Imperialism influenced government policies due to increasing pride in the strength of the country. The growing economy allowed the middle class to grow and succeed. This growing sense of pride for the country created justifications for the expansion of the country, such examples are Big Stick, Dollar, and Moral Diplomacy.

An example of government during the right time was Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal. Roosevelt was elected after President Hoover. When he was elected he focused on improving the wellbeing of the citizens by implemented policies that stimulated economic growth by creating jobs through public works spending. Roosevelt had made the United States a welfare state, and created a social safety net for the elderly and people unable to work. President Roosevelt also intervened in the stock market by regulating stock trading, so that the Stock Market Crash would never happen again.
The period between 1865 to 1900, also known as the Gilded Age, was an era of rapid industrialization, immigration, and capitalization in America. After the civil war, previously used factories remained and flourished as manufacturing started to replace farming; which was possible due to vast immigration from Southern and Eastern part of Europe. With an available cheap labor source, businesses rose to great heights, and competition thrived. While companies thrived, working laborers and citizens suffered. Because industrial statesman expanded wealth and created opportunities, but also exploited workers, disrupted competition, and manipulated factors of production, it is justified to characterize the industrial leaders of the Gilded age as both “robber barons” and “industrial statement”.
The industrial revolution was worth the cause in many ways but in others it wasn 't. The industrial revolution helped many people get jobs and and made the government and city make more money which was good because they needed the money to build houses and more factory to give all the immigrants and people who were coming into the u.s a place to live and work. The bad part of it this was this caused many dangerous problems with the everyday people.

This new society was divided into three main groups: an upper class of aristocrats, industrialists and merchants and, finally, the poor and working class. Such an unfair class division was hardly criticised by the writes of the age, as it may be seen in Thackeray's work Vanity Fair. Since the power was in industrialists' hands, laws mainly favoured them and the conditions of the workers, as it has already been stated, deteriorated. Craftsmen disappeared as a result of industry competition and the increase of production lead to a decrease of salaries. Moreover, the industrial revolution created an unprecedented demand for female and child labour and thus, the use of woman and children as cheap labour became commonplace, working both for long

The AFP wants to inform the American people on how much the government spends and regulates the economy and business. They want to mobilize these people to create and vote against government regulations. They support the free market and business and want more tax breaks for these large businesses and corporations thus staughly oppose unions.
Although there might be some evidence that Capitalism helped improve the lives of the British people from 1760-1880, it mostly caused them hardship and pain. During the industrial revolution, the idea of capitalism began to expand across Britain and several job opportunities became available for the working class. They saw this an opportunity for a better life, higher wages, a better system than what they had working at the farms. What they did not realize was that this system alongside the industrial revolution brought child labor in factories, bad working conditions, and creativity-killing jobs which only made life worse for the British people. During the industrial revolution, factories were being built which meant that the job opportunities
The Second Industrial Revolution, did indeed produce rapid industrialization resulting in cheaper goods, better transportation and a stronger economy.

Consumer demand and credit were increasing significantly, however the poor productivity of the industrial sector as a result of war could not keep up. Therefore the price levels had to increase to balance out the supply and the demand. Taxes in general also increased during the period: indirect and social security taxes doubled in the decade. (Cullip) However as the fifties allowed opportunity for the people to participate in a capitalistic society, firms and individuals faced incentives for growth through innovation and hard work. This helped increase real GDP and promoted higher living standards.
