Map of Koonoomoo for The nation and the world shifted focus in 1938 from the economic problems on the home front to the growing clouds of war worldwide. After 1938, the Roosevelt administration focused on maintaining existing programs and keeping a watchful eye on international events. The New Deal is not considered a success in economic terms, not because of what was done but because the programs did not go far enough. Roosevelt acted in a conservative manner; much higher federal spending to stimulate consumption would have been needed to end the Depression. In fact, higher federal spending on the military during World War II did end the Depression. In the terms of solidifying the federal government’s relationship with the average citizen, however, the New Deal was a great success because it set basic standards for living in America and the federal government became a guarantor of those standards.
