Haley McCord 4/28/15 Per. 2 Ch. 30 Pertinent Questions 1. The causes of the great economic growth were government spending that ended the  Depression, the baby boom that peaked in 1957, and suburb growth.  As a result family  incomes were raised and the American people had achieved the highest standard of living of any society in the history of the world.  2. The growth of the west was due to federal investment and spending on different  infrastructure projects to help the economy and the increase in automobile use. 3. The Keynesian theory was the belief that Keynesian economics made it possible for  government to regulate and stabilize the economy without intruding directly into the  private sector. Paul Samuelson’s economics text book Economics, acquainted a  generation of college students with Keynesian ideas. 4. The federal government tended to award military contracts to large corporations and the  agricultural work force declined. 5. Workers in big industries were given generous increases in wages and in return the  unions agreed to refrain from raising other issues.   6. The labor unions were under investigation for corruption and violence.   7. The most important advance was the development of new antibacterial drugs capable of  fighting infections that in the past had been all but untreatable.   8. Computers were being constructed to perform commercial functions for the first time, as  data­processing devices used by businesses and other organizations. 9. Americans were alarmed and thought of it as a huge American failure.  America launched its own first satellite in January 1958. 10. Consumers were responding eagerly to new products and the posterity fueled consumer  crazes. 11. Highways reduced travel time from one place to another drastically and encouraged the  movement of economic activities out of the cities and into the suburbs which caused the  decline in many traditional downtowns. 12. Many people were attracted by the idea of living in a community populated largely by  people of similar age and background, the houses were affordable, and neighborhoods  had many things in common with each other but were not uniform. 13. The television replaced newspapers, magazines, and radios as the nation’s most important holder of news.   14. The writers wrote harsh critiques of what they considered the sterility and conformity of  American life, the meaninglessness of American politics, and the banality of popular  culture. 15. There was a growing sense among young people in America of limitless possibilities and  of the declining power of such traditional values as thrift, discipline and self­restraint. 16. The rock music derived from black rhythm and blues traditions. 17. The groups in society were the elderly, the African Americans, the Hispanics and the  Native Americans. 18. Immigrants came in from both Mexico and Puerto Rico which expanded Hispanic  neighborhoods and many American cities.   19. The urban renewal was better at eliminating the rundown buildings than helping the  people who lived in them. 20. The same lawyers filed the suits against the school boards of Topeka, Kansas, and several other cities that became the basis for the Brown decision. 21. He responded by federalizing the National Guard and sending troops to Little Rock to  restore order and ensure that the court orders would be obeyed. 22. The Supreme Court decision in 1956 that declared segregation in public transportation  illegal was inspired by the boycott. 23. King’s approach was based on the doctrine of nonviolence which is passive resistance  even in the face of direct attack. 24. Television and other forms of popular culture encouraged African Americans to mobilize  as it increased the consciousness of racism among blacks. 25. Eisenhower appointed wealthy corporate lawyers and business executives who were not  apologetic about their background. 26. Eisenhower supported private rather than public development of natural resources unlike  Roosevelt and Truman. 27. McCarthy operated with impunity and he attacked Secretary of the Army Robert Stevens  and the armed services in general in 1954. 28. The real force behind the massive­retaliation policy was economics. 29. Negotiators at Panmunjom finally signed an agreement on July 27, 1953 that ended the  hostilities. 30. Eisenhower refused to permit direct American military intervention in Vietnam.  31. President Truman recognized Israel as the new Jewish homeland the day after Israel  proclaimed its independence. 32. The American CIA drove Mossadegh from office and replaced him with Shah who  remained close with the United States for years. 33. To punish Nasser for his friendliness toward the communists, in 1956, Dulles withdrew  American offers to assist in building the great Aswan Dam across the Nile. 34. A popular movement to the Batista regime in 1957, began to gain strength under the  leadership of Fidel Castro. 35. Eisenhower resisted military intervention in Vietnam and he urged placed a measure of  restraint on those who urged the creation of an enormous American military  establishment.
