This also strengthened their friendship with oreos Britain because they were seen to be helping them in their hour of need - the war. This friendship was so strong that America fought with the Triple Entente at the end of the war. One of the reasons for the economic boom was the introduction of hire-purchase whereby you put a deposit on an item that you wanted and paid installments on that item, with interest, so that you paid back more than the price for the item but did not have to make one payment in one go. Hire-purchase was easy to get and people got into debt without any real planning for the future. In the 1920’s it just seemed to be the case that if you wanted something you got it.
How far do you agree that the personal popularity of Hitler was the main reason for the increased electoral support for the Nazi party in the years 1928-1932? In 1928-1932, the Nazi party had a huge increase in support. By 1932 it had the largest support for the people than any other party. Hitler himself had an impact on the popularity of the party, he had great public speaking skills and could be very persuasive, and this boosted the popularity. However this was not the only factor that increased the electoral support for the Nazi party.
The division was so strong, it eventually led to the Civil War. But sectionalism still isn't the top competing force. In my opinion, the force that had the greatest impact on the nation was expansion. Expansion is the process of extending a states territory by claiming new land, which the United States did a lot of. Expansion affected the nation in many ways other than size.
The curled metal pads lasted longer t hen asbestos pads and were easier to change. Furthermore, the growing concern over the health risks associated asbestos gave CMI's pads an added advantage. Government regulations prohibiting the use of asbestos or making them costly to handle, could push pile drivers toward CMI's cushion pads. Th e prospects prompted Robert Manicucci, the vice president of Engineered Products Division at CMI, to declare: Curled metal cushion pads seem to have more potential than any other product we've ever in troduced. A successful market introduction could as much as double the sales of this company, as we ll as compensate for the decline of some existing lines.
After the American War of Independence, the state finance was dire the national debt had risen to £242 million in 1784. Pitt had to think about how to cut expenditures, whilst raising taxes to meet the deficit; this was however unpopular due to losing the war. Also pitt was keen to create a new more efficient system of collecting tax. This was to be the key to his success as Prime Minister and his financial policies revealed his genius. His taxation policies were generally successful, as the amount of tax reaching the treasury had improved dramatically, even doubled.
If the success of an Independence movement is defined by achievement of the original goals, then the Mexican Independence Movement was more successful than the Brazilian Independence Movement because Mexico achieved its political, and social goals while Brazil did not achieve its goals to the extent Mexico did, and while Brazil did become economically stable afterwards, Mexico remained economically unstable. There were many political goals for both the Mexican and Brazilian Independence movements. Napoleon’s invasion of the mother countries, Spain and Portugal caused much disruption in the countries so forcing him out was not only a goal but a necessity. Other goals included bringing Ferdinand VII back into power and the final goal was to become independent. Along with the goal of removing Napoleon from Portugal, Brazil’s only set goal politically was to become independent.
During 1946 and 1966, the CDU and CSU had an unbroken rule. In 1949 they only had 31% of the vote but by 1957 they had 50.2% and enjoyed a majority rule. Many people argue this rise in popularity is due to their success of their domestic policies and the rise in living standards people enjoyed. However how much this rise in living standards is actually due to Adenaurs governments’ policies and how much is down to chance is widely debated among historians. One of the first things that needed to be tackled was the wide destruction in Germany, the war had left many German cities in ruins and many people were homeless, this had only been made worse by mainly the French stripping their areas of the zone for reparations.
Henry VII had more crown lands than any previous king and some lands had been confiscated under the acts of attainder meaning more money for the crown. The kings annual income from his royal estates rose from £12,000 to £42,000 which was a significant improvement showing that his techniques were working in this area, also another example of ordinary revenue that was used effectively was custom duties. Henry cracked down on corrupt officials and constantly updated the book of rates of custom duties. Historians estimate custom duties rose from £33,000 to £40,000. This was also an improvement becasue money was still being raised adding more value to the crown.
Due to industrialisation, factories were built which lead to rapid growth of population in the towns and cities for example from 98 million in 1885 to 125 million in 1905. However though this meant that the economy was improving, the growth in population led to poor living and working conditions which increased social unrest. As trade unions had been made illegal there was no way to protest which lead to support for more radical
The European economies were exhausted by the cost of waging a long war. In comparison, the USA grew rich during the war years. Its late arrival to the war, and the fact that its cities and industries were not bombed or destroyed during the conflict, meant that at the end of the war it was able to capitalise on the perilous state of European industry and dominate their markets. The First World War was very beneficial to America as during this time America’s food
