There are many types of English spoken around the world, for example: Australian English, American English and British English. This shows that powerful countries use the dialect of English, thus making the language influential. Powerful countries for instance America, has a great economic growth that impacts foreign countries economic growth. America also has its shares of conquests during WW1 and WW2 and taught many colonies the dialect, culture and behaviour of English. This thus emphasises that having English as a global language helps countries economic growth and makes it difficult for other countries to compete with it due to their Military, Political and Economic power (Nunan, 2001).
Great Britain could only trade with America as all of the other countries were tied up in the war. This helped the boom significantly. More factors that contributed to the boom were confidence, mass technologies, advertising, chain stores and big mail order companies. All these helped contribute to the boom as there were lots more products available and they were cheaper, this then made then affordable for everyone. People had more confidence in new products as they were so rich and willing to take a risk.
The size of Blockbuster became its major source of advantage. By being the biggest player it could build a film library with enough copies to serve the public so that they would be able to find what they wanted. Even though the rise of DVD’s made it cheaper to obtain a library, revenue sharing made it mostly irrelevant. Blockbuster’s size and clout allowed it to secure more favorable terms that other stores, especially independents, could not match. The costs, though less for everyone, was even less for Blockbuster.
. . North and Poor South.” (Allen, 64) In North America most of their settlers were worried more about the economic gain instead of the religious aspects, therefore North America was glad they were close to Britain because it made exporting easier. North America focused on the stable of staples, which determines the growth of a region based on the growth of its exports. The sales that they received on the exports went towards the money for them to buy manufactured goods, which were imported from Britain since they realized that they could produce more than others were capable to.
For there to be a truly global cinema industry it would mean that many national cinema industry were popular and thriving. That people were being exposed to a wide range of films from numerous countries. However this isn’t the case. The majority of films that get the exposure around the world are Hollywood films, it is this films that have the most impact in the film industry and so the American dominance limits the capacity for other national cinemas to contribute to the economy.
The majority of all utilities that we use today are even from the United States, but instead were probably assembled in places other than the United States. Globalization doesn’t just help manufacturers in China and Singapore, but it greatly benefits the average American. In America, globalization really means better business with lower overhead and the American population is lavished with a large variety of products available to them but at lower, more competitive pricing as a result of a strong, flexible economy. Globalization has positive and negative aspects, but overall I believe that globalization can the average American far more than it would hurt him or her if we learn to embrace the effects it brings to our nation. The past seventy years have seen a steady increase of globalization in our lives.
These new industries meant that Americans believed that America was the most powerful country in the world. Americans therefore bought consumer goods because it was a sign of America’s prosperity. This led to more and more things being bought which aided the economic boom. The growing strength of American industry was a big factor in the economic boom. In the twenties, industry took a very big step.
The Boom in Nineteen-Twenties The economic boom in America was the sudden increases in economics. The economics of America was America's money. Businesses grew because they were selling more goods, and making more money. Because of increased demand and increased production, companies had to employ more people. This means that more money was available to spend.
Because of Americas new founded wealth, americans citizens used their new extra money on entertainment. Prohibition caused economic growth due to the illegal selling and using of liquor. More jobs became open to all people and wages, and hours increased making it easier for people to have a satisfying living. Child labor laws made restrictions on the age, and how much a child could work, and this made people way more relaxed about factory workers. Loans were an easy way for people to be able to achieve their goals during this period of time.
These made it very expensive for foreign goods to be imported into the country because of large taxes on them, and so not much money was going abroad. They also protected the businessman from foreign competition and so allowed business to grow even more. Low taxes also promoted the boom by leaving people with more money to spend and so encouraging them to buy more American goods. It also encouraged wealthy people to reinvest back into American industry. Although all these factors were very important to the "boom" the car industry was a major contributor to it.
