The Great Depression

The material impacts were more devastating than the psychological. It is because so much was destroyed compared to how people were affected psychologically. A case of an elderly civil servant who was from Washington and had bought a land and planted bananas but she did not harvest anything for they become rotten. It is devastating remembering the material she had used to ensure the bananas grew, but it ended being a waste. She recalls the fare she spent daily going there to see and manage the land and considered this as wastage of her resources. The paper analyzes the devastating material impacts as compared to the psychological impacts (Terkel 145).
