1928 Herbert Hoover was elected as the U.S president. 1929 The Great Depression snapped U.S mainly because of the stocks market crashed. The Great Depression gave Hoover a pretty tough time because economic had a huge drop and a lot of Americans were bankrupts. Therefore people in America were having difficult time for their livings.
Herbert Hoover thought of some policies to improve America. For example he signed the Hawley-Smooth Tariff bill on 17th June 1930, by raising tariffs on products that were produced in U.S and traded to other countries. The tariff raised the most on agricultural products. Herbert Agricultural Marketing Act did bring little hopes to American Farmers.
