New Deal

From dKosopedia

The New Deal was a collection of programs instituted during the Presidency of Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression that fundamentally changed the scope of activities conducted by the federal government. This included "make work" programs such as the Civilian Conservation Corps which were later abandoned, but also fundamental changes in the social compact of the nation such as Social Security that provided the foundation of the American verison of the welfare state.
