What is the difference between the Economic Boom and the Roaring Twenties, if any, in the US in 1920?

Or are they both the same thing?

And what exactly is the economic boom? I've found all these long-winded answers but none seem to get straight to the point. Thanks.

    They are very closely related - the economic boom of the 1920s relates to the boom in consumer products - fridges, cars etc The roaring twenties is more to do with social factors - development of Jazz music, women having more independence, cinema etc

    basically the economic boom = more money = more time to have fun = roaring twenties
