The Social Gospel Movement was involved with User: what two events helped to redefine the social and economic characteristics of America during the latter half of the nineteenth century?
Weegy: The postwar boom ended with a number of events in the early 1970s: the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in 1971 the growing influx of imported manufacturing goods, [ such as automobiles and electronics the 1973 oil crisis, the 1973–1974 stock market crash, and the ensuing displacement of Keynesian economics by monetarist economics, especially by the free-market Chicago School of Economics, led by theorist Milton Friedman.

Carter would later take much of the blame for the even more turbulent economic times to come, though some[who?] say circumstances were outside his control. Inflation continued to climb skyward. Productivity growth was small, when not negative. ] (More)
