Herbert Hoover and the New Deal



Thomas DiLorenzo, Phd. in Economics at Loyola, lectures on Herbert Hoover and the myth that free-market capitalism was the cause of the Great Depression.

I got to attend a lecture at my college by DiLorenzo. He's pretty cool, a bit full of himself, but honestly a pretty solid guy.

Most of the History professors threw a fucking fit over his analysis of Lincoln though.

Interesting coincidence. I've had this in the hopper for a while. Great minds think alike (though some run a little faster than others...).
