.All the state offices are there (or the headquarters are there), the legislation is handled there, etc. It's the same reason Washington DC is important as the capital of the …US. A state capital has the same role, except on a smaller scale. It is the State Capital... Enough said.
The United States is a distributing rather than manufacturing country. Virtually everything that is used in the US is or can be imported.
The US mainly imports machinery, automobiles, technology, and chemicals from Europe.
Because it is the largest consumer.
It's probably more the other way around; the USA was very important to the Beatles' careers. But the Beatles' success in the USA was partly down to timing; much like in the UK… a year earlier. Their arrival on TV, and as a news story was shortly after huge, serious events. In the UK it was a big political scandal, the great train robbery and the worst winter of the century. In the US it was the assassination of Kennedy. So the Beatles' main effect was to lighten the country. Apart from that, many bands that formed in the 1960s (the Byrds in particular) have freely acknowledged the Beatles' influence. Brian Wilson has also said that the Beach Boys felt they were competing with the Beatles.

anything really besides oil
Cuba was known as "America's getaway." Before Fidel Castro took over the government, Cuba was really popular for tourism. Cuba also had many items and foods that people from A…merica couldn't easily get. Such as Cuban Cigars and some rare tropical fruits. Cuba used to be a huge ally with U.S.A.
It is 90 miles of the Florida coast and many people in Miami are from Havanna. These things make it important.
A unit is just a designation used to describe a physical quantity of something. Units are extremely important. Just imagine someone saying "My mass is 70". What does that mean…? 70 kilograms? 70 pounds? 70 tonnes?
The US imports many things from Europe. Some being, soap, different varieties of candy, car parts, food, cell phones, clothes, and many many ideas. I hope this answered your q…uestion. :)
it's important so that the USA won't be left alone from the other countries, and become a wild territory again.
