All three of these countries evolved to be major world powers during the period from Early modern history to modern history. Europe during this period of vast change began to move away from the absolute dominance seen by the Monarchies during much of the Middle Ages. The people of Europe began to rebel against the status quo that had been in place for centuries. Critical thinking and logical reasoning began to be practised by the citizens of Europe and this led to a cultural revolution, in which the early seeds of the democracies we now see were planted.

The gold standard, which had long served as the basis for national currencies and their exchange rates, had to be temporarily suspended in order to recover from the costs of the Great War, but the United States, European nations, and Japan put forth great effort to reestablish it by the end of the decade. The key factor in turning national economic difficulties into worldwide Depression seems to have been a lack of international coordination as most governments and financial institutions turned inwards. Great Britain, which had long underwritten the global financial system and had led the return to the gold standard, was unable to play its former role and became the first to drop off the standard in 1931.
