Friday Movie Night - The Great Crash of 1929 plus 1930's FDR

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!

Tonight's theme is looking at some footage from the 1930's. Whenever there is economic turmoil I personally like to go back to the mother of all economic crises, The Great Depression.

The first film is an hour long documentary which has exceptional analysis, interviews and original film clips from 1929.

The Great Crash of 1929

The below 40 minute video appears to be a movie short or possibly a short made in the 1940's or 1950's. It is about the 1930's and the early days of the FDR administration. There is original footage from the 1930's plus a very amusing segment with a Hoover economist who concludes, with graphs mind you, we do not know if we are coming or going.
