New Deal

Helping the world out


A set of policies formulated by Roosevelt to alleviate the problems of the Great Depression.


The New Deal focused on three general goals which were relief for the needy, economic recovery, and financial reform.


  • Expanded governments roll in economy
  • Carry out reforms in banking and finance
  • Closed all banks of March 5th to stop further debt
  • Passed Emergency Banking Relief Act
  • Those who needed help could receive loans


Letting to poor/needy suffer, not doing anything to help the economy, and no financial reform would all be non-examples of the New Deal.
