Farmers suffered greatly, thousands of families who farmed had to sell their farms as it became uneconomical to grow crops. Millions of farmers went to live in the big cities hunting for work. The value of America's foreign trade dropped from $9 billion to $3 billion, as other countries retaliated against US import tariffs. One result of this meant that share values changed dramatically, for example, the shares of the union cigar fell from $113 each, to just $4 each. People blamed the depression on Hoover, as he and the government believed in "Laissez-Faire", which meant that the government took a back seat, did not interfere, and let the economy and companies etc, run with no government help.
