FDR's new deal was a success because it helped the United States get out of the Great Depression. Roosevelt tried to fix the economy by enacting the three R's, which stood for relief,reform, and recovery, which had an immense success.

well i disagree because the FDR's New Deal harmed millions of poor people.The mounting evidence,however,makes clear that poor people were principal victims of the New Deal and this has been developed by dozens of economists including two Nobel Prize winners.......so ha.....beat that.....

Yea but Hoover left a lot of problems that Roosevelt had to fix, including the banks. He also aimed mostly toward the unemployed because it was higher when Hoover was president. Roosevelt helped avoid banks to collapse and helped them reopen by establishing the bank holiday. This bank holiday helped out the banks, by allowing them take a break and be able to gain back money.

poor people suffered from other minded New Deal policies also. FDR might have not intended to harm millions of poor people , but thats what happened. We should evaluate government policies according to their actual consequences, not their good intentions............................................................................................................................................... ......................................................................................................................................

FDR's intentions were good and they caused good things to happen. The improvements that Roosevelt made and the help that he gave to the country helped the country get out of the Great Depression. Roosevelt was only president for three terms and he achieved so much, that it was remarkable.

I find it funny how all of the people debating this topic are in Depue, Illinois, United States. They're also all age 16, 17, and 18. Of course it's a coincidence! (Sarcasm)
