Most historians agree that the New Deal did not solve the problems of the Great Depression and that, in short, it failed to bring about full economic recovery. Nevertheless, it can be argued that the New Deal was significant in that it introduced a new political tradition and brought fundamental change in a number of areas to America.


Write a 350-word response to each of the following questions:


· What do you think is meant by the statements above? How did the New Deal change America?


· Do you think the New Deal changed the relationship between citizens and the federal government and, if so, how? For example, should the government help regulate the economy?
