Great Depression and New Deal

The Great Depression of the 1930’s was characterized by bank and business failures and high unemployment. The New Deal was President Franklin Roosevelt’s program to address the problems of the Depression. He focused on relief to the unemployed by providing jobs through work relief projects. His focus on recovery was to create programs that would help rebuild the ability of people to purchase items thus stimulating the economy. Finally, he sought to reform the parts of the economy that led to the Depression.
