Consumer demand and credit were increasing significantly, however the poor productivity of the industrial sector as a result of war could not keep up. Therefore the price levels had to increase to balance out the supply and the demand. Taxes in general also increased during the period: indirect and social security taxes doubled in the decade. (Cullip) However as the fifties allowed opportunity for the people to participate in a capitalistic society, firms and individuals faced incentives for growth through innovation and hard work. This helped increase real GDP and promoted higher living standards.
The demand for the government to take action and provide relief was high. President Roosevelt in response pushed program after program in effort to provide economic relief and recovery, this was known as the New Deal. A better society and guidance for the country was promised by President Roosevelt after the Great Depression era. The New Deal along with numerous programs were constructed in order to ease the effects of this adversity. A series of reforms, federal programs, and work projects for the people created by the government with the goal to end the Great Depression is known as the New Deal.
The Second Revolution, or “Gilded Age” was an age where the high social class rose higher and higher, and the low class stayed low; this was aided by the idea of Social Darwinism epitomized by Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, and their integration strategies forced the rest of American citizens through economic depressions. To begin, the Second Industrial Revolution altered the course of industry and the economy forever. It was a movement from America being a self-sufficient producer, such as a farmer, to
During the 1920s, before the Great Depression, the United States were living an age of intense social and political change, known as The Roaring Twenties, where the nation’s wealth massively expanded. However, as the Great Depression took place, the American economy incredibly was vastly reduced. Due to this event, the whole society was affected, especially the workers. As the economy slowed down, the workers’ wages were decreased at a point in which they were even struggling to find enough food. Leo Wolman, an important economist during the 1920s and 1930s wrote in one of his articles that, “The wage history of the current depression is of exceptional interest because of the severity of the decline in wages since 1929” (Wolman).
With the unbelievable speed of the development of the national transportation system and the speedy industrial growth, the United States was undergoing an incredibly economic growth during the late nineteenth century. The railroad rapidly spread all over the states and the middle class was experiencing remarkably prosperity. But behind the beautiful and glamorous cover, in the shadow of that age, the poverty of the labors; the corruption of the government; the challenges of the American democracy, were latent crisis that made the age gilded. China today is experiencing uniquely similarity of the Gilded Age of the US, and it looks exactly like a shadow of it. Highly developing transportation system; booming of the industry; progressive middle-class; corruption; environmental crisis… China seems rewriting the history, however, not quiet the seam with the Gilded Age, which in transportations or economy.
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 “robber barons” and “industrial statement”.
Education Importance Education is a priority around the world, nowadays schools are very common and are for educating our next generation.

How the Roaring 20’s created the American Dream and how it’s no longer achievable. Paragraph one with be about how the American dream has become no longer achievable with a source to help prove the point.“The labor turmoil and difficulties of the transition back to peacetime production caused a short but sharp recession from 1920 to '21, with unemployment briefly exceeding 11%.However, the situation soon turned around, thanks in no small part to Commerce Secretary—and future President—Herbert Hoover's success in convincing major industrial leaders to voluntarily increase wages and production in order to pull the entire economy out of its slump. By 1922, the economy was growing robustly, a pattern it would follow more or less continuously until the Great Crash of 1929.” (Shmoop) As time progress I need to make the point that the economy changes creating divides between economic classes. To show that my claim is valid. The second paragraph is to complete my idea of the change of economy with a source to make it a stronger argument.
In the Gilded Age, from 1870s to 1900s, the United States had undergone an unprecedented industrial revolution. Inventions made the country's economy prosper, with railroads and steam-powered ships to transport not only goods but labors. The two distinct classes emerged in the nation: capitals and labors. The conservative ideologies of capitalism gained their significance within the nation, endorsed by renowned businessmen such as William Graham Sumner and Andrew Carnegie. The pro-business view of the intrinsic relationship between labor and capital is demonstrated in Thomas Nast's cartoon published in 1874.
Ancestral debt: The most important cause of the existing rural indebtedness is the ancestral debt. Many agriculturists start their career with a heavy burden of ancestral debt and drag the loan for the whole of their lives, This increases the debt burdens on the inheritors, every time the debt is thus passed on. 3. Ease of taking loan: Formal agencies have fixed hours and stipulate that some formalities should be observed before the loans are sanctioned and then paid. On the other hand, a money lender has been easily approachable even at odd hours.
