We don't need the Government's help we can do it all independently!
The five main causes of the Great Depression were: The Stock Market Crash of 1929, Bank Failures, Reduction in Purchasing across the board, American Economic policy with Europe, and drought conditions. I think the drought was the most important because it made lots of people loose their jobs, homes, and become hungry.
The New Deal
Rugged individualism indicates that a person is completely self-reliant and is solely independent from any other assistance. Hoover didn't want to use too much of the nation's power to solve problems because he thought that the large economic problems could be solved without complicating it more by using the government.
Second Bill of Rights
Hoovervilles were a nickname for built up shantytowns built by homeless people during the Great Depression. They were named after the President at the time, Herbert Hoover, and who was mainly blamed for the Great Depression at the time. Hoovervilles weren't clean, they weren't well built, and they weren't enjoyable to live in.
Success or Failure?
Thank goodness for this job, I can go grocery shopping today now!
The New Deal was a system put in by Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression, which consisted of programs and projects made to restore the United States and the people living in it. The second new deal added more programs such as works progress administration and the national labor relations act.
One of the programs was Public Work Administration which funded public works projects like schools or hospitals.
The second bill of rights were a new set of rights for Americans, that was guarenteed for everyone. Some things included in this were things like, every family having the right to a decent home and also for people to have the right to a useful and well paid job. I disagree with these new rights, because I think you should have to earn what you get, whether that is a job, car, or even house.
This symbolizes how the second bill of rights would pay people the same amount for people not working as the people who did work.
I think that the New Deal was a success because the New Deal brought new programs to our country that were very useful and that we still use today. (some of those programs were public work projects and social security) The New Deal also gave the Americans hope for the future and that they might get out of the Great Depression.
