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.

The Keynesian economic policies were to allow the government to increase their control over the American citizens. The New Deal was the social-welfare liberalism, which allowed the federal government to grow at an astronomical rate. The New Deal had a powerful impact on the unemployed, African Americans, women, Native Americans, and other racial minorities. Though the New Deal expanded to the environment, which in Tennessee resolved the severe flooding by building dams and creating electricity for the residents. As the economy was needing revamping, the New Deal redefined writers and artists.
The US has become a major world power in the late 19th century because we have created so many things to become industrialized. Many people came into the cities because there were many jobs available so the city growth increasingly populated. Working conditions of these jobs where horrible. The populists seen this and tell the world about the small farmers problems. Carnegie seen that the rich becoming more rich will help the economy prosper and become better.

Labor unions became a way for the common man to speak out for improved working conditions, higher wages, health insurance, and other means of protecting themselves. The United States federal government led by Theodore Roosevelt intervened in order to control the strength of new labor unions.

The Progressive Era, from the 1890’s to 1920’s, marked the movement of reform, aiming to protect social welfare, restore economic opportunities, and promote moral improvement in America. As the 20th century approached, many reformers of the middle-class addressed problems that contributed to the commotion in the earlier years. The Progressive Era inspired many reform activities, such as instructing poor immigrants and workers the values of hard work and temperance. The public became more aware of the problems across the country as journalists and writers exposed the labor conditions faced by factory workers. One particular reform felt that promoting moral improvement was more important in improving the lives of poor people than reform in the workplace.
Katey Goodshaw Due: March 13, 2012 Period 6, U.S. History PWA, Benefits for All The New Deal was a series of policies started by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as an attempt to stabilize America’s economy during the Great Depression. One of FDR’s attempts to get America out of the Great Depression was the formation of alphabet agencies. These agencies were started to give work to citizens who were unemployed and to better the general community.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was confident that the New Deal program would fix these issues but many Americans including Herbert Hoover and Huey Long questioned the role of government and offered their own conjecture about the New Deal.

No matter whom you were, the Great Depression affected everyone. Through President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs, many Americans received some type of recovery, relief, or reform. Programs such as the Work Progress Administration created jobs and aided those who could not get one on their own. The WPA focused on providing jobs that produced public works of lasting value. Grown men that were once a part of a program called the Civilian Corp. Conservation were interviewed.
Nevertheless, progressive reformers and the federal government were for the most part effective in bringing reform to the political, economic, and social problems throughout the country in the early 1900’s. Political problems during the Progressive Era were big issues due to the previous role of the political machine, a political organization contained of a boss and many people underneath who used bribery to obtain votes for their respective parties. The abuse of political machines pushed reformers toward the idea of a greater democracy. The most important reform in politics throughout the early 1900’s was that of the direct primary. The idea that voters could choose presidential candidates was new because normally only a select number of people would be able to do so.
When the government takes "the lead in economic planning and in improving the lot of ordinary citizens" as it did during the era of the New Deal, a twice-implemented collection of economic programs during the Franklin D. Roosevelt presidential terms, necessary improvements are made and obstacles to social equilibrium are exemplified (Give Me Liberty! 794). Turning obstacles into opportunities for improvement and executing them were the methods set forth by the components of the New Deal.
