The Great Depression was an important event for the USA and the World. In Europe, the Great Depression led to Hitler and the Nazi party and WWII. In the USA, the Great Depression led to FDR and a change in the way the American people regard their government and the way the American government treats the American people.
Herbert Hoover was president from 1928 to 1932 and is generally blamed for the Depression, but the economic and social problems that led to the collapse of the stock market in October 1929 were fermenting during the presidencies of Harding and Coolidge. Generally speaking, Hoover was unfairly blamed for the depression.
There was the threat of the spread of Communism in America. Along with this threat, the Great Depression occurred in the early 30s crippling the world's economy. During the thirties, totalitarian leaders started to gain power, because they claimed to be for the people. Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin were all gaining political power in the thirties. These political conditions led to WWII.
