What few people know about the program that “saved” America – Meg Jacobs

Explore the successes and failures of FDR’s New Deal, a set of legislation during the Great Depression which aimed to save the US economy.

In 1932, one in four Americans was unemployed, marking the highest unemployment rate in the country’s history. The Democratic presidential candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt promised a New Deal— a comprehensive set of legislation to support struggling citizens and put the country back to work. Meg Jacobs digs into the policies of this bold campaign and how it didn’t fully live up to its promises.
