What was the economic impact at Pearl Harbor?
The economic impact at Pearl Harbor was a positive one. Women were able to receive jobs and help make war bonds in order to receive donations for new supplies. The war had taken America out of depression and made it a top country.

Thanks for the feedback!
We began fighting. We were not going to sit back and let 2,403 lives lost go unanswered
Mostly military losses; those were replaced from the mainland.
the bills went higher
The biggest impact was the switching from battleship construction to aircraft carrier construction.
Pearl Harbor was the Japanese attack on the USA. It was very important as this was the moment that the United States entered the war. Roosevelt had kept America neutral u…p until that point, though the country had been leaning to the Allied side. It was a surprise attack on the main naval base for the American Pacific fleet. The day after, war was declared on Japan. The US government then finished converting to a war economy and provided weapons and supplies for the Soviet Union and the UK. The Japanese officially declared war on America and Britain on December 8th 1941 and three days later Germany and Italy declared war on the United States. The USA then joined the war in Europe and was a great help to Britain, especially during D-Day. After the attack, most of the American people were fully behind the war effort of their country and propaganda about Pearl Harbor motivated them further.
The attack of Pearl Harbor was devastating to Oahu. Around 2,350 were killed and 1,178 were injured. The first wave was targeted at airfields and battleships. The second… wave hit other ships and ship facilities. The U.S. then became involved in what was World War II. After the war, many men were needed to replace the ones that died in the war. Women stepped up and started to work in offices, businesses, and factories. This was some impact on society and effects of the attack.
Society had to live their daily lives on a war footing.
pearl harbor impacted history because it lead to world war 2.
The impact of Japan's surprise-attack upon Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, is difficult to over-state. While it resulted in a temporary military set-back for America's n…avy, its longer-term impact was the galvanizing of America's fighting spirit along with the near-complete disappearance of any isolationist sentiment in America. America had been brought into the war, and it was now willing to fight.
As FDR said, It was a day that will live in infamy. For those who were alive on 7 December 1941 it was a truly historic day. The first thing that people did was to set down an…d look around at the young men who might have to be sacrificed on the battles that would passibly last for years. There were older brothers, cousins, friends, neighbors, classmates, lovers, husbands and fathers who were or might become involved. Only a few did not personally know someone who was already in the service of their country and a rare few had loved ones that were in the Pacific. The brighter and more forward thinking were already heading to the store to buy up items that would surely be impossible to obtain in the future weeks, months and years that were bound to be ahead. The First World War was well remembered by the eleders. The list of "Got to Have" or essential items could last forever. For most such purchases were based on wealth, geography, class and race, Asian Americans were certainly hurt the worst of all and many Japanese Americans lost a century of wealth building because they were forced to move away from the coast to the interior. Homes were sold for pennies on the dollar, businesses were abandoned after a lifetime of of effort and they became residents of tarpaper ghettos in the hinterland. Times were tough.
If your question is asking what the significance of Pearl Harbor was, then the most important result was the United States becoming involved in WWII.
In Pearl Harbor
Gave Americans a reason to join the war, previously, Americans were focused on staying out of the war. They passed neutrality acts, but after Pearl Harbor, they all unaminousl…y agreed to go to war.
In World War 2
With the Pacific Fleet out of commission and our only defense against a naval attack being on the other coast, the Japanese hoped that the attack would make the US stay out of… the war. It did the reverse effect and forced us out of our neutral isolationism and was the first step to America becoming a fighting force in the Second World War and eventually become a superpower.
In Pearl Harbor
It got America involved in the war. Who knows what would have happened if they didn't get involved.
In US in WW2
4 battleships were lost, along with 2 destroyers. On the American side, 200 planes were lost (most on the ground) and only a handful of Japanese aircraft were lost to the few …American aircraft that did manage to get into the air despite the ongoing destruction. You could rate Pearl Harbor as a tactical success for the Japanese but some objectives were not met. Take the 3 American carriers, for example. That we're all at sea and the Imperial Japanese Navy made no effort to find them. A third wave to strike Pearl Harbor was in place but Admiral Yamamoto was against it because of the loss of surprise. Repair facilities were not hit, and oil reserves still in place. All of those factors enabled the US Navy to make a quick comeback in the Pacific.
it shocked the government and the military/navy because it was unseen. it attacked Hawaii on Pearl Harbor, which was a military stronghold at the time. 8 battleships were …damaged, 4 were sunk. 6 of those were repaired and later brought back into the war. The japanese also sank American 3 cruisers, 3 destroyers, and a minelayer
