I believe it was because after the Wall Street crash in 1929 the economy had some major issues and the government decided the best way to get the economy going again was to try and get the American citizens buying things from America. This meant that their own economy would pick up again but also caused more trouble for other countries as they would struggle more if they were not selling products to America. Hope that helps.
