The Great Depression: Then and Now <br />(A Mark L. Hart III seminar)</BR>
THE CONFERENCE IS FULL
Bush didn't want to be Hoover, but he was. Obama wants to be FDR, and he is, in the worst possible sense: he is extending the downturn through catastrophic policies.
The Great Depression seems to have taught lessons that are the opposite of the truth. It is cited as a model for how government should respond, but government policy accounts for why a crash turned to a depression in the first place.
It is urgent that people understand the Great Depression in order that we might avoid a repeat that would be even worse. Given what our leaders are doing to us in the name of helping us might wreck the ability of the economy to recover -- for our lifetimes.
