To "airnaut" so then you agree that it was not Coolidge's policies that started the Depression. Beyond that, all of your other claims are completely false and made up.

The Depression was created from a recession that the Government tried to fix. The roaring 20's were created by government doing NOTHING to fix a recession.

What you and you ilk will never admit is that FDR's policies kept us in the Depression and may have even been what turned a recession into the Depression.

Read the following:

"How Government Prolonged the Depression " in the WSJ

"Contrary to popular myth, FDR prolonged agony of Depression" in the DN

"The New Deal Debunked (again)" at the Von Mises Institute

"Great Depression" at Library of Economics Liberty

The sad thing is that you and your ilk insist that this time you will get it right and not make the same mistakes while doing the exact same things.
