Create a new Google Doc, answer the following question:
Would a place like Cabrini-Green benefit from more government regulation or would a laissez-faire approach be better? Why?
New Deal Context
- Americans tired of depression
- Many began to wonder if capitalism/democracy could work
- President Hoover was extremely unpopular
- Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) promises America "a New Deal"
President Hoover insisted that hard work would "put a car in every garage and a chicken in every pot" and that prosperity was "around the corner".
Do you think he was right or did we need government intervention to get us out of the depression?
Schools of Thought
- Govt. puts money into the economy to boost it
- Positives: Lots of money quickly
- Negatives: Increases debt & inflation
- Economy naturally goes up & down
- Positives: Best businesses & practices survive
- Negatives: Might take longer to work
Sketch a diagram/image next to each theory that shows how that theory works.
Be prepared to explain it to your table.
- FDR's program to get the US out of the depression
- Govt. agencies create jobs to build infrastructure
- Ex: Works Progress Administration (WPA)
Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)
Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC)
Social Security Administration (SSA)
Agricultural Adjustment Agency (AAA)
Which Agency is it????
