Economical and Social Effects of WW1
- Due to WWI, Britain's role in international trade was severely diminished. This affected the British economy badly, especially the Staple Industries (Coal, Iron/Steel, Textiles etc).
- During the war, the disruption of trade had led former overseas customers to Britain (i.e. Russia and the Far East) to reduce the amount of imports from Britain. In the Far East, markets for British goods had been penetrated by new competitors such as Japan who had already seperceded the British in industry
- After the war, problems for British exporters worsened as foreign countries protected their economies with tariffs and govt subsidies.
- Britain had accumulated £1 billion of debt because of the war, owed mainly to the USA
- After a brief post-war boom, in the Winter of 1921-22 a slump set in as world demand contracted. The result of this was large scale unemployment in northern England, south Wales and south-west Scotland

i dont knoww howw aboutt u tell mii
The economic were that the Germans trashed the French economy. Social, I don't know.
When Germany lost ww1the Allied Powers-mainly France, Britain, Russia, the U.S looted every thing of value including raw materials sources from it. This let to a period …of great privation with Germans going hungry as well as hyper inflation. This prepared the way for Adolph Hitler and the NAZI party to get control of the country and steer it on a fresh path towards yet another World War.
The economies of both victorious and lost countries were in a very bad condition. Countries except America and Japan whether won or lost became BANKRUPT!!
Politically, World War II divided Europe between free and communist countries. Economically, Europe was destroyed and without the Marshall Plan would have collapsed. In th…e Communist countries, the economy was nationalized and trade with non-communist countries practically disappeared. Culturally, Israel was set up to give Jewish people a country, Japan went from Monarchy to Democracy, Germany was divided in two.
Social Darwinism affected ww1 because people believed they were better than Russians and other European countries, because of social darwinism people could justify their cruel… actions and feel ok about it. Social Darwinism was taken wayyy too far out of context than what Charles Darwin intended it. the belief in Darwinism caused rivalries between the different countries.
Industrial production and the atomic age.
Gave them a taste of economic self reliance and incorporated them into the work world.
Up until WWII, most women were perfectly happy being the little homemaker and not lifting a finger to do work for money. When the war started, women were need to work in the f…actories producing just about everything to keep the country and military running. This was difficult for them because 1. they had never had to put on pants and do men's work before and 2. a lot of people did not like them doing it, but they didn't have much of a choice. Many women had to go to work to support their families because their husbands and/or fathers were at war. A lot of them were shunned, especially by older women and men.
Political: The aftermath of WW1 created a resentment of the world powers in the German populous because of the harsh treatment they received Germany had to pay all …reparations to the countries that were involved. (The U.S. canceled most of the debt owed to it by Germany. Our bankers also helped pull Germany out of it's enormous amount of debt.) (Don't copy and paste this for your report, you (insert inappropriate adjective and noun here).) This punishment was mainly because of the French. They blamed the war entirely on Germany. The French and the Germans have always had disputes. If there was a war in Europe anytime in the past, chances are that Germany and France were involved. The resentment created from the harsh punishment helped fuel WW2. The United States was strictly against this punishment because of the extreme amount of reconstruction it knew that Germany had to undergo. This U.S. learned this hard lesson of reconstruction from the aftermath of their own Civil War when the South had to undergo an immense amount of reconstruction without the aid of slaves, which had been a large part of their economic power. (One of the reasons the bleedin' Yanks didn't pull out of Iraq immediately!!!!)
well it lost allot of out people to fight so sometimes we were defenceless
World War I, known at the time as the "Great War', and "the War to End All Wars", had a multi-layered effect on the United States. Politically, the U.S. resumed an isolationis…t attitude towards the world, particularly to political affairs in Europe, and was unwilling to become involved in any external disputes or conflicts. The brutality of the war, and significant loss of life played a pivotal role in this perspective. Economically, the U.S. emerged as a premier superpower in the world. The war effort further accelerated the the industrialization of commerce, and GDP (gross domestic product) increased greatly. Socially, there occurred an influx of women into the workforce, as most of the men had been conscripted to serve during the period of U.S. involvement. The social and economic upheaval of half of the population, as well as an overall sense of loss of innocence, contributed to the period of the twenties of as one of the "Lost Generation" of poets, writers, and artists emerging from the war experience, as well at the "Roaring Twenties" of the suffragist movement, Prohibition and subsequent increase in bootlegging and organized crime.
Yellowstone had fewer visitors
on the US?? nothin' we wern't in ww2
Economicly, each country which was involved in the war lost a lot amout of money. Emotionally soldiers were in a bad mood, because when they came back they saw that the wo…men, immigrants and even unmature men took over their job. Politicaly, Treaty of Versailles made division between countries and Germany was under a huge pressure.
some social effects of WW1 are that citizens would feel grief when they found out they lost there loved ones during war. Another social outcome of WW1 was women were recog…nized for holding down the fort while the men were away. One more social outcome of WW1 was that for some less successful country's in the war (such as Germany ,Italy, and Russia's) citizens felt panicked that there leaders weren't capable of successfully running there country.
