FDR’s motive for creating the New Deal was the toll the largest stock market crash in history was having on the nation and its people. While progressivism aimed to fix the government and the New Deal aimed to fight the stock market crash, the Great Society simply aimed to eliminate poverty in the country. WE can see that the motives of each era are all difference and, while there are some comparable characteristics about the goals of the eras, they still also differ between each era. During the progressive movement, a huge effort was made to expose the corruption of the nation; this was an effort made by muckrakers, journalists who combined careful research and sensationalism to educate the public about the corruption and dishonesty about some aspects of the country. Progressive goals included changing the voting and election process, reforming how trusts and railroad regulations were handled, and standing up for the
‘The Wall Street Crash was the main reason Hitler got into power’. Do you agree? When the Wall Street stock market crashed in 1929 America’s economy was plunged into a depression. This had a big impact on Germany’s economy, as they relied on the loans from America, and was a big reason in the Nazis coming to power. However there were many other factors that contributed towards the Nazis rising to power, for example Propaganda, the weakness of the opposition and the role of Hitler.
By 1916 Americas trade has risen up to $6 billion. This sudden change of position made New York the new world’s financial capital. This gave power to America because as the war started the government now began to take a roll in directing economic development, with the development of the War Industries Board it allocated raw materials to various industries. It also began to advise companies on they could be more efficient and join bitter rivals to improve productivity. This meant that the government now began to take authority of the economy and thus give more power to the federal government.
From the time period of 1870 to 1900 the growth of big businesses in the United States had a major impact on the economy, politics, and the response of Americans of Americans to these changes. These businesses grew significantly in number, size, and influence and had an ever-lasting effect on Americans and their surrounding community. Industry and its new technologies have had an amazing impact on reducing the costs of the goods necessary to life, such as food prices, fuel and lighting prices, and the cost of living (Document A). The standard of living of most Americans should have increased, as more wages would be left over to spend on luxuries. Aware of the extra-money available to working families, the different pieces of a Big Business have acted in such a way to suck that extra-money from the poor families.
Therefore this large influence was causing the SPD’s to grow considerably in the Reichstag, consuming the majority of seats in the parliament. Therefore the Reichstag was in left-wing position. This posed a threat to the right-wing position that the government was currently in. Therefore this implies political parties were becoming more influential in the parliament as the Kaiser could not overlook such a dominant party in the Reichstag. However it could be argued that Wilhelm II’s aims to crush socialism in response to Caprivi’s tolerance for Socialism in his years as chancellor disagree with this view as it suggests he is aiming for more of an autocratic state where he holds state control.
336 336 The Hundred Years War had serious ramifications for the Economic state of England as a whole. Edward I was known for bringing ships full of French bullion across the channel but “unlike his grandfather, Edward III did not ship silver across the channel by the barrelful.”Edward’s failure may be due to the ability of the French to guard their wealth rather than his inability. Economic upheaval would be expected in France, “areas became deputed, populations fled or were massacred, the economy was damaged and disrupted,” in regions under duress from the English. However Kaeuper states the economic damage was not only France’s to bear as “on either side of the channel, the results of the warfare beginning in the 1290’s were fatal to the finance” of the English realm. However Bridbury states the conflict was more like “petty gang-warfare flamboyantly decked out and caparisoned.” Bridbury takes a slightly naïve stance on the economic perspective of war, and underplays the effect wars can have on economies.
Due to their defeat in the civil war between the times period 1861 – 1865, their reputation was starting to become slightly crumpled. Like the Republicans, they had divisions, but in contrast, they were not as well hidden and were a lot deeper, on show to the whole country. Another difference between the Democrats and Republicans was that the Democrats were very pro-slavery, making them fully dependant on the resentment of the white southerners of the US. A main reason for the Republicans dominance was the strengths they had as a party. One of these included the massive growth of conservatism through the US, and increasing business influences.
Iron, Oil, and Electricity also grew along with the railroad industry. In my opinion the Bessemer process that made it possible for mass production of Iron. The new refining techniques brought about more oil and last but not least electricity played a part in the economic expansion. I n the end competition and monopoly played a role in the falling prices and increased completion in 1873 that cut into the profits of the railroads but it did change the course of his by showing us how this type of industry would help the economy. The second dynamic that changed the course of American History was the Working Woman.
At the same time, economic difficulties were rising in the colonies. The government had raised taxes and the intense decline in the tobacco price, which was the main source of income for the colonies, caused the poor to suffer dramatically from the lack of profit earned. In addition to the turmoil, there was a corrupt and unjust government led by then current governor William Berkeley. Governor Berkeley was highly influenced by the colonist tobacco planters and did not provide equality and adequate support to the society (Give me Liberty). Bacon’s Rebellion was the most influential period in the American government because it helped transform the labor force by replacing the indentured servants with slaves, leading to the development of race which transformed the social equality class system and contributed to the economic and political solidarity.
However personal vendettas and corruption led to the destruction of these values during the 1820’s and 1830’s. From injustice tariffs to horrific Indian removal policies and even Jackson’s own personal rivalries, the interests of Jackson and his comrades were always brought to the forefront. The common man was left to fend for himself because of Jackson’s focus on his own beliefs and a misguided personal agenda. The nation was thrust into turmoil because Jackson and the Jacksonian democrats disregarded what would have been best for the nation. The pledge to protect political democracy was polluted throughout Jackson’s presidency.
