Stock brokers and clients go to bank to claim their money
In the 1920's the economy was booming and there was growth in both industry and consumerism. Industrialists played a big role in the booming economy and they also had most of the money. It was a positive and upbeat time except for the farmers as they just watched the rural areas grow bigger than them, which did indeed create complaints by farmers. Stock brokers were another big part to everything as they were somewhat responsible with everyone's money and making sure they talk to there client to keep they're money in tacked. Everything seemed to be going amazing but in 1929 the money, stocks, everything that had to do with money, just crashed. This led to the bust in the 1930's, as businesses closed along with many factories which resulted in a higher unemployment rate. Eventually all of this resulted in the second world war.

In the 1920's the city was where you wanted to be especially if you were trying to start over or "live big." There was much opportunity in the cities, mainly for men, but some women had the chance men had. At home the women cared for the children and just made sure the house was clean and make everything look nice. The women almost always cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the rest of the family. Urban life for the farmers was very tough. It was extremely hard to gain money and pay it back to whoever they owed. In the 1930's the wealthy weren't affected at all as they lost some money but weren't in bad of a condition as the middle class. The middle class became like the poor in the 1920's and the poor in the 1930's had it even worse than in the 1920's.

His efforts didn't seem like he had put any effort into them and his plan and his thought process didn't make much sense. In result the "bonus army," former soldiers who wanted the money owed to them, rioted against the white house/government and many were injured, some killed. Then when Franklin D. Roosevelt came to the rescue and applied the new deal which included reform, recovery, and relief. Not only was the the new deal added but the Laissez Faire way of government was gone.
