The top five causes of the Great Depression are the following, the stock market crash of 1929, reduction in purchasing across the board, bank failures, American economic policy with Europe, and drought conditions. I think the most important being the stock market crash this event lead to many others like the bank failures and reduction in purchasing across the board.
President Roosevelt's New Deal
I'm so glad we are back to work !
Rugged individualism is being completely independent and non-reliant on other's assistance, like the government. Hoover, as many scholars believe never grasped the idea that large economic issues may need direct government involvement to be solved, instead of solving issues on our own.
President Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights
It stinks that we are doing all the work and they get paid the same amount!
Hoovervilles were shantytowns made from resourceful scraps like glass, lumber, and cardboard. Life was unsanitary as the homes were small and infection could spread rapidly. It was the only option for those that lost jobs to the economic crisis, and they were named after Hoover because may believe that he did not provide enough for the nation.
New Deal- Success or Failure
I am so glad I have a place to work!
Yes, know I can provide more for my family!
The "First Hundred Days" was the beginning, leading in to the New Deal which was 15 separate bills put together. The bills were put into use to regulate banking systems, social security works, and the unemployment issues.
Me too! Thanks to the New Deal.
The Second Bill of Rights was introduced to provide security and prosperity for all. They included The right to medical and opportunity to achieve best health, Right to protection from old age, sickness, accident, or unemployment, Right to have a decent home, Right for all farmers to raise and sell his products, Right to businessmen to trade in an fair competition. I think the idea of having all these is very nice, though it would not be done equally or work for a long period of time.
With the Second Bill of Rights it would mean that everyone would get the same wage or salary, even if they did not work hard enough.
I think the New Deal can be seen as both, as there were many successful programs and ways to get people out of unemployment. Most importantly, if helped bring confidence to the society that there could be a way out of the Depression. However, some believe it was too costly and did not provide enough for the poor.
