The end of the second world war marked the beginning of many changes in world economies, politics, and governance. The United States (US) played a pivotal role in rebuilding many nations globally and reducing the influence of the Soviet Union. The impact of the US spread across different continents, more specifically, in Europe and Japan. The sphere of influence advanced into the liberal international order prompting many global international cooperation changes and contributing to the beginning of the cold war.
