What caused The Great Depression

The ultimate cause of the Great Depression is still the subject of
debate by

economists7. Although the

collapse of the New York Stock Exchange determined its timing there were
several

factors involved:

A fall in export prices and salesA fall in overseas loans leading
to a reduction in

Government capital8 spending fall in residential construction

This is talking about how the stock exchange collapsed it talks
about

1. Other countries not paying their loans back

2. People not building anything which means there was no money for
housing

3. When people lost money or had no money, it meant that they
would spend less at the shops which meant that the shops would lose money which
mean the shop keepers had to close their shops down and then they lost their
jobs.

Women and the Great Depression

Women and the Great Depression | The Great Depression Schrapel | Scoop.it

Women in
the Great Depression had it hard, their income was about $20 to $25 dollars a
week, this money had to cover many things like food, shelter, clothing the
women would have to do labour work which was hard but that’s how they got the
money to live.
