The Depression: What imbalances helped to cause the Great Depression of the 1930's? Be sure to include how each of the following contributed either to its outbreak or spread: over production, margin buying, high tariffs, war loans.
The Great Depression was caused by many great imbalances that came together at one time. Factories were manufacturing goods at a high pace during the war. When the war ended the production pace was still very high. Farmers did not earn as much after the war causing a big imbalance because the cost of the factory items increased,but no one was able to purchase these goods. Margin buying also played a huge role in contributing to the Great Depression because people had bought stocks and were afraid that the stocks would not do well. So many people withdrew their money from the stock companies, the problem was that everyone took out their money at the same time, causing the New York stock crash. the U.S. placed high tariffs on items to protect themselves from foreign countries. the problem was that other countries also raised tariff prices causing everyone to stop buying from the global market.
