First we had the New Deal.
Then we had the Square Deal.
Now we have, thanks to Biden, the Big F***ing Deal.

Thank God for Joe Biden.

You're understanding of economics is about on par with GodSands's understanding of theology. Please, read this before further posting. I really can't take your economic views seriously when you haven't the most basic understanding of how markets work.

I know enough to know that Laissez-Faire capitalism is a flawed system. I also know enough to know that FDR's policies helped the common American during the depression which was partially caused by Laissez-Faire policies in the 1920's.

*sigh*

ask a conservative they will cite liberal policies for the bad stuff and free market (and ww2 lol) for the recovery.

this is why economics needs controlled experiments.

most of the time it appears as nothing but partisan blathering mixed with a smattering of assumptions.
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

Lies. Economics can be deduced from logic alone.

Yet you continue to duck my standing offer to debate any Chicagoite/Keynsian/socialist/fascist/communist, etc. on any economic topic.

Actually, there was an even worse recession earlier in the decade. The government did nothing. We fully recovered within a year. FDR's idea of economic policy is destroying food to raise prices, when people could barely afford the food anyway. But farmers benefited from higher prices!
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

I still can't understand how any rational person could even come up with such a retarded policy. It truly amazes me.

...I like how FDR and Lincoln are usually Top Three in the Presidential rankings yet they're in my Bottom Three.

For my worst:

1. FDR
2. Lincoln
3. Obama
4. Wilson

For some reasons, Buchanan is usually ranked about the worst for letting thet South secede. This makes him higher ranked for me.

But FDR saved the Great Depression! It would have gone away in a few months, but he made sure that it lasted longer! The zenith of his economic stupidity was probably when he declared the price of gold to be $21/oz because 21 is 3*7, and 7 is a lucky number.

Then you know about as much as, say, a cucumber. And not a very smart cucumber at that. It is now obvious why you're so socialist. You just don't know economics. Just like Volkov.

"Nevertheless, historians continue to criticize Buchanan for his unwillingness or inability to act in the face of secession. Historians in both 2006 and 2009 voted his failure to deal with secession the worst presidential mistake ever made.[28] Historical rankings of United States Presidents by scholars considering presidential achievements, leadership qualities, failures and faults, consistently place Buchanan among the worst presidents, if not the worst, in U.S. history.[29][30]"
