Meet Franklin D. Rosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States. A large amount of law was enacted in the first 100 days of FDR's administration, and Congress passed virtually everything Roosevelt asked for. This period is known as “the First 100 Days.” Roosevelt’s overall strategy for combating the depression was two-pronged—first, provide relief to those who needed it most; and second, re-structure the US economy from the bottom up.
Now meet Herbert Hoover the 31st President of the United States. It has been noted that President Herbert Hoover resisted the help of government authority and money in creating the New Deal. Many believed that what we now know as the Great Depression was merely a temporary downturn in the economy similar to that experienced many times in the past.
Corporations had too much power relative to both the government and society. Before the New Deal, the trends toward the difference between rich and poor were very strong and the economy could not sustain itself. I believe the New Deal worked because we got out of the Great Depression.
