Many of these projects would become especially important with the “Baby Boom” that occurred after WWII. However, despite all of these setbacks, America remained seemingly well prepared for the war that would quickly grip the globe. Manufacturers were still prepared to produce war and military goods and the unemployed quickly jumped at the opportunity to either enlist or grab the jobs of those drafted into service. During the war, the American economy changed drastically, as did many around the globe such as Great Britain and France to aid the war effort. War Administration took over, which meant that the government began controlling what manufactures produced, how much of it, where it went, etc. These policies often meant only producing materials and supplies for the war effort. Other consumer goods were rarely produced during this time. Even with this, American mobilization was much less centralized than other war nations. Countries such as Britain had large councils that meticulously oversaw every part of the economy. Germany was the worst and shot people who were hoarding goods such as rubber or other supplies that could benefit their troops. America, on the other hand, never appointed a supreme council to oversee civilians or directly control the economy. Most of the regulation was done by already established legislatures that had been elected prior to the war. However, military services could still take whatever they desired from the manufacturers as long as it was for the war effort. This wartime economy would have large impacts on the returning soldiers and civilians following the war. These effects were most felt perhaps in the South, which had begun to industrialize to help support the troops and produce more goods for use overseas. Due to these changes in the way of life and the economy, standards of living began to change as well. These changes were partly due to the price controls set on the market by the federal government. Most of these controls were set to control inflation and maintain prices at the levels they were at in 1942. Acts by the National War Labor Board that limited wartime wage increases by around 15% helped curtail inflation and stop the cost of living from skyrocketing. This led to inflation staying steady around 3.5% between 1942 and 1946 compared to the 10.3% in the sixth months prior to April 1942. However, during this war wages still rose on average around 65% which meant most American civilians enjoyed a higher standard of living than pre-war times. However, as the average standard of living rose, other areas such as the rural south faced tougher economic times. As their crops’ prices were strictly controlled by the government the marginal farmers who could barely turn a profit were forced out of business and forced into lower wa>GET ANSWER
