TV host Lee Gates is in a dire situation and asks his audience to buy a stock to inflate its price and save his life. This clip shows the supply and demand side of the stock market: creating demand for a stock will increase its price.
The narrator in the clip explains the impact of the stock market crash on the United States economy: millions of individuals lost their hard-earned savings, and unemployment rose to 25%. As a result, millions of families had to change the way they lived in order to survive. This new way of life was noticeably less comfortable than their old way of life.
