Stag November 1980



The Reichstag (German: Reichstag, pronounced [ˈʁaɪçsˌtaːk] (listen); officially: Plenarbereich Reichstagsgebäude [ˈʁaɪçstaːksɡəˌbɔʏdə] (listen); English: Parliament) is a historic government building on Platz der Republik in Berlin that has been the seat of the German Bundestag since 1999. Since 1994, the Federal Convention has also met here to elect the Federal President.


The Neo-Renaissance building was built between 1884 and 1894 in the Tiergarten district on the left bank of the River Spree to plans by the architect Paul Wallot. It housed both the Reichstag of the German Empire and the Reichstag of the Weimar Republic. Initially, the Reich's Federal Council also met there. After severe damage in the Reichstag fire of 1933 and during the Second World War, the building was modernised and restored in the 1960s and used for exhibitions and special events. From 1995 to 1999, the Reichstag was fundamentally redesigned by Norman Foster for its permanent use as a parliament building, which was decided in 1991. The keys were handed over to the President of the Bundestag, Wolfgang Thierse, on 19 April 1999. The Bundestag has been meeting there ever since. A landmark of the city is the walk-in glass dome above the plenary chamber, designed by Gottfried Böhm.


The term Reichstag, when used to connote a diet, dates back to the Holy Roman Empire. The building was built for the Diet of the German Empire, which was succeeded by the Reichstag of the Weimar Republic. The latter would become the Reichstag of Nazi Germany, which left the building (and ceased to act as a parliament) after the 1933 fire and never returned, using the Kroll Opera House instead; the term Reichstag has not been used by German parliaments since World War II. In today's usage, the word Reichstag (Imperial Diet) refers mainly to the building, while Bundestag (Federal Diet) refers to the institution.


The artistic and practical value of his work was the subject of much debate after German reunification. Under the 1971 Four Power Agreement on Berlin, Berlin was formally outside the bounds of either East or West Germany, and so the West German parliament, the Bundestag, was not allowed to assemble formally in West Berlin. This prohibition was obeyed even though East Germany had declared East Berlin its capital, violating this provision. Until 1990, the building was thus used only for occasional representative meetings, and one-off events, such as a free concert given by British rock band Barclay James Harvest on 30 August 1980.[10] It was also used for a widely lauded permanent exhibition about German history called Fragen an die deutsche Geschichte ("Questions on German history").


The official German reunification ceremony on 3 October 1990, was held at the Reichstag building, including Chancellor Helmut Kohl, President Richard von Weizsäcker, former Chancellor Willy Brandt and many others. The event included huge firework displays. The following day the parliament of the united Germany assembled as a symbolic act in the Reichstag building.[citation needed]


Before reconstruction began, the Reichstag was wrapped by the Bulgarian-American artists Christo and his wife Jeanne-Claude in 1995, attracting millions of visitors.[11] The project was financed by the artists through the sale of preparatory drawings and collages, as well as early works of the 1950s and 1960s.[citation needed]


Reconstruction was completed in 1999, with the Bundestag convening there officially for the first time on 19 April of that year.[12] The Reichstag is now the second most visited attraction in Germany, not least because of the huge glass dome that was erected on the roof as a gesture to the original 1894 cupola, giving an impressive view over the city, especially at night.[citation needed]


The large glass dome at the very top of the Reichstag has a 360-degree view of the surrounding Berlin cityscape. The main hall (debating chamber) of the parliament below can also be seen from inside the dome, and natural light from above radiates down to the parliament floor. A large sun shield tracks the movement of the sun electronically and blocks direct sunlight which would not only cause large solar gain, but dazzle those below. Construction work was finished in 1999 and the seat of parliament was transferred to the Bundestag in April of that year. The dome is open to visitors by prior registration.[13]


''I felt as though I had stumbled into a stag club and ought to leap out of a cake,'' she said. ''Creativity is not the exclusive province of this very narrow slice of society.''


Named for Ronald Wilson Reagan, she was the first US aircraft carrier named for a living person. Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States of America, died on June 5, 2004. In November 1980 when President Reagan was elected, the Soviets were in Afghanistan, the Hostages were captive in Iran and the United States economy was suffering from the ravages of stag-flation. As the 1980s progressed, the economy revived providing the strength to rebuild the US Navy and military, from its post-Viet Nam malaise, and eventually bring about the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Cold War threat. Revival of the US military and power in the 1980s provided the infrastructure to oust Saddam Husseins Iraqi Army from Kuwait in 1991.


In 2022, weak growth and elevated inflation mimicked the economic stagflation of the 1970s.As in the 1970s, an era that ended with a global recession and a series of financial crises, the economists and policymakers of 2022 battled with the consequences of rapidly tightening financing. During the 2020 global recession, global growth collapsed but rebounded to 5.7 percent in 2021 due to fiscal and monetary policy accommodation. However, growth is expected to slow through 2024 because of the war in Ukraine, the easing of demand, and the withdrawal of policy support amid high inflation."}},"@type": "Question","name": "What Steps Did Fed Chair Paul Volcker Take to Curb Inflation?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Volcker switched the Fed policy from targeting interest rates to targeting the money supply.
