After The Great Depression, what exactly influenced US economic recovery?
The largest spark that restarted the American economic recovery after the Great Depression was World War II. In the beginning, our European allies relied on arms, vehicles, and ships from the United States, bringing much needed investment and work to the nation. As the country entered the fighting, many men were required for deployment, many were needed on the home front for industry, and many women were also employed. This drastically lowered unemployment and gave people salaries, which they could then put back into the economy. This was the largest catalyst for American recovery, but FDR’s New Deal, which provided funds for many large scale building projects and reformed many aspects of regulation, provided a solid basis for the recovery.
