List the factors that led to political stalemate and the subsquent farmers revolt in the late 19th century? Granger Laws Tenancy Populist party Sharecropping Overproduction of crops Falling prices The crisis of 1890’s Write a 100- to 150-word response addressing the relationship between the issues the political system dealt with in the Gilded Age and current American political issues. Are they similar or different? Why? There were many issues in the gilded age. The country faced a period of greed, corruption, and industrial competition (Davidson et al., 2006). The monopolies that the nation dealt with also brought wealth and philanthropy. Exploitation of workers also led to unions that support them. The corruption in politics also led to reforms to restore democracy (Shmoop Univeristy, Inc. 2011).

Unformatted text preview: We are now living in our own gilded age. National wealth has grown as well as the opportunity for successful entrepreneurs to achieve wealth. This has lead to technological and cultural advancement. The middle and lower class workers pretty much have stayed middle and lower class. This day in age is very similar to the gilded age of the late 19 th century. We face some of the same problems that they did. Our government is filled with corruption. We have many extremely wealthy people that come close to having monopolies like Bill Gates. References Davidson, J., Gienapp, W., Heyrman, C., Lytle, M., & Stoff, M. (2006).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
