Those who grew up during the 1950s experienced one of the most influential decades in American history. After World War II, the 50’s was a calm and peaceful era and the society had no worries because the economy was rising which made it easier for people to be involved in the workforce. This was the decade that started rock and roll music, the introduction of the television, and transistor radios. The greatest long-term impact was the rise of rock and roll music. Rock and roll music allowed people to escape the seriousness of reality and get loose.
Are you doing your part to keep the american dream alive?. In the article Keeping The Dream Alive author Jon meacham has a very clear thought on what's going on in America which in his ideas are that the upper class wealthy have more control and certain breaks. Meacham does a great job of conveying the dream throughout the history of america going in chronological order. Many great Americans believed that we have the power to make the world or at least America a better place not perfect but better.”Roosevelt quoted that observation in his final Inaugural Address in the winter of 1945, and in the ensuing decades, American power and prosperity reached epic heights. The Peabody-Roosevelt gospel seemed to get it right: the world was not perfect, nor was it perfectible,”(Meacham 1).This does not define the individual American dream but how the government thinks we should be as a nation we can not prosper until we fail.
What I don’t agree with is cities giving massive tax breaks to teams that build new multi-billion dollar stadiums. We will never see the Yankee’s leave New York. Teams like the Yankees would be able to pay for a new stadium in a short amount of time and still provide jobs for the citizens. If athletes really wanted to win they would play for the league minimum and allow room for other great athletes to be able to play for the same team. Thanks for the post!
Taylor Whethers Jacky Brammer English-111-40 October 5, 2015 Chrysler 200 Chrysler, a well-known American automobile business, took the opportunity to capitalize off of one of the country’s biggest events, by premiering a heartwarming Chrysler 200 promotional ad during the Super Bowl. They were clever in their tactics because the commercial was able to reach a large amount of people, due to the millions of viewers that tune into the game every year. This alone could have increased the sales of the new car, which was the company’s purpose, but they didn’t stop there. In actuality, the biggest seller of the ad was its nationalistic, relatable, and inspiring content. It’s rather ironic that a controversial rap superstar, infamous city, and a tough
In order to better humanities condition, advancement is always necessary. For many years, the United States has consistently justified its need for progress through the use of constant expansion. As seen, the United States has continuously kept up not just the latest of technology, yet lifestyle as well. As the economy boomed in the 1950’s, American families began to stabilize due to an economic boom and sought a better life outside the city. This led to the development of tract homes which were mass produced by William Levitt whose intention were to provide an affordable and traditional way of life.
Children of post war America are the most effective demographic gathering ever. Organizations flourishes or comes up short in light of their capacity to keep pace with the preferences and aversions of this financial powerhouse known as the people born after WW2. At 76 million in number, boomers have the impact to control the commercial center and ensure they keep a spot set only for them as the biggest era. Because of its substantial size, the Baby Boom era has significantly affected society, business, and the economy.

The Industrial Revolution happened during the late 18th century and the early 19th century, in the northern parts of the United States. It was a time when industry strived and manufacturing exploded and everything became mass produced. It was a key when it came to the war because everything was able to be mass produced and for not a lot of money. It helped society become more materialistic and able to trade easily. It caused many immigrants to think of North America as the land of opportunity and the American dream.
In music, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Buddy Holly and Marvin Gaye were the most prolific people on the world stage. Marlon Brando, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe ruled the cinematic stage. However, the major highlight of this era was the dawn of technologies involvement in our life. Radio, television and all electronics in general no longer became wants but needs. Once somebody owned one they were aware of everything happening around them, knew what’s hot and what’s not and could be easily persuaded to buy the newest vacuum cleaner model or dress from the shops.
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
America is regarded highly in the world, due to its economic, political, as well as social development. As countries mature politically, voter turnout is expected to increase. This is the case for most industrialized nations who experience an average voter turnout above 70%. However, it is troubling to see that America still lags below 60% in voter turnout. Viewed as one of the healthiest democracies in the world, the United States is always referred to as an example that other countries should follow.
