    Reckon for Part A it'll be Political and Social Tenisons (KKK etc) and Impact of WWII/Prosperity Post-WII. I reckon the Great Depression will be on why it intensified rather than causes, from looking at past papers! Good Luck everyone

    if you're doing the Edexcel paper, Roosevelt's policy will only appear in the part A section with reference to the opposition he received during his presidency and how successful they were ( these include opposition from the right & left wing, the supreme court, and individuals such as Huey Long and Charles Townsend . Other than that pat A will either focus on the economy during the 1920's ( the reason for the boom), social and political tensions ( KKK, Prohibition, immigration policies, the jazz age) or politics during the boom ( red scare, the coming of the women's suffrage , the republican government)
    Thanks a lot, last question now I swear hahaha if its a McCarthyism question as a 30 marker how would you get 4 paragraphs out of it. For example:

    Why did anti-communism affect US society so greatly in the years 1947-54? (june 14)
    Or
    How far do you agree with the view that McCarthyism had little impact on US society in the years 1950-54? (June 10)

    What factors would you choose for why it intensified? I haven't thought about that one!

    1: hoover's policies
    (Voluntarism, refusal to alter policies or offer aid, tried too much too late, Hawley smoot tariffs)
    2: international factors
    (Britain coming out of gold standard in 1931 which caused European banks to close and become unable to repay war debts, they suspended war debts in the hope it would cause foreign powers to buy from them but they didn't)
    3: underconsumption and overproduction
    (Throughout the 20s, rich got richer and poor got poorer. Rich had too much money in the bank and already had everything they wanted so didn't spend anymore money, the poor began to stop buying on hire purchase because they were in too much debt. This meant nobody was buying anything whilst companies like ford and GM motors continued producing the same as they were in the 20s)
    You could also talk about effects of industrialisation or the reluctance to spend from an increasingly scared and reluctant populace

    This is what I think I would include in a question asking about how the depression was prolonged.

    1. Insufficient gov intervention (mainly Hoover)
    2. Monetarist perspective (so the control of money supply, federal reserve etc)
    3. Foreign economic crisis (Hawley-Smoot tariff, war debts etc)
    4. Nature of US business (overproduction, limited competition etc)
    5. Extent of Depression (Geographical extent, absence of alternate employment etc)

    Hope this helps!

    It talk a bit about the problems arising from the depression then

    1. Hoover's Policies
    2. Monetary Policy
    3. International Situation

    That'd be enough for the whole essay, seeing as there is a ton on Hoover and Monetary policies

    I think so! You could include it if a question was asking you about the causes of the boom.

    ah ok thank you! Would the underlying problems then count as a counter argument?

    Oops I think I read this wrong! I think underlying problems in the 1920s (Unequal distribution of wealth etc) is actually a cause of the Great Depression?

    Sorry to confuse you!

    my predictions of the part a questions: social and political tensions during the boom years (restricted immigration/KKK/Prohibition/women's suffrage/the 1920s Red Scare - I highly doubt the last two though) and either opposition to the New Deal and FDR or post-ww2 prosperity
