The 1930s was a decade that began on January 1, 1930 and ended on December 31, 1939..After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the largest stock market crash in American history, most of the decade was consumed by an economic downfall called the Great Depression that had a traumatic effect worldwide. In response, authoritarian regimes emerged in several countries in Europe and South America, in particular the Third Reich in Germany. Weaker states such as Ethiopia, China, and Poland were invaded by expansionist world powers, the last of these attacks leading to the outbreak of the Second World War a few months before the end of the decade..The 1930s also saw a proliferation of new technologies, especially in the fields of intercontinental aviation, radio, and film...In trick-taking card games like bridge, the beer card is the seven of diamonds (♦7) playing card when it is agreed that, if a player wins the last trick of a hand with the ♦7, his partner must buy him a beer.. It is not considered as part of the rules of these games, but an optional and informal side-bet between players...
