Storyboard Text

  • One of the First legislation to come out of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Hundred Day Congress was the Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) , this was passed in 1933.
  • The AAA controlled the supply of "basic crops" like corn, wheat, rice, etc. By paying the Farmers to not use the land for farming.
  • Roosevelt's Plan for the AAA was to decrease the amount of crops & Livestock (meats) on the market, so the crop & meat price would increase and in turn would help the farmers.
  • The AAA best falls under Recovery in Roosevelt's Three R's. By not having as many crops on the market, the consumers would want it more, this would stimulate the economy.
  • The AAA did help with a lot of aspects of life for farmers, but it is a failure. The AAA only helped farmers and not sharecroppers at the time, those who benefitted from the AAA were hit largely from the dust bowl and farmers had to leave their farmers and head to the city.
  • The AAA was stopped in 1936 when the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional. A new AAA in 1939 was created which made farmers keep a storage of crops in case of hard times. There are many laws after the AAA that even continue on today, like the Agricultural Act of 2014.
