Summary The Gilded age was characterized by prosperity and industrialization that thinly diguised blatant corruption in politics and business. Explores the enormous social and cultural changes of the 1920s, an era of prosperity, rapid industrialization, social experimentation, and artistic renaissance. The Progressive era altered the course of our history through the strengthening of labor unions, political reforms, and the imposition of the first federal income tax. Enormous social and cultural changes took place in the 1920s, an era of prosperity, rapid industrialization, social experimentation, and artistic renaissance. Many factors led to the Great Depression, Hoover's attempts to counter the nation's economic woes, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal programs.
