Our Economy

After the attack on Pearl Harbor on the morning of Dec 7 1941(Dec 8 in Japan) the U.S was ready to enter into World War ll

World War ll and the Great Depression as the most important economy event of the 20 century. The war was the thing that ended the depression itself. The process of preparing for the war really changed our industries and economy. We went from peacetime industries to war time industries over night. Men went to war when women took over all the industries. Woman went from cooking food at home to making bombs and tanks.


FDR did many things for preperation for the war. Such as:-Authorizing the doubling of the size of the U.S. Navy.-Pledging to come to the aid of any North, Central, or South American country that was attacked.-Pushing Congress to approve the first peacetime military draft in U.S. history. The draft required the registration of all men between the ages of 21 and 35 (about 16 million men).-Trading 50 old U.S. Navy destroyers to England in return for leases on military bases on English possessions in the Caribbean.-Pushing the Lend-Lease Act through Congress, which authorized FDR to sell, trade, lease, or just plain give military hardware to any country he thought would use it to further the security of the United States.-Ordering the Navy to attack on sight German submarines that had been preying on ships off the East Coast.


The process of preparing for war started in the middle of the 19th century. The recruitment of volunteers to fill the ranks no longer sufficed. Governments turned to conscription, created huge forces, and harnessed their national economies to conduct war.
