The Deficit During the FDR Administration : LUSENET : Economic History (and Related Observations) : One Thread

I am doing an analysis for my AP History class on the comparison of Reagan's domestic policy vs F.D.Roosevlet and the New Deal. I'm having difficulties locating a source on info on the conditions of the Deficit at the time of FDR. It would also be greatly appreciated if you had any imput as well that might be important to my analysis. thank you.
