Momentus: The New Deal

Categories Graphic Design, IllustrationPosted on

Shortly after the stock market crash of 1929 sunk the United States economy into its worst depression in history, Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the largely democratic US Congress passed a series of economic programs seeking to focus on providing “relief, recovery, and reform.” Together, these programs became known as the New Deal. Over the course of several years, many of the New Deal’s policies were called into question by a number of republicans who saw it as an inhibitor of economic growth. After regaining control of the Congress in 1938, Republicans began shutting down New Deal programs left and right. To this day, the FDIC, FCIC, FHA, TVA, SSA, and SEC are still intact.
