The fund from employees, employers and the Canadian government was spread to the unemployed and it had managed to cover 42% of total unemployed. In contrast to the Bennett’s, King, here, focused on supporting the unemployed rather than giving them low-waged jobs in a forceful way. With the increased trade with Canada due to the increase in demand but lower price, King was able to achieve the improvements in the employment due to more job opportunities, and this insurance scheme had played a great role in forming the foundation of future unemployment scheme. Therefore, Mackenzie’s policy should be seen as more effective since its method had more public’s support as seen from “King or Chaos” and actually contributed to the stabilisation of the Canadian
Revolutions streaked across the globe as people became disillusioned towards the government. The Great Depression created a desolation upon the world, and required a tabula rasa to engender change.

On one of the most devastating days in economic history, the stock market crashed with the value of the dollar being useless. Many families were left without any warning, losing any of their savings placed in stocks. People started to worry, rushing to the banks to withdraw quickly whatever money they had left to make sure they didn 't lose anything else. Banks were closing faster than people could get to them, leaving people with nothing. The people who did grasp their money spent less on items that they needed because prices skyrocketed, which in return got people getting laid off from their jobs, worsening the economy and losing even more money.
This theory explains that there are two types of outcomes: manifest functions and latent functions. These outcomes are either expected or a result of the interaction between groups. The previous example of immigrants as a driving force in the economy could be applied to latent function. They intend to work and contribute to the economy, but do not expect to become a vital part of the economic system. But in return, they also do not expect to be underprivileged.
Affordability became a major factor in the home buying process. To help make housing more affordable, builders reduced lot sizes and increased the density of developments.

High mortgage rates destroyed the value of mortgage-backed loans, which is the primary asset of the savings and loans association.

Jobs were lost and unemployment rose from around 7.5% to more than 10%. The recession caused a loss of 2.9 million jobs, representing a 3% drop in payroll employment.
The Great Crash generally refers to the stock market crash (in America - Wall Street) on 29 October, 1929. It started on Thursday, 23 October when just before the 3:00 pm bell rang, the stock prices instantly fell. For the following week stocks fell lower and faster and changed hands so fast, the machines that kept track of these stocks seemed unable to cope up with the activity. All along while President Herbert Hoover reassured the people of America that the nation was “on a sound and prosperous basis”, more panic spread and because the uncertainty and risk was rising, people wanted their money back. In all this frenzy the United States Securities Regulation agencies could have shut down the market but they feared that would only spread more fear and could have led to a violent display of the emotions of the public.
A very controversial topic in the past few years has been immigration. Immigration is better for Canada because it helps introduce different cultures, increase Canada 's growth, and raise economic worth. Canada is well known for its diverse cultures. Immigration helps introduce many new cultures to Canada, aiding it to keep the diverse, vibrant and accepting identity that Canada currently has today (Vaughan). The reason immigration helps give Canada the identity it has today is because if Canada didn 't accept immigrants it would be less diverse and more un-inclusive.
At the time Newfoundland joined with Canada, the average income of the colony was one-third of the Canadian average and the death rate associated with diseases of poverty was three times higher. Joey Smallwood’s promised reforms would mean the new province would be able to enjoy a higher standard of living. This ultimately encompassed “a healthier population, less TB, a lower infant mortality: better care for the aged and blind, and war vets, too…”⁴ All of these aspects contributed greatly to the overall prosperity and security enjoyed by Newfoundlanders after joining Canada and continues to benefit them today. 3.Waterson, Adam G.

Robert’s story did not occur in isolation and is, instead, is situated in the specific social, political and economic context of the late 1940s to 1950s. By this time, World War Two (WWII) had subsided, the economy was recovering, and Canada found itself fairly well situated to accept new immigrants (Hawkins, 1988, p.99). Fuelled by the expansion of certain industries (e.g. construction), this period “saw the beginning of a significant economic boom in Canada” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.316; Troper, 1993, p.250). Therefore, what had previously been characterized by a relatively restrictive climate for immigration, due to the fear during WWII, was gradually replaced with more “libera[l]” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.318) immigration policies
