GNP rapidly dropped to $74.2 billion in 1933 from $104.4 billion in this crisis, the number of unemployment were less than 150 million in the beginning, after that, it jumped to more than 1700 million. For this difficult period of time in the U.S. history, we called it the Great Depression. I need to mention these important things in the paper because they are the extra topics related to the background of the New Deal. Before Roosevelt became the president, president Hoover had nothing to do with the Great Depression.
