Hoover Quote- August 11, 1928
Clipart- Prezi
The conditions of life were absolutely horrible! People became desperate for a better life. They often ran away from their families, became violent, became alcoholics, and/or committed suicide (usually men).
The New Deal forever changed the responsibility of the fed. gov.
Roosevelt's style of presidency set a precedent of how a president should/can run
citizens were open to take more risks for their overall well being
We now know way more about economics which prevents us from going into another economic depression (which comes with the effects stated earlier)
People before the New Deal didn't really expect the gov. to get involved when in trouble after the New Deal it was expected the only question was how they would
Gives you an idea of how hard it was to survive such terrible times during the G.D and the Dust Bowl
Roosevelt's relief,recovery, and reform programs presented in the New Deal
Roosevelt ended prohibition=better for the economy
formation of the Public Works Administration
The passing of the Wagner Act (allowed workers to voice any unfair acts going on in the workplace and go on labor strikes while not directly effecting the Union)
Common working poor people went on strikes for ex.- the Sit Down Strike of 1936 workers stayed in their auto shop workplace and stopped working to lounge in hopes of getting an offer of a higher salary to provide for their families (this worked)

"We have not yet reached the goal but... we shall soon, with the help of God, be in sight of the day when poverty shall be banished from this nation."- President Herbert Hoover
"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."- President Franklin D. Roosevelt
Hoover (1929-1933) was now seen as the President that left America hanging
Roosevelt (1933-1945) almost became known as the hero because he picked up where Hoover had brutally left people in such horrible conditions he began to positively rebuild the economy from the ground up

in 1929: 3.2%

As the Depression began to come to a close the Average rate of unemployment still was very high but for ex. comparing 1933 to 1937 there shows a big improvement
The Public Works Admin. gave the unemployed the opportunity of getting a blue collar
(for ex.- construction) job so they wouldn't have to completely rely off of Roosevelt's relief programs presented in the New Deal
