9780028642895: The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Great Depression (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback))

The Wall Street stock market crash on October 24, l929, called Black Thursday, precipitated the Great Depression, the worst economic downturn in the history of the United States. By l932, the U.S. faced failing banks, farms, and businesses; a collapsed economy, and 25% unemployment. This book will detail the causes of the Great Depression, and the governmental programs that arose, such as the New Deal and the WPA (Works Progress Administration), and the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission). Perhaps most importantly, the book will explore how it could easily happen again. The author will show how an entire generation of Americans was affected, illustrating the courage and indestructible spirit of the American people and how they dealt with the hardships the Depression created in everyday life.
