For a long time, the American economy was war-oriented; this means that the economic growth of the United States originates from maintaining a war footing. After each of the big wars the United States were involved in, their economy experienced dramatic growth, paired with industrial, technological, and diplomatic progress. In case of the World War I, the United States had a massive increase in industrial production along with stable and reasonable prices for various goods.
