Panic of 1837: Information from Answers.com (3816 words)
The Panic of 1837 was an economic depression, one of the most severe financial crises in the history of the United States.
Though van Buren did not engender the Panic of 1837, he was harshly judged (and failed to be re-elected) because he was ideologically committed to keeping the government out of banking regulation, a resolve that many economic historians feel extended the effects of the Panic, which was not over until 1843.
The banking panic of 1837 was followed by exceedingly disturbed economic conditions and a long contraction to 1843 that was interrupted only by a brief recovery from 1838 to 1839.
