Keith Llanas April 12, 2007 US History 397 Lecture: Did the new deal solve/handle/deal adequately with the depression? I. Did the new deal solve/handle/deal adequately with the depression? a. The Easy Answer is to say, No. i. Unemployment and the business index never reached the level of 1929 until after the 30s were over. ii. Under these terms, the answer is no. Although the New Deal made improvements, it also struggled in many areas, and never returned the US back to the level of prosperity that it experienced in 1929. 1. So in that sense, FDR essentially didn’t do any better than Hoover Critics on both sides argue that the New Deal did not solve the depression II. Critical Conservatives: a. The New Deal was simply the wrong way to go at it. This kind of use of government, the intrusion of government, destroyed its intentions. b. It mainly failed to get the country out of depression due to A LACK OF BUSINESS CONFIDENCE. i. FDR didn’t bring assurance to the businesses.

    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.
