In my Civics Engagement course, I’m developing an understanding of how societies address the public good. I chose to do a case study on the American culture and how it effects the way people buy goods. This allows me to observe what causes the United States to invest in business that obtain resources and sell products. Also, it allows me to have an interest in seeing if food availability should be a requirement or an option. Perhaps the United States takes their food availability for granted. Other country’s have different policy that measures whether or not food can be obtainable or demanded. I then can do more studying on different government systems, such as socialism in communism or a democracy.

By starting this study, I began a census that goes deeper into the individual perspective and to test their knowledge about the subject of food availability. This was developed through the process of creating a public survey to gain more information on common public lifestyles in the United States. My group asked various subjects to fill out a survey. I made the questions in the survey focus on concerns about food availability. This knowledge helps understand unavailable options other countries have for obtaining food. Also, this study will help individuals to conduct a lifestyle that is need-based rather than comfort. Thus influencing private businesses to control the availability of food to the public is based on supply and demand.
