    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

Thanks for an excellent critique.

I agree the next quarter of century would have been sufficient. Anyhow, we will not be around to know if Friedman is right.

If he had been around in the 1ate 1800's and had written ''The Next 100 Years'' in 1905, do you think he would have mentioned television, computers and Internet?
