Changes in the Railroad, Maritime, and Streetcar Industries

I don’t understand this Business question and need help to study.

Select one of the following questions to answer in a comprehensive discussion post.

  • In the beginning, railroads were highly regulated, and then in the 20th century, they were deregulated. Explain what caused the change in philosophy, and do you agree or disagree and why?
  • The state of the maritime commercial fleet in the U.S. has changed considerably since 1900. Discuss the reasons for these adjustments and the solution you would provide.
  • Rail transit advocates are convinced that America’s streetcar system was destroyed by a conspiracy, sometimes called the “Great American Street Car Scandal.” In your opinion, is this true? Why or why not?
