The FDIC was created in 1933 in response to the thousands of bank failures that occurred in the 1920s and early 1930s. The FDIC was a provision of the Glass-Steagall Act. During the nine year period from 1921-1929 more than 600 banks failed each year. The failed banks were small banks operating in the rural suburban areas and held the deposits of mostly farmers and blue collar folks. When banks fold and continue to do so, people will start to worry about their money in any bank.
The 1832 Reform Act, or Great Reform Act, was passed to increase voting rights, to provide correct representation in the House of Commons of the British Parliament, and to dispel the fear of revolution. Leading up to the 19th century, not many people had the right to vote, and many people believed that it was time that all men deserved the right to vote. This belief led to the publics call for parliamentary reform. Voting rights wasn’t the only existing problem at the time, because the industrial revolution had changed the distribution of the population, where more people started to gather in the cities, causing rapid growth in industrial cities. This caused a problem for Parliament, because before the Industrial revolution people were generally evenly spread across the country.

Before this act was passed, banking was not regulated which allowed banks to set interest rates to whatever they wanted and control the money supply. This led to many money panics that led to recessions and depressions. The Federal Reserve Act called for there to be regional reserve banks that would be overseen by a Federal Reserve Board that would be appointed by the government (74). The passing of Federal Reserve Act is considered a progressive action because it regulated the banking industry and prevented trusts between the individual banks
Overview of Tax Reforms Processes in Ghana The tax reform process in Ghana can broadly be divided into three overlapping phases namely, restoring the tax base, strengthening production incentives, enhancing tax efficiency and equity. The first phase of the tax reform process (that is, restoring the tax base, 1983-84), was designed largely to restore the tax base which had been totally eroded by the continuous over-valuation of the domestic currency and the large discrepancy between the official prices and market prices.
