Grandaj [[urbo]]j tra la tuta mondo estis frapitaj, ĉefe tiuj kiuj estis dependaj el la [[peza industrio]]. Konstruado estis praktike haltigita en multaj landoj. Farmistaj komunumoj kaj ruraj areoj suferis ĉar la prezoj de la produktoj rikoltitaj falis ĉe ĉirkaŭ 60%.<ref name="USBLS">{{Cite web|url=http://www.bls.gov/data/|title= Commodity Data|publisher=US Bureau of Labor Statistics|accessdate=2008-11-30}}</ref><ref>{{Cite journal|author=Cochrane, Willard W.|authorlink=|title=Farm Prices, Myth and Reality|year=1958|page=15|ref= harv}}</ref><ref>{{Cite journal|journal=[[Ligo de Nacioj]]|title=World Economic Survey 1932–33| page=43|ref=harv}}</ref> Frontante la faligitan mendaron per malmultaj alternativaj fontoj por laborpostenoj, la areoj dependantaj el la [[Unuaranga sektoro|industrioj de unuaranga sektoro]] kia minado kaj lignoproduktado suferis pleje.<ref>Mitchell, ''Depression Decade''</ref>

Economic historians usually consider the catalyst of the Great Depression to be the sudden devastating [[Black Tuesday|collapse of U.S. stock market prices]], starting on October 24, 1929. However,<ref name=Britannica>[http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/243118/Great-Depression Great Depression], Encyclopædia Britannica</ref> some dispute this conclusion and see the stock crash as a symptom, rather than a cause, of the Great Depression.<ref name="Frank_Bernanke"/><ref>{{cite news|title=Economics focus: The Great Depression|magazine=The Economist}}</ref>
 
Even after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 optimism persisted for some time. [[John D. Rockefeller]] said "These are days when many are discouraged. In the 93 years of my life, depressions have come and gone. Prosperity has always returned and will again."<ref>{{cite web|url=http://us.history.wisc.edu/hist102/lectures/lecture18.html |title=Crashing Hopes: The Great Depression |accessdate=March 13, 2008 |last=Schultz |first=Stanley K. |year=1999 |work=American History 102: Civil War to the Present |publisher=[[University of Wisconsin–Madison]] |url-status=dead |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20080323120342/http://us.history.wisc.edu/hist102/lectures/lecture18.html |archivedate=March 23, 2008 |df= }}</ref> The stock market turned upward in early 1930, returning to early 1929 levels by April. This was still almost 30% below the peak of September 1929.<ref>{{cite web|accessdate=May 22, 2008 |url=http://www.gold-eagle.com/editorials_98/vronsky060698.html |title=1998/99 Prognosis Based Upon 1929 Market Autopsy |publisher=Gold Eagle |url-status=dead |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20080517075810/http://www.gold-eagle.com/editorials_98/vronsky060698.html |archivedate=May 17, 2008 }}</ref>
 
Together, government and business spent more in the first half of 1930 than in the corresponding period of the previous year. On the other hand, consumers, many of whom had suffered severe losses in the stock market the previous year, cut back their expenditures by 10%. In addition, beginning in the mid-1930s, a [[Dust Bowl|severe drought]] ravaged the agricultural heartland of the U.S.<ref name=drought>

By mid-1930, interest rates had dropped to low levels, but expected [[deflation]] and the continuing reluctance of people to borrow meant that consumer spending and investment were depressed.<ref>{{Cite journal|first=James|last=Hamilton|title=Monetary Factors in the Great Depression|journal=Journal of Monetary Economics|volume=19|issue=2|pages=145–69|year=1987|doi= 10.1016/0304-3932(87)90045-6|ref=harv}}</ref> By May 1930, automobile sales had declined to below the levels of 1928. Prices, in general, began to decline, although wages held steady in 1930. Then a [[deflationary spiral]] started in 1931. Farmers faced a worse outlook; declining crop prices and a Great Plains drought crippled their economic outlook. At its peak, the Great Depression saw nearly 10% of all Great Plains farms change hands despite federal assistance.<ref>{{Cite web|url=http://drought.unl.edu/DroughtBasics/DustBowl/TheGreatDepression.aspx|title=The Great Depression|website=drought.unl.edu|language=en-US|access-date=March 29, 2018}}</ref>
 
The decline in the [[Economy of the United States|U.S. economy]] was the factor that pulled down most other countries at first; then, internal weaknesses or strengths in each country made conditions worse or better. Frantic attempts to shore up the economies of individual states across the world through [[protectionism|protectionist]] policies, such as the 1930 U.S. [[Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act]] and retaliatory tariffs in other states, exacerbated the collapse in global trade.<ref>{{cite book|last1=Richard|first1=Clay Hanes (editor)|title=Historic Events for Students: The Great Depression|date=July 2002|publisher=Gale|isbn=978-0-7876-5701-7|edition=Volume I}}</ref> By 1933, the economic decline had pushed world trade to one third of its level just four years earlier.<ref>{{Cite book|title=Worlds together, worlds apart: a history of the world from the beginnings of humankind to the present|last=Tignor|first=Tignor, Robert L.|isbn=978-0-393-92207-3|edition=Fourth|location=New York|oclc=854609153|date = October 28, 2013}}</ref>
