Economic- Many people lost their jobs. To be exact, 12,830,000 people were unemployed. the reason for the Great Depression is, the very first stock market crashed. Everybody was out of money and no one could pay back their loans so it crashed. Thats how the Great Depression started.
Geography- Farmers had to start all over and use new products for their crops to grow.In Texas the Dust Bowl brought extreme heat. The Dust Bowl happened in 1936. It was very severe. The Dust Bowl also known as the Dirty Thirties, was a period of very severe dust srotms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the U.S and Canadian prairies during the 1930's; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion caused the phenomenon.
Black Tuesday and Newspapers
Since the stock market crashed they had Black Tuesday. Which was a day that nobody had money everyone was out of jobs and that people could not give back loans.
Sleeping in Pain
Once nobody had money people had lost their houses, jobs, and many things they needed to survive. So some people had to sleep in the street. In this picture a man who probably has lost his job and has to sleep on a park bench.
Once the news got out that nobody could pay the loans back and the bank was running out of money. Everybody rushed to the banks to get their money. Once the bank did run out of money the people who didnt get their money, they went home empty handed.
