‘Buddy, can you spare a dime?’ ~ an introduction to The Great Depression.

Our study of Roosevelt and the New Deal starts in with the consequences of the Wall Street Crash in 1929 but I do not believe that you can understand this without understanding what caused it. The attached document has a sequence of links for clips for a very good, recent BBC documentary on the Wall Street Crash. I would like you watch the clips through. You do not need to take notes on this because it is only background and I will provide you with some when we discuss it next lesson.
