About This Quiz

Are you an FDR fan? Do you know a lot about the New Deal? We bet you don't know enough to ace this quiz.

The New Deal was a series of programs and legislation put into place by the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, known as FDR. FDR ran on the New Deal platform during the 1932 presidential election and won based on his ability to get the nation behind his promise to implement "a new deal for the American people." Because The Great Depression, which began with the stock market crash on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, had resulted in massive unemployment and homelessness, the nation's voters were primed and ready to accept FDR's new policies.

Although it is true that not all of the policies put into effect during the New Deal era were successful, some of them remain in play today. And, even though it would be nice to assume that the New Deal single-handedly wiped out the effects of The Great Depression, it wasn't until the beginning of World War II, and the economic production increase that the war brought, that the economy recovered. However, New Deal policies did put important social and economic restraints and benefits into play.
