Rauchway on the Great Depression and the New Deal

The latest episode of EconTalk is Eric Rauchway talking about the New Deal and the Great Depression. I like (surprise) his emphasis on treating the New Deal as an emergent phenomenon rather than a master plan. The discussion and his book are a nice overview of what happened when, particularly in the 1920s, an era that gets less attention than the 1930s.
