Prosperity Road: The New Deal, Tobacco, and North Carolina

Tony Badger

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This study is the first to trace a single Agricultural Adjustment Administration commodity program and to assess the impact of a major New Deal program in North Carolina. The freezing of tobacco growing brought prosperity to the growers but little benefit to the small and tenant farmer. Given the problems that affected both AAA policy making and implementation, the New Deal's choice lay not between a limited or a radical program but between the limited program or none at all.
