Example text

The worst of the Depression was over due to strong leadership under Roosevelt and a surge in demand stemming from the government. ECONOMIC THEORIES OF THE DAY Neoclassical economic theory, the economic theory that grew out of classical economics in the 1870s and predominated until the late 1930s, viewed individuals as rational actors in a world where equilibrium is a ­plausible and natural outcome. The economy was viewed as moving toward e­ quilibrium, such that policy implications held that the government should allow free markets to flourish, and should not intervene.

4 The problem was that the supply of gold was fixed, and as countries increased dollar reserves, the ratio of dollars to gold increased, which meant that the dollar price of gold would have had to be increased over time in order to maintain the Bretton Woods exchange rate system. Because of this, Group of Ten (G-­10) governments stopped trying to control the price of gold for private transactions, and foreign central banks agreed not to sell in the gold market for arbitrage gains. The political economy that had focused on systemic economic ­cooperation and control had shifted since the beginning of the Bretton Woods period, with an increasing emphasis on free movement of capital in the US in the 1960s, and with the view that technical solutions, such as short-­term capital controls, could resolve global imbalances.

New Deal policies did not always achieve their lofty goals but were well intentioned and certainly more productive, as a whole, than Hoover’s meager endeavors. First, we review President Hoover’s policies, then turn to the diverse policies of his successor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR). Monetary policy in immediate response to the contraction has been discussed above. Monetary policy under Hoover was minimal and mainly ineffective. Hoover’s initial response to the crisis was to revert to traditional policies of balancing the budget, which pushed the economy into further decline.
