• How did the New Deal change over time and what alternatives were offered to it
Before FDR proposed the policies of the New Deal it was the general practice that the Fed Gov stay out of business affairs (laissez faire). Gov didn't really have regulations on businesses or banks and they sort of made their own rules. [ When the stock market crashed it was clear that they couldn't rebuild without some kind of help, Hoover just didn't know what he could do that would really
make a difference. He didn't consider the gov having such a major role in the revitalization of the economy because that just wasn't done, we feared that the gov would have too much power if it interfered with free trade, etc. FDR's New Deal was risky but it seemed to have had a lasting effect, though many of his programs didn't work, the large number of them made it seem more effective.Because of his very executive proposals, the gov today has a very big hand in the workings of businesses and especially Wall St. Basically it made the fed gov more controlling over businesses, banks and the stock market, it gave it more power. Hope that helps. ]

Weegy: The Civil Rights Movement gained in desegregating public places. There were also gains in voting rights. Redlining in housing was made illegal. [ Work remains to be done in urban education and employment.There are instances of Gerrymandering in voting districts, especially in the American south. en.wikipedia.org/.../African-American_Civil_Rights_Movement_(1955?.. ] User: • What objectives did the civil rights movement fail to achieve Weegy: The rights that Blacks gained after the Civil War, was short lived because of organizations such as the KKK (Klu Klux Klan).

[ Once Reconstruction had ended in 1877, and the last of the Union troops were pulled out of the South, it would get even worse.

How were they the same Weegy: MLK?s approach to civil rights/equality was non-violent protesting, speaking out for non-violence, passive resistance, and what he called, ?weapons of love?. However, Malcolm X?s approach to civil rights/equality was extremely different. [ He was suspicious of whites, willing to use ?by any means necessary? to achieve equality.

Which of the following was the best example of this User: Many placed a great deal of emphasis on technology in the 1930s. Which of the following is not a true statement about technology? (Points : 1) It was a symbol of freedom. It always increased efficiency. It represented an idea of progress. It was an ...
Weegy: Answer: It was a symbol of freedom. Technology Technology is the electric machines and systems that most people use daily. [ Technology has developed a lot during those years, and two important devices that most people use daily are the cellular and computer. The strongest advantage that technology can bring us is the much easier communication, and entertainment. Technology could bring us a much easier communication by the internet or by the cellulars. In the old days communication was much harder, people that were in different countries or cities either couldn't communicate with each other, or had to travel days to initiate communication with one another. Also when a person used to travel his/her family knew nothing about him/her or probably lost him/her, since none of his/her family would want to travel great distances in order to know about his/her news. Nowadays this great advantage of long distance communication would keep all the family together, even if both families were very far from each other. Technology could also bring us entertainment by the millions chatting programs, multiplayer games, and movies. In the old days people didn't have those kinds of entertainments, so they used to spend their leisure times by something that is probably concerned more boring. If someone in the old days had to be alone for like couple of months, then he/she would get very bored, and probably start going crazy. Nowadays even if someone was alone for years, there are always those entertainments to not get very bored as much as before. This advantage of the internet makes it very easy for anyone to social around. In conclusion, technology did really bring us advantages for the two main reasons I have mentioned. ] (More)
