Successive depressions have hit this country. Each one is hailed and reviled as the worst in history. Each time the newspapers blame the same factors, people make the same gloomy prognostications, the President is blamed, the Republican Party is done for, and so on and so on. Mr. Funk has collected quotations, documented and dated, and any or all of them might have been clipped from todays newspapers. Revealing -- but a bit smart-lecky in the set-up. Good after dinner speech ammunition.
