What was Laissez-faire attitude of the American government toward the economy?
It was a hands off policy where big business wanted no government interference in their dealings. This led to the monopolization of many industries. John Rockefeller benefitted from this deal.
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
I don't think there is a single American attitude towards the Japanese. When I was younger in tyhe 80's, there was a strong fear and distrust of Japan (not unlike what w…e are experiencing with China right now). After all, you were beating us in manufacturing, and we were afraid of loosing our place on top of the world economy. Now, after Japan has had a lot of hard economic times, that attitude has largely vanished. In general, I think Americans think of Japanese as clever, industrious, creative (comics, movies, etc.) and and rather mysterious. We think of Japanese culture as exotic ... a culture that somehow blends modernity with ancient traditions. In general, I think the view is very positive now.
The Malaysian attitude towards American products is generally receptive. American brands like Starbucks, KFC, Mattel, P&G and the like are highly popular here, and we are seei…ng more and more American brands establishing themselves in Malaysia. - Sol, from Malaysia
Jefferson wanted to incorporate Native Americans into society peacefully, and to respect their rights instead of forcing American law on them............................…..............................................................................
Quite honestly, the English viewed the Native Americans as savages and Godless heathens. In fact many a Missionary attempted religious conversion for the Natives beliving it w…as their devine duty to save their savage souls. Also, there were many times that the Native Americans traded with the English and even supplied them with food during harsh winters. Without such assistance, many of them would have died of starvation. Sadly, the prejudice remained dominant within the English psyche. The native American also interacted by teaching the English how to grow crops and more
Alexander Hamilton was a Federalist. He and his backers were called the "Hamiltonian's" as opposed to Thomas Jefferson's form of government. He and his followers were called t…he "Jeffersonians." -The Hamiltonian's wanted a very strong central government as they admired the English aristocracy and the English system of government and wished to see it used as a model. -Hamiltonian's considered the common people ignorant and incapable of self-government. -Hamiltonian's desired high voting qualifications, claiming that unfettered democracy was anarchy. -Hamiltonian's favored a broad interpretation of the Constitution to strengthen the central government at the expense of of state's rights. -Hamiltonian's wanted an expanding bureaucracy. -Hamiltonian's, under certain circumstances, favored restrictions on speech and the press.
The American government influences the economy in various ways. This is in form of collecting taxes, establishing new industries, maintaining proper infrastructure and so …much more.
Laissez-faire pertains as much to government as it does to economics. This school of thought states that government should play as minimal a part in private transactions a…s possible, only as far as to protect property rights. This means no taxes, or subsidies, or tariffs, or anything of that sort.
The New Deal in essense paved the way for more and more welfare programs. Americans had long believed in self-reliance and individualism, but when the Depression hit many …of those who were very willing to work, simply could not find jobs. So from no fault of theirs personally, Americans striving to be self-reliant were not able to. When the New Deal was enacted, it gave instant relief to the needy and the elderly, and put people to work. Because it seemed to work so well at the time, more and more Americans began to place thier trust in the government. Also FDR presented what he called the Economic Bill of Rights (or the Second Bill of Rights), where he stated that Americans were entitled to jobs, liveable wages, healthcare, economic security in old age, education, a decent home etc. Before the New Deal and FDR, Americans had not considered it the governments job to provide them with these things, and as we see more and more Americans do feel that they are entitled to these things.
Senator Barry Goldwater, retired military men, many "blue collar" workers and middle class (the silent majority) members, and even some extreme members of the John Birc…h Society, were known as “hawks.” As President Johnson escalated the war effort, and became a hawk himself, his chief critics became known as “doves” and included antiwar protesters, college students and faculty, liberal Democrats, and many other people in various walks of life who felt that the war was immoral, dragging on to no benefit for the US, and was causing increased casualty lists to mount. Many believed the US was fighting a war against the wishes of the majority of the Vietnamese people. These critics felt the war was a civil war in Vietnam between north and south and we had no business interfering. Some supported the communist effort in Vietnam and hoped for a defeat of the “imperialist capitalist” United States. Many Americans felt we were fighting a small, unimportant county, while the real enemy was China and the Soviet Union. There were many demonstrations against the war which took the form of sit ins in college and high school campuses, marches both for and against the war, and editorials written for and against the war. One of the most infamous demonstrations took place at Kent State University, 1970, when National Guard troops fired on Kent State students and protesters and four were killed and eleven were wounded. Nixon had been elected on a promise to Vietnamize the war, meaning more fighting would be turned over to the South Vietnamese army, and to start bringing home American troops. When the President ordered US troops into Cambodia and ordered more bombings, the result was a tremendous uproar at home with more marches and demonstrations. Congress reacted to the antiwar feeling and repealed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which gave the President the authority to send troops and fight the war in Vietnam. Our purpose in the war is debated to this day.
8 What attitudes did white settlers and those in the US government have toward Native Americans after the Civil War?
In the post civil war era, Native Americans were attacked on cultural grounds rather than racial ones. Native American children were forced to learn English in designated …native schools and were forbidden to practice traditional ceremonies.
The American Economy is not a perfect 'hands off' economic system. Due to past over-speculation and corruption throughout American financial history, certain limits and restri…ctions have been laid down by the government to semi-regulate the economy. For example, without regulations, monopolistic companies propagated to a great extent in the late 1800's until anti-trust/anti-monopoly laws were enacted.
