What was Laissez-faire attitude of the American government toward the economy?
It was a hands off policy where big business wanted no government interference in their dealings. This led to the monopolization of many industries. John Rockefeller benefitted from this deal.

I don't think there is a single American attitude towards the Japanese. When I was younger in tyhe 80's, there was a strong fear and distrust of Japan (not unlike what we are …experiencing with China right now). After all, you were beating us in manufacturing, and we were afraid of loosing our place on top of the world economy. Now, after Japan has had a lot of hard economic times, that attitude has largely vanished. In general, I think Americans think of Japanese as clever, industrious, creative (comics, movies, etc.) and and rather mysterious. We think of Japanese culture as exotic ... a culture that somehow blends modernity with ancient traditions. In general, I think the view is very positive now.
I think "Sod you Jack- we're all right" sums it up.

Americans attitudes toward the conflict in Europe
You're gonna have to be more specific than that.
Thomas Jefferson opposed the slave trade and worked to preventslavery. However, Thomas Jefferson owned hundreds of slaves on hisplantations.
Alexander Hamilton was a Federalist. He and his backers were called the "Hamiltonian's" as opposed to Thomas Jefferson's form of government. He and his followers were called t…he "Jeffersonians." -The Hamiltonian's wanted a very strong central government as they admired the English aristocracy and the English system of government and wished to see it used as a model. -Hamiltonian's considered the common people ignorant and incapable of self-government. -Hamiltonian's desired high voting qualifications, claiming that unfettered democracy was anarchy. -Hamiltonian's favored a broad interpretation of the Constitution to strengthen the central government at the expense of of state's rights. -Hamiltonian's wanted an expanding bureaucracy. -Hamiltonian's, under certain circumstances, favored restrictions on speech and the press. .
Laissez-faire pertains as much to government as it does toeconomics. This school of thought states that government shouldplay as minimal a part in private transactions as poss…ible, only asfar as to protect property rights. This means no taxes, orsubsidies, or tariffs, or anything of that sort.
Slavery was outlawed in the US in 1807. Anything after that was considered contraband.
Some would say that this attitude is what brought the U.S., and indeed, the entire world to this current economic crises. As we ate cake, Rome was burning . . . . so to speak.… Whilst everyone was buying their third house, remortgaging, taking out second and third mortgages, flipping houses, setting up credit lines and investing in Real Estate and the Stock Market, the bubble was growing. Simultaneously, the "Derivative Market," thanks in large part to the Real Estate Market, exploded, selling the same crap over-and-over, ad nauseum, until apparently, worldwide, the Derivatives Market sold three or four times the entire worlds GDP. Yes, we ate cake! Rome has burned! Our stomachs now ache and we're hungover from the lust and greed of "things" most of us didn't need, yet most of us so earnestly sought . . . . . Ironically, all this happened not only at the insistence of our Political Leaders, but with their help. You see, most, if not all of what happened would not have been possible were it not for their Legislation, change of Legislation or lack of Legislation. They weren't complicit, they are responsible. Whilst Rome was burning, they got Marshmallow's for roasting and did nothing . . . . but wait for the inevitable. Traitors! And now we have a laissez-faire attitude about what our political leaders did to us and the entire world economy.
they absolutely despised them and wanted their guts for garters, this was because Americans are stupid and don't get that they were there first, even though this is a pretty s…imple and frankly child-like concept the Americans thought they wanted to be like the British ( cause most of them are( Irish)) and take over some land just because they could. even though many good things came to Britain and the countries that were invaded and some even still see the British empire as one of the very best. as Boycie once said, "let's see your cards then Del." this implies that Steinbeck was well educated and was well-endowed into the world of the farms of the american west.
