If you're new here, you might not be familiar with Indy Neidell and his other work. Not only are we doing 'Between Two Wars', on the events and years leading up to World War Two (of which this video is a part), also we're covering World War Two in realtime week-by-week, exactly 79 years after it all happened. We have now entered the second year of the war. If you haven't already, check out the World War Two Channel for what maybe one day will become the most complete account of The Second World War: www.youtube.com/c/worldwartwo

Cheers,
Joram

If only Tannu Tuva could have ruled over the US. They could easily have stopped the Great Depression by their force of will alone.

America's economy is so good that they can throw their economy at the economy to fix the economy

Put 4 economists in a room and give them a question. You'll get 5 different answers.

I think the best thing FDR did was communicating directly to the normal citizens about his policies. Something like this creates trust and even if you do not agree with a certain policy you are more likely to support him. People now feel that he cares about helping them. I really respect that

Not gonna lie, i thought Indy was about to say "Remember the wise words of Pythagoras: a^2+b^2=c^2"

Economics student here. I just wanted to tell you how well this episode was made from an economic point of view with all three main camps mentioned, but then I remembered what channel I am looking at. You guys can make even controversial topics (like the Great Depression) unbiased and very informative. Thank you!

Awesome coverage of the Bonus Army. Many people in the USA today will say, "if things get bad the army would never turn on the people."

I was at a CCC hot spring this fall. It was great.

The following is how I learned about it:
Herbert Hoover asked Rudy Valle for a song that would make people forget the Depression. Valle wrote and recorded (first) "Brother Can You Spare a Dime, " annoying Hoover so much that he refused to let him visit the White House.
