When we went into space, we created a new and innovative industry that gave the economy a boost. So many companies nowadays rely heavily on things like GPS or are only existent because of this new area of economics and business. If we continue to push these boundaries, we will once again discover new, world changing industries that would have never been created had we not gone farther into space. Another benefit of space exploration is boost that it gives the economy. When Tyson is preaching the benefits of increased funding for space exploration, he writes “20th century USA as much of its strength and economic security to it support for science and tech” (Tyson, pg 150).
As America evolves throughout the twentieth century, so does what people view as important, which adds on to what the American Dream means. The culture of the 1920s encouraged spending and materialism so people sought money, power, and expensive items to make them happy. In the Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby, who is the epitome of the 1920s American Dream, saw that becoming rich and notable was the only way to get his Dream which was Daisy: “She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.”(Fitzgerald, ch 7) Furthermore, despite the fact that Tom was born with a silver spoon, he still felt he didn’t have the American Dream because Gatsby was more popular than him: “I know I’m not very popular. I don’t have big parties. I suppose you’ve got to
Capitalism can generally be described as a system that helps the majority but exploits the minority. Even so, capitalism can be very helpful to the country in their own way. In the 1950s, capitalism mainly helped the country with economic growth. During the decade, the country was going through a major inflation as a result of World War II. Consumer demand and credit were increasing significantly, however the poor productivity of the industrial sector as a result of war could not keep up.
That is what makes the Gilded Age a celebrated time, it was not perfect time period by all standards but this idea of the social division was important to the growth of this county at this time. We see the rise of third parties as well in the Gilded Age. They never win an election, but they bring important ideas to the US government. In conclusion the Gilded Age should be considered a time period of growth and development because of the expansion of industry. The “captains of industry” brought growth to the US economy.
The United States through capitalism gained economic strength which separated them from most of the countries across the globe. The two major developments at this time which added to the growth of the United States as a World power was: first, the science and technological sources towards the military. Besides from the development of the atomic bomb, the United States had superior weaponry and strategy at this time. The second, was the rise in air power which was in large part due to the Strategic Air Command (SAC), which still to this day remains a crucial part of the success of the United States military. Additionally, World War II aided the U.S. economy and allowed for the United States to raise its GDP significantly and supply people effected by the depression with jobs.
The Industrial Revolution brought many opportunities to those that had none. Bid cities, Agriculture, Railroads were the top three contributors to the overall growth of the nation. Entrepreneurs saw this type of rapid growth and lack of regulation as an opportunity to make an enormous amount of money. Some of the biggest monopolies in the railroad industry were created and all those less fortunate suffered at the hands of these businessmen and politicians. Some would argue that during the period following the Civil War, it was very prosperous for the American farmer as the nation saw a huge increase in agricultural growth.
The budget has been diminished completely all the way to half of a percent (Zeller, 2014). The U.S. needs to make a larger investment into NASA, by increasing their overall budget therefore benefiting citizens and the country. In this essay, I will go over the history of NASA and their budget, the problems a low budget for NASA generates. Next, I will explain the causes of NASA’s decrease in budget and the effects this has had on the US. Finally, I will advocate why the US should increase their budget to double what it is currently at also addressing counter-arguments.
But after the civil war there were many changes which took place in United States and their wealth also increased. After World War II, the United States emerged as economically stable and prosperous country. American companies were growing rapidly and both major parties of World War II were committed for making Economic reforms and keep unemployment low. Therefore the United States led a system was developed called as Bretton Woods system to equally divide the share between the nations. The US dollar was made common currency for trade which made the United States a global leader and it was advantage for United States companies to do trade in their national currency.

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.
