How Roosevelt Harnessed the Great Depression

We recently came across an excellent series of articles on the New Deal by an old friend, historian Phil Scranton of Rutger University-Camden, written for a series called Echoes run by Bloomberg News.  The latest is How Roosevelt Harnessed Economic Recovery, and there are others on How Public Power Jump Started The New Deal and The CCC: Creating Jobs, Restoring Nature, which we liked so much we have included in our own archive. (Unfortunately, Bloomberg just cancelled the Echoes series — too much truth to handle?)

Richard A Walker is the director of the Living New Deal.
