Question Answered step-by-step 1) In what virtually unprecedented way does FDR impact a private…  1) In what virtually unprecedented way does FDR impact a private industry through the direct application of executive power (a move Hoover had considered, only to conclude that he lacked the needed legal authority?)   2) Through a combination of rhetoric, executive orders, and lobbying of Congress, what visible expansion of Big Government does FDR support, which allows one to say that as a Progressive President he has gone beyond Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson? 3) The “switch in time that saved nine” involved FDR pressuring the Supreme Court to embrace a norm-shattering expansion of power at the federal level.  Aside from the questionable policy and legal reasoning involved, is there any valuable constitutional principle for which FDR stands up in proposing to enlarge the Supreme Court — and might we be able to draw on that example today?OR3) As a result of the recommendations of the Brownlow Committee, an instrument is added during FDR’s tenure to the Presidential toolkit, significantly expanding executive authority in the 20th century.  What office is this and how can it help a President?
