On October 29th, 1929 the stock market crashed and sent the United States into a severe economic disaster marking the start of the Great Depression. The effects of the crash were extreme and affected the living and working conditions of Americans across the Country. People and families were not the only ones affected by the Great Depression. Many companies and organizations were feeling the effects as well. Baseball and the MLB were no exceptions. Many Americans did not have the even 50 cents to spare on leisurely activities so ticket sales and attendance decreased. In attempt to increase attendance to major league baseball games, the MLB came up with a few tactics that could help their cause such as the All Star Game, night games, and broadcasting games on the radio.
The Great Depression was a devastating tragedy that changed our economy. In the U.S, the Great Depression shortly happened after the stock market crash in 1929. This sent Wall Street into a great panic and wiped out millions of investors. Over the years, consumer spending and investments decreased. This caused declines in industrial output and raised unemployment as failing companies laid off workers. By 1933, 13 to 15 million Americans were unemployed and half the country’s banks had failed. However, the economy did not fully turn around until after 1939 during World War II. The three main causes of the Great Depression were the stock market crash, overs spending, and the overproduction of goods.
This tragic event sent Wall Street into a complete frenzy and took out millions of investors. Over the next few years, consumer investment and spending decreased.

After the end of World War I the Untied States entered a period of the Roaring Twenties. During the Roaring Twenties, production was high, spending was high, and the Stock market increased by over four hundred percent. By 1929, stocks were overpriced, factories were overproducing goods, and bad credit all climaxed with the collapse of the American economy. By the time the United States realized what was wrong the economy was plunging with no end in sight. In an attempt to prevent the collapse JP Morgan invested one hundred million dollars into the stock market to try and calm people and prevent selling. This only bought the United States a few day and on the infamous Black Tuesday the Stock market crashed.
1929 was the start of the deepest and darkest time for the United States Stock Market and the people of the United States. The Market crash, the loss of American jobs and homes, lead to one of the hardest downfalls in American history. Along with billions of dollars lost due to bad stock trading, over extending on personal credit and the spending of money that had yet to be produced.

The stock market crash of October 29, 1929 provided a dramatic end to an era of unprecedented, and unprecedentedly lopsided, prosperity. This disaster had been brewing for years. Different historians and economists offer different explanations for the crisis–some blame the increasingly uneven distribution of wealth and purchasing power in the 1920s, while others blame the decade’s agricultural slump or the international instability caused by World War I. In any case, the nation was woefully unprepared for the crash. For the most part, banks were unregulated and uninsured. The government offered no insurance or compensation for the unemployed, so when people stopped earning, they stopped spending. The consumer economy ground to a halt. An

The major issues which were looming in the US around the time of Herbert Hoover’s presidency was the Great Depression.

In 1928 Amelia accepted an offer to join a crew of a flight across the atlantic. Her manager Putnam who soon became her husband in 1931, arranged all her flying engagements, many which were followed by lecture tours. Those tours were staged to gain maximum publicity. Earhart became world-renowned as "the first woman to fly the Atlantic. “Earhart became upset by reports that she was largely a puppet figure created by her publicist husband and that she was something less than a competent aviator. To prove her skills as an aviator, she piloted a tiny, single-engine Lockheed Electra from Newfoundland, Canada, to Ireland. Then, on May 20-21, 1932, and five years after Lindbergh, Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic.” (Encyclopedia of World
The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place during the 1930s. The article by Edwin Gay and pictures compiled by Cary Nelson are both descriptions of how the Great Depression was and the several impacts that it had on the American economy.

Making mistakes is an important part of life. We learn from our mistakes. Mistakes are the best lessons of our life. They are something that happens unintentionally and without the knowledge of a human being. The only way mistakes can be avoided is to never do anything. Therefore, in my opinion it is necessary to make mistakes. But the question here is that what when these mistakes made by us, though unintentionally hurt the people around us? Is it the right thing to be done then? The reason as to why it is necessary to make mistakes is that mistakes are a learning experience for us. We learn about ourselves through our mistakes and even learn how to become a better citizen for the society.
