RELIEF

 

          In the Federal Works Agency (FWA) it was the government's responsibility to make sure the people to carry out with promptly, effectively, without waste or lost motion. The goal of this program was to reduce expenditures, increase efficiency, and eliminate overlapping services. This program also supervised a numerous number of non-New Deal agencies. These consist of the Federal Fire Council, the Division of War Public Works, the Division of War Public Services, and the Bureau of Community Facilities.

          I could not find how my program ended. 

  • In his first 100 days, President Franklin Roosevelt proposed sweeping economic reforms, calling for a "New Deal" for Americans
  • Gross national product was up 34 percent, and unemployment had dropped from 25 percent to 14 percent
  • But Franklin Roosevelt faced criticism for increased government spending, unbalanced budgets, and what some perceived as moving the country toward socialism.
  • During the mid-1930s, several New Deal acts were declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Roosevelt retaliated by proposing to "pack" the court with justices more favorable to his reforms.
  • In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt stepped away from the unilateral principle of the Monroe Doctrine and established the Good Neighbor Policy with Latin America.
  • Roosevelt began a series of measures to help defend France and Britain from Nazi aggression, including the Lend-Lease agreement which Congress later passed the Lend-Lease Act in 1941.
  • During early 1941, with war raging in Europe, Franklin Roosevelt pushed to have the United States' factories become an "arsenal of democracy" for the Allies—France, Britain, and Russia.
  •  By 1938, negative publicity, a continuing sluggish economy, and Republican victories in mid-term elections virtually ended Roosevelt's ability to pass more reform legislation.
  • By 1930, Republicans were being blamed for the Great Depression and Franklin Roosevelt sensed opportunity
  • His upbeat, positive approach and personal charm helped him defeat Republican incumbent Herbert Hoover in November, 1932
