The Great Depression started with the infamous stock market crash on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929. The president during the stock market crash was Herbert Hoover and he was president during much of the harshest times in US history until the election of 1832 when he was ousted by Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Great Depression was rough for Americans. The main reasons the tragedy fell upon us included overproduction in agriculture, buying on margin (buying with credit) in the stock market and overspeculation, and unequal wealth distribution. Hoover was a conservative and believed that laissez-faire economics would sort out the Depression and let it bounce back up naturally. Sad to say, it only kept getting worse. When Hoover finally realized that government intervention was needed to keep America's economy afloat, he was outvoted for FDR. FDR was a staunch liberal who was determined to see the US economy back to normal no matter what. He employed questionable tactics but he also employed thousands of jobless, penniless men. Though his 1932 election platform had included the criticism of Hoover's excessive government funding, he was finally convinced that the government had to spend that which was not there in order to lift the nation out of the Depression, in other words go into deficit-spending. It appeared to pay off, but the Depression never truly ended until World War 2 came along and took the democracies of the world by storm. The intense and abundant orders for military supplies quickly dug the nation out of unemployment and a creeping economy. Soon the GNP started soaring and wages and salaries followed soon after. FDR was reelected twice, serving what was supposed to be three terms. He died of a brain hemorrhage in 1945, a year after he was reelected, and the presidency and the problem of World War 2 was passed on to an unknowing and slightly oblivious Harry Truman.
