The attempts to bring the country and its people out of the Dust-bowl of despair only make things worse.   The nation of wealth and prosperity in the post World War I era suddenly finds itself scrambling to keep its own people from starving in the streets while the world watches on. The attempts to right the ship serve as a lesson to future generations on the danger of government power-grabbing; even when fueled by the most noble of intentions.   Democracy is challenged on a global stage after it nearly collapsed from the Civil war. America pays a painful price to learn the lessons of economics and what happens when the Government takes action and control despite honest intentions.     Sources Used:
