Summary
In 1932, the United States had almost no provision by which the federal government could offer a helping hand to the victims of economic collapse. But with a staggering number of Americans out of work, soup kitchens and private charities were simply overwhelmed. Enter Franklin D. Roosevelt-a leader ready to act, armed with a New Deal for the country. Bill Moyers explores America's Depression-era shift to the left in this video. He shows how the rapid growth of government made Washington the center for the nation's recovery and a purveyor of hope to millions. It was the beginning of the welfare state-American style.
