Why were World War 2 and the Great Depression two of the most important economic events in the twentieth century?

The Great Depression was a period of worldwide economic downfall and recession. It started in 1929 and lasted through most of the 1930' s. The event was sandwiched between the two World Wars, which hit the industrialised countries of the world and the United States in particular, the hardest. There was widespread unemployment and rampant poverty and homelessness all over the United States. The construction industry virtually came to a grinding standstill . Agriculture , which was the mainstay of the rural areas, suffered a great blow as the price for crops fell by more than half. People engaged in such occupations as mining and logging were also rendered poor or homeless. World War I, which began in 1914 and ended four years later, had already made a deep impact on the economies of the world, and the world at large, and the United States in particular, was not able to recover from the major global economic crisis until the end of the Second World War in 1945 .
