The causes of the market crash is a twofold. Borrowing over 6 million dollars from speculators  put the banks in severe debt, which in turn,  inhibited ts customers from withdrawing their money. Secondly, numerous banks invested depositors’ money in the stock market, with the hopes of receiving a higher return so that they could use the money for future loans.

The success of a market is contingent to the financial input of its current investors. New customers also play a fundamental role in the banks business, without them its impossible for the bank to branch out.

Roosevelt is credited with lasting reform in the banking system such as the FDIC.
