Rauchway on the Great Depression and the New Deal

Tweet [1]

The latest episode of EconTalk is Eric Rauchway talking about the New Deal and the Great Depression [2]. I like (surprise) his emphasis on treating the New Deal as an emergent phenomenon rather than a master plan. The discussion and his book [3] are a nice overview of what happened when, particularly in the 1920s, an era that gets less attention than the 1930s.
