The depression of the 30’s wasn’t a complete collapse no more so than what we have today. The difference between now and then is currently government welfare programs are keeping the non working segement of society happy with other people’s money.
A record 93,626,000 Americans 16 or older did not participate in the nation’s labor force in June, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.6 percent. 46,000,000 people are on food stamps.
Can you imagine what it would be (will be) like if these people are not fed?
