like she did in Korea. She had it utterly made living in Korea. She was treated rich in Korea, but suddenly this flickered. She went from being rich to poor and now she was facing paucity. She had to learn and accept that this is the change and lifestyle she must grow into. One thing I realize is even though she moved to an American State, she will would still abide the same race and she couldn’t change what was within her anima. She also had to comprehend that just because she to move to New York, did not mean she had to change the way she have faith in or her civilization. As she went to high school, she quoted, “Yet it did not take me long to realize that the other students and I had little in common.”( Roen, D., Glau, G., & Maid, B. (2011).). Suki Kim was facing the same thing kids from her school were facing. I trust Suki Kim main purpose in writing this essay is she wanted to explain that she cultivated tough situations conforming to what it was like living in America than living in Korea. She had to realize that how she was living in Korea is not going to be same living in......

...Taiwan and the Competition for Diplomatic Recognition TIMOTHY S. RICH Diplomatic recognition is generally seen as fundamental to the modern state system. The traditional views of recognition however focus almost exclusively on political or ideological rationales, ignoring other foundations on which other countries base establishing diplomatic recognition. Focusing on the Republic of China (Taiwan) suggests a more complicated view where economic self-interest on one side and national pride on the other may undermine traditional conceptions of recognition. Using the ROC-PRC diplomatic battle as a case study, this paper hopes to shed light on two questions: why, despite the PRC's rise as a global power, a country would continue to formally recognize the ROC and secondly what does the ROC receive in exchange for such high-cost endeavors to maintain recognition. In this case mutual ideological rationales have greatly diminished while I contend that economic factors have predominantly maintained this diplomatic battle. In addition, previous research often focuses on major world powers granting or withholding formal recognition to smaller states. In this situation, poor countries with typically little political influence are the major players, suggesting different rationales behind recognition. Methodologically, this paper blends qualitative and quantitative analysis to uncover factors affecting recogni- T IMOTHY S. RICH is a doctoral student in political science at the......
