Best Answer

Asia was hit by the Great Depression due to its dependence on the export of raw materials with Europe and America, predominantly rubber and tin for the automotive industry. Asian trade fell sharply as America and Europe were gripped by the depression. Firms in Asia responded by cutting their workforce and reducing wages. In Japan, unemployment and poverty rose, disproportionately affecting the lower classes; these hardships were a factor in the rise of Japanese nationalism.
