Was the New Deal a Good Deal?
The New Deal was introduced by President Franklin Roosevelt’s administration in 1932.
His promise to help the American people out of the Great Depression included the creation of dozens of government agencies that would increase employment rates, stabilize and regulate the economy, and provide relief for Americans who were suffering financially. According to Tennessee State Historian Dr. Carroll Van West, “Tennesseans in the 1930s understood, to different degrees of course, that the New Deal changed their relationship with the federal government. They were exchanging local control and traditions for federal money and expertise. People of the Depression decade realized they were experiencing change—some of it good, some of it indifferent, and some of it for the worse.
