Research Paper President Obama's New Deal vs. President Roosevelt's New Deal The original new deal that was proposed by President Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930's during the great depression many columnists believe that it has been revamped into something that President Barack Obama believes can jumpstart the American economy. Since both of these men are from the Democratic Party and were voted into office by the American people under the promise that they would and could help jumpstart the economy that would lead to a decrease in unemployment. They both had a huge responsibility to the American people to hit the ground running. And although the similarities of the deals are almost to uncanny to be coincidence they each had key ideas on how to get the American people back into the workforce. I will be focusing on just a few key areas that have been struck due to the recession for President Obama and the Great Depression for President Roosevelt and how each man either fixed the problem or is attempting to.
Roosevelt realized that if he kept the banks open, panicked depositors would withdraw their money and more banks would fail. On March 6, FDR declared a "bank holiday." Meanwhile, he and his Brain Trust, a group of academics and economic theorists he had brought to the White House, crafted the Emergency Banking Act, a plan which would close down insolvent banks and reorganize and reopen those banks strong enough to survive. The speed with which the Emergency Banking Act bill was written, passed by Congress, and put into practice typified the frenetic pace of the Hundred Days. Roosevelt delivered a draft of the act to the House of Representatives on March 9.
These consequences were significant for many reasons, particularly due to their impact on society, allies and the opposition, as well as inducing the beginning of WWII. The first cause of Hitler becoming Chancellor was Germany signing the Treaty of Versailles in June of 1919. After the end of WWI, the allies forced Germany to sign a peace treaty. In this treaty Germany was forced to take the blame for the War, pay reparations (which were set at 6.6 billion pounds in April 1921) as well as reducing their army to 100,000 men, getting rid of any air force, as well as being limited to 6 battleships. Germany also lost all overseas colonies, and their boundaries within Europe were reduced, losing in total 13.5% of their territory, which included losing 7 million people to neighbouring countries.
Von papen arranged another election hoping to win more support from the reichstag, however, he fell short once more to the Nazis, obtaining an even fewer amount of seats. Von Papen out of desperate nature, asked Hindenburg to close down the Reichstag and rule by decree. Von Schleicer warned Hindenburg that Von papen government would lead to civil war and an increase of violence between Nazis and communists, so Von Schleicer instead, was appointed chancellor. This position didn't last even two months and Von Papen was furious, negotiating with Hitler to allow him position of Chancellor with Papen himself Vice Chancellor. Hindenburg refused a Nazi government once more.
Slightly less dramatically, Tony Blair faced a large rebellion in September 2006 led by ministers such as Tom Watson that forced him to promise to step down after a year had passed. Therefore party pressure has been able to bring down the most able Prime Ministers of recent years, however in both cases the parties only acted because the Prime Minister was increasingly unpopular and were therefore damaging their election prospects. However this was not the case with Gordon Brown in the 2010 general election campaign when after he spoke to a voter in he was still wearing a broadcast microphone and was heard to say "that was a disaster" and when asked what she said, he replied: "Ugh everything! She's just a sort of bigoted woman." This along with his almost comically poor television persona lead to Brown becoming unpopular, yet still he
He resigned on June 28, 1949, because of heart health issues. Wagner became chairman of the Senate Banking and Currency Committee during the New Deal era. His two most known accomplishments were enacted into law in 1935. One was the Social Security Act which provided pensions to American Senior citizens. The other law was the National Labor Relations Act[->11] (also known as the Wagner Act) in 1935.
Between 1902 and 1918, Winston Churchill experienced many highs and lows in politics, from being elected as Home Secretary in 1910 to the disastrous Gallipoli campaign of 1915. But was Churchill truly a political failure? Between 1906 and 1910, it can be seen that Churchill was a great believer in social reform. Social reform is a set of political changes that are designed to bring about changes in everyday society. He joined a group of young reformers, a group which included David Lloyd George, who was to be Prime Minister through the First World War.
Then finally on October 29,1929th the stock market crashed, because no one was buying and this directly led to the Great Depression. After the Stock market crashed not even 2 months later, the stock holders had lost more than forty billion dollars. Though the market had once again began to come of its losses back by the end of 1930, it was not enough and America entered what we now know as The Great Depression. After the stock market

Ethical Challenges and Agency Issue Cheryl Monson, Davied Mull, Gloria Akemu, Kristin Reffalt, Lisa Cook ACC/557 April 30, 2012 Rashida Heard, CPA Ethical Challenges and Agency Issue The failures of corporate America over the past century have led to government intervention in the form of the Securities Acts of 1933 and 1934, and in 1991 the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s Guidelines for Organizational Defendants (FSGO) was published. The FSGO stated that an organization was responsible for any illegal acts committed by its employees, if the employees were acting within their official capacity. These guidelines are credited for an increase in corporate ethics programs that could result in lighter sentences and a lower risk of probation (Johnson, 2004). Despite these guidelines, the corporate world was rocked by the Enron and WorldCom scandals leading to more government intervention in the form of the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX).
