Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat elected president in 1912, created a “New Freedom” program. According to this program, Wilson enacted a personal income tax, toughened antitrust laws and created the Federal Trade Commission. The 1913 Federal Reserve Act created a government-controlled system of 12 regional reserve banks, which strengthened public regulation of the nation’s credit. Wilson also passed laws restricting child labor and setting a maximum eight-hour working day for railroad workers.
