Chapter 28: The Consumer Society 1945-1960 Dwight Eisenhower was now the president (Election of 1952) Nikita Khrushchev and Richard Nixon had a kitchen debate, where they argued and had a clash between communism and capitalism. Baby Boom & Mass Consumption Couples were having babies nonstop because couples were marrying earlier, a procreation ethic was formed, modern science reconfirmed any fears, and a general spirit of confidence about the future. The GI bill was passed, which pumped millions of dollars into the economy by providing veterans with compensation, loans, and tuition reimbursements The Rise of the Suburbs Americans looked to suburbs to provide additional space needed for their growing families.

The Changing World of Work A small amount of companies were accounted for more than half of total corporate income.
