Hitler's political policies were unfair, but the German people saw a greater political stability in Hitler which gave Hitler more support and was able to gain power. Hitler was such a great leader, by 1940 the German army was rebuilt and Adolf Hitler was bent on conquest.Hitler contributed in many ways that’s what made him a great leader. Also with many supporters he was able to change many things during his time. All the changes and aspects of hitter made him one of the greatest leaders for
After the Cold War tapered slightly in the 1950s, the American economy struggled to adapt, but remained prosperous as politicians labored to once again convert the wartime economy to a peacetime economy. Because a wartime economy often promoted economic growth, providing excess employment to produce weaponry and other war necessities, the American nation faced a potential economic disaster as the war concluded. As a result, President Truman proposed a process meant to make this transition as successful as possible: Truman’s program to ensure a smooth transition to a peacetime economy included proposals for unemployment insurance to cover more workers, a higher minimum wage, the construction of massive low-cost public housing projects, regional development projects modeled on the Tennessee Valley
He would balance the budget many times, either by cutting taxes or by raising defense spending. This would lead to the economic prosperity of the fifties. He also would sponsor the Federal Aid Highway Act and eventually sign it. He would push congress hard to accept it. The act would lead to the birth of the highway system in America.
When America joined World War I, due to America’s economic strength, it helped to solve the financial problems of the Allies and hence win the war of attrition by defeating the financially exhausted Germany. However, had America not joined the war, Britain might have succumbed to financial problems. It was known at that time that the British was struggling to keep up with military expenditures, even with booming trade with America. If America had not joined the war, the Allies might have lost the war without the backing of America’s vast economic strength. Before 1917, the neutrality of America was kept stable under the helm of Woodrow Wilson, who was determined to keep America out of the war.
America was incredibly lucky during this time to have two leaders that expanded the government’s power. Theodore Roosevelt was an admired public figure, having come to office after the assignation of President McKinley. He allied himself with reformers who urged regulation of trusts not destruction and helped reform them. He pushed for passage of the Meat Inspection Act, which helped eliminate many of the disease transmitted in impure meat. In 1907 he proposed more forceful reforms such as an eight hour work day, more compensation for victims of industrial accidents, inheritance and income taxes and regulation of the stock market.
He also used ethos by appealing to their emotion, after a well written speech about his goals he used this quote to get the American people working and helping America become a flourishing country. In the very next sentence he says, “My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man,” because Kenned knows his audience he said this to establish respect for other countries and appeal to their ethos and make them want to comply to what America says so the whole world can be happy and prosperous. In conclusion President John F. Kennedy used many different rhetorical strategies to get his point across in a speech that was shorter than most Presidents Inaugural Address’s. This shows that Kennedy knew what he was doing during the
With the failure of capitalism, the communist parties (the Social Democratic Party and the Communist Party) began to grow. They greatly appealed the lower class, who wanted a socialist state where there were no classes and everyone was idealistically equal. People also saw that the effect of the Great Depression was basically nonexistent in the Soviet Union which was governed under a Communist Party. These two parties combined would have a larger supporters than the Nazis, due to the large majority of the lower working class, however they were rivals to each other. The Nazi party, which was also a rapidly growing party, appealed to many of the public as people began to have a better image of Hitler and his party.
The state of the country's economy during a presidency is one of the most important characteristics of a president's success, and both Eisenhower and Johnson thought about their country's wealth. Eisenhower's tenure was marked by a booming economy (Ambrose 347), and he had to find a way not only to preserve it but to benefit from it. During his presidency, the federal spending as a share of GDP decreased by two percent (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”), but still domestic spending increased despite all his attempts not to let that happen by blocking expensive programs (Ambrose 479). Though income and real purchasing power of Americans increased, many people still lived below the poverty line (“Dwight D. Eisenhower: Domestic Affairs”). Mostly they were
His motives had positive intentions, believing in capitalism and individualism. Hoover supported capitalism and individualism during the roaring twenties. Unfortunately, the Great Depression happened when Hoover was president; accordingly, Hoover received negative criticism for not dealing with it in a helpful way. However, Hoover should have realized that the Great Depression had started in North America. If he had accepted that the Great Depression was caused in the United States, he probably would have been able to help ease the Depression significantly more than he did; consequently, he would have received a much more positive opinion from the public.
The reason was because during World War 1 the United States followed the policy of Imperialism. They decided to extend their military, economic and political control over Cuba, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Samoa, Alaska, the Philippines, the Panama Canal Zone, and the Midway and Wake islands. Even though imperialism is believed to be a bad thing today, it was once seen as a good thing by a majority of the United State citizens. The majority were businessmen that wanted international trade among countries. It was also favored because it brought more raw materials into the United States.
President wilson was a early 20th century president who sought to reform american society for the better. His reform focus during his presidency ranged from economical reforms to labor laws. He used his position of power with reform in mind in turn making him successful in bringing about positive changes to american society. Wilson did things such as create the Federal Reserve Bank in hopes to help stabilize the economy. Wilson was also strong supporter of labor laws which made him popular in the eyes of the working class.
Another example of Jacksonian Democracy giving a helpful hand to the common folk was with the tariff. The tariff gave the small industries in America to have a chance to rise. When the industries raised so did the workforce, which helped support the common white male. Countries in the south disliked this tariff because it forced them to buy domestic materials at a higher price, but this
The Federal Reserve thought it would come to the rescue by increasing the value of the dollar. How did it do this? By raising interest rates, this slowed down the economy. Without funds to grow, businesses started firing workers, leading to a vicious downward economic spiral that became With the causes and effects of Black Tuesday, businessmen changed their attitudes on economy; the role in economy changed too. Businessmen and political leaders were more eager to change history and improvise so that this wouldn’t be a repeat in history.
Republican President Ronald Reagan is known for ending the Cold War and also for increasing the USA’s national debt. This extended essay aims to investigate why the debt after the cold war was so high. Ronald Reagan was nearly killed in an assassination attempt, which resulted in many politicians to feel sympathetic towards Reagan. This would have resulted in an advantageous position for Reagan to pass his bills.
His bold move helped America double in size, plus some. Although Jefferson agreed with the critics about his decision being unconstitutional, he knew what was best for his country. In the long run, the people that were against his decision learned to accept the fact after all of the benefits started to be shown. The growth of land made trade easier, which helped grow the country’s economy at that time.
