Hoover Economic Failure
After President Hoover stated the "final triumph over victory" the economy collapsed only a few
months later. A few months of the stocks being doubled, traders sold all their stocks, causing six
million stocks to change. This caused the stock market to take a bad hit. Six days later the market
completely fell apart. Traders were stuck with meaningless pieces of paper and no money. With no
money people build tent houses calling them "Hoovervilles" because they believed President
Hoover was the cause of the economies failure and no improving of it. Hoover's advisors considered

Essay on Hoover vs. Roosevelt
Matt Stefanko
APUS – Period 7
8 April 2010
Hoover vs. Roosevelt
Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt were both presidents during one of the most difficult times
in American history, the Great Depression. To try and ease the hardships that many Americans were
facing, each President developed many different programs. The different actions that each took to
lessen the blow of the depression classified them as either a liberal or conservative. If their actions
focused on helping the economy, they would be considered a conservative. If they were more
focused on helping the lives of the American people, they would be classified as a liberal. Neither
President can be labeled as strictly one. Although Franklin Roosevelt was ... Show more content on

E). He also mentions his firm stance on not raising taxes. These statements show his firm stance on
helping the American people, and therefore liberalism. The United States Government finances
between 1929 and 1941 also proves Roosevelt's liberal attitude. When Roosevelt became president
in 1932 the expenditures went up, the deficits increased, and the total public debt grew at an
incredible rate (Doc. F). This makes it seem like Roosevelt does not care about the economy. In his
speech at Syracuse New York four years later, he admits to being both a liberal and conservative. He
stated that "I am that kind of conservative because I am that kind of liberal (Doc. G). Roosevelt saw
the advantages of each side but he mainly stays toward liberalism throughout his presidency. This is
seen especially in his speech at Washington D.C. He takes a strong liberal stance and speaks the
needs of the people and how it is the government's job to help them (Doc. H). Roosevelt felt very
strongly about liberalism. Herbert Hoover was more conservative and Franklin Roosevelt was more
liberal, but they both also expressed views that crossed onto the other side. Therefore they cannot be
strictly labeled as either. Hoover started out as a strong conservative, but it is easy to

  • 7. Herbert Hoover Contributions Herbert Hoover is a debated figure in United States history. "Hoover is often remembered only for his unpopular presidency during the Great Depression."(Winkler, 21) Although this negative stigma haunts his legacy, Herbert Hoover was a kind, tenderhearted and generous man who did much good in his life before, during, and after his presidency. One of Hoover's greatest endeavors was his generosity and effort in behalf of the Belgian Relief program. The article highlights this event. Herbert Hoover was raised as a member of "The Quakers". This faith, instilled in him by his parents, helped mold Herbert into the morally straight man he eventually became. His father died from a heart ailment when Herbert was only six years old. Herbert therefore remembers his mother as the more prominent of the two parents. His mother's name was Hulda Hoover. "Hulda Hoover was quite accomplished and was something of a free spirit."(Winkler, 23) She regularly spoke at the Quaker meetings, something women did not have any place doing in the eyes of most folks of the time. Doing this portrayed her belief in women's rights, for which she devoted much of her life to fighting for. Although Hulda died early leaving Herbert an orphan at only nine, there is no doubt that her example and teachings were seen and followed by her son. Herbert then went to live with his aunt and uncle until he enrolled at Stanford University, graduating with a degree in geology and meeting his future wife, Lou Henry. Hard ...

The Hoover Dam helped to excel economic activity and the growing population in the West in spite of environmental problems.

The United States was in desperate need of financial aid and everyone was looking towards him. Although, Hoover only served one term from 1929 to 1933 which might indicate that it his presidency was not as good as thought to be. Herbert Clark Hoover was born in West Branch, Iowa on August 10, 1874 but was orphaned when he was nine because his father and mother died while he was a very young age. Hoover still managed to prosper in his studies, he studied geology at Stanford University, which is where he gained the nickname "chief". Hoover then served as a Secretary of Commerce for Warren G.

During the time, Herbert was considered an idol of ordinary people; he was raised from poor Iowa orphan to one of the most celebrated mining engineers. Even though there were murmurs worrying about that he had never held an elected public office, had a poor political touch, and was too thin–skinned to be an effective politician, most Americans considered him a hero who is able to solve any problems ahead. There was no better person to lead the country. However, in months later he was unfortunately faced the problem of the decade, which now called as "the Great Depression." In early days of the time, people did not worry too seriously about the economic situation, because they had Hoover as president in the White House. He was absolutely the last fortress of the people. However, the impregnable fortress was destroyed by the power of the Great Depression, and he could not lead as he wanted to do. He was not the 'Hero' that the people awaited for. The author describes of Hoover's childhood as the continuing infelicity. He lost his parents in his early age and had to motivate himself to have a better tomorrow out of working harder today.

While scalers worked primarily in the tunnels, the high scalers dangled on ropes, hundreds of feet above the canyon floor" (47) because the tunnel must be checked for loose rocks in the tunnel walls. The diversion tunnels were lined with intricate forms for concrete lining. Initially a base of concrete was poured.

Three months later, he succeeded in passing the Agricultural Marketing Act. In such little time, he had already put forth a resolution by providing farmers financial insurance, which helped sooth the economic unrest. President Herbert Hoover's Agricultural Marketing Act was an excellent first impression in exhibiting his proactivity and his endeavor to prevent the market crash.

Engineers felt that it was possible to block the Colorado River, which would allow for regulation of the water and also hydroelectric power. This massive project would not have been possible without the financing of a very large company. During the middle of the depression, it was extremely hard to find a company who was willing to front the money to start the project. One was found and for close to forty nine million dollars, the dam was financed by six different smaller construction companies. The first thing that needed to be constructed was roads that lead up to the dam site. Hoover dam isn't anywhere close to any towns or cities. The railroads didn't even lead up to it. The first order of business was to make the dam accessible by the cars and trains that would be bringing in the supplies necessary to make the dam.

  • 51. Hoover Dam Essay The struggling citizens of the southwestern states survived the Great Depression in great part due to the construction and final completion of the Hoover Dam, an engineering marvel. Due to the fact that the Hoover Dam is located on the boarder of Nevada and Arizona, it is extremely hot there. During this time period, the citizens living in these dry climates pushed for an irrigation system that would benefit these desert surroundings with flooding protection and something to act as a utility to help provide power to the growing cities nearby. The best answer to this was the Hoover Dam, which is located on the Colorado River on the boarder of Nevada and Arizona. In only five years, the completion of the Hoover Dam was constructed from 1931 to 1936. The costly construction of the Hoover Dam was a successful project that was completed during the Great Depression which contributed to the benefit of political policies, economic situations, and environmental concerns. The Hoover Dam is one of the largest man made dams ever constructed. The dam is known as an arch gravity dam because it is in the shape of a curve that is designed to direct the water in a certain path ("Hoover Dam Tours | GrandCanyonOnDemand.com" 1).

He was a brilliant man, but his ideas and beliefs would hurt his reputation and make him an inevitable one–term president. Firstly, Hoover passed many controversial bills during his time in office. An examples of this is the Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act of 1930. This law greatly increased a number of tariffs on a variety of imported goods. President Hoover signed the law because he thought it would reduce competition from foreign products. But other nations soon reacted by raising tariffs on imported goods, which increased the hurt put on the U.S. economy. Hoover believed that business, if left alone without government interference, would correct the economic conditions. He vetoed several bills aimed at relieving the Depression because he felt they gave the federal government too much power. This caused many people in the nation to dislike him a lot. People that lost their jobs and could not afford a home moved to a shabby section of town and built shacks from flattened tin cans and old crates. Groups of these shacks were called "Hoovervilles", a name that reflected the people 's anger and disappointment at President Herbert Hoover 's failure to end the Depression (Mitchener).

After World War I, many unemployed Veterans were unhappy because they never received their service bonuses. So roughly ten thousand World War I veterans marched on Washington and set up a shantytown as a type of demonstration (Goldfield, 723–724). They became known as the Bonus Army. Since the Bonus Army was technically squatting in public building, President Hoover decided to have them evicted. The manner in which the Veterans were evicted is the final nail in Hoover's metaphorical coffin. General Douglas McArthur led the charge to evict the Bonus Army, using infantry, cavalry, and even tanks to assault the shantytown (Goldfield, 724). "This assault provoked widespread outrage. The incident confirmed Hoover's public image as harsh and insensitive" (Goldfield, 724).

The dam demanded a huge amount of concrete that no one company could have met. As a result, a few concrete companies were built near by just for the construction of the dam. Barrels were used along with railroad cars to transport the concrete to the dam site (Hernan 23). The barrels were then picked up by invented cable system made specifically for the damn and dumped eight cubic yards at a time (¡§1936: Hoover¡¨). This cable system allowed for the barrels of concrete to be hauled down into the canyon in which the dam was being built.
