the great depression

The great depression was a long lasting downfall of the Western industrialized world. The great depression started right after the stock market shock of October 1929. Over a period of time businesses started to get slower and many people became unemployed. Those who were employed still had to face problems with low wadges. Many people had to buy credit and soon went into dept, and after a matter of time foreclosures rose. The road of recovery started when the south made dams for hydroelectric projects making permanent jobs that employed about 8.5 million people in 1943. After a while the economy started to improve a little per year.
