Government interference was the cause of the Great Depression and that interference was bipartisan. One way our government interfered was when Republicans passed and Pres. Hoover signed into law the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930. The authors of the bill were Republicans. (This is a long article.) Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930 American involvement in WWII did not solve the economic problems that started in the 1920's. Those problems as the article states were also caused by the interference of the Federal Reserve Bank, a quasi-official part our government.
