Con

The new Deal was bad because FDR didn't know what he was doing, however the poor people were principal victims of the new deal. One way the effect the people was that the taxes wen up. FDR didn't really help the great depression he jest put in programs.

Pro

The new deal did work he created new legislature and programs included a goal of relief, and the relief was aimed mostly toward the unemployed. He past the emergency banking act, congress had time to reorganize the banks as well as release more money on the market and ended up putting a deposit insurance on all the banks, making them seem much safer to the public.

Con

The new deal destroyed jobs for example, the National Industrial Recovery Act cut back production and forced wages above market levels, making it more expensive for employers to hire people. And because of that blacks alone were estimated to have lost some 500,000 jobs. Also The National Labor Relations Act gave unions monopoly bargaining power in workplaces and led to violent strikes and compulsory unionization of mass production industries.

Pro

w.e skinny black the new deal did work to fix this problem Roosevelt the Economy act, which got rid of $500 million from the federal budge and enforced the beer wine Revenue Act, which legalized the sale of weak beers and wines, heavily taxed them, and therefore made money for the government. Then to solve the unemployment crisis, Roosevelt started the Civilian conservation corps, which gave much of the nation's unemployed population job opportunities. Roosevelt also created FERA , the Federal Emergency Relief Agency, which increased unemployment assistance to the states and put the government in control of welfare. Roosevelt put into place to reach the new deal goal of relief , he improved the country greatly and therefore the goal was a huge success even if it didn't completely eliminate unemplyment from the US, because that would be and will always be impossible.

Con

these didn't increase the number of jobs in the economy, because the money spent on New Deal projects came from taxpayers who consequently had less money to spend on food, coats, cars, books and other things that would have stimulated the economy. The New Deal spending programs is they channeled money AWAY from the south, the poorest region in the United States. Poor people suffered from other high-minded New Deal policies like the Tennessee Valley Authority monopoly. FDR harm millions of poor people.
