Summary

A stock market crash in 1929 set off a severe economic depression. During the Great Depression, millions of people lost their jobs, homes, and savings. A new U.S. President, Franklin Roosevelt, introduced a series of bold reforms designed to combat the effects of the Depression and prevent another depression. Yet, his reforms also increased the size and power of government.
