Correct response: What is the Lend-Lease Act?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Lend-Lease Act was the FDR administration’s answer to remaining officially neutral in World War II, but still providing aid to allies such as Great Britain in its fight against Nazi Germany. Prior to the Act, the U.S. was operating on a “cash and carry” basis, where countries could purchase supplies in cash and ship them on their own ships back home. However, Churchill’s Britain was running out of money. With Lend-Lease, payment for the supplies could be deferred and could come in any form FDR deemed sufficient. This was able to give the United States extra time to prepare for entry into World War II.
