    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

TV commercials are hysterically diverse and all-inclusive; the Super Bowl halftime show was an upbeat celebration of cultural and racial unity; the backlash against HB2 is deafening; angry Trump rhetoric has died down; Harriet Tubman might end up on the $20 bill; people of all stripes and ages are unified in their grief for recently-deceased pop-culture icons; Elvis returns to the big screen to outwit the bumbling conservative; the Jungle Book is the top movie, Bigbang continues to lead TV,and the upbeat Drake has replaced the somber Adele at the top of the charts.

Question: How can the boys at EWI continue to call for collapses in the face of such overwhelming (though admittedly extreme) positive social mood? (March 22 Theorist: "1000 to 1500 down from here.") My position on the whole thing hasn't changed: Socionomics has been an outstanding, revelatory discovery, yielding insights which will guide my personal philosophy with laser-sharp focus the rest of my days; and I will continue to lose money following Elliot Wave calls.
