How did the Great Depression affect Americans? ‐‐‐‐How was the effect different in the cities and the rural areas?  ‐‐‐‐What was the effect on women? minorities? children? Why did President Hoover's policies fail to solve the economic crisis?  ‐‐‐‐Why was President Hoover reluctant to interfere with the economy?  ‐‐‐‐What measures did he take initially? How did his approach change over time? 1

  • 6. Our story begins in here: quot;By adherence to the principles of decentralized self‐government, ordered liberty, equal opportunity, and freedom to the  individual, our American experiment in human welfare has yielded a degree of well‐being unparalleled in all the world. It has never  come nearer to the abolition of poverty, to the abolition of fear of want, than human has ever reached before.quot; ‐‐‐Herbert Hoover, 1928 6
  • 7. But to understand our story, you need to consider the context:  How had the United States changed/developed since the turn of the century?  7
  • 8. You also need a little big of economics:  Lesson #1: Supply and Demand If the supply of goods increases and consumer demand stays the same, prices will drop.  If consumer demand increases and the supply remains the same, prices will rise.  If Asics makes too many shoes and they aren't selling, what should Asics do?  8
  • 9. Lesson #2: Say's Law (1920s) Surplus will always disappear because prices will come down until everything gets  bought.  3G iPhones = $300 Apple has a surplus of 1 million iPhones.  Consumers (who have maxed our their credit cards) aren't buying. According to Say's law, what will Apple do?  9
