Despite agricultural overproduction and successive attempts in Congress to provide relief, the agricultural economy of the 1920s experienced an ongoing depression. Large surpluses were accompanied by falling prices at a time when American farmers were burdened by heavy debt. Between 1920 and 1932, one in four farms was sold to meet financial obligations and many farmers migrated to urban areas. With one-fifth of the American population making their living on the land, rural poverty was widespread. So, not everybody was able to participate fully in the emergent consumer economy in American. Apart from white farmers, African American and immigrants found this decade tough

Letter to the editor

Editor,

Im Ashlynn Kelley and there are a few things that are causing a problem in America. Prohibition has made drinking that contains more than 1% of alcohol illegal. This is a big problem right now and many things are resulting negatively. Men are showing up late and hungover to work or not even at and crime rates are going up. This is a bad time and these problems need to be fixed once and for all.
