A primary reason the United States became a great economic power was the industriousness of its people. Most Americans believed that hard work and profits provided a righteous and worthwhile life. The American vision involved not only economic betterment but also a willingness to work toward that more prosperous future. The factors that produced a strong work ethic and the conditions that led to this decline are examined and analyzed. The lethargy of poor Americans and the lack of the drive to improve their situations are likewise investigated. Another factor explored is the rise of other nations' awareness of the work ethic and the importance of its being developed.
