This paper is about the Great Depression that hit Americans during the 1930's. The author goes into depth about FDR's "new deal" and how it helped get America out of the depression. Includes information about each program and how it worked.
From the Paper:"During the 1930's, Americans witnessed a breakdown of the Democratic and free enterprise system as the US fell into the worst depression in history. At the depth of the depression, in 1933, one American worker in every four was out of a job (Conkin 136). During these times the people looked to the federal government for solutions. The president then, Herbert Hoover, did little for the country to get out of the depression, because he believed that the country did not have the power or money for social programs and many people blamed him for the depression. With the economy at an all time low people wanted change, change which Franklin D. Roosevelt offered through his legislative program. This program represented a new way of government for capitalism in America. Roosevelt first used the term "New Deal" when he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination in 1932. He said "I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for the American people," (Morgan 36)."
