The Postwar Boom

Federal Communications Commission

In 1956, U.S. created a government agency (FCC) that regulates and licenses TV, phone, telegraph, radio, and other communications all across the country. They allowed 500 new radio stations to broadcast. The invention of microwave relays caused the US to have to regulate the sudden burst in the TV industry. This government is around yet, and continues to regulate all of U.S. citizen's TV entertainment.

Termination Policy

In 1953, the federal government announced that it would be giving up its responsibility for Native American Tribes in the United States. This approach is called the termination policy. This was a failure, because Native Americans were unable to get jobs to to prejudice. In 1963, this policy was abandoned.
