"In 1932, the United States had almost no provision by which the federal government could offer a helping hand to the victims of economic collapse. But with a staggering number of Americans out of work, soup kitchens and private charities were simply overwhelmed. Enter Franklin D. Roosevelt?a leader ready to act, armed with a New Deal for the country. Bill Moyers explores America?s Depression-era shift to the left in this video. He shows how the rapid growth of government made Washington the center for the nation?s recovery and a purveyor of hope to millions. It was the beginning of the welfare state?American style. (55 minutes)."
