In GCSE History students will look at the history of the USA between 1840 and 1975. One period studied is the 1920s, and this is the second of three quizzes on that era. It concentrates on the apparently booming American economy of the time.
The American economy seemed to be booming during the 1920s, but the appearance was deceptive. Half of all American citizens did not share in the general prosperity, and the half who did enjoyed a fragile wealth.
Was the USA's economy really booming in the 1920s? Play this quiz and decide for yourself.
