Slide 10

    Roosevelt took a lot of inspiration for the New Deal from the writings of British economist Keynes, who believed that a government’s deficit spending could prime the economic pump and jump-start the economy. With the support of a panicked Democratic Congress, Roosevelt created most of the “alphabet agencies” of the First New Deal within his landmark First Hundred Days in office.

    Banking Acts

Slide 12

    On March 6, 1933, (two days after becoming president), Roosevelt declared a five-day national bank holiday to close banks temporarily. In Hoover’s presidency, around 1,500 banks closed per year. FDR hoped a short break would give running banks time to reopen more stably. A few days later, Congress passed the Emergency Banking Relief Act giving Roosevelt power to regulate banking transactions and foreign exchange.
