American success and major failures

February 9, 2017

America is a huge country and it´s not always been successful. A lot of things have happened since World War II.

American success after the war:

1. After the second world war many countries where destroyed, which made american success possible.

2. At the same time China and the USSR had more or less self-destructed.

But we can also find several major setbacks for the United States of America. Frank Li shows us that the major setbacks and failures are:

1. The Military-industrial complex

2. THe Executive Order 10988 signed by President John F Kennedy, where he allowed the workers to organize by etablishing trade unions.

3. Finally Lyndon B Johnson and his Great Society turned out to be a major failure (Li.2016:56-57).
