Bank Failures

Big image
Throughout the 1930s, over 9,000 banks had failed. The remaining banks were afraid of failing, so they discontinued giving out loans. People were outraged, and most lost all of their savings as banks could not afford to give it back. This is one of the main reasons for the lack of wealth in the Great Depression.
