Transcendence In his later years, Abraham Maslow explored a further dimension of motivation, while criticizing his original vision of self-actualization.
During the war 17 million new civilian jobs were created, industrial productivity increased by 96 percent, and corporate profits after taxes doubled. The government expenditures helped bring about the business recovery that ;had eluded the New Deal.
War needs directly consumed over one-third of the output of industry, but the expanded productivity ensured a remarkable supply of consumer goods to the people as well.
America was the only that saw an expansion of consumer goods despite wartime rationing.
BYas a result of wage increases and overtime pay, real weekly wages before taxes in manufacturing were 50 percent higher than in The war also created entire new technologies, industries, and associated human skills.
The war brought full employment and a fairer distribution of income. Blacks and women entered the workforce for the first time. Wages increased; so did savings. The war brought the consolidation of union strength and far-reaching changes in agricultural life.
Housing conditions were better than they had been before. In addition, because the mobilization included the ideological argument that the war was being fought for the interests of common men and women, social solidarity extended far beyond the foxholes.
Public opinion held that the veterans should not return jobless to a country without opportunity and education. That led to the GI Bill, which helped lay the foundation for the remarkable postwar expansion that followed.
The war also made us more of a middle-class society than we had been before. It is no exaggeration to say that America won the war abroad and the peace at home at the same time. But we have much to learn from that achievement as we face our troubles today.
Historians, economists, and politicians have long wondered why this remarkable social and economic mobilization of latent human and physical resources required a war. The answer, I think, is partly ideological. World War II provided the ideological breakthrough that finally allowed the U.
Despite the New Deal, even President Roosevelt had been constrained from intervening massively enough to stimulate a full recovery. By he had lost his working majority in Congress, and a conservative coalition was back, stifling the New Deal programs.
When the economy had begun to bounce back, FDR pulled back on government spending to balance the budget, which contributed to the recession of The war was like a wave coming over that conservative coalition; the old ideological constraints collapsed and government outlays powered a recovery.
For a time the government became the purchaser of one-half of all the goods produced by the American people. The stereotype of FDR as a regulation-lover flies in the face of experience in the s, when Roosevelt ended his cold war with business. Wartime planning was far more corporatist than New Deal planning, with far less class warfare.
Eleanor Roosevelt was still much more anti-business than Franklin, and was often furious at him. Afterantitrust enforcement virtually shut down. Despite the entente with business, FDR was still willing to go forward on the employment of blacks and women, in part because he believed that full productivity and wartime morale required it.
He also continued to advance trade unionism. He did insist, for example, that Ford Motor Company live up to its responsibilities under the Wagner Act.
When Ford refused, Roosevelt cancelled a lucrative government contract. This helped to produce the momentum for the big Ford strike in the spring of that brought the first union into Ford. But on other regulatory issues FDR compromised. A government that depended on these businesses to mobilize during the war could not be slapping them with antitrust suits at the same time.
Basically, Roosevelt made the decision that he had to mobilize the proprietors of the mines, the factories, and the shops. He realized Congress could provide the money, but it could not build the planes, design the tanks, or assemble the weapons. Without the cooperation of industry, massive production would never get off the ground.
He recognized also that private business could not find all the capital required for the expansion of the plants nor take the risk that the end of the war would leave them with no orders and excess capacity.
So the federal government, through the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, advanced the necessary money to expand the factories, often leasing them to industry. The government developed new sources of supply for raw materials and created quick mass transportation.Clausewitz's On War and Sun Tzu's Art of War in one volume.
The translation of Clausewitz's On War is the version done by German literary scholar O.J. Matthijs Jolles at the University of Chicago during World War II—not today's standard translation, but certainly the most accurate.
Modern Humans Evolve in Africa. During a time of dramatic climate change, modern humans (Homo sapiens) evolved in Africa. Like early humans, modern humans gathered and hunted food.
They evolved behaviors that helped them respond to the challenges of survival. The first modern humans shared the planet with at least three species of early humans.
