During a time of war the whole country has to change for better and worse.

After the war the country has to go back to a pre-war economy which will lead to a loss in the economy because war provides many jobs for people. This helped to lead to the depression because other countries had also lost money in the war and wanted Germany to pay their debt but Germany didn't have any money and the U.S.A. didn't want Germany taken over by England so they loaned Germany money to pay Europe and to pay back the U.S.A..
