CCC Chart and Reflection
Event: 1980 Election
: political because it caused a change in the government
: Americans wanted a firm, patriotic leader who had a plan to fix the economic problems
: Carter was running for reelection, and Americans overall were very unhappy with his leadership. Ronald Reagan emerged as his challenger, a former actor with great public skills and a plan
: They elected Ronald Reagan in 1980 who had a controversial plan for fixing the U.S. economy, later dubbed “Reaganomics.”
Do you think President Ronald Reagan's policies had a positive or negative effect on the country overall?
- I think that President Ronald Reagan's policies had a positive effect on the country overall. Reagan managed to bring an end to the Cold War by having good relations with the Soviets. His policies also helped end the threat of communism.
What do you think was the most significant event of the 1980's?
I think the most significant event of the 1980s was the technological advancements. This time period is what led us to making larger technological leaps, especially with personal computers. I think most people wouldn't know what to do about a lot of things if we didn't have the advanced technology we have now and we continue to create.
: economic because of factories overseas being created and people in the US loosing their jobs to people in the other countries
: businesses were building factories in foreign countries to have their products be made there and be shipped to the US because it was much cheaper than if it were all done in the US
: those factories began to expand more throughout other countries and throughout the US, so many Americans started to to lose their jobs
: many Americans from the Dust Belt migrated to Sun Belts in seek of jobs and lower taxes
Event: Social Concerns
: social because there were a lot of significant social events that took place in the 1980s and caused much concern
: the discovery of AIDS, compact discs, NASA, and the effects on drugs in inner cities
: the discovery of AIDS was originally thought to be only among gay men; compact discs were creating a frenzy in music; NASA's progress concerned many people due to many astronauts dying in space shuttles; the Say No to Drugs movement was motivated by Reagan's wife, motivating children in inner cities to say no to drugs
: the discovery of AIDS made people more aware of their health and doctors/scientists started looking for a cure; compact discs evolved more to where people were able to record their own music and watch concerts like the Live AID concert for Africa; NASA have achieved a lot when discovering stars and planets and universes
My choice - Social and Political
Event: Just Say No
: social because its audience was the American youth society and was made to impact them
: many young Americans at the time were being influenced by television and celebrities taking drugs, so they started to take them as well; this effort was to try and inform and prevent the youth of society form using drugs
: with Public Service Announcements and teaching in schools, the public was becoming more aware of the effects of drugs
: the public experienced a rapid drop in the usage of drugs among adolescents
Event: The Wall Comes Down
: political because of the unification of Germany when the Soviet domination in Eastern Europe ended
: Soviet influence had been diminishing throughout Eastern Europe; new ruler Mikhail Gorbachev allowed the people to have freedom from the government
: Gorbachev decided that the country needed to be reformed, so he created two programs to help do that; Reagan regained relations with the Soviets, and both wanted to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons; created and signed the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty of 1987
: the Berlin wall came down; Germany was reunited in 1980; Soviet republics passed laws to restrict Soviet policies and withdrew the USSR; the Soviet government was dissolved and a new era began
: economic because of Reagan's plans and what effects they had on the economy
: massive tax cuts, reduced government size, liberated businesses from certain regulations; the economic program was based on supply-side economics to help people keep more of the money they earn
: Congress agreed to the massive tax cuts in income, student loans, job training, and mass transportation development; he also spent more money on national defense rather than exports; the four pillars supporting the policy were to reduce the growth of government spending, federal income tax, capital gains tax, and government regulation
: there was an imbalance in the trading market since the US was importing more than exporting; the nation's debt was growing as well as their budget; the stock market also crashed in 1987 revealing some high profile investors doing illegal business
Event: Reagan Doctrine
: social because it deals with US relations and interventions with foreign countries that are anti-Communist and non-Democratic
: many upheavals in various countries like Afghan, Cuba, Iraq, etc.; US intervention had more bad impacts than good ones
: on Reagan's command, US forces would go and help groups within a country that were against Communism and who were rebels of liberty
: re-unification of Germany; the fall of the Soviet Union
Event: The Nicaragua Revolution of 1979
: social because it had various significant effects on society
: a group named Sandinista rebelled against their corrupt government, and decided to stop elections and receive help from the Soviet Union
: the opposing force known as the Contras were trained and supported by President Reagan
: although Congress banned supporting them, Reagan still helped and provided them with weapons and foreign aid as well as private donations
