alona(:'s insight:

Banks closed and millions of people became jobless and homeless when the markets collapsed that was the most stressing collapsed in history many businesses borrowed money to try to keep their business open but wasnt gone be able to pay it back so the businesses ended up getting shut down because everyone was building up on credit. The goal was to protect american farmers but it backfired farmers were not able to sale their goods or anything so farmers couldnt even keep there farms going or produce goods.   659 banks were closed in 1969 only a handful of wealthy people lasted through the collapse but not for long.

Primary Document #2 : Great depression letter.

Bank Distress During the Great Depression    


The consequences of bank distress for the economy during the Depression remain an area of unresolved controversy. Since John M. Keynes (1931) and Irving Fisher (1933), mac- roeconomists have argued that bank distress magnified the extent of the economic decline during the Depression. As the intermediaries controlling money and credit, banks were in a special position to transmit their distress to other sectors. But the mechanism through which banking distress mattered for the economy has been hotly contested.

Milton Friedman and Anna J. Schwartz (1963) saw the contraction in the money multi- plier— driven, in their view, by panicked depos- itors’ withdrawals of deposits—as the primary mechanism through which banking distress af- fected the real economy. They described the mechanism transmitting banking distress to the real sector as operating at the national level through changes in the aggregate supply of money and interest rates. Bank distress reduced the money supply available to the public either through the closure of banks and the consequent freezing of bank deposits, or the withdrawals of deposits by depositors that feared bank failure.

Ben S. Bernanke (1983), building on Fisher (1933), emphasized the transmission of mone- tary shocks via their effects on the balance sheets of borrowers and on the supply of credit by banks. Borrowers’ balance sheets were wors- ened by debt deflation as the result of fixed.
