The Legacy of the 1970s, assignment help

Question Description

3 pages double space, These papers ARE NOT SUMMARIES of readings, but to engage critically with the ideas and approaches of our authors. You can do this in several ways. You may choose to compare two authors’ views and explain why each came to a different conclusion (was it due to different sources, assumptions, ideologies?) and which view is more compelling or persuasive. Is there a concept or idea you find especially useful or problematic? If you are writing on a primary document, you should ask who the author’s intended audience was, what kind of perspectives are presented and (sometimes more important) silenced or rejected, and what the source tells us about a particular event, person, or period in history. Finally, you may choose to put the book or document under review in dialogue with the present. Can you use the author’s ideas to understand a current event? Or does a current event put the author’s ideas in doubt? Are their connections between this historical document and events unfolding in the present? Are there lessons to be learned, or alternatively are there false comparisons to be avoided?

The Legacy of the 1970s
Capitalist economies have been known to work in cycles of growth and recession. Before the
economic crisis that happened in the 1970s, the United States had already gone through a
depression of its own. In the 1930s, the American economy suffered from a collapse that led to an
increase in debt, unemployment and homelessness. What followed were years of making and
enacting policies to regulate the practices that had led to such an unfortunate economic occurrence.
War followed soon, and the economic impact that such an event is bound to have on economies.
It did not take long for the win of World War II to lead the nations of the West into a booming
phase of economic growth. For the 1950s and 1960s, the economy of the world had reached record
levels of unemployment and spending power; only to fall back into recession in the following
decade. These cycles go on and on, throughout the twentieth century and into ours, to lead a
financial crisis in the late 2000s.
