Handling the Great Depression Hoover and Roosevelt had very different ideas on how the Depression should be handled This was almost entirely a result of two important differences in their schemas Hoover was a Republican and considered conservative and had basically worked his way through life while Roosevelt was not only a Democrat he had basically been born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth Roosevelt was considered a liberal As one can easily see in many ways these two are complete opposites in fact if one looks at both their upbringing and their political affiliation it seems that Roosevelts and Hoovers policies must have been different in a great many ways Hoover was brought up in a poor family and worked almost his entire life When he was eight years old his parents died so he went to live with his uncle His uncle worked with him and later became rich Hoover had endured a great many hardships in his life and knew what it was like to do without In fact Hoover was very poor as a child although not necessarily living in poverty This effect on his schema would be rather interesting as it seems that he should have had a better understanding of how to handle problems with the poor than Roosevelt As Hoover was born poor one would think that he would know how to run the country like a business so that it would stay afloat however when confronted with the Depression he repeatedly cut taxes Hoover was basically a hard working Republican the quintessential self made man Roosevelt on the other hand had been born into a very rich family He grew up with education at Harvard had his own pony and sailboat and had everything basically taken care of for him in his childhood by his mother This gave him a sense of security of being able to do anything he wanted
