Personal Comments Despite the fact Carlyle has innovative ideas and theories, I do believe that he would impact our economy negatively. He was ignorant to the advancements of science and neglected the want and need for a democratic, equal system among society. Scarce resources would be ineffectively distributed among competing ends (government and commoners), and economic growth with relation to the scientific field would cease to exist. Therefore our world current economy would start to breakdown.

Interests - Literature -Politics - Social Issues - Current Affairs - The Church and The Ministry (prior to 1821) - Different perspectives

Favourite Songs Should Listen To: - Peaceful songs that exude happiness, joy and tranquility (i.e Bob Marley -- One love) Represents Carlyle's Views:- Songs that portray a strong and assertive attitude. (i.e Kanye West -- Stronger)
