I also argue that returning today's economy to trend may be considerably more challenging.

The Great Depression on October 29, 1929 took everyone by surprise.
I assess the book's arguments regarding the causes and consequences of these episodes from a neoclassical perspective.
I provide an alternative framework for analyzing these episodes, and argue that a key difference between the 1930s and today reflects the factors that continued to depress both economies after their respective troughs.
FDR, a socialistic president, and Hoover, a hands-off president, were very different politically.
FDR took control of the government and actually did many illegal but necessary things.
The Tennessee Valley Authority was one example of FDR's attempts to recover from the Depression.
Hoover had rejected giving government aid to the building of the damn in Tennessee because he thought it was too socialistic.
