identify economic and social problems americans faced after world war 2
After World War II, America became almost superstitious of communism, thus the Cold War between America and Russia began.
The economy had rebounded during World War 2. The country now had to train, educate and employ 2 million men and 300,000 women returning from the war. Many of the service people married after the war. They needed jobs, homes and cars. The US created the GI bill to benefit the soldiers with medical care, ability to go to college and buy homes. The bill is a lot more comprehensive than that but you get the basic idea. Another problem was to restore the war manufacturing companies to manufacture what they were making prior to the war. The government did help some of them do that. War armament manufacturers had to adjust to the reduced orders. Military equipment and planes, ships and boats had to be recycled or reused in the Korean War. Women had to give up their war jobs and readjust to that too. The economy continued to transform and grow until the 1970s.
