Given his political ties to the directors of the Bank of England, the public looked to him to help persuade the bank to help in a time of need. As historian John Francis mentioned, the Bank of England was originally built to help Parliament in times of financial need. However, many did not appreciate the Bank of England when it indeed helped the country.

Hoover getting undermined by Congress was definitely not what he thought was going to happen, thinking that he could just be able to rebuild America after the depression would have been easier if he and Congress had gotten along, in the end, Herbert Hoover was the thirty first president of the United States and had served this country and had made sure that it got administered America as though anyone would have if the stock market had happened to crash, it’s good to think back to Hoover’s humanitarian works because he did help out a lot of people in serious need, he did all of this but still having a complete income of millions of dollars working as a mining engineer, he was creative about his ideas and with that he created such things as the Hoover Dam,

Caparo reached a shareholding of 29.9% of the company, at which point it made a general offer for the remaining shares, as the City Code's rules on takeovers required. Once it had control, Caparo found that Fidelity's accounts were in an even worse state than had been revealed by the directors or the auditors.

But also state that banks can find a new equilibrium without government intervention Bailout is not necessary “The banking industry can handle this mess internally and does not need subsidies.” (Bert Ely, a leading expert on banking and finance in the Washington policy community, 24 September 2008).

However I think that the for government intervention for example in wall street is bailing people and company out who reaped the rewards while they were successful and supply a safety net to them when they fail as is stated in Dam and Koetter Bank Bailouts and Moral Hazard: Evidence from Germany

The fiscal policy was put into order to prevent the economy from collapsing and to stabilize it. The policy was used to plan for the future, which would have still been in a great depression for longer than
Second Paper The cause of The Great Depression was attributed to the sloppy, careless behavior of banks, who were being too speculative in the way that they were investing their assets while simultaneously buying new issues with the intention of reselling them to the public. Companies were being given questionable loans in order to stay afloat by the same banks who held a stock interest in them! The banks, in turn, would then advise their clients to invest in the same companies that were being propped up by the banks. Eventually, this cycle blurred the lines of what banking was truly intended to do, and when compounded with the amount of risk involved with this type of behavior, the marked crashed.

Since there is no navy to protect the ships he has to hire people to protect his cargo which adds on to the total cost of the cargo. He is still an anti federalist though because he is worried after reading the constitution that since he is being taxed by two people his taxes will go up and he would be still losing customers.
