New Deal Programs – Relief, Recovery, Reform

AP Focus: The Great Depression is a transformative event on many levels. It puts the government in the lives of people and provides security (structural support) to them. We did not employ a socialist government. We did not abandon capitalism. Some claimed FDR went too far, others claimed he did not go far enough. We worked within the system to address economic failures (a continuation of progressive ideals)
