The Biggest Game-Changing Moments of the Twentieth Century: The Great Depression and World War II
By BBC News Magazine (UK) Published: Tuesday, December 02, 2017 18:38:17From 1930 to 1945, there were four decades when unemployment in the United States declined by 15% or more.
This was the Great Depression, which was one of the most brutal of the Great War.
It was the most destructive of the 20th century, with more than three million deaths.
But the Great Recession of 2008-09 and its aftermath has made the downturn a defining moment for our country.
It’s the biggest financial crisis since the Great Panic of 1873, with the US economy having contracted by more than 5% since the beginning of the year.
Its impact is profound.
It has reduced the standard of living of many Americans.
But it also means that the Great Society programs of the 1950s and 1960s are also in crisis.
The first of those programs was Medicare.
It is the largest and most successful social security programme in the world, covering more than 9 million Americans.
But because of the crisis in 2008-2009, Medicare was cut back by more the last two years of President Barack Obama’s term.
Its biggest beneficiaries have been the elderly.
Medicare has helped to alleviate some of the burden on the elderly and their families, and it has helped the working poor as well.
Its biggest shortfall was in disability payments, which are made by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
In the long run, the biggest impact on the nation’s long-term health and welfare will be the loss of Medicare’s financial support for disability care.
It may be a more dramatic blow to the elderly than any of the financial crises of the past.
It’s the most important program of its kind in the history of the US, and the first to provide the elderly with comprehensive financial support.
For most Americans, the Great Recovery from the Great Loss of Manufacturing Jobs of the 1930s came as a shock.
In 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt declared the Great Crash of 1929 to be the worst economic disaster since the Second World War.
It wiped out the US industrial sector and brought unemployment to historic lows.
But it did not wipe out the Great Gatsby era.
The Great Depression had already begun.
The Depression had been raging for years, with unemployment reaching historic highs of nearly 13% in 1933 and 4.5% in 1934.
Unemployment was still high at the time.
The Great Recession hit in April 2009, and, at the peak of the recession, there was a whopping 15.4 million people unemployed.
For the first time in nearly 40 years, the number of unemployed people was approaching the levels of the 1920s.
The number of Americans receiving food stamps increased from 1.5 million in December 2009 to 4.9 million in February 2011.
Since the Great Wall Street Crash of 2008, Americans have lost more than 7 million jobs.
That’s equivalent to the entire US population of Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom.
It also means the US is no longer a powerhouse economy.
As the Great De-Stagnation sets in, we’re now facing a Great Hunger.
The US has lost a staggering 1.8 billion people, which is equivalent to more than half of the population of the United Arab Emirates.
That includes the millions of people who have been forced from their homes, or are on the verge of losing their homes.
The vast majority of these people are living in poverty.
What does this mean for America’s future?
In the years ahead, it’s important to understand that this is not just a crisis of a financial nature, but a crisis about the economy.
It means that we are going to have a huge unemployment crisis.
We’re going to be living in a system where people are unable to find work, or where the job market is so tight that we have to look for work.
In this economic climate, many people are going back to work.
The job market for those with the skills and the knowledge to do the jobs that the economy needs to sustain itself is likely to be stable or even expand.
But the problem will grow worse as more and more people are thrown out of work.
Millions of Americans will be laid off from their jobs because of their inability to find and retain new ones.
This will be devastating to the economy as a whole.
In a world where wages are stagnant or falling, it will lead to greater unemployment.
That’s because those who are unemployed are also less likely to get another job.
If they are unable or unwilling to find another job, they’re likely to continue to be on public assistance.
So the Great Hunger will be a drag on the economy for decades to come.
The biggest threat to our economy and society is going to come from people who are unable and unwilling to work, and from those who cannot find a job at all.
This is why the Great Crisis is a major turning point for
