Living within an economic crisis, leaves people with a lot to endure. The consequences are awful, as both the Great Depression and the Great Recession caused a crash in the stock market. Many Jobs were laid off as a result, particularly the primary and successful companies within the US. The economy was not only affected within the US but also globally. Without economic improvement, the US would simply not have been strong enough in the world. The poverty needed to be reduced, higher education needed to be pursued and health care needed improvement as well. Reflection of the past is greatly vital especially now that the economy is better off than it was when Roosevelt and Hoover were in the picture. President Barack Obama is now in their footsteps and his outlook seems to be quite similar to Roosevelt’s. The Great recession only occurred because attempts of help failed, regarding the Great Depression. This suggests that mistakes are being repeated to cause another economic crisis after the Great Depression; the Great Recession.
The history within the struggle that people lived through, is represented in this comic to enlighten people who may be younger than a teenager. The depths within the history of the United States are shown in this comic. World War I was greatly responsible for all of the occurrences that are displayed figuratively and literally.
In the introduction page, there are two boxes; one representing the Great Depression and another representing the Great Recession. There are also two clouds representing the two presidents. The sole reason why Roosevelt and Hoover are two clouds is because both are from the past, intended to look eerie and cloudy since they are no longer current. The comic is set up so that one can differentiate between each cloud and box because one will always be greater than the other. For instance, The Great Depression was greater than the Great Recession, therefore it is a rectangle withholding greater volume than the Great Recession’s cartoon representative. Furthermore, as Hoover was greater in size than Roosevelt, one can assume that their ghosts would reflect this size difference. That is how the two cloud cartoons are set up to be differentiated. Overall, this cartoon is meant to entertain and inform a young audience about all the factors that play into the Great Depression and the Great recession.
