The us economy goes beyond this though, it is the foundation for the world economy in the 20th and 21st centuries, and this influence isn’t caused by something so old fashioned as empire, but rather industry. Today US companies can be seen dominating industries in economies all over the world, and at the same time foreign companies from Europe and asia fight endlessly to break into the US market, the largest and most influential consumer market in the world.
The US economy is too large with too many facets to explore in a single video, so this will be made as a video series but for now in this video I want to explore how the United States of America got to where it is today
