    "The USA entered WW1 purely for economic reasons" How far do you agree with this statement?

    Does anyone know how you would plan an answer to this??
    We won't get questions about America before 1917 or about their entry into WW1. We can be asked about the impact of the war on the economy.

    Don't think they could ask that question, more likely to be 'The impact of world war 1 was purely economic' how far do you agree?
    Thank you!

    Guys someone give me points on what to use if the following essay came up for the 40 marker ;
    To what extent did Hoover elongate the Depression /Hoover's actions caused the Depression to worsen, how far do you agree?

    We are ONE FAMILY ALL STRIVING TO SMASH THIS EXAM TOMORO, come on ppl lets do this together !
    BALANCING THE BUDGET: Only spending 3% of GNP compared to the 20% of the 1990s on Federal Spending. Lack of Federal Relief Programme as it would "unbalance the budget" - caused poverty and decreased disposable income which caused a lack of demand. Revenue Act of 1932 - increased max tax rates from 25% to 63% - took money out of people's pockets at the worst possible time and reduced liquidity from the already struggling market.

    VOLUNTARISM: Hoover failed to involve the Federal Government in the Depression, instead seeking help from big businesses to freeze wages and not fire workers in order to better the economy. Shows how Hoover failed to acknowledge the severity of the Depression as, by 1930, US Steel broke this promise and had cut wages by 10%. By 1933, they had no full-time employees. Hoover's idea that maintaining the level of workers would help the economy was naive as it would only cause more overproduction as demand had fallen drastically. This again, severed the effects the Depression and caused later effective intervention on Hoover's part to be too little too late.

    FAILURE TO AID BANKS: Hoover failed to help the banking crisis properly. He could not recognise the failure in the banking system and instead simply threw money at them instead of fixing their inherent flaws (lack of branch banking, corrupt owners, etc.) National Credit Corporation was a total failure and only $10 mil of its $500 mil budget was spent. However, he did have success it in the Reconstruction Finance Corporation in 1932. Roosevelt even carried this on.

    TARIFFS: Hawley-Smoot essentially throttled international trade and was a turning point for the severing of the Depression. Imposed 42% tax on foreign goods which provoked economic nationalism. US export value fell from $5.2 bil in 1929 to only $2.1 bil in 1933. Shattered world trade and it stopped debt repayments coming into the USA as many countries entered economic failure. WAS A BIG CAUSE IN THE SEVERING OF THE DEPRESSION AS IT THREW THE WORLD ECONOMY INTO TURMOIL AND COUNTRIES SUCH AS GERMANY AND BRITAIN WERE DRAMATICALLY EFFECTED.

    Overall: If you haven't already figured it out, Hoover's policies were very bad.

    quite a few, a lot of the marks come from facts and figures, however, for the 40 marker, remember that there is a lot more marks up for grabs from the source analysis!

    Is this correct:
    Causes of depression: Nature of Bull Market, Loss of confidence, Instability in the Market, banking system and international economic crisis.

    My paragraphs would be:

    - Failed government policies (main cause)
    - Banking system
    - Unequal Distribution of Wealth
    - Wall Street Crash (more of a symptom than a cause)

    Link the other paragraphs back to failed government policies to cement the fact that it was the main cause

    My system is mainly Point Evidence (with extra facts/figure), Explain

    Hi y'all.

    If for a Question A I got the KKK for example (how impactful were the KKK) , would it be alright to do three paragraphs with three examples in each paragraph? So for example:

    Political impact:

    Six Governorships

    Two Georgian Senators

    Cost Al Smith the Democratic nomination

    Cultural impact:

    5 million members in 1925

    The Birth of a Nation

    Washington D.C march of 1928

    Third Para-???
