The New Deal
|Date||1933 - 1939|
|Description||Populist social reform package enacted by Franklin D. Roosevelt against the opposition of the Money Trust|
After Smedley Butler exposed the Money Trust's business plot, FDR is believed to have reached a secret agreement not to prosecute (or even publicly name) the perpetrators, in return for their support of his New Deal policies. One exception to this deal might have been Andrew Mellon - at least FDR made sure he was chased by the Internal Revenue Service.
