text The Abiding Economics of John Kenneth Galbraith - by Marc Lee and James Galbraith
From The Great Crash, we have of course the conviction that financial panics affect real activity. No one in the 19th century or with experience of agriculture ever seriously doubted that the economy runs on credit or that real activity depends on banks. Only in the higher reaches of academic life could such a thing be denied. The denial, nevertheless, took powerful hold.

text Learning from Roosevelt: His "New Deal" - by Stephan Schulmeister
The Civilian Conservation Corps helped overcome the basic pessimistic mood in society. Within a few months, 500,000 young persons had hope again. The government should intervene in case of an economic emergency... The Social Security Act (1935) introduced unemployment and pension insurance and set up additional measures for the socially weak... The National Labor Relations Board should prevent intimidation of employees by employers and promote the process of collective bargaining.
