During the 1920’s, the United States economy was healthy and progressing, with a few minor economic setbacks. It was not until the 1929 Wall Street Crash that a steady economic decline was seen, although once it happened the economy quickly plummeted.

US Gross Domestic Product (current dollars)

The Great Crash, 1929-1933

in 1929: $103.6 billion

in 1930: $91.2

in 1931: $76.5

in 1932: $58.7

From 1929 to 1932 business production greatly fell. Overproduction and inflated prices meant that stock prices collapsed as the overpriced goods somewhat inevitably collapsed and were sold at bottom prices.
