    They helped to prevent the spread of communism

      I agree with you all ! The impact of the Containment Doctrine , The Truman Doctrine , and The Marshall plan had in the late 1940’s was that it impacted Americans values today as an output of the cold world and communism . They did everything they could to stop communism from spreading ! Going through communism left a huge impact on Americans society and something that we look forward to not having to go through again .

      • Zoe Zelman March 6, 2014 at 12:33 AM #

        I agree. The Truman Doctrine also won bipartisan support and mobilized American economic power against “hunger, poverty, desperation, and chaos” to help unstable regions without using military intervention. Besides Truman’s claim that Greece and Turkey would fall to communism, it was an important move for the U.S. to be able to use the area if a war happened.

        I think it’s good for our country to not be communist but I believe there should be a balance between communism and capitalism because they both have good things that countries may want to follow. It’s important for society to have equality among everyone, but it is also necessary to reward the people who work harder than other.

    • Martin Rueda March 21, 2014 at 5:44 PM #

      I agree with you this did help us not fall in to a communist county && that’s what we were all scared about.

  2. Leticia February 14, 2014 at 7:17 PM #

    They helped to prevent the spread of communism & extended the Western Hemisphere policy.

    • Ahjon White February 15, 2014 at 9:13 AM #

      Your right because communism took a big role back in the 1940s.

  3. Ahjon White February 15, 2014 at 9:12 AM #

    They impacted in many ways like there was always a something going on like the containment and Truman Doctrine which basically made things even worse.

    • Godess Smith February 19, 2014 at 1:48 PM #

      In which ways did it impact and what other things were going on?

  4. Rocio A. February 18, 2014 at 12:23 AM #

    The impact was to end the communist threats, aiding Turkey and Greece, and to insure that America would hold the leading role in world affairs.

    • Mogtaba S. February 18, 2014 at 9:35 PM #

      I agree with you because America was afraid of the spread of communism and didn’t want other countries to fall to communism.

    • Shekirah Marzett February 20, 2014 at 6:52 AM #

      One of Marshalls goal was to obtain internal financial stability which would also offer to help all European Countries !

      • Daijah Morris February 20, 2014 at 8:51 PM #

        I agree with you because the marshall plan gave about $13 billion in grants which started in 1948 to help the Western European nations.

  5. Mogtaba S. February 18, 2014 at 9:43 PM #

    America didn’t want communism to spread into the Western Hemisphere. The Marshall Plan, Truman Doctrine, and Containment Doctrine were all in a way were set up to weaken communism and the communist party.

    • Juan R. February 19, 2014 at 1:46 AM #

      All 3 doctrines were set up in place so that Communism would not spread to America and other parts of the world. You could only have one. Capitalism or communism.

      • Anonymous February 21, 2014 at 3:08 AM #

        That was a great answer

      • Ray.W March 6, 2014 at 2:16 AM #

        good answer

    • Juan R. February 19, 2014 at 1:47 AM #

      I agree with you.

    • Yudania-Marie Lattimore February 19, 2014 at 11:44 PM #

      I completely agree. The 3 doctrines definitely “weaken” the spread of communism. America was very nervous about it spreading throughout the Western Hemisphere. Great job 🙂

      • Taylor Vaughn February 20, 2014 at 2:29 AM #

        I wasn’t aware that it was spreading through out the Western Hemisphere! Thanks for the info!

    • Clancy S March 4, 2014 at 7:10 PM #

      These doctrines were made in fear as well. The hope was to weaken the idea of communism, however communism’s popularity was way overlooked. I think after the second red scare is when communism became the most feared but over time the fear subsided and the cold war ended.

      • Joshua Wirght March 6, 2014 at 5:55 PM #

        I completely agree with you. The U.S. absolutely feared communism and that fear caused the actions taken by the U.S.

    • Alejandro h March 6, 2014 at 4:59 AM #

      America didn’t want communism to spread in any place of the world

    • Juan R. March 6, 2014 at 6:30 PM #

      i agree with you. america would do any thing to stop the spread of communims and did just that.

  6. Godess Smith February 19, 2014 at 1:46 PM #

    The Containment Doctrine, the Truman doctrine, and the Marshall plan had a big impact on the late 1940s. The impact was big because that period of time was all about getting everyone to convert to communist. But, those doctrines and that plan were created to help get everyone against communist.

    • Ryan Swan March 4, 2014 at 3:26 AM #

      i don’t think that the goals of the policies were to get every one against communism, i feel like the US was just trying to stop the spread of comunism.

  7. Yudania-Marie Lattimore February 19, 2014 at 11:41 PM #

    The Containment Doctrine, Truman Doctrine, and Marshall Doctrine had a huge impact in the late 1940’s because they all pushed toward avoiding communism and extended the western hemisphere. During the 1940’s the thought of the spread of communism scared people and so these doctrines helped us avoid converting to communist, which was for the best.

    • Clancy S February 22, 2014 at 5:58 AM #

      A tad bit long but well written.

    • Rocio A. March 6, 2014 at 4:13 PM #

      I agree with you and it is a tad long but has a lot of information! and i agree with the people being scared of communism, from what I’ve learned they thought that communism was going to take away some of their fundamental rights.

  8. Taylor Vaughn February 20, 2014 at 2:27 AM #

    The impact was to end communism. America was scared to even mention communism in fear that I might happen since it was going on in China at the time. The impact was to basically secure safety in a way to keep communism out.

  9. Zoe Z. February 20, 2014 at 5:55 AM #

    They all prevented communism in the United States.

    • Aaryonna Jones March 5, 2014 at 11:53 PM #

      They wanted to prevent communism not only in the U.S, but in other countries to, including; Greece, Turkey, Eastern Europe, Korea and China!

  10. Daijah Morris February 20, 2014 at 8:48 PM #

    The Marshall plan gave about 13 billion in grants and loans to Western European nations. Truman Doctrine was to get money to help turkey and greece fight communism. The containment was to use american power to help nations resist communism. All in all, all of these doctrines were to stop communism and to help Europe build back up.

    • Maria Sanchez March 4, 2014 at 6:47 PM #

      I agree.You made very good points.The doctrines were made to stop communism, and help Europe.

      • Brandy B March 6, 2014 at 9:22 PM #

        I agree.Doctrines were to stop communism and help Europe build back up.

  11. Eunice Yeboah February 20, 2014 at 8:50 PM #

    The impact that the containment doctrine,Truman doctrine and Marshall plan had in the 1940’s was to prevent countries from from falling into the hands of the Soviet Union in order not to become a communist country.

  12. Anonymous February 21, 2014 at 3:07 AM #

    They were all made for a purpose and the purpose was to stop other countries from becoming communists. There inpact was that they stoped countries from be coming a communist country like the Soviet Union

  13. Clancy S February 22, 2014 at 5:56 AM #

    All of these philosophies if you will believed that Americans would be afflicted by the spread of communism, this caused a peace between Greece and turkey and ultimately led to covert missions between U.S. and Russia

    • Larissa Fernandez March 5, 2014 at 3:14 AM #

      I though there was a war between Greece and Turkey…? The Truman Foreign Policy or Truman Doctrine involves a war between these to countries, not peace. At least that’s what I have in my notes…

    • Daliyah H March 6, 2014 at 7:43 AM #

      Being afflicted by the spread of Communism was something the US really fear!

  14. Ryan Swan March 4, 2014 at 3:22 AM #

    all these plans to me were polices made because the us was scared of communist and did not want it to spread. if communism was to spread the US felt like the government would be over thrown. the thought of communism spreading was the US was the US’s biggest fear. so we made the containment doctrine so communist would stay in the current countries and stop the spread of communism. the containment doctrine had the biggest impact on the Cold War. i felt like the other two was to help recover after WW1

    • Elycia Torrez March 4, 2014 at 7:07 PM #

      Yea dude, I totally agree like America is supposed to be “Land of the free” like communism is a way to conform everyone to be the same with out too much say from the government. It’s just another way to stay in control.

  15. Maria Sanchez March 4, 2014 at 6:43 PM #

    Like it was said before,it was to help prevent the spread of communism,which was the fear of the US.That caused the US to send help,and make those plans.

  16. Elycia Torrez March 4, 2014 at 7:01 PM #

    Americans didn’t want communism in the west. The Marshall Plan, Truman Doctrine, and Containment Doctrine were used to weaken communism and the communist party.

  17. Larissa Fernandez March 5, 2014 at 3:10 AM #

    The Truman Doctrine, Containment Doctrine, and The Marshall Plan were obviously to prevent the spread of communism. But it also extended the Western Hemisphere Policy. The Truman Doctrine did involve a war between Turkey and Greece. Their goals was to increase population and obtain internal financial stability, but the Marshall Plan ended up causing an economic decline in the US.

    • Desmond H. March 6, 2014 at 3:10 PM #

      Great response, I forgot it also changed America’s foreign policy. But I also thought the Marshall plan only caused a slight dip in the U.S economy.

  18. Aaryonna Jones March 5, 2014 at 11:47 PM #

    The Containment Doctrine, including the Truman Doctrine and Marshall Plan had an impact in the late 1940’s by trying to prevent communism from spreading along other countries. Its main focus was to help people see communist/communism, and overthrow it. America was already terrified of communism, and didn’t want to continue seeing it spread, that’s why Pres. Truman came up with the Truman Doctrine. The Truman Doctrine said that America would help Greece and Turkey with economic and military aid to help them from falling into the Soviet’s trap. The Containment Doctrine was made up by United States. The policy was to prevent the spread of communism nationally.

  19. Zoe Zelman March 6, 2014 at 1:41 AM #

    The United Nations was formed. The United States and Allies had a conference in 1944 and created the World Bank to stimulate development in third world countries and created an International Monetary Fund to regulate exchange rates. The State of Israel was created in 1948 to keep communism out of that area. George Marshall, Truman’s Secretary of State said that the U.S. would give $10 million to rebuild Western Europe, to stabilize it financially, and prevent economic collapse. MacArthur promised military protection for Japan if they would not make weapons. United States, Britain, and France were occupying Western Germany which became independent. The Soviets continued to occupy Eastern Germany. The USSR created the iron curtain that separated East Germany, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Belarus, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania from the West. Because of many of the policies that were made and money that was given by the America and its Allies, the economy of the nations that were helped got better and communism was kept out of those places.

  20. Ray.W March 6, 2014 at 2:13 AM #

    They were against communism!!

  21. Alejandro h March 6, 2014 at 4:55 AM #

    The impacts that the containment doctorine, Truman doctorine, and the marshal plan wasn’t as big as it was intended to be. All of them were intended to stop the spead of communism. The containment doctorine failed, the Truman doctorine stopped awar and gave us two allies, the marshal plan was ended early because of the Korean War but it did help Europe surpass pre-war levels.

  22. Daliyah H March 6, 2014 at 7:38 AM #

    They helped to prevent the spread of communism. America did not want Communism to spread in the Western Hemisphere and the US felt like the government would be over thrown that was the US biggest fear. Marshall Plan, Truman Doctrine, and Containment Doctrine were all in a way to weaken the communist party and help Europe.

  23. Desmond H. March 6, 2014 at 3:07 PM #

    America was a afraid a ‘Domino effect’ would occur. They thought once one country turned communism all of them would and the U.S would be the only capitalist country. The Containment Doctrine, the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan all helped to prevent the spread of communism. The United States wanted to do anything it could to stop the spread of communism. For example the Marshall Plan let the U.S offer financial support to all countries affected by the war. This would in turn help those countries not become communist.

    • Vanessa W March 7, 2014 at 9:07 PM #

      I agree with what you said because the whole point of these plans was to stop communism from spreading and for the U.S to help these countries.

  24. Joshua Wirght March 6, 2014 at 5:52 PM #

    I don’t think the containment doctrine, the Truman doctrine, and the Marshall plan had much of an impact in the late 1940’s. They didn’t have much of an impact because of the domino theory, which was false. The U.S. took unnecessary, but it was all because they were paranoid of communism.

    • Nicholas Horton March 6, 2014 at 6:24 PM #

      They had a somewhat effect because it created foreign intervention today and that might not have happened without these documents.

  25. Katia solano March 6, 2014 at 6:09 PM #

    They wanted to prevent communism in the United States and help other countries to get rid of communism as well.
    One of the impacts they have today is the approach of foreign intervention.

  26. Katia solano March 6, 2014 at 6:16 PM #

    The U.S supported Greece and Turkey in order for them to prevent communism.

  27. Nicholas Horton March 6, 2014 at 6:22 PM #

    America was afraid of communism. They created the documents to help prevent communism. They believed in the domino theory that if one succeeded in becoming full communist, others would follow. The theory however did not come true.

    • Chinau' March 6, 2014 at 6:27 PM #

      I agree with everything that you are saying, but I dont think that this statement fully answers the question.

  28. Chinau' March 6, 2014 at 6:26 PM #

    The impact that they had was that they changed life in the US and it gave countries around the world a different perspective of the US.

  29. Brandy B March 6, 2014 at 9:14 PM #

    The Marshall plan gave about 13 billion in grants and loans to Western European nations. Truman Doctrine was to get money to help turkey and greece fight communism. The containment was to use american power to help nations resist communism. All in all, all of these doctrines were to stop communism and to help Europe build back up.

  30. Vanessa W March 7, 2014 at 9:05 PM #

    The Truman Doctrine is when President Truman gave $00 million dollars for military and economic help for Greece and Turkey. The Marshall Plan was also to help out the European country in financial aid to help the economy recover. The Containment Doctrine was to prevent communism and also to help support Europe. All three of these plans was to stop all communist threats being made to these countries.

    • Vanessa W March 7, 2014 at 9:05 PM #

      $400 million

  31. Martin Rueda March 21, 2014 at 5:42 PM #

    It helped us not fall in to communist this is better because like most american we want what we work for and a communist county every one has the same witch is better not to be communist.

    • Nicholas Horton May 29, 2014 at 4:31 PM #

      I agree on that because communism is total control. There’s no freedom and that’s what the United states is about.

  32. Anonymous May 29, 2014 at 4:29 PM #

    The Marshall Plan and the Truman Doctrine of Containment together defined the structure of the emerging Cold War between America and the Soviet Union. These plans were set to stop the spread of the Soviet union.

    Globalization: We’re connected
    Jennifer Machado
    Jan. 09, 2015
    Globalization has made a good impact in the way we communicate. It’s the way different countries around the world communicate for business, trades, and other political issues. But it is also the fact that we export goods and get imports from other countries. It’s good that we have globalization because most of the supplies that we have are made in different countries. If we were to make the things that are made in other countries we would be paying double the price. It has been extremely helpful that other countries make things for us because we make a profit and have less economic problems. We are all connected in some sort of way in this world so globalization is very important at this time. We have been able to keep our country stable.
    The idea of globalization has really improved in the way we see things. With the latest updates on technologies. But not all countries have these. Our world has changed since we laid hands on these technologies you can learn about cultures you have never learned before. All these phones, laptops and ipods are big money makers. Every year we are coming up with different ideas for example new clothes, phones, etc. Meaning there’ll be more jobs for other people in countries where they make them. The people there get a job and make money, but then so does the store, or company that sells these things. Selling things, buying stocks and having some sort of business online helps our economy. Therefore our economy doesn’t fall and unemployment rate doesn’t go too high.
