As a matter of fact, President Roosevelt implemented programs to teach farmers soil conservation practices and educate them on sustainable levels (Wretz). FDR wanted to educate them because he felt like if they tried this it can stop the drought and could prevent this from ever happening again. Almost immediately, in 1935 FDR rolled out another round of New Deal programs because the Supreme Court struck down the National Industrial Recovery Act. He was concerned that other programs would also be eliminated (The Balance). The NIRA was put into action in 1933 and was a US labor law and consumer law passed by Congress to authorize the President to regulate the industry for fair wages and prices that would stimulate economic recovery.
Discuss the causes, implications and solutions of various historical and current economic events like the great depression. During the history of humanity, there were several economic events such as the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, the Gold Rush, and series of hyper-inflation. Each affected and reshaped the global economy significantly. Among these events, I would like to focus on the Great Depression, one of the most extreme economic disasters in the history. The Great Depression was basically caused by significant decrease in stock price at Wall Street, New York in 1929.
Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address Saturday, March 4 1865 Abe Lincoln gave one of the most famous inaugural speeches of all time. Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address was the speech in which Lincoln read as he was being sworn into his second term. He perfectly summed up his last term in a casual way and gave people closure about the losses and sacrifices made in the war. When Lincoln gave his second inaugural address, he presented it in a very solemn and serious way. As stated in the video, Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural David Blight states: “This is not a speech where he is trying to make the American people feel good...” Which from my understanding sound like he is just giving a short recap of his last term and explaining his choices

When elected to his first term in office, the United States was in the middle of the Great Depression. The Great Depression had begun in 1929, on October 29 “Black Thursday” and ended in 1939, it had affected many countries, but had hit the United States the hardest. This time had also had the biggest stock market crash, with over 9,000 banks failing, and seen the biggest unemployment rate ever (“Franklin D. Roosevelt: Domestic Affairs”). The unemployment rate was getting so high Roosevelt established several relief programs. These programs fell under the terms of the New Deal (“New Deal”).
On April 10, 1962, steel companies raised the prices by 3.5 percent of their products. President John F. Kennedy had tried to maintain steel prices at a stable rate. President John F. Kennedy, known for his diligence and persuasion, held a news conference about the hikes in steel prices. President John F. Kennedy, in his speech, uses rhetorical strategies such as diction, emotional appeals, and a persuasive tone to convince Americans that steel companies are declining the standards to maintain stable prices. Kennedy states that the steel companies are a national problem due to the increase of steel prices.
It is extremely hard to pull an entire nation out of a giant economic meltdown. In 1933 During the heat of the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the New Deal with the intent to extract the nation out of the Great Depression. The Great Depression was the period of time from 1929 to 1941 when the stock market crashed and millions of citizens were left jobless and miserable. The New deal consisted of three categories that all were designed to help the nation. These categories were Relief, Recovery, and Reform.
In his first Inaugural Address, Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued a call to action for the New Deal, stating: “Restoration calls, however, not for changes in ethics alone. This Nation asks for action, and action now,” (Roosevelt). He wanted to fix the problems that had resulted from the Great Depression, and in many ways he succeeded with his New Deal. Roosevelt created programs to provide direct and indirect relief to his people, applied reforms to clean up banking and finance, and facilitate economic recovery to get the U.S. back on track and keep another crisis from occurring. Those who disagree believe that FDR didn’t do enough for America’s poor, or that his deficit spending resulted in even worse consequences for America later on.
The New Deal was basically the set of federal programs established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt after being elected in 1933, in response to the calamity of the Great Depression, and lasting until the Second World War in 1942. People debate and argue on whether the “New Deal” was either a success or just a fail for society. Well there’s some claims for both opinions. A few reasons to why people think it would be a success is that Millions of people received relief, help with their mortgage, jobs and also from the alphabet agencies. The PWA and the TVA provided valuable economic, roads, airports, schools, theatres, dams, and more.
