The Conclusion looks at the aftermath of the Great Depression and the end of the New Deal and the ramifications following this. The war didn't completely displace the idea of the New Deal. As Roosevelt began to consider what was to happen after the war, he resorted to the ideals of the 1930s. The openly experimental, obviously fallible, always compromised quality of the New Deal programs and their progeny illustrated the imperfect nature of the democracy that they led to. The New Deal's problems invited criticism and more tinkering, and this made way for improvements to the system of American democracy that continues today.
