  • The FHA was created to stimulate the building

This is pre-eminently the time to speak the
truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor
need we shrink from facing conditions in our
country today. This great nation will endure as
it has endured, will revive and will prosper.
So first of all let me assert my firm belief
that the only thing we have to fear is fear
itself-nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror
which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat
into advance.
FDR First Inaugural Address

March 4, 1933

FDRs New Deal marked a turning point in America.
It was a revolutionary transformation of the
federal government from a body with limited
impact on the average person into a machine that
left few Americans untouched.
