The ups and downs of the U.S.
1929-1932 the Great Depression
without funding many farmers didnt have enough money to buy grain or food for cattle
During this time most farmers in the U.S. lived in the panhandles the downside is that in this area the climate became dry and there was a drought
After a while animals died out, crops died, and farmers went bankrupt
how farmers children were treated during these times
20% of America's children were hungry and without proper clothing.
In some coal mining regions, the percentage of malnourished children reached as high as 90%. Children went without shoes and warm clothes for the winter. During this time children on farms were hit very hard considering that there families depended on the now dissipated food on their farms.
I believe that the great depression was caused by peoples own selfishness and also the lack of control in the economic system. after all of the unstability in the system im suprised that all the chaos lasted that long. There are many things that could have prevented this but the u.s. said "oh look an answer!" *U.S. throws out window* . Over all the system sucked.
i think that the great depression was a horrible time especially for people who were already in poverty because some of those people lost their homes and had no money for food.
