Alphabet agencies were created under Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression as relief for the unemployed and to prevent another stock market crash. (Including: Social Security Administration (SSA), Public Works Administration (PWA), Federal Deposit Insurance Cooperation (FDIC), etc., etc.)
