Responses to the Great Depression Decolonization

  • The enormous economic decline led many western governments to take greater control over their nation’s economies.

  • Many saw the Depression as evidence that democratic governments and capitalism were incapable of solving problems or meeting the needs of modern society.

Us reaction to the depression l.jpg
US reaction to the Depression Decolonization

  • Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt the US enacted a reform program known as the New Deal.

  • The New Deal expanded government powers and regulated the US economy more closely than ever before.

  • Programs such as Social Security were designed to help Americans through the worst effects of the Great Depression and, it was hoped, prevent another.

  • France’s government was led by the Popular Front, a mixture of socialist and moderate parties.

  • These governments attempted to help end the Depression by taking more power over their economies

The soviet union l.jpg
The Soviet Union Decolonization

  • Because its economy was independent and did not depend on external trade, the Soviet Union had few economic troubles during the 1930s.

  • Joseph Stalin boasted that this demonstrated the superiority of socialism over capitalism, and some Westerners agreed.

  • Stalin’s Five Year Plans and focus on heavy industry and militarization made the Soviet Union a powerful force.

Germany l.jpg
Germany Decolonization

  • After World War I Germany’s economy was devastated, its territory shrunken, and its military force depleted.

  • Many Germans felt their country had been badly treated by the Treaty of Versailles, and were eager for revenge.

  • The Great Depression made Germany’s situation worse, and many Germans looked to new leadership.
