Manufactured Crisis, circa 2008-9; Planned Destruction, 1934

"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
- George Santayana

Wrench of kindly provided this reinterpretation of the Jim Simpson flow chart accompanying his critically important article of 9/2008, "Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis."

And yesterday, I was sent the 1934 version, from the Chicago Tribune that used to be.

Is it any wonder, that we heard Obama's people were reading about FDR after his apparently fictitious election? The caption that came with the email:

The more things change, the more they stay the same!
Those who fail to heed the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.
A review of the economic history of the 1930’s demonstrates that
Roosevelt ’s spending programs failed to turn the economy around.
Unemployment temporarily dropped and then rose again in the
late thirties to more than 15%.

It took World-War-Two to reverse that trend

What will it take, this time?
