This is a 29 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Pre & Post & World Eras - The Great Depression. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Great Depression (1929-39) was the deepest and longest-lasting economic downturn in the history of the Western industrialized world. In the United States, the Great Depression began soon after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped out millions of investors.
Over the next several years, consumer spending and investment dropped, causing steep declines in industrial output and rising levels of unemployment as failing companies laid off workers. By 1933, when the Great Depression reached its peak, some 13 to 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half of the country’s banks had failed.
Relief and reform measures put into place by President Franklin D. Roosevelt helped lessen the worst effects of the Great Depression in the 1930s, the economy would not fully turn around until after 1939.
