If something is true in a single case, it will continue being true if you repeat it millions of times. Your thinking is, to put it very kindly, flawed. It is funny (ironic, actually) that you follow that incredibly ridiculous statement with the mention of "cartoons, crayon drawings, and coloring books." Have you not considered the possibility that the target of all such devices and simplifications might be people like you?

After WWII, most of the economic controls that the government had imposed on the economy relaxed. We went from a de facto command economy back to a market economy. That is what boosted the economy! Not to mention that WWII left American infrastructure and industry relatively untouched, whereas large parts of Europe needed reconstruction. Where do you think that those European countries got much of the materials and machines to rebuild? That's right, you guessed it, from the US of A. During the war, however, the economy improved only in the sense that unemployment went down (because of the need for enormous production of tanks, bullets, ships, and all of the other materials and weapon systems needed in the war). This did not improve the real economy (the standard of living of the average citizen) because even though people were being paid there were not many consumer's goods to buy. (Lots of things were rationed).
