The Truman Doctrine was a promise passed by president Truman that stated that the United States would help countries battling communism. The Marshall Plan promised to help western European countries rebuild after WWII. 

USSR did not agree with either of these promises. Because the Soviet Union was a communist country, it disagreed with the Truman Doctrine's idea of battling communism. USSR also wanted western European countries to remain weak after the war so that the Soviet Union could easily influence these countries. The Marshall Plan halted the USSR's hopes of this happening.

Read the following excerpt from an essay by Stephen Leacock. What is the main idea? A friend of mine who has ten thousand dollars a year told me the other day with a sigh that he found it quite impossible to keep up with the rich. On his income he couldn't do it. A family that I know who have twenty thousand a year have told me the same thing. They can't keep up with the rich. There is no use in trying. A man that I respect very much who has an income of fifty thousand dollars a year from his law practice has told me with the greatest frankness that he finds it absolutely impossible to keep up with the rich. He says it is better to face the brutal fact of being poor. He says he can only give me a plain meal, what he calls a home dinner—it takes three men and two women to serve it—and he begs me to put up with it. As far as I remember, I have never met Mr. Carnegie. But I know that if I did he would tell me that he found it quite impossible to keep up with Mr. Rockefeller. No doubt Mr. Rockefeller has the same feeling. On the other hand there are, and there must be, rich people somewhere. I run across traces of them all the time. The janitor in the building where I work has told me that he has a rich cousin in England who is in the South-Western Railway and gets ten pounds a week. He says the railway wouldn't know what to do without him. In the same way the lady who washes at my house has a rich uncle. He lives in Winnipeg and owns his own house, clear, and has two girls at the high school. 1.Money means nothing to the rich. 2.Most rich people are very modest. 3.Most rich people live abroad. 4.The rich are never satisfied with their wealth. 5.The writer hasn’t met any really rich people.
