Abstract

This thesis will examine possible determinants of Federal Reserve behavior during the Great Depression. It starts with the assumption that economic variables alone are unsatisfactory in determining Federal Reserve policy choices. Various explanations are then offered and examined. The role of elections, partisanship, and regional variation are examined. After these possibilities are tested, the conclusions will be analyzed and suggestions for further research will be considered.
