San Diego State University Prosperity in the 1920s Discussion Questions
I’m working on a History exercise and need support.
1. How did the prosperity of the 1920s highlight the disparity and inequality of different ethnic groups and social classes? Which groups did not share in the prosperity of the 1920s?
2. Explain how the global economic collapse led to the rise of totalitarianism. Give examples from different nations.
3. Talk about the reasons that prohibition failed. Why did organized crime go unchecked for so long?
