However, arguably the greatest advancement was the development of the long-range escort fighters due to its long-term effect it had on the war as the Allies were able to use it multiple times unlike ‘Window’. It was able to provide sufficient protection for the bombers as it diverted German fighters and acted as a convoy too allow Allied fighter planes to gradually chip away at Luftwaffe pilots, planes and resources. This meant that the Allies had not only been more efficient in bombing Germany but the death rate was also much lower and it ultimately led to the destruction of the Luftwaffe. In conclusion, the technological advancement’s significance was less at the start as the Allies were ill-prepared but towards the end of the war, the significance it had was much greater due to the rapid advancement despite it not achieving its initial
This helped families across the nation get a little more money in their pocket if they were running into problems and it increased the U.S. national economy because of it and gave them the upper hand over the Soviets. The Cold War, in my opinion, benefitted the United States the most economically. Though the cost for producing nukes and nuclear power plants was expensive, the cash flow the U.S. had from all of the factories, and it brought the U.S. together to help with the war effort and to help their allies in Europe who were neighbors with the
Many people lost their jobs, so they turned to the party, which gave them more followers. This directly related to more votes from “1928 to 1932, votes increased from 800,000 to 14,000,000” (“Nazi Party”). Because of this, the Nazi party held the largest percentage of the total vote. In the early 1930’s Hitler made several smart political moves that eventually set him up for success.
Considering economic and social factors such as, the economy had boomed and cultural life was begging to flourish. Since more jobs were occurring, factories started to be more productive which would therefore generate more GDP for Germany. This was all from the sake of Gustav Stresemann who was the Chancellor for Germany. He was considered as being one of the savours for Germany. As stated by a statement from Stresemanns’s obituary ‘’He has worked hard to rebuild his shattered country and for peace.’’
The Interstate Highway Act of 1956(National and Defense Highways Act) was one of the largest public efforts that had constructed 41,000 miles of the system over a 10 year period. It was a work that had greatly revolutionized the way the world progresses while also enriching the quality of life for almost every American citizen. This event was important enough to remain in the textbook because socially it made traveling more efficient while also allowing citizens to travel to many more places inexpensively,economically because goods were able to be transported more productively which ultimately allowed many companies to lower transportation/production costs and enhance productivity/profits,higher gas prices due to increased production of cars,and
“Americans think the U.S. economy benefits when big businesses or small businesses make a profit, although, by 84% to 64%, more consider small-business profits helpful”(Saad). Although those are some supporting facts for large businesses in America, they are too powerful and too rich. In the past and even in present time large companies generally hurt their consumers and workers. The main focus for businesses is to make money off their customers.
In the 1920’s, America reached its highest standard of living. American citizens were making more money, working less, spending more time on leisure activities, and buying expensive items, such as cars. A middle class America was developing, suburbs were constructed, and the new workweek was shortened to five days a week. Despite this boom of prosperity, the changes in America from 1920 to 1945 were primarily detrimental. The United States began the 20th century on excess, but this excess eventually overflowed and left America high and dry.
In fact, it took a great effort and struggle for both the federal and local government to enforce it. Even after a noticeable 30% drop in alcoholic consumption and a decline in arrests for drunkenness, bootlegging and speakeasies kept increasing and were extremely successful, especially towards the end of the Prohibition, for those who wanted to drink found many creative ways to do so. The purpose of the Prohibition was to promote the nation’s health and hygiene and reduce poverty, the rate of crime, and the amount of deaths. The average workers’ productivity was expected to increase improving the economy and the overall quality of life. However, the opposite occurred.
Competitiveness Airports operate in a highly competitive environment and therefore encourage developments which make the airport sector more responsive to the needs of their passenger and airline customers. Competition in the airline sector has been a driver of innovation and cost reduction and has delivered major benefits for consumers in terms of increased choice and value. Effective competition between airports is clearly something to be encouraged for the same reasons. “Within the aviation industry, MRO, ground handling, catering, CRS and freight forwarding created economic profits, but these were much more than offset by economic losses by airlines and airports. Airlines were responsible for the large USD17 billion of economic losses globally.
America began to prosper in the 1920’s because of industrial production being up, wages were rising, and the unemployment rates were low. After World War I America was the world’s leading economic power, because of all the technological changes happening in the industrial companies. Technological changes were happening in many industries, for example Henry Ford began to make his cars on an assembly line, which enabled him to sale more cars and cheaper products. America also had a lot of natural resources, oil being one of them, which is essential in cars. Oil was also very abundant so it sold for cheap prices.
Sadly as always, for any war there is death. In this war there was about 406,000 deaths alone from the United States. Even Though the average American made more money, the people that did not go and fight had to deal with harsh wartime rationing. All in all, this war help move America forward but not without difficult times and lose of
he United States benefited from the situation after ww1. American industry had escaped destruction, the nation had a head start on converting its economy from one focused on war to one focused on consumer production. Throughout the 1920s American businesses prospered because of a frenzy of spending on the new consumers goods. Recovering from the war economically proved to be a more difficult task han winning the war militarily.
