Payton Remiger CITS History Mr. David Cink Introduction The New Deal was proposed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt created the New Deal to help America get out of the Great Depression. Many people debate on whether this New Deal helped the United States get out of the Great Depression, or if it was just a series of extra programs. The New Deal affected different groups of people and in some ways had the potential to hurt others. For this reason, that is why the New Deal is such a controversial topic. Some credible authors that give their opinions on the New Deal are Carl N. Degler, Ronald Radosh, and Anthony J. Badger. Degler is an advocate for the New Deal. He believes that the New Deal had a great, positive impact upon America. Radosh, on the other hand, thought that the New Deal only had small impacts and benefitted big corporations. Badger believes that the New Deal had an impact, whether small or big; however, he thought that some programs were accidentally successful and had the potential to turn out differently. Carl N.

    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.
