Fast forward 2014 answer: Because he's a lazy bastard who thinks he's entitled to one?

Why was the free market so morbid at employing people during the depression years. From 29-38, the UE rate virtually stayed the same.

Why is the Dad unemployed? Did he have a skilled trade?

Hard to comment without knowing the story behind the sign.

It's one of the most famous signs of the great depression. I believe this boy was protesting in favor of the WPA.

Friedman won the Nobel Peace Prize for answering that question.

Just further proving that like most liberals, you have no idea what you're talking about, but never let facts get in the way of a talking point.

I know there are several other Buckeyes on the board - anybody besides me know the real story behind the sign?

Guess a little boy can be excused, but it looks like narcissism, self-importance, and entitlement have come a long way:

Free market?

By 1937 the nation was crawling along under the yoke of the WPA, the PWA, CERA, the CWA, the NRA, the TVA, and just generally...


"Never was a country in the throes of more capital letters than the old U.S.A., but we still haven't sent out the S.O.S."--Will Rogers

...and you're asking why the what didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of effecting an economic recovery?

Better you should ask how it is that the Democrats had been four years straight creating bureaucracy after bureaucracy specifically for the purpose of giving him a job and failed. Because all the free market could do right then was stagger under the weight of it all.

It had nothing to do with capitalism. (capitalism is widely misunderstood)

It had to do with socialism. (and socialists are also Capitalists)

The only real difference is between a Free Market and a Controlled Market.

The only positive thing about your side winning is that the people like you are the first who end up in the ditches.

There was no free market during the great depression. The depression was created and extended by controlled market policies exactly like the ones you advocate. We were fine until the '29 collapse, which was actually just an exchange correction, and would have been short lived until Roosevelt got involved and extended the dip into a Great Depression with the New Deal.

You are trying to blame the free market for problems that the policies you advocate, created.

What was the purchasing power of a 1937 dollar compared to a 2014 FRN?
