5 causes of the depression are, Stock Market Crash, Bank Failures, Reduction in Purchasing, American Economic Policy with Europe and Drought. I feel the stock market crash was the biggest cause because, It cause everything to fall out of place. It was the main cause for loosing jobs reduction in purchasing and bank failures.
Now who wants to end the depression
Herbert Hoover believed that letting the government intervene would give the government to much power also, it would make people lazy and rely on the government. It could also, raise the national debt we had exponentially.
Second Bill of Rights
We need to change some things in the bill of rights. Maybe a new one should be made
Hoovervilles are many people who are homeless in proximity to each other. Like people who live on the out skirts of a city. Life in the hoovervilles was terrible. They didn't have any money or food. They would have to scavenge and go off of scaps. They also, didn't have very good insulation and weather protection.
Was the New Deal a Success or Failure
I love social security
President Franklin D Roosevelt created a plan to make America thrive again during the depression. This plan was would give Americans benefits not thought of before. He made this plan to end the depression.
The second Bill of Rights was FDR's view of what the bill of rights should have. It had right to a house, medicare, protection in old age and more. I disagree because, people would stop working and get the same amount of money as people who do work. It will destroy the economy and America would fail.
I feel the New Deal extended the depression but, brought many benefits we use today into America. Now we have social security, welfare, we don't have to follow the gold standard and many more. I think it prolonged the depression but, gave the people that we could live without today. I think the purpose was a failure but the consequences were a success.
