What happened in the great depression?


The depression was brought about by a number of serious weaknesses in the economy. In spite of the fact that the 1920s showed up superficially to be a prosperous time, salary was unevenly distributed. The wealthy made enormous profits, however an ever increasing number of Americans spent more than they earned, and farmers faced low prices and heavy debt. The lingering impact of World War I (1914-1918) caused economic or financial problems in many countries, as Europe battled to pay war debts and reparations. These issues contributed to the crisis that began the Great Depression.
