Boom to Bust By yukta Murjani

Economy for business owners

Economy in the 1920s was booming and business owners were doing great. That was thanks to consumerism and advertising in the 1920.
In the 1930s business owners had to lay off their workers and lost their jobs. The economy crashing led to them begging for jobs in 1930s.

In the 1920s the economy was doing great. Business owners were very wealthy. They were earning a lot of money at the time. The stock market was accelerating everyday. It was a great time for them. That all changed when the stock market crashed in the 1930s. Almost the entire country had become poor. Business owners suffered as well during this period. They had to lay off workers because they couldn't afford to pay them. They had to close down their business because no body was buying their goods. Which is why they had no jobs and no money. There money was in banks but all the money in banks were gone. Some ended up homeless with no money to buy food. The economy went from doing amazing to doing horrible in the 1930s.

Government role in a farmers life


During the 1920s farmers suffered from having too many crops left over. They were not selling their crops anymore which caused overproduction. The government did not help them through this.


The government in the 1920s decided to change and help the farmers. The government put in new services under The New Deal to get the Farmers back on track.

During the 1920s Farmers suffered through a tragic disaster. They had first over produced which made them loose lots of money. The overproduction and surplus put them in a horrifying situation. After WWI they did not want their crops. So that meant all of this left over crops for no use. They had no money to continue and were struggling to survive. The government did not help the situation. They did nothing to help the farmers and they did not care what they were going through. After the huge Dust Bowl and the damage the Dust Bowl did the government decided to help. They helped by services like AAA which made the government pay farmers for getting rid of some crops and no making anymore. The government role change from the 1920 to 1930 for a farmers life. They did not help in the 1920 but in 1930 they did.

Home life for women


During the 1920s home life for women was stress free. New technology rose to help women out at home. They were happy and enjoying a life at home. Almost everything at the house was on credit.


During the 1930s, the Great Depression hanged everything. Woman lost homes and sold all new technology. They stayed home taking care of children and trying to survive.

During the 1920s home life was fascinating . There was new technology that came out in the 1920s which made home life more pleasant and easier. Mainly a women's life at home improved significantly during the 1920s. Their job of cooking, cleaning and taking care of children became much simpler. They bought all of these new innovations on credit, buy now pay later. Which resulted in the stock market crashing. Women's husbands lost jobs and many lost homes. During the 1930s women had to do twice the work and lost all their new innovations. They had to work really hard trying to find a home and a place to rest for the night. They had no happiness at home during the 1930s.

Leisure time for African Americans


In the 1920s African Americans were having a very enjoyable time. They spent there days outside expressing their talent and culture in Harlem.


That happiness changed after the Great Depression. They lost all money so could not go out for pleasure. Instead they spend time hunting for job opportunities.

The 1920s for African Americans was filled with delight. There were many new opportunities for African Americans. While some may argue that they were still discriminated in the 1920s however, they were allowed to express their talent. That was due to Harlem Renaissance, where they can show whites their creativity and be themselves. African Americans were out enjoying there lives everyday. They were going to speakeasies and having lots of fun. All of that excitement changed in the 1930s. Instead african americans were out trying to look for jobs and a home. They spent there time begging for food and money. There was no more cheer or happiness. There was no more going to clubs, playing music and dancing. They were instead listening to music on the streets on the radio. They had no money to go out anywhere. African Americans were enjoying life and going out having fun every night in the 1920s. The 1930s was the complete opposite and they could not go out anywhere.
