THIS IS NOT AN ESSAY.

questions for a group discussion. 5-6 sentences each.

Respond

America has had many economic difficulties, but nothing comes close to the sustained, deep troubles of the Great Depression. Republican President Herbert Hoover tried to address problems one way, Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt tried to address problems another way, and various other figures called for other solutions, some of them radical and even violent.

Using material from your readings:

  1. Compare one official response (either the Hoover administration’s OR the Roosevelt administration’s) to one of the more extremist responses. In your comparison, summarize the two responses that you are choosing to address and critique the value of these responses. (Remember, in an academic setting, critiquing is not the same as being overtly critical.)
  2. In addition, explain your own thoughts on how government should—or should not—address economic problems in today’s society
  3. Making reference to two specific incidences described in your reading, explain how America’s faith in itself was tested during the 1960s and 1970s. These incidents can both be domestic, or both international, or one can be domestic and one international.
  4. Do you think Americans are now more or less positive about their country now than they were back in this period, and why do you think this?
