Critque the efficiency of of FDR\'s administration at alleviating the suffering


of the great Depression


FDR truely tried to help the people and wanted to make a change. He was mostly
successfull with his New Deal Program. Each Program helped a different part of
the the country and its people. Focusing only on some programs which were in
the long list of programs in the New Deal program, it shows that it helped. The
FHA or better known as the Federal Housing Administration helped people at that
time who were in a middle class position and wanted to build or buy a new home

incorporated into the new Deapartment of Housing and Urban Development also
known as HUD. The Office continued its role as mortgage guarantor and widened
it area of responsibilty to include mortgages lent to the owners of multifamily
dwellings and to public housing authorities as well as individual homeowners.

Administration. This program is the most known program from the New Deal
program today. And we know that is was without question successfull. It secured
people\'s earned money so when they retire they still get money and don\'t

It not only helps the people but also helps the government. The government
takes the money and invests it in secure investments or works with it in a
different way and gets money from the intrest of the money that the government
doesn\'t owe.

Today the government has many problems with the social security but inspite
that this program is now 62 years old, and it must have been successfull to be
