President Kennedy inspired Desegregation and the introduction of the Welfare State


Kennedy's programme was named "The New Frontier", it was aimed at reducing poverty. Kennedy introduced the Food Stamp, it would later inspire Johnson's Great Society whose purpose was to reduce poverty. The economic trend he embodied was Keynesianism, which emphasizes that government intervention is necessary to regulate the economy and give relief to the poorest.

He also denounced the unfair Segregationist system in his speech, again it would inspire the Voting Acts of 1965 and 1968 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
