What were the causes of economic prosperity in the 1920s?

Answer

There were several causes to the economic prosperity in the 1920's. The period known as the 'Roaring Twenties' was prosperous due to the fact that more people were buying goods made in America. The automobile business was booming, as well as the construction business. This was in part due to tariffs that were placed on European goods, that made foreign goods more expensive to buy.
