The second reason for why the superpower rivalry between the Soviet Union and the United States can explain the absence of major wars is that ideological competition between them do not lead to direct confrontation between the two countries. Another way that the two superpowers compete after the second world war is by spreading their ideology to third world countries so as to increase their influence over the world. Before world war two, the Soviet Union and the United States are once allies to fight against government of Nazi Germany. However, after the collapse of Germany, the two superpowers have different opinions on how the Europe should be reconstructed. The United States is in favour of democracy while the Soviet Union is in support of communism.
Firstly, the economy in the Weimar republic was quite stable. In 1924, Germany immediately received loans under the Dawes plan, which was a plan prepared by an american banker called Charles Dawes to adjust the reparation payment to the capacity at which Germany could pay. On one hand, the economy was really successful because of the Dawes plan and because there were many investments in industry and commerce. Germany had become one of the biggest exporters of manufactured goods as well as being able to surpass pre war levels in 1928. On the other hand, the economy of the republic wasn't so stable because it depended on american loans which could be withdrawn at any time.
Progressives believed that educated professionals should be in charge of making the decisions as the representatives of the public interest. As a historian Warren Susman described this Progressive method in his book Culture as History, the Progressive movement believed that professionals "could give the people not what they believed they wanted but what they knew, through their training, they really wanted." The diplomacy demonstrated this method through the US government's enforcement onto the Central and South American nations. As the US was the global leader in socio-economic status, Knox considered the nation an expert in that field. The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region.
I know many Americans are still angry and frustrated with the economy. Though employment is growing, banks are beginning to lend and even housing prices are picking up a bit, too many people don't feel it”. The words “I” and “we” indicates that America, including his audience and himself, are all facing the same issue. This helps to achieve his purpose as people would believe that they are in the same boat and therefore Clinton’s choice, nominating Barack Obama, would definitely benefit everyone. Regardless of any logical fallacies that may be presented, Bill Clinton’s ingenious use rhetorical strategies made his speech that much more effective and persuasive.
Politicians for two hundred years have invoked the Founding Fathers to defend their beliefs. It is understandable that as a society we place figures like Washington, Franklin and Jefferson on a pedestal, they were key figures in the United States achieving its independence. Implying that the Founding Fathers ideas were in concurrence with each other though is something that is erroneously done far too often. These men, while intellectual giants in their own right, found little common ground on public policy. Heated debates, slander, and disagreement are as defining of the construction of the country as anything.
Stalin and Hitler: Similarities and Differences Stalin and Hitler emerged at the time when political and economic instability had crippled the USSR and Germany. They began making improvements which encouraged their people to believe that prosperous times await them. This notion would unfortunately turn out as an illusion. Both figures would eventually rule by decree. Despite treading on different paths of ruling, both figures still find some commonalities.
The President has to be a man that can balance the institution of our government with strong morals, although some have had their morals in the wrong places.

Having dreamt of owning his own large business for his entire life, John’s relentless work ethic allowed him to achieve his American Dream while living in a community which boasted a 7.4% unemployment rate at the time. The unemployment rate of John’s hometown, Queens, has now decreased to barely above national average at 4.3%, but is now plagued by another problem; income inequality. This problem is occurring all across our nation, hurting the American Dream. The top 20% wealthiest of the U.S.’ population owns almost 86% of the countries wealth, leaving only 14% for the bottom 80%. This means that there is much less money left for the lower classes to increase their standing and achieve
Decades later, a number of public figures have also incorporated their own take on the Amerian ideal into their speeches. Former president John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address has a powerful message about the unity of Americans, while current president Donald Trump talks about how strong American citizens are. In “TheAmerican Scholar” Emerson concludes his speech with his take on the American ideal. He emphasizes that the perfect scholar should be courageous, independent, and a maverick of sorts. Trump and Kennedy are known for being different from other presidents in their own way, but they both possess the qualities mentioned previously.
The attempts to regulate business were few. Instead, taxes were cut, encouraging Americans to spend more. In 1922 the Fordney-McCumber Tariffs on imports, were imposed by the government.
