Other presidents were also able to establish antitrust reforms. President Woodrow Wilson established the Federal Trade Commission Act, aimed to prevent monopoly, and the Clayton Antitrust Bill. As Document E illustrates, the Clayton Antitrust Bill claims it unlawful to "lessen competition” or “tend to create a monopoly in any line of commerce". Although Presidents Roosevelt and Wilson established reforms to stop monopoly, they still had many holes in their trust-busting campaign which severely limited the full effects of
WWI was not necessarily a distraction from either imperialism or progressivism, but it did affect them substantially. The war began in Europe in 1914 when Germany and Austria-Hungary went to war with Britain, France, and Russia. Bulgaria sided with Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire and were known as the Central Powers because they formed a large block in the center of Europe. Britain, France, Russia, and the United States were known as the Allied powers which over time included twenty-seven nations.
The rise of Detroit was caused by the economic boom the auto industry brought to the city during the early 1900’s. With the industry hiring and paying Detroit citizens, the middle class began to grow and people were then able to buy more luxuries. Some citizens started to buy heroin and other drugs for pleasure since they were able to then and this lead to the economy to be centered around illegal drugs during 1960-1970’s. This was the beginning of the fall of Detroit. With the breakdown of social control from the Vietnam War and the Social Justice movement during that time, the exchange of illegal drugs was not able to be controlled because the cops were preoccupied with containing riots regarding to the war and the movement.
One of the other causes for the fall of Rome was the slave labour. The number of slaves increased considerably in the first 2 centuries of the Empire. The Roman's dependence on slave labour led not only to the decline in morals, values and beliefs but also to the temporary stop of any new technology. Romans could rely on the slave labour for all their needs but this reliance inhibited technological transform and development. The poor treatment of slaves led to several Servile (Slave) Wars.
He came into office at a time where the government was viewed as corrupted due to the previous presidents, such as Ford and Nixon. Carter came into office wanting to fix this point of view of the government and bring America back to the top. He failed miserably. He wanted to make politics more transparent and he wanted to control everything he could.
The New Deal greatly helped the USA get out if the depression and also changed the way that the government in America was run forever. For these reasons the New Deal was a significant factor in American history. However, it was not without limitations, as it did not fully repair
Between 9.8 million and 10.4 million casualties were civilians murdered for political or racial reasons by the Nazi regime. Deaths were unequally distributed across countries whether they were military death due to combat, civilian deaths or the holocausts. There was creation of the united Nation and new Economic organization. This was despite the failure of the League of Nation to stop the outbreak of the World War II, believed to have been too weak to stop the aggressive maneuvering of Germany, Japan and Italy. However a stronger organization was created with leader hoping to avoid a recurrence of the Great Depression.
These illegal sales avoided paying taxes altogether to the Chinese government, and hence weakened China economically as it was losing an important source of revenue. Moreover, due to the lack of productivity in the country with one-third of its male population being opium addicts, China’s economy was on fast decline. The Chinese were spending their money on
Prior to the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, terrorism was not a widely discussed topic in sociology- with most existing studies not being conducted by sociologists. It was mostly seen as a foreign problem that had no direct implications to many western nations and hence, faired fairly low on the political agenda. However, following the incident, a lot more importance was placed on the subject and this led to many radical changes. In the following essay, I would be examining the different ways that sociologists have researched and theorized terrorism, counterterrorism, as well as the impact that it had on society, predominantly in America and United Kingdom.
By 1932, Americans had reversed the approval and disapproval making the disapproval rating had gone higher. Americans disapproved the prohibition because the criminality and murder went up, business’ were going down and it was impossible to enforce no alcohol. The rate of criminals went up leading to more murders when the Prohibition was enforced. Many criminals such as gangsters, racketeers, bootleggers, and dope sellers got “helped” out by prohibition. Especially in the Great Depression, were alcohol was even more wanted.
Because of this increase in money production, the countries were brought into periods of inflation. This hurt the economy of the United States because the United States could not perform affairs with the allied countries because of their debts. During the war, the United States spent a lot of money because of the necessity of new weapons and machinery in fighting. Since the major industries that were needed during the war were now insufficient, many Americans were now out of jobs. These debts and unemployment rates brought about the stock market crash of 1929.
Obama has not been given the same curioutisy that was extended to GW Bush in reference to not critizing the sitting president in time of war. One of the times I wished there had been more controvery is in the ealry 2000’s. During this time, the democrats for the most part were very much supportive of Bush’s and his attack first agenda. During this time if there had been more opposition to Bush we might not have lost so many rights to the Patriot Act, or lost so many American lives to war and so many millions of people in the Middle East.
1. Why did the attack on Fort Sumter force the Upper South to choose sides? The attack on fort Sumter led those in the Upper south to side with their southern states.
