MAJOR LITERARY CONTRIBUTIONS The dot-com bubble was the rapid increase in stock speculation in internet-based businesses during the late 90's, which was caused by the modern web browser (www.) which was created in 1993.

The Hubble Telescope, which was designed to take precise images in space while remaining in Earth's orbit, was launched in 1990 and remains in space today. It's pictures have been of great importance for the global scientific community, and its detailed pictures have contributed to the computation of the rate of expansion of the universe, among other things. END OF THE COLD WAR The demise of the Soviet Union began when Mikhail Gorbachev came to power as its General Secretary in 1985. In order to stimulate the country's stagnent economy, he instituted the policies of glasnost (democracy, literally "openness" and perestroika (economic freedom).

This would end up breaking apart the Soviet Union, because as it became a single-party democracy, it practiced non-intervention in its satellite states. Beginning with Poland, many Soviet satelite states had revolutions in 1989, solidifying their independence from the communist state. In 1990, the Soviet Union was no more as Boris Yeltsin became the first Russian president. By the end of 1991, the Soviet Union had split up into 15 republics. NAFTA or the North American Free Trade Agreement (1994) was designed to lower and remove barriers to trade such as tariffs between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Some positives included an overall increase of trade and investment, and an improved economy. Labor also became cheaper, which benefitted big business. However, many Americans who opposed the agreement felt that their wages and jobs were being threatened by Mexican labor. The 90's was a decade of major economic prosperity, as a stock market boom lasted from 1994 to 2000. This was arguably the most economically successful period in United States history and coincided with productivity gains and increased trade throughout the world. However, the extreme rich-poor gap which became visible in the late 70's continued to grow in this period. 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics Largest Olympics
