Your thesis need some review.

Anyways, here is why;

Capitalism, Socialism, and Fedualism are three separate economic systems that have a variety of definitions.

Fedualism is the only system that I would say that has existed in a "pure" form long term, this is because people really only analyzed fedualism after it started changing into other systems. It is basically defined by the religous and military classes being at the top of society, and everyone else including merchants and peasants being at the bottom. Also there was serfdom, the manorial system. This isn't really a part of American history, so it isn't right to say that feudalism "was" used to fix the great depression.

Socialism can be defined two ways: The state owns the means of production, which is totalitarianism. Or it can mean pure democracy, including democratically controlled means of production. The reason I make this distintion is that often people will look at some government program and will call it "socialist" when no actual socialist would ever call it that. For instance many socialists now do not consider the military socialist, even though it is a government entity.

However there are socialists who see the state as an honest representative of the people, and they would look at the military as an example of socialism. So be careful, because there is a difference between a hippy commune, a democratically ran firm, and a giant government organization like the military.

Capitlaism means usually means "what we have now" or "there are markets, and people generally own property". Sometimes capitalism means total capitalism with fully free markets.

So when writing your paper ask yourself how were these different ideas or systems used to adress the problems of the great depression? Feudaalism didn't exist during the gread depression. Capitalism was already there, so unless FDR actually decreased anything in the government, I doubt it can be said it was used. So what is left is state manipulations, which could be considered socialist. He may have interacted with certain groups like the poor or business men, but that doesn't make these interactions socialist or capitalist, just statist.
