This chapter elaborates on the mutual interaction between labor markets and the broader economy, focusing on the causes and consequences of the New Deal and its place in the transformation of the Old South into the New South. It first reviews the economic explanation of New Deal policy decisions, and then examines institutions as exogenous determinants of New Deal policies and explains how and why southern institutions evolve.
