During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt used several revolutionary tactics to reform the American economy and the lives of the American people. He later implemented his New Deal plan to assuage Americans from the plight of the Depression. Although the Deal didn't help very much during the depression because of the divisions in society and politics, it did establish a precedent for the American government and its relations with the public that is still seen during the 21st century.
The main reason why the Depression was perpetuated was because of vase unemployment. According to Document D, the Roosevelt administration put a lot of money towards public-works projects in order to to change this.
They created different programs to target different groups of the unemployed. Roosevelt first started with agricultural reforms by establishing the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, which created a relationship between farmers and the government by providing a limit to production.
Next came the industrial reforms, which started with the National Recovery Administration that gave employers strict rules for their treatment of their workers. The NRA also tried to create jobs and an economy by starting public works projects. Based on Document C, by the second New Deal there were so many administrations.
Both would act as a safety valve for Americans, as they could be confident that the government would take care of them if they needed it. Passed inthese acts provided benefits to working Americans, the unemployed, and the elderly.
Social security and welfare were highly advertised by the Social Security board as a way to comfort distressed Americans, who were devastated by their predicament, depicted by Document E. Although the New Deal sounded like it would relieve America from the Depression, it barely changed the lives of Americans at the time for many reasons.
The exclusion of women derived from the original feelings of male supremacy: Many women in society contested this sentiment, as seen in Document A, but their cries were unheard as Roosevelt and his administration put men first.
According to Document I, although minorities were supposed to be included in the reforms, they weren't treated the same as Whites by the reform administrations and weren't given the same amount of aid, if any at all. The conservatives in America, including the wealthy and those unaffected by the Depression, contested the New Deal as well and deemed it radical or too close to Communism or Socialism.
As depicted by Document B, many said it wouldn't work and unfortunately they were correct. The New Deal, however beneficial it seemed, couldn't greatly change the predicament of Americans because of the noncompliance of many but according to Document J, mainly because so many were unemployed.
Although it tried to make radical changes during the depression, the New Deal's most important contribution to America was the precedent it set for the government and the laws it secured for Americans. The New Deal modernized the American government by introducing the concept of the government caring for its citizens.
It also strengthened the government by creating public reform boards such as the NRA, which were all looked over by the president. This idea gave the public some confidence that their government was trying to help them.
After that these confidences were boosted through the concept of Social Security, which assured Americans that the government would protect them and their families. The New Deal created a new American government, which is similar to the one of the 21st century.
Based on Document H, the government was now stronger and more organized and had a bond to the public that is necessary to any good government. The New Deal Changed the role of the federal government was changed for the better because now Americans are able to see that the government was trying to help them.
Although Roosevelt's New Deal did not reconstruct the shattered American economy, it did create a more powerful labor movement and a vastly expanded the role for the federal government.
The New Deal brought reforms to the American economy and the American people. Through public works administrations and Social Security the New Deal tried to end the devastation of the Depression.
But the Depression was too large to be ended by the New Deal, which was too radical for some Americans, so it was not supported.
In the end, the wartime boom from World War II was the reason why the Depression finally ended, but the New Deal changed the face of the American government by creating a relationship of trust between it and the public.
This relationship still exists to some extent when it comes to the government providing for its people, and it wouldn't, had it not been for the New Deal.Analyze the responses of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration to the problems of the Great Depression.
