Both presidents tried to rely on and use the federal government to help the economy, more so than any previous president before them. Hoover is often blamed for not doing anything to end the Great Depression, but he actually did try to use the government to create infrastructure projects, thus creating jobs.

Ronald Reagan went from a simple shoe store owner to a student athlete and student body president to an actor to a politician and finally ended up as the Fortieth President of the United States.

Franklin Roosevelt was a very influential and important president in American history who had an immense impact on the American economy and social policy during the 1930’s and 40’s and throughout the future of America, he also shared some ideas with the author John Steinbeck.

The claim that Reagan’s increasing actions against communism and the USSR directly led to the appointment of reformist Mikhail Gorbachev to the post of General Secretary
