Great Depression

Hallo Daniel,

just wanted to say thank you for all the great referencing you've done on the page of the Great Depression. Keep up the great work! Don't have much time, but if you need help with something, please let me know. :)

Have a nice day,

After the Depression

Hallo Daniel, a new article mentions the following:

"Yes, boys and girls, that's what the Keynesians were saying back then: how reckless was the new Congress, elected in 1946, to rapidly demobilize, end rationing and wage and price controls, slash spending, cut taxes, and generally to roll back the New Deal."

Do you happen to know if there are any sources on this - on claims of economists, that cutting spending would have catastrophic consequences? Pestergaines 17:31, 19 August 2011 (MSD)

I listened to one of Tom Woods' speeches a while back on this topic, where he read some quotes of economists predicting disaster. If I remember correctly (and I could be wrong!) Arthur Okun was one of the Keynesians that Woods quoted. Daniel Hewitt 02:16, 20 August 2011 (MSD)
Found's the speech Daniel Hewitt 04:23, 20 August 2011 (MSD)
Thanks for giving me a headstart! It referred me to a great resource here. Didn't look yet for Robert Gordon's quote on unemployment being a serious problem in winter 1945-46; but Tom Woods also mentioned Benjamin Anderson predicting what happens after war, that could be interesting. Maybe in the next round. :) Cheers! Pestergaines 03:21, 21 August 2011 (MSD)
