Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
How successful do you believe this program was at relieving the economic crisis?
I wouldn't say the FDIC was great at relieving the economic crisis because it didn't to much for getting people jobs but it did an amazing and is still doing a beautiful job at keeping that same crisis from repeating itself.
How does this program add to your understanding of the Great Depression?
The creation of this program helps me understand that before the program was created the U.S financial system really wasn't all that reliable and the depositors had nothing to fall back on. Which was one of the major reasons that flared the Great Depression.
