What were the causes and consequences of the Wall Street Crash?

The strength of America's economy in the 1920's came to a sudden end in October 1929 - even if the signs of problems had existed before the Wall Street Crash. Suddenly the 'glamour' of the Roaring Twenties disappeared and America was faced with a major crisis that was to impact countries as far away as Weimar Germany- a nation that had built up her economy on American loans. The huge wealth that appeared to exist in America in the 1920’s was an illusion. This unit examines what happened during this period.
