they were all effected

the rich lost loads of money and some bankers Commited suicide,but most rich people stayed rich 

The poor only got more poor ,as they became unemployed.Many eneded up working for low wages on farms ,mainly  in California.

the poor got poorer and the rich stayed rich .

So,The poor became stronger believers in  the american dream ,as a sense of hope from this tragic life they were stuck in.
