What were the major progressive accomplishments of Wilson's presidency?
My answer: The major accomplishments of Wilson's presidency were the passing of the Clayton Antitrust Act, which laid down rules forbidding business practices that lessened competition and gave the government more power to regulate trusts, as well as the passing of the Federal Reserve Act. It improved the nation's monetary and banking systems, creating the modern banking system and a more flexible currency by allowing banks to control money supply.
You could also add the graduated income tax and prohibition of child labor.
Should I include the final sentence? The next question in my textbook asks what the Federal Reserve Act did. It sounds as though I am including the answer to the other question along with this one.
I agree. Save your last sentence to answer the next question.
Would my final sentence be adequate enough as an answer to the next question?
