Have you ever wondered why America is considered a superpower? No? Then you have come to the right place.
America has the strongest economy in the world. Their defence budget is more than 600 billion which is 37% of the money spent on defence in the world. They are the richest country in the world and thats why they can afford better and stronger defences, missiles, etc. The rest of the countries are not poor but they are far behind America. America wasn’t always like this. As a matter of a fact, in the early days it used to be at the bottom of the charts, when in 1920 it took a massive strike and became the richest country in the world. They could do it all because they created lots of factories, hire loads of people and invested in construction. Many countries import things made in America. This is how it all happened.
Post world war II, a lot of countries were very weak and poor. They did not have the money to support their military. America got into agreement with those countries and vowed to protect them. In order to protect so many countries, they needed lots of weapons. To craft the weapons America created lots of arms factories. They hired people in those factories and got richer. America become so powerful due to its pile of weapons that the entire world started considering it a superpower.
But America wanted to be better, it wanted to be better than the best. The money from arms was used to advertise other products throughout the world. People started buying their products as they thought that their products would be as amazing as their reputation as a super power. Soon the products became very popular across the world and everyone wanted to own them. This led to massive exports of their products giving them more money.
Soon people heard so much about America they would want to visit it. Thats when America started making entertainment centers and the shops and started selling souvenirs for the tourists at the tourist destinations. They made loads of places where the tourist could have a great time, for example waterparks and also Disney Land. Soon America had the richest economy in the world!
Thats how America became the richest and most powerful country in the world!
