Following his victory in the 1932 presidential election, Franklin D. Roosevelt entered into office in the midst of the worst economic recession in the country’s history. In the previous decade, wealth inequality, farm overproduction, deregulation, bank failure, and import-export ratios had spiraled the economy into depression. As members of Roosevelt’s cabinet, delegates must redefine the role the government plays in the economy, confront the corporate distrust, and renew faith in the institutions that uphold the economy. In the midst of these problems, the world is more volatile than ever. In the wake of the Great War, extreme fascist movements are taking over fledgling democracies that had represented hope for a more free world.

It is the role of delegates to balance the various interests to maintain political support while taking adequate action to direct the country to recovery.
