BUST

This picture represents the stock market. I chose the stock market for the bust period because it crashed losing around 30 billion dollars.
This is a picture of the dust bowl. I chose the Dust Bowl for the bust period because it dried out the soil on farm lands putting farmers out of jobs. Farmers couldn’t produce crops anymore so there was no way for them to make money.
This is a picture of a shantytown. I chose shantytowns for the bust period because it was where homeless people lived. They would build shacks on unused land and make communities.
