Although the 1920’s would inevitably lead to an economic crash the would devastate the nation, its decade was both booming and rife with advancements. This era thrust an entirely new outlook amongst the citizens of the country, and brought to then a new and more fast-paced style of life. The 1920’s in itself birthed the nation with a brand new culture. Two factors, which most notably contributed to this new national culture, were advertising and entertainment. The 1920’s saw a shift in culture no other era had experienced thus far due to the growth and dominance of advertising.
Hitler would tell the country what they wanted to hear, one example was providing jobs as unemployment increased massively. He also became more popular after he led the campaign against the Young Plan; this reduced the reparations that they had to pay in 1929. All the actions that Hitler made boosted the electoral support for the Nazi party. To an even larger extent than the popularity of Hitler himself came the great depression in 1929 as a result of the Wall Street crash in the USA. The Nazi party took advantage of this in Germany, as the Weimar government weakened the Nazi party rose.
Locomotives were an instant success everybody liked and wanted to use them, they could take people to live in towns and cities they otherwise would have never been to. Some of the positives of the introduction of the railway were things as simple as getting people to where they wanted to go faster than usual or things as unusual as people earning their money from racing trains and everything in between. They were a massive breakthrough in British technology, this is what made them that bit more exiting for the people in the 1800’s. Even though there wasn’t as much money around then as there is now there was a sudden increase in the amount of people buying houses in other towns as soon as locomotives came out, this meant more money for estate agents and landlords. There was also a lot more money in the sports industry because more people would be able to get to sport games because they could get a train.
The Republican Party had control over the country at this time, causing big business to thrive and expand. Though the political leaders helped create economic success in the U.S., it was a short-lived period. By the end of the 1920’s the country financially hit its rock bottom. This was due to a poor distribution of wealth, international economic problems, excessive financial speculations, and faulty corporate structures. President Herbert Hoover ended up with most of the blame for this, especially since he contributed limited efforts in transforming the nation back to prosperity.
The Industrial revolution had a massive impact upon all the classes in Britain and in turn affected the growth of association football. One factor was that there was now more time for sport to be performed/watched, this came because both Saturday and Wednesday were designated as half days, and this increase in free time allowed games such as football to be played more often and by a larger group of people. This boom in big industry meant an increase in the wages of the working class, this in turn meant that they could afford to pay for transport to games as well as the entrance fee to the ground. The industrial revolution also brought with it a vast increase in the british transportation system, most namely the rail network, this allowed teams to travel around the country and play against many different teams, this also led to an increase in the frequency of matches as because of this transport system leagues were able to be set up. Public schools also had a significant, arguably the most significant, influence on the development of association football.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century the great flow of immigrants arriving in America were attracted by promise of a bright and wealthy future. This was the American Dream: that everyone, no matter where they came from, had a chance of success if they worked hard. Until the 1920s the USA had an ‘open door’ policy which meant that almost anyone could enter the USA. In the 1920s new laws were made to limit the number of immigrants getting into the USA, this was a result of the growing amount of Americans who were against immigration. The USA had tried to limit immigrants before 1900.
Sports in the 1920s In the 1920s ,in America, prosperity was growing in many different places. The economy was booming, people were getting jobs and the unemployment rate was very low.

A famous movie star can receive several millions of dollars for a single film as well as a football player has a one hundred million contract with a certain club. Like every problem, the question about the salary of actors and athletes has its supporters and opponents, but let us dwell on the positive sides of the high payment. It does not worth mentioning that actors and athletes work hard to achieve success in their profession; they have to keep to the standards in everything: shape, weight, fashion, etc. They spend more than 12 hours working on the role in the movie or training in the gym. The most reasonable explanation of the high payment is that these people present not only themselves but the whole country on the international arena in sports and art, so they should be supported and praised as they create the image of their country.
The Roaring Twenties were considered one of the happiest times of America. Everyone seemed to have an abundance of money and no matter what social standing, people were happy.
