Pot Tax

While I’m working I’ve started listening to an audio CD about the history of the Great Depression and found many things eerily similar to what’s going on today. http://www.amazon.com/Forgotten-Man-Low-Price-Depression/dp/006180729X/ref=ed_oe_a

So far I’ve learned on the first CD:
1. The Stock Market crash in 1929 didn’t cause the Depression it caused a Rescission. But it was the Federal Reserve (directed by FDR) that raised interest rates to 20% making loans very expensive, that turned a recession into a 12 year long Great Depression.

2. Hoover wasn’t a laise fare capitalist as we were taught in school. He talked the talk like one to the Press but his policies were Big Government Republican (like W.)
