Abstract

The United States went through a period of severe economic decline during the 1930s, a period commonly called the Great Depression. The exact cause for this Depression, especially after a period of prosperity such as the 1920s, is warmly debated among economists. Such a severe economic collapse had never occurred before. There are many possible explanations.
