Great Depression: 5 Causes of the Great Depression
Great Depression: Rugged Individualism
Great Depression: Hoovervilles
The dust bowl, Ensuing Global Crisis, Smoot-Hawley Tarrif Act, and the Economic decline all played a part in the Great depression, but the most important was the stock market crash. Why? Because the Stock Market Crash made people lose their money that they had gotten loans for and made the people lose their house and other items because they couldn't pay the bills.
Great Depression: Roosevelt's New Deal
Rugged individualism is the belief that everyone or almost everyone can do things by their self with as low government help as possible.
Great Depression: Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights
Hoovervilles were places where people who couldn't pay their bills, lost their job, or lost their home went to. Hoovervilles where made out of cardboard and sometimes wood. The Hoovervilles were usually located right on the outskirts of large cities/towns.
Great Depression: New Deal...Success or Failure?
New Deal Success OR Fail
President Roosevelt created something called the New Deal. The New Deal created programs that were supposed to help people that had lost their jobs, lost their house, and that where struggling just in general.
The second Bill of Rights were rights that FDR thought that we needed in this time. One thing that I disagree with that was in the second Bill of rights was when FDR said that everyone had the same pay of minimum wage because if someone stops working then that will spread off to other workers.
I think the New Deal was a fail for a couple reasons. Historians say that if FDR wouldn't have done anything, then the Great Depression would've been over in another year instead of a couple years. Also, Herbert Hoover was trying to do things within the Constitutional limits.
