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. At the same time, the consensus among experts moved against New-Deal-style regulation, in favor of deregulation. In the late 1960s it was apparent to some that this juggernaut of economic growth was slowing down, and it began to become visibly apparent in the early 1970s. The United States grew increasingly dependent on oil importation from OPEC after peaking production in 1970, resulting in oil supply shocks in 1973 and 1979. Stagflation gripped the nation, and the government experimented with wage and price controls under President Nixon. The Bretton Woods Agreement collapsed in 1971–1972, and President Nixon closed the gold window at the Federal Reserve, taking the United States entirely off the gold standard. President Gerald Ford introduced the slogan, "Whip Inflation Now" (WIN). In 1974, productivity shrunk by 1.5%, though this soon recovered. In 1976, Jimmy Carter won the Presidency. 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)
