The 2007-2009 economic recession and has been voted as one of the severe economic downturns. However, its effects cannot match those of 1930 Great Depression as judged by (Thiede and Monnat 892). The Great depression of 1930 started in the United States in 1929 and ended in 1939. Even the effects of this economic downturn were felt all over the world, the United States was most hit by the disastrous effects of Great Depression. The financial crisis, led  high unemployment rates in the 1930s. The main cause of great depression was stock market crash of 1929 that created that series of events that would America in the longest economic recession ever.

With severe poor economic performance repercussion and decline in the international trade, the key industries such as farming and construction came to a halt and as result unemployment reached the highest peak. Joblessness in the United States worsened since the Great Depression significantly hit primary sectors of the economy and alternative employment sources. Majority switched to mining and farming as the only sources of their livelihoods.

Unmanageable deflation and indebtedness further increased the adverse effects of joblessness. The entrepreneurs and investors were threatened by debt liquidation panic mode and therefore, ended up selling business assets. However, this did not save the situation since business worth, and assets prices dropped drastically leaving businesses bankrupt and hence worsening the level of unemployment in the country. Upon employees losing their jobs, family members were compelled to seek alternative means to earn a living.  This was followed by the hoarding practices among the business people because according to them the economic future of the country was unpredictable.
