HIS 303 Week 4 DQ 1 The New Deal

Short description

Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal greatly expanded the federal government’s role in the country’s domestic and economic affairs, which led to a long-running constitutional crisis in the 1930sthat remains controversial to this day. Although the Supreme Court threw out several New Deal programs, others survived and laid the foundation for later developments over the next three decades. Assess the New Deal as a revolution in constitutionalism.

Assess the New Deal as a revolution in constitutionalism. What objections did opponents of the New Deal raise? How and why did the Supreme Court’s stance on the New Deal change over time? How did Roosevelt’s successors expand on the New Deal and what might explain why these later measures generally encountered less resistance than the New Deal itself?

Summarizing your responses to the questions above, did the New Deal represent a revolution in understandings of and practices under the Constitution? If so, was this development beneficial or detrimental to the American people?

In responding to this question, draw from the two following documents:
 a. Mason, A. T. (Oct., 1934). Has the Supreme Court abdicated? The North American review, 238 (4), 353-360. Retrieved from the JSTOR database. b. Strout, R. L. (Dec., 1933). The New Deal and the Supreme Court. The North American review, 236 (6), 484-491. Retrieved from the JSTOR database.
