Abstract

With the end of the settlement of what became the continental United States, capitalism and imperialism by nature needed to continue in their growth. In the late 19th and early 20th century up through World War I, history and the time of laborers were the sites of expansion for capitalism. There was a realization that public relations and journalism were in essence writing history as it was happening, and capitalists took note and moved into adjusting these spheres in their favor. In addition, capitalists began attempting to expand their influence over the time of their laborers in order to increase production and the growth of capital.
