The government hires workers to ride along highways and roadways to pick up the trash. They also have littering fines that go up to at least $2000.

1. Take the issue you have chosen and explain how it affects your community.
Well in my community there are tons of kids who bring trash and decide to throw it on the ground. One piece of trash affects one home being sold because if there is one piece there are bound to be more pieces somewhere else.
2. What do members of your family and community say about the issue?
Lately as I go to the front of my neighborhood there hasn't been tons of trash. There is a lady who gathers a group of people together and they go out ang pick up the trash so our neighborhood could look the least bit presentable.
1. How does this issue affect households and local residents?
When it rains or when the wind blows the trash may fly into their yard affecting their chance to win yard of the month. They might have small pets who like exploring new things, they might accidentally try eating something they aren't supposed to.
2. How does this issue affect area businesses?
Business try and make their buildings look nice so they can attract more business to expand their company. With trash everywhere that is impossible. The more trash the less the expand.
3. How does this issue affect our government at the local, state, and national levels?
Well the government puts no littering signs up and making it to where people have to pay in states and all over.
4. How does this issue affect the world?
Well the world is going under global warming. Littering is apart of pollution and its affecting water and the air we breath.
5. How does the issue affect resources, goods and services, and finances?
With littering comes pollution. The pollution brings damage to crops, water, air, etc. With all f the damage comes an inflation rate that rises and rises.
1.Give three possible solutions to the environmental issue you are investigating.
Punish the litterbugs more, make it more announced (commercials, newspapers, etc.), and adding more trash cans.
2.Why would some people oppose the solutions you have chosen?
Some people don't really care about how they are affecting the environment by throwing trash. I personally feel as if they are looking for a quicker way to throw trash out instead of waiting for a nearby trash can or just wait until they stop.
1.What positive or negative externalities does this issue present at each sector of the economy? Refer to your circular-flow diagram.
With littering in my community it makes people not wan to come in our neighborhood and buy any houses, the people who come from out of the United States want to see the beautiful are instead of a whole bunch of garbage everywhere, and also with businesses no one is going to want to join their business if they have trash everywhere.
2.What incentives do individuals, businesses, and government have to act on each possible solution?
Businesses, individuals, and the government can take the incentives to have less taxes and less environmental pollution.
3.What are the externalities, both positive and negative that could result from each possible solution?
Positive- More clients for businesses, more visitors to cities/towns, less workers to clean.
Negative- Less businesses, less house sells, bad environment.
Examine the possible solutions against your criteria.

Make a statement about how each possible solution either meets or does not meet each of your criteria
Each solution would meet the criteria because it would benefit businesses, cities, and home sales. Making it possible for the owners to expand their businesses, also making it possible for more home sales meaning more money and more people living there. Making a better chance for others to see the better good and want to move in the neighborhood.
Choose the best option and explain reasons for choice.

Select your best solution to turn into action. Explain why you make this choice over the other possible solutions. Refer back to the criteria and externalities.

My best solution would be to be more strict when it comes to the people who get punished for littering. Instead of just having them pay a fine for littering they could also get community service where they would have to pick up the trash. If they had that and had to pay also I think personally there wouldn't be much trash on the ground.
