    These 2 sites should help: http://americanhistory.about.com/od/greatdepression/tp/greatdepression.htm http://ic.galegroup.com/ic/uhic/ReferenceDetailsPage/ReferenceDetailsWindow?displayGroupName=Reference&zid=6d3bef0712b41d824dc3a746da70ef24&action=2&documentId=GALE%7CCX3425600011&userGroupName=mlin_c_montytech&jsid=c9674adb2ee4f7742f7c0575588b0c0d I couldn't find exactly 8 causes but the top 5 are... 1) Stock market crash of 1929 2) Bank failures 3) Reduction in purchasing across the board 4) American Economic Policy with Europe 5) Drought conditions "Historians at the beginning of the twenty-first century recognize a number of causes for the Great Depression, including the following: -Chronic agricultural overproduction and low prices for farm products -Overproduction of consumer goods by manufacturing industries -Concentration of wealth in the hands of a few (often referred to as maldistribution or unequal distribution of wealth; mal- means bad) -The structure of American business and industry itself, which included several large holding companies -Investors' speculation (buying stocks with the assumption that they can always be sold at a profit) -The lack of action by the Federal Reserve System -An unsound banking system" Hope I helped a little bit. Good luck!
