The 1920s era went by such names as the Jazz Age, the Age of Intolerance, the Age of Wonderful Nonsense, and the “Roaring Twenties”. Numerous Americans felt buoyed up following World War I as the economy began to prosper and Americans had survived the deadly worldwide flu epidemic of 1918.
For the first time, more Americans lived in cities than on farms.
In this decade, the United States became the richest nation on Earth. The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929, and this economic growth swept many Americans into an affluent but unfamiliar “consumer society. People from coast to coast bought the same goods, thanks to nationwide advertising and the spread of chain stores, listened to the same music, did the same dances and even used the same slang!
Many Americans were uncomfortable with this new, urban, sometimes racy “mass culture”; in fact, for most people in the United States, the 1920s brought more conflict than celebration. It seemed as though Dow Jones Industrial Stock Index would never quit increasing. Stock speculation went sky high in the bull market of 1928-1929. No one suspected that a signal of the end would occur on October 24, 1929, with the infamous stock market crash, and that more than a decade of depression and despair would follow such an era of happiness and prosperity.
