1.The executive government emerged from the war as a potent economic actor, able to regulate economic activity and to partially control the economy through spending and consumption from the World War II.


2.The Great Depression of 1929 devastated the U.S. economy. A third of all banks failed. 1 Unemployment rose to 25%, and homelessness increased. 2 Housing prices plummeted 67%, international trade collapsed by 65%, and deflation soared above 10%.


3.The Cold War shaped American foreign policy and political ideology, impacted the domestic economy and the presidency, and affected the personal lives of Americans creating a climate of expected conformity and normalcy. By the end of the 1950's, dissent slowly increased reaching a climax by the late 1960's.


4.The overall effect of war has had a positive relationship due to more people joining the military which leads to more job openings. Ex. A major reason why the U.S. got out of the Great Depression was aided by the start of WWII which helped skyrocket the workforce.
