The United States and its Progression in Trade
During the early part of the 20th century the United States and its growing economy was mainly stimulated and advanced by its heavy application of protectionist ideals.
Their growing economy was not only “protected” from outside countries and their industries but also it maintained a sense of patriotism that supported its trade policies.
Because of such protectionists ideas in the field of trade the government and the nation as a whole was able to increase it’s infrastructure, maintain a sense of stability
by not heavily depending on imports, and more importantly was able to advance American industries by supporting their growth and in a sense “nationalizing” them.
