Let Freedom Ring!: Why Not Another World War?
There is overwhelming agreement among economists that the Second World War was responsible for decisively ending the Great Depression. When asked why the wars in Iran and Afghanistan are failing to make the same impact today, they often claim that the current conflicts are simply too small to be economically significant. There is, of course, much irony here. No one argues that World War II, with its genocide, tens of millions of combatant casualties, and wholesale destruction of cities and regions, was good for humanity. But the improved American economy of the late 1940s seems to illustrate the benefits of large-scale ... market research, surveys and trends

Great Depression (1930's) News - The New York Times
The Great Depression was a worldwide economic crisis that in the United States was marked by widespread unemployment, near halts in industrial production and construction, and an 89 percent decline in stock prices. It was preceded by the so-called New Era, a time of low unemployment when general prosperity masked vast disparities in income. The start of the Depression is usually pegged to the stock market crash of “Black Tuesday,” Oct. 29, 1929, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell almost 23 percent and the market lost between $8 billion and $9 billion in value. But it was just one in a series of losses ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Societal standards and laws related to gambling have tended to change back and forth from prohibition to regulation. These changes in law have led one noted ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Rockefeller Jr. made the vision of restorating this entire city a reality. As a full-time philanthropist, Rockefeller was eager to give back to society from his inherited millions. After temporarily and unsuccessfully funding the temperance movement, Rockefeller recognized that fueling a revival of orthodox religion was a far greater task than was achievable with total results.
