If I could choose any decade to experience in the 20th century, I would pick the 1950’s. The reason being it was a time of prosperity and economic stability. Finding a well-paying job was a whole lot easier during this time period than most other decades. With that being said, the 50’s were not perfect. On an economic scale, the 50’s were booming. However, not so much in the political and cultural departments. Racial equality and gender stereotypes are a couple examples of the downside of the 1950’s.
