In the years following the end of WW 2, the US economy reverted to one which significantly reduced its production of war supples due to the ending of WW 2. It's economy did place an emphasis on war production based on the Cold War. However, there was a vast difference between that "war production" economy versus the WW 2 war production economy.The US economy, not hampered by rebuilding its infrastructure because it escaped the ravages of WW 2, began to produce consumer products for itself and for the world. It also made gains in farmland production. This too was a benefit for itself and many other parts of the world. The US economy began an overall expansion period, probably the largest one in its history.

The effects of World War II upon the American economy are difficult to over-estimate.

Qualitative improvements also followed, as creative American business and political leaders discovered new and better ways to make old products; they also discovered new products which contributed to victory during the war and to a more diverse (and profitable) economy once the war ended.
