Warren G. Harding: A Return To Normalcy

with 2 comments


I must admit, I am not a Harding expert. Warren G. Harding is one of those presidents between Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt that seems to be brushed over in our history books.  I was availing myself to a speech delivered by Thomas E. Woods of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. This presentation was part of a conference entitled: The Great Depression: What We Can Learn From It Today. The speech was entitled “Why You’ve Never Heard of The Great Depression of 1920” by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

I’ll give you a quick answer. You never heard of it because there was no extended depression in 1920. The reason why there was no depression is quite interesting and applicable to our condition today.  I’ll set the stage for you.
