3 Consider the US and the USSR Please do not talk at this time March 2Consider the US and the USSRWhy would these two nations become enemies?Why would they decide to divide up the world?How is this decision related to economic systems?Communism Vs. CapitalismIn Communism, all goods are collected from the whole territory (the larger, the more variety in goods) and redistributed to the population. There is NOTHING left over to trade with another country.In Capitalism, trade is the only way to succeed. You MUST compete in the market and sell your goods as often as possible to as many people as possible to be successful.Any Country that is Communist is Lost to the Americans.Any Country that is Capitalist is Lost to the Russians.
4 Cold War Map Assignment: We will be taking graphic notes on this illustrated time line Illustrate the following event on your Cold War Map. Use Chpt. 17, Sec 1 and our class discussion on the Cold War Cartoons to help you.Iron CurtainUsing the map on pg. 532, Draw a line between Eastern and Western Europe to show where the Iron Curtain fell. Include the Line in the Key on the leftAdd the Iron Curtain to your Timeline.Define the Iron Curtain on the back of this paper.
5 Iron Curtain- From a speech by Winston Churchill The Iron Curtain was a symbol to show that Eastern and Western Europe were separated completely. Nothing could get through that imaginary barrier. No People in or out. No ideas in or out. No goods in or out. Russia feared their best, brightest most creative people would leave for a less structured life in the west and that westerners would corrupt the Russians.
6 Strategies of the Cold War The Cold War was not a conventional war. It was a war of Strategies over direct confrontation.Nearly everything that happened in the cold war can be divided into these 6 strategies:Foreign AidPropagandaMultinational AlliancesBrinkmanshipEspionageSurrogate Wars
7 Examples of Foreign Aid and the Cold War Both the USA and the USSR wanted to avoid the kind of economic desperation that had helped Hitler rise to power. They knew they couldn't leave the countries of Europe with all the destruction and poverty left by WWII. They solved this problem by offering financial aid to the nations of Europe, and thus boosted their own economies as well.The Marshal PlanThe Molotov PlanThe Truman DoctrineUS economic support of Batista in CubaRussian Economic Aid to Egypt to build the Aswan DamUS economic support of the Contras in NicaraguaUS economic support of the Shah in Iran
8 Marshall Plan- 1947 “European Recovery Program.” Imagined by Secretary of State, George MarshallThe U. S. should provide aid to all European nations that need it. This move “is not against any country or doctrine, but against hunger, poverty, desperation, and chaos.”$12.5 billion of US aid to Western Europe extended to Eastern Europe & USSR, (but this was rejected).
