From 1929 to 1939, the US experienced the longest and worst economic depression in its history and the first in which the federal government acted decisively to reverse it. UVM History Professor Emeritus Mark A. Stoler discusses how Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal changed the government’s role in the economy and affected the lives of Americans in ways that are still with us today.
