While the middle class saw many of their numbers ruined financially, the very rich suffered little more than a loss in paper wealth and not poverty. Still, the monied class was stunned by the Depression. The rich feared FDR more than the Depression. By 1936 "That man in the White House" was being called a traitor to his class. By 1937, most of the wealthy were living comfortably again. Stock prices had started going up… Read More

A record 12.9 million shares were traded that day, known as Black Thursday. Five days later, on Black Tuesday some 16 million shares were traded after another wave of panic swept Wall Street. Bank runs swept the United States in the spring and fall of 1931 and… Read More

The New Deal was a set of economic programs, passed by Congress during President Roosevelt's first term, 1933-1937, in response to the Great Depression. The programs of The New Deal programs were to provide relief, recovery, and reform. The programs started in the first 100 days of President Roosevelt's first term, and were to deliver relief to the unemployed, and to those in danger of losing their homes, as well as, deliver recovery to agriculture… Read More

Things were cheaper and lots more people had jobs
Speculation on consumer goods helped to drive the Great Depression. Holding money became profitable as prices dropped lower and a given amount of money bought ever more goods, exacerbating the drop in demand
The major effect of the Great Depression on America was expanded government intervention into new areas of social and economic affairs and the creation of more social assistance agencies at the national level. The relationship between the national government and the people changed drastically. The government took on a greater role in the everyday social and economic lives of the people. The New Deal programs of FDR also created a liberal political alliance made up… Read More

While not ending the Great Depression, the New Deal measures did help put people back to work and did restore confidence in the government and economy. The New Deal was very expensive and the federal budget and deficit continued to increase. The growth of the federal government and the corresponding cost to maintain those new governmental agencies were major arguments against the New Deal. From FDR's New Deal to the present, the federal government has… Read More

The "first" New Deal dealt with mostly immediate measures of getting the unemployed back to work and providing welfare and recovery. As the Depression continued, FDR began to feel the heat of his critics, both left (Huey Long, Share the Wealth, Charles Townsend, socialists) and right (conservative businessmen, laissez-faire supporters, anti NIRA regulations). To combat these critics, FDR proposed a new set of economic and social measures to fight unemployment and poverty, and to provide… Read More
FDR did several things to calm the nation's fears during the Depression. First, he did not attend the inauguration balls but went right to work as the newly elected President. He declared that he was going to present legislation to Congress and he admitted that if something didn't work, he would try something else. He gathered about him some of the best economic minds of the time and they helped come up with legislation to… Read More
The Roaring Twenties became the 'lawless decade' helped along by prohibition and the great depression. The ban on the making and possessing of alcohol made organized criminals very rich. Combined with the bad economy that made people do desparate and questionable deeds, crime was rampant.
Bram knows :) There are a number of reasons why Nazism became popular during the Great Depression. Germany was in a very bad economic condition, not just because of the global depression but also as a result of the punitive peace terms of WW I. Desperate people are motivated to take desperate measures, and Nazism certainly offered rather extreme solutions. Nazism also appealed to people by blaming all of Germany's problems on Jews; irresponsible people… Read More

No, it had ripped through Germany starting in the early 1920s due to hyperinflation from its war reparations payments and spread from there. It finally hit the US when the combination of worldwide depression and the Dust Bowl overwhelmed the postwar boom economy that it had experienced since the end of the war.
crops got depressed, when they sold the crops humans got greatly depressed Over production means that there is too much supply for the existing demand, which results in lower prices, which results in the over producing business becoming unprofitable and failing. However, that was not a major cause of the Great Depression. I could argue that if farm production was too high for the existing demand, this means that they needed a better sales force… Read More

The relief measures of the New Deal did put people to work. But the New Deal failed in its attempt to achieve a complete economic recovery. The recession of 1937 was proof that the New Dealers had not unlocked the secrets of maintaining economic prosperity during peacetime.

However, it was then that Roosevelt was elected as President. He set up a number of schemes to help people including the alphabet… Read More

The Great Depression began with the stock market crash in October of 1929 which is known as Black Tuesday. It began in the United States and then soon spread to many other countries around the world (Germany, Russia, France, Italy, Austria-Hungary just to name a few). It was so devastating that 1 loaf of bread in Europe cost $112 U.S. dollars.

Hebert Hoover did do nothing really!! He did try Little to fight the Depression but his actions often backfired. For example, he tried to balance the the Federal budget by cutting by cutting government spending and raising taxes. This pulled money out of the economy which made the slump worse. Some of Hoovers actions made him very unpopular. For example, he believed that Federal Relief- aid to the poor- would make people dependent on government… Read More

Answer The middle classes were still there during the Great Depression. Any suggestion that everyone was reduced to grinding poverty is inaccurate. The difference during the Depression was that employment was very much lower, so that the number of "middle class" individuals decreased as a percentage of the population. Many of those who were still working also received less income, and the availability of consumer goods was sharply diminished.

There were several major causes of the Great Depression in the United States. 1. Unequal distribution of wealth. There was not a large middle class. While wages were rising for the majority of workers, they were not keeping pace with the increase in the cost of living or the wealth in the hands of the industrialists and others in the upper income classes. 2. There was over speculation in the Stock Market, which was not… Read More

One of the most important factors that led to the Great Depression was the independence of national economies. A major drop in world agricultural prices hurt southern and eastern Europe, where agriculture was small in quantity yet high in cost. When unable to make a profit on the international market, these agricultural countries bought fewer manufactured goods from the more industrial parts of northern Europe, causing a widespread drop in industrial productivity. Restrictions on free… Read More
