The Europeans saw the popularity of newspapers and magazines in the United States and completely let go of the way they used to write their newspapers. And even to date we see that the American way of news casting and magazines are intertwined with our own.

In chapter 5 Pells says the following: “On the one hand, the majority of countries in Western Europe needed the tourists’ dollars to ease their balance-of-payment problems during the 1950s and to help keep their economies prosperous thereafter. On the other hand, the natives resented having to restructure their societies to accommodate the visiting Americans” (Pells 137).

John F Kennedy once said, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” The Roaring Twenties were filled with many changes from social and political change to important consumer products arising. There were new fashion trends, new technologies, and new possibilities. Thanks to the spread of chain stores and nationwide advertising, people from everywhere were listening to the same things, buying the same objects, and also using the same informal language.
