Professor's Classroom

A new week, a new year and a new quiz. It does not get any better than this. I love my job!

This week's quiz is:

Which President's plan was called "New nationalism" and what were the planks within this platform?

Good luck and good googling! You may begin.

New Nationalism was Theodore Roosevelt's Progressive political philosophy during the 1912 election. He made the case for what he called the New Nationalism in a speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, in August 1910. The central issue, he argued, was human welfare versus property rights.

He wanted executive agencies (not the courts) to regulate business. The federal government should be used to protect the laboring man, women and children from what he believed to be exploitation. In terms of policy, the New Nationalism supported child labor laws and a minimum wage laws for women.
