Cotton became the fabric of choice instead of wool, linen or silk. In this case the manufacturers of the other three may have had negative effects in their industries because they had competition but cotton was cheaper and easier to color. This gave people more affordable choices and industries a better way to make more money. Also the machines that came to be because of this part of the revolution lead to path for methods to be used in other areas like steam machines being used in boats. As a result cities grew faster and the economy was stronger.
Such confusion meant that the die hard Republicans and Moderate Republicans both felt confused on his stance and therefore would have lead to a shrinking in his voter base. Typically Romney would garner a greater portion of the white vote however in 2012 in Ohio 329,000 fewer whites voted, which shows Romney’s failure to get out support and general connection to his voter base in such a key swing
Borrowers who did not meet their standards were forced to pay higher interest rates to subprime lenders, but the companies essentially persuaded investors to treat a vast number American families as if they were interchangeable. They took messy bunches of loans, with risks as variable as snowflakes, and created securities of uniform quality, easy to buy and sell. The result was one of the most popular investment products ever created. And in its absence, experts on housing finance say that fewer borrowers would qualify for the best interest
This shows how much he pushes to make America a better place. The government also becomes more involved with the economics of the American people as well. The government became more involved with the new deal and that led to their involvement in “Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones,” (Grapes 21).This quote shows the hoped/ actual results of the government involvement. Although it still affects the U.S. today Roosevelt help the U.S. by getting the government more involved with the people and in turn improved the Great
In this transformation, Nixon earned the hostility of leaders of civil rights organizations. The transformation itself was so successful that “it made for a solid base for the Republican Party in the South and moved a majority of suburban white voters and many poor and working-class whites in the North into the Republican camp in national elections, while retaining the party’s corporate elite core” (171). Nixon’s social policy agenda was motivated by two goals: first, Nixon distributed social policy to working-class and poor whites and contained liberal state building by expanding social policies selectively; and second, Nixon was fixed on accelerating policies that would excessively divide voters of the democratic party. His first goal was displayed through his Family Assistance Plan, and his second goal was displayed through his Philadelphia
By electing Roosevelt, the Americans lives were in for a positive change. Throughout the years, many spectators believe the underlying cause of the Great Depression was simply because of the careless imbalances within the U.S. economy and the outrageous amount of bank failures, while others
The rise of political parties as the fundamental organizing unit of the Second Party System represented a sharp break from the values that had shaped Republican and Federalist political competition. Leaders in the earlier system remained deeply suspicious that parties could corrupt and destroy the young republic. At the heart of the new legitimacy of parties, and their forthright celebration of democracy, was the dramatic expansion of voting rights for white men. Immediately after the Revolution most states retained some property requirements that prevented poor people from voting. Following republican logic, citizens were believed to need an economic stake in society in order to be trusted to vote wisely.
4 The New Deal brought feelings of optimism, with Fire side chats which gave people a sense of optimism for their nation by gaining confidence and this worked because the people started to withdraw more from banks. He also restored the nations trust by bringing immediate relief as known as “pump priming” 5 FDR wanted people to enlist for war that forces which recognize the value of discipline and can teach each other which showed patriotism. The New deal did not bring a revolution but it did continue an 6 evolutionary change it not only created an avenue for industrial workers to achieve better representation but it also created an avenue for industrial workers to achieve better representation by also
They produced many new jobs with the need for new roads since the American landscape was drastically expanding. Advertisements not only made businesses prosper but gave people actual helpful information, such as the idea of keeping a much better personal hygiene being better for your health. Alternating electrical current increased energy efficiency tenfold compared to direct current since people could actually turn off their electricity. However, the Installment Plan created a country-wide idea that you could now buy what you really can’t afford and that made a lot of debt which eventually made the stock market crash leading to the Great Depression. Although there was a blotch on the great economic image of the twenties, the bigger smudge was on the cultural rifts that
Business elites exploited their work force and made profits to the maximum degree. Time had changed and no one could make adjustments and adapted as quickly and smoothly as business. The number of immigrants allowed to enter United States was restricted by quotas. Workers became much more united after the publication of the novels and the fire that burned at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. Theodore Roosevelt stepped up and warned businesses to “act properly.” Those business elites that cooperated with the government elites were considered good trusts.
