Ideally, they sought guaranteed prices, with the state possibly selling their surplus abroad for whatever price it could get. American farmers produced so much that there were surpluses despite the rising population. However, prices had fallen to below those of 1914. Farmers considered the 1914 price to be the ‘parity’ price, by which they meant the price that enabled them to break even on the costs of production. President Coolidge did little to relieve farmers from their distress. More and more farmers saw their mortgages foreclosed and lost the land their families had farmed for generations.

The banks hoped the movement of American funds to Europe would help the victors to repay the loans.
