Lassezfaire Government - 389 words
Laissez-faire policy has always been a fundamental principle of the federal government. Between the years of 1860 and 1900, the governments role seems to be very small. New government policies are almost nonexistent and the few policies they enforced were standard government administrations. However, toward the end of the century, economic growth in the US can be linked to direct government intervention. From the mid 1970s to the early 1890s, the federal followed standard government procedure and maintained the national military, conducted foreign policy and collected tariffs and taxes.

Plato said, The appetites or the passions may gain control of him and refuse to obey the dictates of his highest part, reason or mind. (Frost 131) If this is so what was Ford Motor Company so hungry for in the early 1970s to knowingly sell thousands of unsafe cars to its customers?

We live in an era of economic challenges. It is an age of increasingly scarce resources and world markets. Enterprises face increasingly fierce competition not only from down the street but from enterprises halfway around the world that have access to cheaper labour, less expensive materials, or better technology.

Great Depression - 2,000 words
The Great Depression was the worst economic decline ever in U.S. history. It began in late 1929 and lasted about a decade. Throughout the 1920s, many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; the main causes were the unequal distribution of wealth and extensive stock market speculation. Money was distributed unequally between the rich and the middle-class, between industry and agriculture within the United States, and between the U.S. and Europe. This disproportion of wealth created an unstable economy. Before the Great Depression, the "roaring twenties" was an era during which the United States prospered tremendously. The nation's total income rose from $74.3 billion in 1923 t ...

In the southern states of the USA, the period known as Reconstruction created a pressure and fear and hate for the African Americans among many of the southern white people.
