    • History Repeats Itself

      This book was incredibly accurate and complete in its description of that time in the history of our country known as THE GREAT DEPRESSION. It has many applications to our economic troubles of today and it is hard to remember that the author wrote this account in 2007. It is an outstanding lesson in being able to understand what is occurring in 2009 and what is in store for us 3-5 years down the road. This is an important book for anyone who wants to better understand our present mess.
