A New Deal

By: Halle Jaggers


Was a series of economic programs in the United States. They involved presidential executive orders or laws passed by Congress during the first term of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The programs were in response to the Great Depression, and focused on what historians call the "3 Rs": Relief, Recovery, and Reform. That is, Relief for the unemployed and poor; Recovery of the economy to normal levels; and Reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression.


FDR's economic policy and his programs became the backbone of the New Deal. This included regulation of the banks, regulation of the Stock Market, relief and public works programs, like the CCC, SSS, CAB,CSB, EHFA and WPA.
The New Deal focused on the three R's: Relief, Recovery, and Reform.


One example would be the reformation actions we took in this time getting out of our own economy church. Another example is when the United States helped out other countries in their wars economy failures.


One non-example would be to bring the economy and the country down even farther. Another would be to not help the pubic and for the government to be unfair and make bad bills and deals.
