20. What was President Hoover’s policy toward Latin AmericaChapter #33: The Great Depression and the New Deal – Big Picture Themes


1. FDR quickly got many New Deal programs passed. The general philosophy was: the government will start massive projects and spend huge quantities of money, and this will “jump-start” the economy.

2. These programs hit on all walks of life. Emphasis was placed on creating jobs, housing, construction projects, and restoring confidence in banks.

3. Though FDR was popular, there were critics to the New Deal—some saying it did too much, others that it did too little.

4. FDR pretty much had his way with Congress, until he asked for more Supreme Court judges and was finally told, “No.”

5. All told, though the New Deal may have helped the economy a bit, it did not boost the U.S. from the Depression.
