From a History Book (2001) SOURCE C: “ The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. This nation asks for action, and action now. Our greatest primary task is to put people to work. This problem can be solved in part by the government creating jobs and treating the task as we would treat the emergency of war…” Extract from Roosevelt’s first radio broadcast, March 1933 SOURCE A Source A: Cartoon showing Roosevelt as a man of action.
