    Because at first Florida was having a land boom after the speculation, the only reasonable one I thought would be A because It would have died down eventually and the government did raise tarrifs

    Roads and new railway lines supported the growth, and so did government laws keeping state taxes minimal. Tourist destinations such as Miami Beach grew quickly, but the boom did not last long. Speculation raised prices so high that many people could no longer afford to live in Florida, and means of transportation did not grow fast enough to keep up with demand. Then, bad weather struck. A cold winter and a series of natural disasters, including hurricanes, made people think that Florida was not such a pleasant place to live in after all. After 1925, Florida's land boom was over.
