It was sad but interesting to read about The Great Depression. It occurred because of the 1929 Stock market crash and it really changed the economy forever. It really made us realize what we never want to occur again, even though it almost already has happened again. The Great Depression lasted from 1929-1939, during that time so many people lost their jobs, their homes, and really just couldn’t afford to do anything. The Great Depression affected the world. It changed our trading between other countries, which means we were supplying them with less money, while we were getting less goods.
