Fdr's Economic Changes

Satisfactory Essays
President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a large number of changes in an attempt to fix the economy. Roosevelt want to see relief, recovery, and reform. He implemented the Banking Relief Act, tried to control the inflation, created jobs, and tried to control big business. Some of the things he did with the New Deal worked, while others failed. Some of the changes he made still exist in some form today, including Social Security and the FHA. He tried to put Americans back to work and wanted to help people keep their homes and their farms.
I think the Works Progress Administration was one of the most effective measures created. The program did not end the depression, but it gave the millions that had jobs through the program back some of their dignity.
