This paper displays how wartime production, increased demand for various products, a substantial availability of employment and an overall re invigoration of American patriotism refreshed economic conditions as the country enthusiastically embraced the war effort of WWII thereby exiting the war both as the victor and as one of the world's two super-powers, the other being the Soviet Union.
From the Paper:"The new economic circumstances resulted in a new approach toward the American standard of living. Prior to the war, the American dream was popularly asserted as “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” or at least a similar variation on that ideal. The aftermath of World War II however, saw a hyper-compensation for the potential of disillusionment with strategic product placement, quality family programming on television and, generally speaking, a restoration of puritanical American traditional values."
