S: THe Great Depression
FC: The great depression by Joey Nolt
1: There are many reasons why the great depression came about but the main reason is that the stock market crashed. People would borrow money and would invest it in stock and when the stock market crashed nobody had any money. By then the bank would want its money back that the people borrowed. Of course the people who borrowed did not have it and then the bank would take their house. Another reason is because people who did have money left couldn't get it because the bank closed.
5: The US Great Depression lasted for ten long gruesome years. Some countries all around the world lasted even longer. we as a country will never forget that horrible experience. Things have been done so that future generations will never have to suffer the Great Depression.
6: Life during the great depression was horrible. people were starving and few things were being done to fix this. People could hardly afford food that was the cheapest that they ever been. People when they got money saved it and rarely spent it. We needed people to by things so that the business's would keep going and then they would need employees and then people would get jobs and money.
7: The Great Depression affected everybody world wide. America is one of the number one nation that trade with other countries. Alot of countries relied on Aerica to buy their stuff that they produce. when America did not have any money to trade with the countries then the countries have allot ofroducts but not enough people buying them.
