News from 1930

Interesting site with news from the corresponding day in 1930.

HT to Steve Keen who says:

‘As Alan Kohler also remarked recently, “one thing that comes through loud and clear is that they didn’t know they were having a Depression” (to which I would add the word “either”).’

    I read that they called it a “depression” because that was meant to be less bad than a “recession”
