During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt used several revolutionary tactics to heal the suffering American economy. These tactics, the providing of public service jobs, the movement for social security and the implementation of a "blanket code" for workers rights, had great success and greatly revolutionized the role of the federal government. The providing of public service jobs (the New Deal) was the tactic that served to heal the most daunting problem in American society, unemployment (document J). In 1935 the Roosevelt administration created the WPA to help employ Americans for publicly funded projects such as "city beautification." As seen in Document J this jobs did help to greatly lower the percentage of unemployed between 1935 and 1938.
By 1946, unemployment was reduced to 2.5% and this was in spite of huge post war problems such as shortages of raw materials and massive war debts. One way in which the government kept almost full employment was through nationalisation where the government took control of certain industries such as iron and steel production. Under this managed economy the government could use tax to keep an industry afloat even if it faced economic difficulties. This is a controversial topic as it was unclear how significant nationalisation was in creating jobs. Above all the Marshall plan was created as an initiative to provide massive loans for post war reconstruction and both the unemployment benefit and the massive rebuilding programme helped relieve idleness.
Roosevelt had a great impact on America by changing the relationship between the national government and the people changed drastically. The government took on a greater role in the everyday social and economic lives of the people. Theodore Roosevelt had a great effect on the great depression because he happened to be the right guy at a very bad time. Roosevelt had a plan called the New Deal to help America back on its feet. The New Deal programs of FDR created a liberal political alliance made up of labor unions, blacks and other ethnic and religious minorities, intellectuals, the poor, and some farmers.
The reform of finance and administration was the most important factor for Pitt’s domination of politics 1783-93 how far do you agree? On one had there is a strong suggestion that Pitts earlier political domination was made entirely by his skill as an administrator and financing his government. But the political situation at the time meant that there were many disadvantages facing him from very early on, hence the nickname the “mince pie” administration. There were many ways in which Pitt conquered over such problems like the Whigs and support within the Commons and the way he improved it, but what is the most important factor in his domination. Pitt from early on was a highly successful at implicating financial and administrative policies
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.
In 1909, Herbert Croly was determined to better the United States and did so by writing a book called, “The Promise of American Life”. Croly’s book caught the eye of many politicians and has often been called “…one of the few genuinely important political studies written by an American in the early twentieth century… it has generally been considered an expression of progressivism”(192). During this era the United States experienced constant change due to the Industrial Revolution. As a result, the wealth in the United States was granted to fewer and fewer individuals because big businesses were taking over. Additionally, the economy was not balanced and Herbert Croly devised a plan to regain this balance through federal regulations.
While Julius Caesar was dictator, he made a lot of notable changes to the empire. “One of the initial crises with which Caesar had to deal with was a lot ofdebt in Rome, especially after the Civil War when lenders demanded that their loans be repayed and the rest of the economy collapsed.” (Gelzer 94) Since Caesar was a creative thinker he improvised a way to get the economy up by making people repay their loans at the property’s “pre-war” value. This strategy would end up working and the economy went right back up to where it was supposed to be. Caesar put into place the construction of new public buildings which reduced the unemployment level and it boosted the economy. Caesar made many other improvements as dictator by making more jobs, boosting the economy, and helping out the poor and middle classes.
Numerous reasons induced this popular change including being that the Conservatives had adopted some unpopular policies in the 1930s in addition to their weak election campaign. However, the most significant reason was that the Labour Party caught the mood of the country as they encouraged ideas of a new world order and to increase the quality of life for the country after World War II. At this current time, proceeding with this idea was the most important need for Britain thus new found popularity for the Labour Party. During the 1930s, Britain suffered hugely from The Depression and the outcome was the high unemployment rates and overall great suffering that people all over the country experienced. Although some parts of the country, and some industries, fared better than others including some areas in the Home Counties while communities in the South West Wales experienced mass unemployment and poverty.
During the Gilded Age, America was benefitting from the success of the Second Industrial Revolution and the growth of capitalism. While robber barons grew wealthy, however, industrial workers fell prey to harsh working conditions, scarce pay, and long work hours. In an effort to address these grievances, workers began to unionize and collectively voice their concerns. Despite their efforts, the labor unions of the late 1800s were unsuccessful in meeting their goals because of their inability to gain the governments’ support in the Great Railroad Strike, Homestead Strike, and Pullman Strike. Working conditions were harsh for the American industrial worker in the 1800s.
for the better. At the start of his presidency he mainly focused on bigger businesses to stimulate the economy, but as time went on he found himself being driven to the center of need, the working class. The New Deal had many upsides but it had many failures too, with programs being unconstitutional and an absolute waste of American time. FDR’s presidency with always be noteworthy and held on a pedestal for all of the effort he put into changing the U.S.. The New Deal also changed the way the U.S. was took upon the role of president.
