The New Deal

The Second New Deal

The Presidents Promise

The New Deal was the name of President Franklin Roosevelt's legislative agenda for rescuing the United States from the Great Depression. the depression was caused by the instability of the market and that government intervention was necessary to rationalize and stabilize the economy.

The New Deal consisted of large projects, such as road building which were designed to relieve unemployment and provide a boost to the economy.

The New Deal was loosely based upon an economic theory called Keynesianism. Which believes that in times of ressession, governments should try to stimulate the economy by creating employment.

the new deal changed the U.S by making it a welfare state the federal goverment became much larger and the debt went up billions of dollars because of all the programs.

The new new Deal

The second new deal was the legislation that Roosevelt and Congress passed between 1935 and 1938 was different from the First New Deal in certain ways. Perhaps most important, the Second New Deal legislation relied more heavily on the Keynesian style of deficit spending than the First New Deal did. Roosevelt changed his policy mostly because of complaints from critics and because, by 1935, it was clear that more Americans still needed federal relief assistance. Roosevelt aimed for half of the Second New Deal programs and policies at long-term reform.

Kansas City Connection

like most of the nation Kansas city economy was really hurt by the unemployment, bank closures, and business failures that followed the stock market crash of 1929. The drought of the 1930s impacted the Kansas city economy even more, which was because of agricultural production. From 1934 through 1937, as the Great Depression worsened, the western part of the state became a Dust Bowl. Along with its urban workers, the state’s farmers faced tough times. all of the programs that FDR made still have a impact on our city right now just like the ccc helping unemployed people get back on their feet in kc. also the the home owners loan corp which help people in kc keep their homes and saved families. and with all that today we have goverment buildings,public highways and public hospitals
