The Great Depression
Causes and Effects of The Great Depression
In 1932, Hoover gave $300 million to the states to help the unemployed (Emergency Relief and Reconstruction Act) but it had little impact as states run by the Republicans believed in "rugged individualism" more than Hoover did. Many saw Hoover’s attempts as being "too little too late".In the1932 election, Hoover was heavily defeated by the Democrat candidate. This man had promised the American public a "New Deal". His name was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Thirteen years of Republican rule had come to an end.
