  1. 1990s

    The 1990s, pronounced and also known as "the Nineteen-Nineties" or abbreviated as "the Nineties" or "the '90s", was a decade that began on January 1, 1990, and ended on December 31, 1999. It was the 10th and last decade of the 20th century and the 100th and last decade of the 2nd millennium. More people were born in the 1990s than in any decade in history. Culturally speaking the decade was characterized by the rise of multiculturalism and alternative media. Movements such as grunge, the rave scene and hip hop spread around the world to young people during the decade, aided by then-new technology such as cable television and the Internet. A combination of factors, including the mass mobilization of capital markets through neoliberalism, the beginning of the widespread proliferation of new media such as the Internet, and the dissolution of the Soviet Union led to a realignment and reconsolidation of economic and political power across the world, and within countries. Income inequality among countries in the world rose sharply between the 1980s and the mid-1990s, before levelling off and then falling after 2000. New ethnic conflicts emerged in Africa, the Balkans and the Caucasus, the former two which led to the Rwandan genocide and Bosnian genocide, respectively. Signs of any resolution of tensions between Israel and the Arab world remained elusive, though the Irish Troubles came to a standstill in 1998 with the Good Friday Agreement after 30 years of violence.
