Doomed To Repeat History

The Economist has republished its coverage of the 1929 crash online: “If we are justified in assuming that the setback in American industry will only be temporary, we may look forward to steady development in 1930, free from the incubus that has of late been hampering world conditions.”

Oops.

You know, I think the 30’s was when my grandfather learned to like eating raw onions. (As in, raw onions and nothing else. As a meal.)
