Transcript of 90s Presentation
Compared to the current decade, the 90's decade shows just how far we've advanced our intelligence of technology, as well as how the music choices, clothing styles and fads and how people kept up with the news (through the use of technology) have altered.

Grunge fashion became less popular by the mid-1990s, because the economy improved and dressing cheaply was no longer needed.
some elements of grunge have never really gone away, and the style has been adapted into things like "neo grunge" and "glunge"

In the 90`s there was plenty of growth in between cultures, the economy, the internet, and the trades.
Identity in the 90s: News and Culture
They read magazines, print/newspaper and watched TV it was either live or pre-recorded depending on the story. Since the creation of the internet there was more communication around the world. The world was becoming more multicultural and there was more acceptance for culture and more diversity. As the people got together a lot of slang were used, such words as: my bad, word, and phat.
The Usage of the Internet in the 90s
Since the creation of the internet, in the 1960’s, the internet was not used very much but in 1993 there was an exponential growth in the use of the internet because of the growing companies. They companies used the internet to communicate with others to get work done.
The WTO in the 90s
WTO is short for World Trade Organization. In the 1990’s the WTO watched the Trade Facilitation (government controlled trading) because of the decrease of the tariff(the tax on importing and exporting goods). The trade flow also increased which helped make everything more globally connected. Being globally connected with developing countries they helped produce networks for them.
TNCs in the 90s
In the 90’s there were some TNCs’ there that are still here today such as Wal-Mart, and Mcdonald's. We see these TNCs’ almost everyday because they are everywhere. These two TNCs’ have expanded all around the world. Both Walmart and McDonalds have put new stores all over the world. The people of that particular country can experience how we live and they can see our worldview.
Transportation of Goods in the 90s
In the 90’s they used most of the same transportation of goods that we did. Such as the cargo ship, airplane, and the train. They shipped large amounts of oil to other countries and it was a very good century for the oil companies. They also shipped clothes, toys, and oil overseas.
Economy in the 90s
The 90`s were good because they was an increase of jobs, stock markets, and productivity. In the U.S.A. they tried to make a Bull Market(shares with rising prices, which encourages buying) for the oil because there was a great amount of people buying oil. There was an increase in oil prices so they had to increase the taxes. In 1994 the U.S. GDP grew and there was an increase in jobs. The 90`s was a good century for oil and economic growth.
The internet and had a great influence on the world and the upcoming century, how we use technology, and communicate. The trade around the world helped us interconnect with each other and now we are more multicultural. The economy put us where we are today, with jobs being made everyday, and how we buy things and spend money.
