FC: The Great Depression

1: The Great Depression was caused by the stock market crash . Two months after the first crash in October, stockholders had lost more then 40 billion dollars. Even though the stock market was starting to regain some of the loses it was just not enough. Over 9,000 banks failed. Bank deposits were uninsured and so as banks failed people simply lost their savings.


3: The Great Depression lasted about eight years,1933 through 1941

4: Life during the Great Depression was very difficult. People were struggling just to get by. Money was very tight so many people were sleeping on the streets. Many couples delayed marriage because of the price and divorce right dropped increasingly

6: Everyone was effected by the Great Depression no matter what their money status is. But the people that were hurt the most were the lower class people by far. They barely had anything to start out with then this happens and they loose everything. Higher class people who already have a fair amount of money don't get hit as hard as the lower class, they loose some money but life goes on.

10: The Great Depression took many small acts to slowly get out of the Depression. New Deals were set into act by the President to help the people out. And since the War started many countries turned to us for supplies so people got jobs as laborers to make supplies and other jobs like this. With small acts such as these we slowly started to crawl out of the Great Depression.
