    Without the new deal projects we may not have won WW2.

    1938 brought a recession, WWII pulled the US out of the Hoover depression once and for all, but by 1937 the economic outlook was vastly improved compared to 1933.

    None of the above.

    Many economic historians are now looking to the years immediately AFTER the war as the official "ending" of the GD.

    It's hard to think of a depression as being "over" during the war when you have shortages, rationing, much of your labor force conscripted, etc. etc.

    Yes, FDR made a quick response to the Fascists possible. Yet there were still apologists for Hitler among the rabid right; Japan attacking was the only thing that brought light to the blank spaces of their minds, the Japanese were not "white". Prescott Bush continued to do business with Nazi Germany until it was a crime to do so.

    This thread proves the irrelevancy of talking seriously about a complex subject on a partisan message
    board.

    The OP puts out a stupid poll that is full of false choices. The others that wish to discredit the New Deal show an ignorance that is truly pathetic. Their arguments are on such a low level tha tit is impossible to argue without giving them a textbook of information that they obviously will reject because they have refused to learn anything in the first place.

    The new Deal can stand some criticism but that put out here is simply absurd. Embarrassing!

    I've got "textbooks of information" supporting my claim; but you will probably just reject them, while not supporting your own claims.

    You're correct, however, in your statement about talking seriously about a complex subject on a partisan message board.

    Your dismissive post is just another example...

    Yes, now the evidence is overwhelming that FDR did not spend enough on his attempts to pump money into the economy. FDR needed to have war-time spending to end the depression.
    But here is a real question for junior historians: the first bill FDR submitted to his 100 days Congress was the bank bill, what was the second?

    The massive government spending program also known as WWII ended the Great Depression.

    Are you enjoying just making stuff up?

    Please show us the "evidence that is overwhelming." Economic historians have been moving away from the "WWII got us out of the GD" for years.

    Can you post some of that "overwhelming evidence?"

    Or do you just make stuff up?
