New Deal Vocabulary The New Deal was the name President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave to the series of programs between 1933–1938 with the goal of relief, recovery and reform of the United States economy during the Great Depression. First Hundred Days - Americans of all political persuasions were demanding immediate action, and Roosevelt responded with a remarkable series of new programs in the “first hundred days” of the administration. The fireside chats were a series of thirty evening radio talks given by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944. Bank Holiday – Emergency bank closures mandated by executive order or act of Congress to ease financial crises. The holiday mandated by the Emergency Banking Act of 1933 is perhaps the most notable of these.
