American History Defines Progress - 1867 -1909

(5 pp) In the last portion of the nineteenth century Americans progressed at an uneven gait. In the West, men took giant steps across the country as they explored and claimed land; often walking over others such as the Native Peoples in the process. These same men "brought their" women with them through incredible difficulties, but then saw no reason to give them any political allowances. Children were "owned" as much as women were. Racial differences, although somewhat equal on paper made little progress. In the East labor and management systems, political patronage, and social reform began to demand attention, and progressive attention.

Impacts to American Economy as a Result of the Iraqi War

A 3 page overview of the two views regarding the economic impact our current war with Iraq will have on the American economy. Those who support the war often contend that it will positively impact the economy much like World War II was successful in bringing us out of the Great Depression. Those who contest the war contend that it will have a disastrous impact on our economy. The author of this paper points out the relative percentage of the gross domestic product (GDP) for this current war is impressively less than that for previous wars such as World War II, Vietnam and even the Persian Gulf War. Consequently the economic impact will be quite minimal. We are unlikely to either profit or suffer greatly as a result of our war with Iraq. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

War's Economic Effects

An 8 page paper discussing the effects of war on the national economy. Though the "typical" response to wartime activity is that the national economy improves, this is no typical situation. We are not officially at war with any particular country, which likely has a dampening effect on releasing the beneficial economic aspects of war. The economy had been teetering on the brink of recession simply as part of the classic business cycle, and the terrorist attacks likely pushed it over the edge. Even that is not yet clear, and the action of the already-growing government may have a significant effect at a later time. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
