Eisenhower oversaw a productive and prosperous era. Government spending plus consumer demand boosted the gross national product (GNP). With 6 percent of the world's population, the United States produced half the world's goods. Technological advances, many achieved with federal aid, ushered in new industries and sped up the pace of production in old ones.

The Prosperous Fifties
The Big Five
The Auto Industry

Many factors converged to provide unparalleled social mobility in postwar America. Most important, income rose. Between 1945 and 1960, the median family income, adjusted for inflation, almost doubled. Rising income doubled the size of the middle class.

Before the Great Depression of the 1930s only one-third of Americans qualified as middle class, but in postwar America two-thirds did. GI Bill also provided low-interest loans to veterans buying homes or farms, or starting businesses.

Power point #2 is entitled, World Wars Era - The Middle Class Expands and contains 18 slides and covers the following:

Social Mobility
Servicemen's Readjustment Act
The GI Bill Benefits
Suburbia
Baby Boomers
Dr. Benjamin Spock
Women in the Job Market
The Automobile & Mobility
Educational Opportunities
Technological Advances
Consumer Demand & Debt
Advertising & Television
Television Programming

End of Presentation

World War I made the United States a world power. While European nations tried to recover from the war, the United States had overseas territories, access to markets, and plentiful raw materials. Formerly in debt to European investors, the United States began to lend money abroad.

The economy expanded. Assembly-line production, mass consumption, easy credit, and advertising characterized the 1920s. As profits soared, American zeal for reform waned, and business and government resumed their long-term affinity.

But not all Americans enjoyed the rewards of prosperity. A mix of economic change, political conservatism, and cultural conflict made the 1920s a decade of contradictions. As war production ended, the economy dipped briefly but by 1922 the nation began a spectacular spurt of growth.
