The Great Depression was a time the United States economy experienced hardship. Herbert Hoover was elected president of the United States in 1928. Under his administration in 1929, the stock market was negatively affected, peoples' businesses did not thrive, there were bank failures as well. Hoover strongly believed in putting people together to work to reduce the economic crisis than grant them constant relief. He established NGOs which further reduced the country's economy.
To suppress the Great Depression, Hoover created some programs and laws that he thought will restore the economy's buoyancy. These programs include The Reconstruction Finance Corporation, The Glass-Steagall Act, and The Emergency Relief and Construction Act. Despite his efforts to mitigate the harshness on the economy, the economy remained the same until the election of Roosevelt, who ushered in the "New deal".
