New Deal Wrap-Up I. Where we ended last time: Huey Long critiques “first” New Deal from the left The “first” New Deal 1933-1935: what it did and what it didn’t (AAA, NRA, PWA, CCC…) The “second” New Deal (after 1935): Social Security, WPA, Farm Security Administration from the National Recovery Administration (NRA) to “countervailing power”/ a New Deal for labor: Wagner Act 1935 Huey Long – Corrupt but popular populist candidate from Louisiana - The government should tax more and re-distribute it to the people - Inequality. - A man without a home, with clothes, food to eat, a job, a education, etc. - Assassinated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
