The Great Depression

"...[an economic] disaster whose causes could all too easily be found in an economic system unfettered by controls, riddled with excess, and often dominated by corporate monsters with no more finely tuned a sense of social responsibility than a bag of rocks."

-- Not a reference to today but a passage from "The Hungry Years: A Narrative History of the Great Depression In America" by T.H. Watkins (1999)
