The society was divided in 2 groups: old and new money. People had got rich quick and they were trying to show how rich they are every possible time. “As year followed year of prosperity, the new diffusion of wealth brought marked results… There was an epidemic of outlines of knowledge and books of etiquette for those who had got rich quick and wanted to get cultured quick and become socially at ease” (Frederick Lewis Allen, Only Yesterday, 1931). There was a leap from 75 to 283 in the number of Americans who paid taxes on incomes of more than a million dollars a year. Money got the same meaning as “culture”.
The manufacturing business is a great example of this, “manufacturing in the U.S. grew by 250,000 jobs after NAFTA”(Marketplace). NAFTA has had a beneficial effect on the automotive business, “NAFTA helped the U.S. auto industry survive”(Hanson), without the help of this trade agreement cars would be produced at a much higher opportunity cost. Although now, the U.S. is able to trade with Mexico and Canada who are both making car parts at a lower price while still producing efficiently, “The U.S. auto industry designed a very efficient production network that spanned the U.S., Mexico and Canada.”(Hanson). The trade agreement made products from Mexico and Canada cheaper to import.,“NAFTA increased farm exports because it eliminated high Mexican tariffs”(The Balance). Finally, The North American Free Trade Agreement has caused the U.S. economy to “boost” as much as “.5% each year” (The Balance).
Between 1870 and 1900, an estimated 25 million immigrants had made their way to the United States. This era, titled the Gilded Age, played an extremely important role in the shaping of American society. The United States saw great economic growth and social changes; however, as the name suggested, the Gilded Ages hid a profound number of problems. During this period of urbanization, the publicizing of wealth and prosperity hid the high rates of poverty, crime, and corruption. European immigrants who had come to the United States in search of jobs and new opportunities had fallen into poverty as well as poor working and living conditions.
Billion Dollar Congress (1889)- The Billion Dollar Congress was put on the third level of good because it provided impactful social reforms, but it became interested in the increasing revenues and protecting the Republican industrialist, which led them to favor the upper class on certain circumstances.The fifty-first congress received its nickname from being the first to pass a billion dollar budget, made up of the United States Senate and House of Representatives. The congress provided benefits for the Civil War veterans and increased the amount of the governments purchases of silver, expanding the authority of the federal government. McKinley Tariff (1890)- The McKinley Tariff is in the second level of bad because it gave them no option but to purchase manufacturers goods from overpriced American industrialist, and sell their products into competitive and unprotected world markets. The farmers discontent with the tariff caused them to vote for more democrats in the election of 1890, leading to having members who represented the farmers. The Billion Dollar Congress wanted to maintain the increased revenue, along with protect Republic industrialist from oversea competitors, hence they passed the McKinley Tariff.
Growth has dropped due to the increasing levels of saturation in the larger car markets of the world. Worldwide the trend is towards ensuring that one 's products are superior in terms of quality. The passenger car segment has emerged as a major driving force for upstream industries like steel, iron, aluminum, rubber, plastics, glass, and electronics and downstream industries like advertising and marketing, transport and insurance. The car industry generates large amount of employment opportunities in the economy. For example in the US, every sixth worker is involved in the making of an automobile.
Porfirio Diaz was the dictator of Mexico, in the years of 1884 to 1911, who sought to modernize Mexico through a series of economic and social policies he had emplaced onto the country–the country consisted of the rural population and the prosperous upper class. Due to political stability, and lack of wealth–under the reign of Porfirio–there was commotion, especially amongst the middle and lower classes. Until Diaz took over and decided it was best to improve the economic stability of the country since the mexican economy was far underdeveloped. In Diaz’ journey for modernization, foreign investments originated from the implemented policies which would ultimately build Mexico back up and into a thriving country. Some Historians have assumed
It also has lowered prices for the consumers. During that time, the United States increased its exports of goods to the other two from $142 billion to $525 billion. Thats a third of its total exports. Canada ($282 billion) and Mexico ($243 billion) were the top two U.S. export markets in 2017. Imports from Canada and Mexico increased from $151 billion in 1993 to $614 billion.
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.
