Introduction

Did the New Deal policies during the period 1933-1941 in the USA bring about a recovery in the American economy? In my opinion the New Deal policies had definitely brought about a recovery in the American economy but some minor regions of economy had still struggled to fully recover even with government's help. Roosevelt has introduced very many different organisations and each of them dealt with a single problem. The most important ones were The Agricultural Adjustment Administration and the National Recovery Administration. The AAA helped the farmers by setting quotas and reducing farm productions in order to force prices upwards. The AAA has certainly helped farming which was a vital part of the economy. The NRA improved working conditions and set fair wages and sensible levels of production, this gave money for workers to spend without overproducing. ...read more.

The employers and workers had to make small contribution to a special fund each week so when the worker became unemployed he could use these money to help him out until he finds another job. This has increased people's confidence in the government and also when the banks opened in 1933 with people's money protected.

Conclusion

The industry had also benefited a lot from the policies. The NRA and Second New Deal measures strengthened the position of labour against the large American industrial giants. Trade unions were supported by the government which helped to stabilise the economy. Many of Franklin D Roosevelt's experiments were failures. The New Deal was one of his experiments and he sad that if 75 per cent of them produced beneficial results he would be satisfied. My point f view is that the New Deal policies were one of those successful. I think that The New Deal policies have helped American economy to recover much quicker but the turning point and the complete end of depression only came when America joined the Second World War in 1941.
